Wow do we wish St. Louis had a place like Shucks! One of our main reasons to drive to Louisiana was to eat fresh seafood and Shucks did not disappoint. My husband had a dozen fresh oysters on the half shell that were some of the most beautiful we had ever seen. Our server was Carla and she was just... More

When we ate at Shucks it was during crawdad season so it's hard to pass that up. It's location in Cajun Country also contributes to the flavor of the food and ambiance of the restaurant. The place is hopping during the dinner service and they also do a brisk carry out. In spite of this there were enough staff to... More

One of the people taking a swamp tour with us last Friday recommended Shucks to us and we are so grateful! The place was hopping and there was a wait when we got there, but we chose to sit at the bar and we able to be seated right away. All of the servers/bartenders behind the bar were so friendly....

This place has some great oysters but also fantastic alligator! They are usually busy around lunchtime so you might need to arrive early or a bit after the rush. They have a window where you can watch the guys shucking the oysters. Kids love to watch it!

We have eaten at Shucks previously although it has been maybe 5 years & had fond memories of the last occasion. This time however, hate to review but the quality has deteriorated significantly. Ordered the Oyster Sampler - good not great. The problem was with the dozen fried oyster dinner - substantially over cooked especially disconcerting is this is from... More

My husband was in paradise with the size and taste of his oysters. He ate 12 oysters and then followed that with the blackened catfish he loved it all. I had a bisque to start and then the stack which was delicious but best of all was the crab cake, I have never tasted such a delicious crab cake ever,... More

The sampler was awesome! Make your own sauce, spiced as much as you wish! The oysters are awesome. The seafood gumbo was tops as well!
