Sharky's Cantina wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best Mexican food we've had.. The service was very good. Our waitress was very busy, but she frequently stopped by to see if we needed anything else. We ordered drinks, but we were surprised that they didn't bring out any tortillas or salsa to nibble on. We enjoy Mexican food, and we've... More

We ordered for the kids immediately and the food was quickly served. Our servers were fantastic - checking to see what else we needed, checking on the quality of the... More

Early November on Martha’s Vineyard seemed to be already out of season and Edgartown itself was quite deserted with many of its restaurants closed. So on our recent trip there we stopped at Mexican restaurant Sharky’s Cantina for a quick lunch. As it was unusually warm and sunny we asked to be seated outside and even though the area was...

Very packed and large portions. My mom and I never learn our lesson. We got the taco salads but we could've easily shared one. Great food and atmosphere.

YearRoundRG, Owner at Sharky's Cantina, responded to this review

Sorry to read your review, our award winning chicken wings have been cooked the same way for a decade, because it is a fresh product that is prepped in house perhaps the batch you ordered came in a bit smaller than usual so they seemed more cooked, but fortunately we have had no issues or complaints regarding wings and we...

Most people come to the Vineyard to get great seafood and it is a great place for that, but if you are in the mood for Tex Mex this is the place to go. The prices are reasonable, the drinks are well made, the soda get free refills and the food is worth visiting for! We stayed on the Vineyard... More
