Stay Away from this Place

I see reviews like the one I'm about to write and I wonder how in the world it's possible for a place this bad to stay in business. Rarely do I find a place I don't want to give a second chance. This is one of those. I hate what I'm about to write, but I think this is an establishment that doesn't care to have White patrons. Being that I walk by this place all the time and it's crowded with African-Americans, I attri... view more

I went here for my friends birthday! It wasn't shocking to me that the food was horrible because I had received nothing but bad reviews prior to eating there. Unfortunatly,somehow we still ending up choosing this place out of all the places to eat in the city. I sent my food back and surely was not paying for it. We had a party of about 10 and about 4 people said they finished their food just because they were hungry... view more

Never again

This was my first time going after hearing so much about this bar this past Saturday 4/25/09. It was a girlfriends b'day so we ended up here. First of all the resturant is so small and crowded and it was HOT!! when we asked about the a/c we were told it was broken and they proceeded to put on a old fan which kept turning off!! Next we ordered drinks which were watered down!! i throught it was me but yes the drinks ... view more

Very good soul food....

Great soul food... period. Collard greens were kinda sweet but I loved them. The menu had variety and generously priced. Service was good, although, I felt like the waiter was rushing us with the check and the place was practically empty. Very quiet and the music was great (jammin to some oldies). Definitely a spot to go to when your hungry (right portions). Kinda small, so try going on an off night.

NYC's original gourmet soul

I ve been eating so called gourmet soul food since the shark bar started the craze back in the early 90's. It had been a while since i had been in there since i ve been living in south america. I was in the neighborhood a few weeks ago and stopped in. The food was incredible. Wings were off the hook. Collards were hittin and the catfish was perfectly fried and excellent. I was so pleased I have been back twice s... view more

Perfect atmosphere

Perfect atmosphere when you're in the I just want some kick --- soul food, leave me alone so I can eat type place. Plenty of locals too which tells you that this place is legit, not one of those wannabe type of places that have sprouted-up around the 'hood lately. Highly recommended!

I have been coming to this place since ""98"" and it was ALWAYS the spot. The waiters were always nice, there were always good looking people around and you could be sure to see a star or two. Well boy have times changed and I can guarantee it has something to do with the help. This is my second time back since ""02"". I came twice with my girlfriends last year and was wondering why it was so empty on a Thursday ... view more

An Institution

The place is an institution, songs are written about it, it has been in several books and written up as the place to be seen. I love it. Been coming here for years and just recently had the pleasure of introducing my kids to the wonderful food and atmosphere. I hope the place stays around long enough so they can take their kids.

One of the best dining experiences I have ever had

I have been to The Shark Bar Restaurant numerous times over the past six years and I always have a great time. The atmosphere is festive and I always see celebrities from all industries: music, film, sports etc. They are always at the Shark Bar and seem to be very much at home there. I would recommed this place highly specifically for the food, which is oustanding.
