11:00AM Red Tide Update on Monday, 8/20:
Thank you all for the support & uplifting comments about yesterday’s closure, we truly appreciate it. Right now, the respiratory irritation is at a 1 (very slight) and the dead fish smell is at a 3 (moderate) with winds coming out of the Southwest. We are going to be open for lunch at 11:30AM but will be closing at 4:00PM based on the weather forecast indicating a increase & shift of winds. Sharky's will be OPEN for lunch and dinner tomorrow, Tuesday, August 21st, with Trivia on deck at 7:00PM.
Fins At Sharky's will be open for dinner at 4:00PM, with a spacious inside dining room offering a quite pleasurable dining experience. We recommend making reservations by calling 941-999-FINS. And don’t forget about Fins Frenzy - lite bites & drink specials from 4-6PM!
Thank you again for the love & support during this difficult time - we can’t wait to see you once the red tide dissipates!
