A neighborhood bar and restaurant smack in the center of family-friendly Brookside, Sharps welcomes an eclectic clientele. The combination of its customers and employees makes for fun people-watching sessions. Happy-hour business types, area housewives and service-industry locals gather here for drinks alongside a sizable geriatric and gay population. At Sharps, everybody gets along.
The breakfast crowd jams this neighborhood joint on weekend mornings. Owners Marty Jenkins and Kim Hamilton and their kitchen crew put out some satisfying evening fare, too — though its wise to stick to familiar fare such as sandwiches and home-style dishes and avoid the more creative offerings, like the inexplicably popular creamy water chestnut soup. — Charles Ferruzza
