Having visited there several times I found the quality of the food prepared to be inconsistent. One time it was well cooked, drained and not greasy but the next time it was greasy and overcooked. I would be careful eating there again.

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch it was interesting at best. We got a sample of some very salty fresh fish and went with the fried food instead. Our fried shrimp and fish wasn't horrible but it could have used some seasoning. The fries were so soggy we couldn't eat them. Luckily our waitress was friendly. The... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times and only the first couple times were good. After that, it's been so-so at best.

Shucker's is a nice restaurant with a separate bar. It's a little old-fashioned in decor, but once you taste the food you won't care. They always bring a small sample of the fresh fish of the day to your table and it's always delicious. The menu is ample and varied with different fish and seafood. The crabcakes are delicious, but... More

This place is TERRIBLE!!!!!! I see why this place is always sparse. Their food is tasteless, the service is hit or miss, and the management is ludicrous. We had previously eaten here before and it was okay but this time our party had a certificate for a certain amount off the total bill. Management told us after the meal that... More

Our nearby hotel recommended this restaurant and we didn't read the reviews before going. This is the first review I have ever written. Stay away from Shuckers. I've had better frozen seafood at fast food restaurants! I wa served low quality frozen breaded shrimp and flounder. I was offered no compensation when I told the waitress that I could not... More

The desk clerk at the hotel where we stayed "on the way" told us about this place. He said everyone he sent there gave it great reviews. It sure doesn't look like much from the outside, but we had a great meal there. The waiter was very attentive (if somewhat unknowledgeable about Gluten-Free). One meal was fresh grilled scallops with... More
