Shucks is one of those restaurants you grow up eating at if you're from South LA. The food and drinks are always consistent and always delicious. The seafood is fresh and seasoned to perfection. The oysters on the half shell are amazing, both raw and charbroiled. If you prefer more turf than surf they've got the perfect steaks for you;... More

My partner and I were touring the area and we stopped to ask several local people where they like to eat lunch. They all said Shucks. With recommendations like that, we had to go!

The staff were very friendly but we had to wait so long for them to check on us and get refills, etc. The chargrilled oysters tasted good but we're... More

This place was on our "gotta try" list, based on marketing and location. A few friends from Abbeville, one who used to work here, thought we would prefer a different place in town, but we felt compelled to give this place a try. We started with a broiled oyster medley. It was nothing special, and not as good as the... More

With a name like Shucks, you know oysters are on the menu. I will admit I had mine grilled, rather raw. However,they could not have been better. The shrimp and grilled catfish were wonderful, as well.

Large succulent lightly battered shrimp were delicious. Save room for the bread pudding. It is unusually good. Sides are limited and lack the home cooked factor.
