The shark makes good food. No doubt. The fried oysters are delicious on top of a salad. They make a great empanada as a special as well. Their lunch specials at 6.99 are a great value considering the quality of preparation. The view of the...More

Nice open environment but come early (reserve) because limited space. High class dining. Try the puffer fish bites... well prepared and tasty. Not inexpensive but good environment and very good tasting food. Fair selection.

This place is really something special. The food is fantastic with a great mix of flavors and freshness. We had the cheesesteak biscuits as an appetizer and struggled not to fill up on the homemade bread. We then had the duck duo and tilefish for...More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.
