Great seafood

We ate the crab cakes and the charbroiled sampler. All of the different toppings were very tasty. The service was a little slow at first, but got better. The restaurant was very busy.

Shucks has some of the best oysters around. I wanted to visit for years, but Abbeville is just far enough to make the trip inconvenient. I finally made it last week, and I was pleasantly surprised at the consistency of large oysters, friendliness of staff and family atmosphere. I would have rated the visit 5 stars, but many of the...

Shucks has been around a pretty long time & that says something in this area. My family & I have been going here since it opened. if you order fried oysters, you can get ready, they will bring you the biggest plate of oysters you've ever seen. Now with the charbroiled oyster, Shucks has them several different ways & I've... More

My husband and I shared the charbroiled oyster sampler (appetizer) which was out of this world. Wonderful seafood dinners followed.

We were on our way back to Houston and stopped at this place because we wanted to try some typical food of the area and because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. The inside looks like a diner-bistro-kind-of-restaurant, which we didn't expect, but didn't mind either. Actually I was looking for some boiled crawfish, but they only had fried crawfish tails...

Shucks was recommended by some locals. I'm not a big oyster person but our travel mates were. We had a platter of baked oysters they were topped with a variety of different mixtures, each and every one excellent and flavorful. Shrimp patty awsome! Definitely a lot of great seafood at very reasonable prices! Very enjoyable food but in a modest... More

We came from a few hours away to try this place for the first time. We don't really have a great selection of fresh oysters where we live. We love oysters & are always looking for new places to try. Shucks was one of the best places we've had oysters in a long time, & we are used to eating... More

I'm celiac so I have to be careful. They take care of me every time. I'm not a local but this is my original home and the food does taste like Cajun food. I'm 100% Cajun. I got combo shrimp and catfish broiled with boiled potatoes. I normally don't order fish at restaurants because they tend to be very fishy... More
