Sharky’s has been one of the top Neighborhood Sports Bars in Raleigh for over 30 years. After founder Jack Pinkstaff decided to hang up his spurs in 2012, Randy & Simone Wilson decided to take a swing at keeping this Raleigh icon up and running. After a great deal of remodeling and revamping Sharky’s has returned to it’s glory days and then some! Now with over 22 large screen TV’s, outside viewing on a outstanding patio, 6 new Gold Crown pool tables, a great dart area, new furnishings, and an outstanding beer AND whisky selection, Sharky’s may well be THE Premiere Neighborhood Sports Bar in the Triangle.

With Randy & Simone’s New Orleans connection (Simone was born and reared in the Big Easy) The menu is dotted with great Cajun cuisine such as Cajun Shrimp, Louisiana Gumbo, Fried Shrimp and quite possibly the best Shrimp Po Boy in the Country (including New Orleans). On top of that Sharky’s smokes it’s own wings, pork and brisket daily and to say that Sharky’s has great food is nothing less than a gross understatement.

Sharky’s, with pool, darts, corn hole, giant Jinga and giant Connect 4, has to be one of the funnest spots to entertain your friends at birthday parties, corporate get togethers and holiday celebrations. Sharky’s provides outstanding food for catering events. With our traveling “smokers & burners” we can pull up and provide your standard NC cuisine or throw down a Cajun boil of shrimps, crabs or crawfish (in season) for your guests. In other words Sharky’s has gone to great trouble to live up to it’s moniker of “the coolest bar in the world”. Come join us and you’ll see why.
