This establishment is a bar-restaurant. It is located in downtown Radford. Sharkey's Radford does not provide parking; however, there is a free town parking lot located just one block away. Once inside, there is a large seating area with tables and chairs. There is also a very large bar with television screens behind the bar. There are also numerous television... More

The food is good for sports bar type fare; wings, burgers, etc...i loce the bucket of hot wings. Do not go here for casual conversation. It is very very loud. Table conversation is almost impossible. Choose a time for locals, without the students being in town.

I've eaten at lunch Sharkey's twice and I enjoyed both experiences. As more customers arrive it does get loud since it is a sports bar. It took awhile to get seated and for the server to arrive and take our order but, the wings are very good as well as the sandwiches. Prices are reasonable and an overall a good... More

I don't consider this a family place. I think it's mostly for the college students. There is a big bar takes up half of the space. Lots of sports pictures, loud. The food great. It's in a great location, just right down from the college, easy to find, within walking distance.

Housed in a high-ceiling historical building in downtown Radford which is probably over a century old, Sharkey's has a very open, sports-bar / pool-hall feel to it, but with booth seating mostly around the perimeter, My friends and I are drawn to it mainly for the fairly broad range of craft brews and festive atmosphere. What has frustrated me multiple... More

We have heard of Sharkey's but never visited until today. The service and food were adequate, not subpar nor amazing. We ordered some wings (the sweet Thai curry was kind of bland), sweet potato fries, and beers. It wasn't a bad experience by any means, it was def a college style spot. It reminds me of a local / less... More

Have been here several times but this was the first as a couple. Great food and excellent drinks. Every sporting event of note has its own screen. Sit at the last ge bar area or go to the family side and relax. The wings are amazing.

Sharkey's has awesome food. They offer daily specials and long Happy Hours everyday! Jamie Talbert, the kitchen manager certainly knows what he is doing. Keep up the good work.

We celebrated my son-in-law's birthday with family and all the food--breakfast burger (with egg), wings, sandwiches, and desserts were great. Michelle was a very attentive server. The quesadillas were a wonderful appetizer. All in all it made for a great celebration.
