Anyone who's been out in downtown Blacksburg on a Friday or Saturday night knows Sharkey's Wing & Rib Joint is one happening place. via Roanoke Times

gonna be nice to have one in Radford but the only drawback will be having to drive from there after a few beers. the Radford City police are a bunch of pricks. all they do is wait for locals to leave any bar and harass them but leave the college kids alone. i live across the bridge in Fairlawn good thing they can't patrol this area.

Alright Fred...I'll speak on half of the Radford University population and say that you sir, are what we consider a townie. We do not like ya'll at our bars in downtown Radford, and the Radford Police are only doing their job. You're criticizing them for keeping the road clear of drunk drivers leaving bars? If they're pulling you over, they have reason to. If they give you a ticket...guess what...there is a reason behind that one as well. Sorry to bust your bubble buddy. Also, they don't "leave the college kids alone." If we're acting stupid, or doing something wrong, we will get pinned for it just as you would.

well Tim, I am a Townie and since when do you consider the bars in Radford to be yours.? and further more Sharkey's will have far more locals in it than RU students so you and the rest of you spoiled brats might as well get used to it. its not gonna be like Rileys thats your bar so stay there if you don't like locals. if you think sharkey's is going to be for you only you are mistaken. guess who will support them when you brats leave.? us so called Townies. and further more i say i speak for the Townies when i say ''Stay the hell off of our river''

Without the RU, you townies would have no sharkies or BTs or any bar for that matter. Radford would be just another no name useless small town. You should be thanking the school and students for attracting businesses like Sharkeys.

Hey RU Student from Durham,
It's people like you who make a bad name for RU students. Many of us came to the NRV for college and chose to stay--I am a successful VT graduate, and I highly resent your bratty insults to people who chose to stay in a beautiful area. I moved here from a city, and will continue to support the NRV business long after you and your RU undergrad degree have moved onto "bigger and better things." Good riddance.
