So we'd just arrived and we're tired, it was close to our vacation house in Edgartown...Sharky's for me is the Applebee's of the island. My family hails from the southwest and Texas, so I'm tough maybe as I've had great Mexican food, but this fare...More

We enjoy Sharkys. It's a fun atmosphere. Great to watch the games. Anything with their steak is yummy!!! The queso and guacamole are good. And we like the salsa. They have a great selection of chicken wings! And I love the pulled pork!

Had a great night hanging out at the bar with Kat while I waited for my food to go. Attentive and very fun to chat with.

We sat outdoors because the smell of the inside was quite musty. Our party of 9 enjoyed the large portions including fresh chips and salsa. The retried beans were a hit, unexpectedly. My grandiose Margarita was great, yet a bit pricey. Would recommend after a...More

Be careful. They will offer you chips and salsa like all mexican restaurants, but this is the first mexican restaurant I have ever been to that actually charges you for it! They also asked if we wanted guacamole which was $6! Rice and beans are...More

Hello! All items are very clearly marked on the menu...unlike the restaurants you mention, we do not offer a cooked salsa purchased in large buckets, we offer a fresh pico de gallo made in house that day and charge $1.99 for the pico and $1...More

Dinner here is a staple when on the island. The food is good but not great. We sat outside on their large patio which is nice. Everyone was happy with their meals and they gave so every fun cocktails.

We sat at the bar, ordered an escorpian bowl and had a blast! The nachos are yummy! The bar tenders are fun to talk with and the atmosphere is fun and lively. We will totally be back!

Martha's Vineyard hires foreign students every summer and teaching them manners should be up there in addition to taking food orders. The wait staff had no idea what was what on the menu or to hold doors open for paying customers or just plain courtesy....More

Good drinks, generous portions, but everyone's stomach was not happy the following day. Hmm... Also overpriced...one drink for three people, and party of 4 bill of $125? Yikes

Drinks and generous portions often contribute to people being very full...we cannot control how much one eats...hmmm...Our prices are some of the most reasonable on island for the extremely large portions that you mentioned. $125 could feed a family of 10 without challenge. Thanks!

Positives: Food was good and portions were big. Negatives: No lunch options, so dinner size portions. We left half our food uneaten. That's a waste. They should have a lunch menu. 5 people, no drinks and 1 person just had a side of guac and...More

Quality ingredients, large portions, great prices and the freshest Margaritas in a 175 seat restaurant that is fun for families, singles, couples, young and young at heart...Open YEAR ROUND for lunch and dinner. This is where the Locals go.
