“Free Range Rude service!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

On arrival, spoke with "sharky" and they must have seen us coming.No one else there, but the options for what to order were limmited to just the snapper. (THat should have been the indication to leave!) Had the two snapper dinner with a I don't remmember the sides. But the property was filled with trash. Along with just three beers, and the total came to ($) approximately $ 65.00. Total ripoff. The waitress was the worst, rolling her eyes at every comment. She stated that the cost was based on the weight. But there was nothing big about the fish. or the preparation to warrent that price. The location is a joke, and ripoff. There are alot of very nice places in Runaway Bay to eat. So skip this dump.

“Great place for a beer and seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

During our stay we went here a lot for food and drink. We really recommend it, the beach is very clean and sometimes calmer than the hotel one.

“Good food but let down by choice on menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

As the title says when we went food was great but there was only two choices on the menu fish or shrimps I went for the fish which was red snapper cook well and the spices on it were great that on its own made up for the lack of choice the drinks were cheep and so was the meal well worth a visit even if you don't get the full menu

“Brilliant food and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

We had the coconut shrimp which was cooked in a curry type sauce and it was absolutely delicious, set with the location right on Sharkie's beach and this place has it all, there isn't a lot to choose from but it covers most things, fish, shrimp, chicken and steak. I thought it was a little bit pricey considering you are at a beach shack. £28 for two main meal's with two sides, two beers and a pepsi, is certainly more than I would have thought to be paying but was well worth a visit.

“Sharkies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

A little authentic Jamaican food... simple, but good. Dinner for 2 for $18 USD We had jerk chicken (good) breadfruit (bland) and some red-stripe. Ate overlooking the bay, it was very relaxing.
