Oysters, Shrimp and Crawfish

Oysters, Shrimp and Crawfish, there you have it. Any kind of oysters you will find your home here. For a taste of Cajun Culture don't miss this. Be sure to tour Abbevile. It won't take long, but it is a step back in time, Cajun Time.

It is well worth the short drive from Lafayette to Abbeville to visit Shuck's. This restaurant is famous for it's fabulous oysters and fresh seafood. If you don't like raw oysters (like me), don't miss the fantastic charbroiled oysters done in several different ways. Absolutely the best I've had since Drago's in New Orleans, but with better prices. My other... More

In the area on business and had some free time. Had lunch at this landmark restaurant, first time in 18 years due to not being in close proximity. Determined to enjoy their food once more,I actually drove 90 miles round trip to Abbeville to enjoy the history of this old town and to eat at shucks. The fare is still... More

By far the best fried shrimp we have ever had. Oooh-la-la on the crab cakes too. If you order any kind of appetizer, get the half order of your entree because the portions are generous. Like oysters? You will love theirs! Really can't say enough good things about this place. We got there before the Saturday lunch crowd, which was... More

Our waitress was so friendly and the owner went around to each table to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves and even made... More

We were a large group celebrating a graduation with out of town guests. Shucks provided home town comfort with typical cajun hospitality. Étouffée and bread pudding were favorites. Crab cakes delicious. Friendly employees. Smiles all around. Oh and reasonably priced. Worth the drive from Lafayette.
