A must visit! The slow roasted pork is so good! We ordered the corn, rice and beans, cold beer and sat back and had the best food we had the entire trip.

I've been staying in Runaway Bay for years since I've been regularly visiting Jamaica. I want to love Sharkies but somehow the restaurant disappoints me every visit. The food is great! I love the chicken and my favorite is the shrimp pasta. However, the service is slow, food is a bit overpriced, and if you call early when they open... More

So I came to this restaurant with the expectation of fresh fish cooked there and then considering right by the sea. However to my surprise the Fish came out almost cold.

We waited at least 2 hours for jerk chicken at this restaurant! They ran out of chicken and messed up the order! It was our second day there and really wasn't anyplace else close by to get food or we would have left.

Lovely place to chill out with the feel of real Jamaica. The staff are very polite and helpful. The food is good once it finally arrives. If you are in a hurry & hungry this not the place for you.

Once we got the food, it was good. Prices seem a bit high. A lot of dogs on beach where we ate, but nice to be able to eat on beach. Several photo op spots throughout the restaurant. We had curry and love Bammy! If you are hungry, then order soup because that comes first.
