I have travelled to Victoria several times for work and always make a point to stop at the Shark Club for a steak sandwich. For a place that is a sports bar, the food is exceptional. I have had other items on the menu ( burger, spaghetti and meatballs) all of which are great, but my favorite is the steak... More

Generally I wouldn't think that a chain of pub type food would be good, but having eaten at the Shark's Club almost nightly for over a month, I was shocked that every single meal I had was great! The menu was varied and I never got tired of it. Impressive and we'll be back for the next working trip! Thanks!

A group of friends and I went to the shark club for wings last night. Our waitress was scare and kept saying that the lack of waiting staff was the cause of the slow service. However we saw her at the bar drinking and talking with other staff members frequently. It took over 20mins to get our drinks and over... More

Have visited this restaurant on several occasions, hoping each time it would improve and the food and service get better. Regrettably, no such luck. Poor service. Food that ranges from bland to cold. Maybe if you are drunk you might not notice.

Went on wing night and the place was packed and loud. We were lucky to get a table quickly and only had to wait a few minutes to be served. Surprisingly the wings were good and the pretzel buns were tasty. The kitchen staff did a great job on such a busy night!

This place is like the one in Vancouver near BC Place and Rogers Stadium where the Vancouver Cannot's play. You should pick up I am not a Canuck fan - go BRUINS. Nice place nice vibe. It's an upbeat pub, just having a cola while waiting for Edmonton Hockey club to show up. The facilities are warm and friendly, this... More

Ended up going here for wing night-Wednesday as a last minute change of plans by our friends. Awesome selection of wing flavors and other appetizers that were cheap for Happy Hour. We loved the Dirty Chips, but when our friends ordered them, the waitress returned 25 min later to tell them that they ran out of them, so they had... More

This place is so cool the food is pretty good as far as pub grub goes.service gets really spotty when the house is full which is almost allways. the burgers are freeking massive and taste really good,the piles of fries you get stuffed into the soup bowl seems like it will never run empty.
