VENICE, Fla. - Sharky's on the Pier in Venice is welcoming a new addition upstairs. Friday marked the opening of the new "Fins" restaurant.

The restaurant features dinner only. Fins employees tell ABC 7 that the restaurant features an 800 degree, perpetually burning mesquite charcoal oven -- they say it's the only one on the west coast of Florida.

To stand out from the original beach bar at the site, the new restaurant offers a “polished casual” atmosphere, according to co-owner Justin Pachota.

Fins opens following 14 months of construction.

It is located at 1600 Harbor Drive South, in Venice.
