Love this place! They are very accommodating of folks with food allergies. The food is always creatively assembled and made with local ingredients. Can't go wrong with the bison burger, fish tostada, and beet and berry salad, to name a few regular items. They try...More

It was wonderful to find this, "couldn't be better" restaurant open during off-season in OC. With reservations, we were seated immediately as we walked in, albeit crowds without reservations were backed up out of the door. The food was top of the line in preparation...More

There were 2 of us eating on a Monday night in February. It is a very casual, warm, and relaxing place. For an appetizer, the pickled shrimp were wonderful and very different. The fried oysters were a good size and nicely breaded. We had swordfish...More

I have always had wonderful fresh food at The Shark. Local farmers are used for ingredients so you know everything is very fresh. I had a bacon, cheeseburger with sweet potato fries the other evening and it was delicious. Prepared lovingly and just scrumptious!

The menu changes each day. We were there for "Happy Hour". The angry shrimp, dumplings, and clams are great. Love their beet and berry salad and all their soups.

Great atmosphere. Mackenzie was a wonderful server. Loved the appetizer with steak on a steamed bun/roll (can't remember the name). Highly recommend the sangria.

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.
