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.

We were told not to miss this place, and we were told right. Go early or wait, but it's well worth it. Great seafood, service, friendly management. Don't miss it!

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times because my inlaws love raw oysters. If you enjoy oysters, it is the place to be. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful!
