This may be the best local bar in Raleigh. – Well now theres been no smoking for years. Under new management. all new carpeting, all new gold crown pool tables, completed renovated restrooms. The food is still great, in fact the hamburger may be one of the best in town. Most of the bartenders have been there for years so by the time you come around the corner your beer is on the bar. Sharky's has a great set of "regulars" who, most of the time are invariably there. THey have APA pool leagues, Dart Leagues and a card night and during football season you can barely get in there. They've got 3 giant TV's and added several new 40-50" hd tv 's two large screens plus added 4 inside the bar.
They have $2 specials on friday and a new assortment of IPA's and locally brewed beers. Come on back to the NEW Sharkys!!!
If you don't like fresh air, then Sharky's is the place for you – I expect bars to be smoky, but this place took it to a new level. It was a weekday night, and the place was half empty, so I don't know how bad the smoke gets on weekends. If you are a smoker, than obviously this is not a big deal.
The pool tables were not the nicest, with worn mats and small tears. Our table seemed slightly sloped as well, but this is hard to tell. I think this is due to the floor, which is definitely NOT level.
I didn't try the food, but unless you like to smoke while you eat, I wouldn't recommend it. Also, there is limited parking out front and three spaces are reserved for the adjacent gas station.
I highly recommend the Green Room in Durham if you get a chance. It is larger and the tables are much nicer.
This is not your average pool hall food – You would not expect this quality of food from a pool hall. I have had several things on the menu and have not been disappointed yet. In fact, I've been constantly amazed because each dish has been as good as the one before. It's not that it's just above average for this type of establishment...it's great food, on par with many of the areas "mainstream" restaurants. I've also nominated them for french fries. They are the big fat steak fries...yum!!
