We went for a late lunch on a Saturday. The place was hopping, and very well organized. We could get a drink and sit outside while waiting for a table. The clientele was a mix of motorcycle riders, locals, bicycle riders, families sprinkled with a few tourists such as my group. The crabcakes were good, especially the sauce. The grilled... More

Great food, great service. When you put your name for a table, they take your drink order. The owner personally selected our choices which were perfect. You can watch them shuck the oysters and they'll give you a sample. Not to be missed!!

TripAdvisor identified Shucks as a great place to eat in Abbeville, LA. We went and loved it. We knew when we pulled up it had to be good....let's face it. Abbeville is in the middle of NOWHERE...far from everything. So when you pull up to a restaurant and the parking lot is full and even the side streets are starting... More

Located in Abbeville. We are locals and visit occasionally Prices are a little high, the menu is mostly fried seafood. Not the place for a salad and bottle of wine. Good service. The bar seems like an after thought as it is perched in the front of the dinning area. Kid friendly if they like a crowded dining area.

A great sampling of our area! It's a must for locals and visitors to the area! Everything is great! It's the best place to eat raw oysters in Acadiana! Owners and staff are always there and make you feel at home!

We were craving oysters and headed to Shuck's at the recommendation of a friend. We ordered a dozen oysters on the half shell as an appetizer, which were very good. I ordered the Sampler, which included 8 oysters (two each of the four topping options). My favorite of the four were the Candied Oysters (feta & bleu cheese with Sugar... More

What a great meal. My husband had the raw oysters on the shell and a shrimp po-boy. I had the crab cakes. Everything was delicious. He had the bloody mary special which was great and I enjoyed a good cold beer. Service was excellent.
