Had a good fresh fish meal here one night, we ended up going again a few days later! Stay with what you know - ordered the same thing too! Just as good the second time around. Pricing is good and service too. It does get loud towards the back so keep that in mind when asking for a table. Its... More

Pm I ordered Caesar Salad and crab cakes(2) and thought it was pricey at $17.95 and my wife ordered the Caesar salad and clam chowder for $11.95 ($1 extra for Caesar salad) .... More

This was a fun, fantastic meal. Rowena is not only a great manager. she knows her stuff. We sat at the bar and watched her multi-task to the enth degree. She is personable, professional, describes everything on the menu and mixes drinks, directs staff and answers questions from patrons all at the same time. She recommended the crab louie salad...

We had a great dinner at this restaurant. Even with a full restaurant, the service was great and the food was even better. The Rose Clam Chowder is very tasty, probably some of the best we had all trip down the coast of California. The "Oysters Shuckafeller" were awesome, recommend these for sure! For dessert, the Key Lime Pie was... More

This place had it all, great seafood, beer, cocktails, friendly staff, and above all, atmosphere! Out of 4 nights in Carmel we had dinner there twice and also stopped in for drinks ( and snacks) twice, does that tell you enough?

Randie made the best mojito ever, so good I had to order another! She was nice to chat with while we sat up at the bar and ate. I had a veggie burger that was so tasty. My husband got a burger that he said was perfectly cooked and flavorful.

In the heart of Carmel on Ocean Ave., A W Shucks was a great place for a drink and food. The seafood combo was super tasty. The Caesar crab salad was huge with a generous serving of crab! The clam chowder was very good, especially the Rose mix of New England and Manhattan soups. Our Bloody Mary was very good.... More

When is an oyster bar not an oyster bar? When you step into A W Shucks. Despite the busy late lunch, the staff was friendly, our server taking the time to talk to us about the menu. The oysters were wonderful and we went with meals that gave us a variety of things to taste. We had a wonderful time... More
