Simply the best. Nothing is fried. The seafood stews are amazing. The fresh crab is over the top. Great service and totally the best fresh seafood on the coast.

Had one meal there and enjoyed it. Very small place and a little quirky but the food is good and the prices very reasonable. I had the cioppino and it was really good. My wife had the red snapper special and was disappointed in it but it looked good to me.

Just go to Shark's. It will be the best food decision you make in Newport, seriously. We went there for dinner this week after a mediocre dinner at Georgie's, and we loved Shark's so much, we wound up eating dinner there two nights in a row! Steamed clams: amazing quality, in a broth so addictive you will want to drink... More

I make it a point to come to sharks every time I come to Newport. There's a reason for that. They have without a doubt the best cioppino on the west coast of the United States. It's down on the Newport waterfront it's not hard to find and it is definitely worth it. If you miss it shame on you.

I would probably only rate the food here a 3 or 3-1/2 but the staff pushed it to a 4. They are super friendly and kind and are anxious to please! When you go, get the Cioppino! Really yummy!!

We love Sharks and there are some awesome reasons.... The top of the list is that we are never disappointed. Last night we had the steamer clams, salads, MaiTais and Martinis, fresh bread (for dipping), two of the seafood curry, a shrimp pan roast, and the fresh crab entree dinner!! Every item was wonderful. Karyn stayed busy serving everyone and... More

Seafood consistently outstanding. Menu doesn't have a wide variety of options, but those available are spot on fresh and delicious.

This cozy restaurant makes the most of every square inch, and doesn't feel crowded. We arrived just before the dinner crowd. I wish I had asked the waitress's name -- she greeted everyone with delight and maintained the perfect level of interaction with customers as more and more of them arrived. We had "regular" size bowls of crab cioppino. A... More
