When you specialize in something, you better be good. Shucks broke the code. Their fried oysters and fried shrimp are done to perfection. Service is fantastic even with a crowd. Wait staff is friendly and pleasant. Good job Shucks!!

This place is the real deal. I was sold the second I walked in. The place was packed, people standing everywhere waiting to be seated and the talk amongst the crowd was how good the food is!! I made my way to the hostess and was greeted with biggest smiles and most outgoing personalities anyone could ask for. Especially Mr.... More

Shucks is off the "beaten path" for most people but if you get a chance go check them out! The food is SUPER good!!! My wife had the Oyster dinner and I had the best shrimp/oyster Po Boy I've ever eaten. Nice decor.

Super fantastic food, been eating with this restaurant for over 20 years and NEVER had a bad meal. We drive from Biloxi, MS to Abbeville Shucks [a 3 1/2 hour drive] at least 3 times a year just to eat the oysters , gumbo and bread pudding, it is just exceptionally good food. Fried oyster platter has French fries on... More

Very popular venue in Abbeville, LA. Good food, but the service is in need of some "tweeking"!! The night we were there, the place was packed. We had trouble getting the attention of our waitress from time to time. and I noticed that, at times, our waitress was completely across the room on the other side of the restaurant waiting... More

My parents took me to eat out at shucks. I came in from Houston for a visit. I'm celiac so before I order I always go into a spill about what I can and cannot have. Our waitress was familiar with the disease and said she has a customer who comes in all the time with the same problem. So... More

This is a must do when in the area. The menu is extensive but you just can't go past the oysters. We had them natural but they also offer a number of different toppings to tempt your taste buds. All the tables were occupied when we arrived but were able to sit at the bar to eat.

Many places around the country try to make Cajun dishes; Shucks in Abbeville is the real thing. Using the freshest local seafood and adding other regional specialties like Cane's Steen Syrup, Shucks creates dishes you will never forget. Best of all they show you true Louisiana hospitality that makes a meal a special occasion.

This is our 3rd time here and the food is unbelievable. The service is great also. The crab cakes are fresh and you will clean your plate.

I was in Lafayette for a sporting event with friends and we were looking for oysters on the half shell. After asking around at our hotel we were given a name of a local place. Not getting a real good vibe about it, I did a quick google search and found Shucks. We thought we would give it a try.... More
