Pleasantly Suprised!

We hadn't planned to stop here for lunch, but our first choice in the area was not available. The atmosphere was cozy, but the booth seats were a little too cushy and my mother was not very comfortable. It was my husband's birthday, so we ordered dinner for lunch. There was a lot of fried fish... read more

Haven't had a bad meal ever. At first I thought this might be less than optimal for fresh seafood (our ultimate goal) but not only the seafood, but the prime rib and well, everything on the menu so far, has been great! Always happy, professional and timely service too. Give this a try if you've ever driven by and wondered..... More

Family type restaurant which has a quiet atmosphere and average food. Most entrées are fried which makes fish tough slabs. Soups are good but service is slow. However, prices are average and the staff tries hard to please.

On 10/29/15 we went to Dover from down state and our friends came from north, Maryland to meet for lunch for a birthday at Shuckers. Shuckers was closed, no one around, door locked and not signs posted as to why they were closed. We are very disappointed. Are they still serving lunch during the week? Their hours on line shows...

5 years ago this was the go to place for fresh seafood. Now the restaurant is run down in need of a facelift and taste like the seafood is right from the freezer. Server not interested in service. What a let down from the old days.

First if you can sit in a booth, they must have just refoamed them. Can you imagine what sitting on a cloud is like? That is what I compare it to. :) Staff was very friendly and helpful. Dinner was clams casino, clam chowder, and rockfish. We were so pleased with dinner that it was worth the 45 minute drive!... More

Stopped to grab cream of Crab soup and a Caesar salad today. Very nice waitress took my order and was back in no time.. I thought the bags for the 6.00 salad was a little light but went to my truck anyway. Upon looking in the bag, the salad was the size of a small side salad. $6.00 for a... More

The interior is run down and dirty. Food was mostly pre-prepared items, nothing fresh or made in house. During the course of our meal my wife bite down on what she thought was a piece of wood? Here it turned out to be a cigarette butt in her cream of crab soup??? We informed the waiter right away and he... More

I loved the decorations in the restaurant and It was a really nice and relaxing atmosphere. The seating was very comfortable. I had the stuffed shrimp and my boyfriend had shrimp and scallop Alfredo. The shrimp was stuffed with huge chunks of crab meat which is how it should be and the plating was gorgeous. I will definitely be back... More

Food was very good ! Seafood was very fresh, Prices ranging from reasonable to high. If you like fried seafood it was not as expensive as other dishes offered on the menu
