My husband and I enjoyed NYE dinner at the shark. The food was fresh and amazing. The crispy oysters melted in your mouth - not the least bit chewy. The soup of the day was filled with amazing flavor. For the 2 appetizers, 2 entrees...More

We were quickly greeted and seated at a table by the back window which overlooked the water. View was wonderful, top of our table was sticky, service was good but food was not. We ordered crab cake sandwiches and they certainly looked appetizing when they...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.
