Open a month, Sharkbite Grille already draws praise, a hard thing to attract in just a few weeks. But owners Scott Driscoll and Kevin Monti merge extensive restaurant experience with a concept that’s bound to please in today’s tough economy.
This sparkling clean, tropical-themed, casual eatery offers something for everyone. Monti’s culinary skills (he used to be with Brewzzi in Boca Raton) elevate the common to exceptional, whether it’s a chicken Caesar wrap or fish tacos (both less than $10 with a heap of fries) or the fresh catch of the day. A raw bar features Middleneck clams, oysters on the half shell, mussels in a pot, shrimp and an oyster pot with 18 oysters in steamed beer.
If that doesn’t spark the taste buds, Sharkbite cooks up authentic New Orleans gumbo - I'll vouch as good as some of that city's best - excellent conch chowder, fresh catch of the day (about $17), chili, ribs, Penne Alla Vodka, burgers, fried shrimp, Philly cheese steak sandwiches and an interesting array of nibblers: chicken wings, fish dip, flatbreads and quesadillas. They also serve two-item-meals for $7.50 from a special menu and kids get to eat free on Mondays (from the Kids Menu).
A large, U-shaped bar dominates one side of a dining area punctuated by tropical scenes, shark images and plenty of flat screen TVs (they're everywhere) to attract sports enthusiasts. Two-for-one drinks are served all day, seven days a week. A few tables are available outside in a courtyard. Sharkbite’s staff is outstanding; they work hard to please. It’s a great neighborhood spot that’s sure to attract all ages – and families - from the entire Jupiter area. Ample parking in rear of strip center.
