This place is good to grab a couple drinks and people watch. Mix of locals and tourists.

We were on a table near the front entrance, had a good view of the outside street,beach, even the sunset. No waiter to be seen, so ordered off the bar.

Loud, hip, place, good for a "scene", but poor service and standard overpriced bar food.

This is a great spot if you are looking to spend some time with family or friends and grab a couple drinks. Thursday nights are the best nights out its not overly crowded.

A group of 7 adults went to have dinner and drinks there a few weeks ago. The menu is ridiculous. It is way too busy and it's hard to figure out what to order. The food was not that good. Fajitas came out cold. Rest of the food was just okay. The drinks were weak and the service was just okay. We would never go there again. We were very disappointed. I would not recommend it if you are looking for a good meal.

If you want to hang with people pretending to live on the peninsula, watch "bouncers" with cocked flat-brimmed hats inciting fights, 30-somes claiming to be Justin Bieber's relative, while a UFC fight blares in the background, then, by all means hang here.....and stay here.

I would maybe rate it a 1.5, if possible, because the tacos are pretty good...pretty good. Other than that, if you go, be prepared for long stories from everyone pretending to be "the next big thing."

Just don't forget to bring your flat-brimmed hat.

Our son wanted Fajitas...and Monday was Fajita night...so we headed into Sharkeez. Well, first off, this is not your typical "family restaurant" lol...but to our surprise - the food was awesome! And as our family says, we got a number of free "shows" while we were there. One of the best values in Newport, buzzing atmosphere.
