About Us

Shark Bites Deli opened in January 2019, in the corner of the Villa Venezia Plaza at Venice Ave and N. Audurn Rd (in the old Subway location). The restaurant has been completely transformed with food made with quality, fresh ingredients—Boar’s Head Meat, bread from a local bakery and more.

Our food is homemade daily, with extra-special attention by Jennifer and her team. Jennifer has always loved cooking for family and friends. Shark Bites Deli allows her to bring quality food to her customers and make new friends! The menu has a variety of fresh sandwiches, salads, desserts, coffee, beer, wine and specials like steak fajitas.

We are the only place in Venice, FL that has Boar’s Head garlic dill pickles!! Just ask, and you’ll get one FREE!

We also do catering and TO-GO orders by phone or online. See our menu here.


Our customers are a snapshot of the Venice community—families, teens, kids, couples, business people, friends, snowbirds, retirees, tourists, and locals. Everyone is welcome! We want this to be your favorite local gathering spot.

Everyone can enjoy the nice weather with shaded outdoor seating. We have room for large groups (up to 10 at one table), smaller tables for friends, date night or your mobile office (FREE WiFi).


Our kid-friendly area has toys, table games, puzzles, stickers and more to keep our youngest guests entertained. Teens can hang out on our comfy couches and watch videos. This allows parents to relax, enjoy a delicious meal and have a conversation! As a bonus, KIDS EAT FREE with our special promotion (1 kids meal for every adult). We hope to be your kitchen away from home!

Shark Bites Deli is locally owned and operated by Rich and Jennifer Searle. We are part of the Venice community, and we aim to create a wonderful experience for our customers.

Open for lunch & dinner Monday through Saturday. Look for our Happy Hour and other specials.
