We overnighted at a local motel and asked for their recommended restaurants. They named several places we didn't want to frequent but when we asked about a seafood establishment, they recommended Shucker's Pier 13. We found Shucker's to be ordinary but the food to be very special. We had the crab imperial selection which we compared to one that a... More

Ordered fried Calamari take out on a Friday night. The Calamari was over battered and simply not good. Tasted like cheap product from a supermarket frozen section. They simply need to do better. The young man who took my order was very polite, friendly, and professional, so I tipped him well as he is not the person cooking, buying ingredients,... More

We have been here several times and the decor needs updating, but we have always had attentive wait staff. The tuna steaks are delicious and served with two sides. The soups are good and the salads are large. The cod is usually fresh and moist. Desserts are expensive but huge especially the chocolate cake which is very rich and delicious.

I tried twice. Crab cakes, soft shell crabs and the sample of fried cod all tasted just a bit off. One crab was a paper shell, so parts were inedible. Huge portions. I swear they served me an entire head of steamed broccoli. (Not necessarily a bad thing; it was almost perfectly prepared.) Slow service, although the servers were very... More

We go to Shucker's every now and then when we get hungry for seafood. Shucker's has changed for the good in the fourteen years we have been visiting, from the decor to the waitstaff, to the prices. The portions are generous (my husband had a LARGE piece of fish, even on a combo platter) and presentation is very nice. You... More

From the street this place did not seem like much. But our friends have been there many times and wanted us to try it. We were told it was a seafood restaurant. It was a nice surprise to find almost half the menu was food other then seafood, including Italian and steaks and chicken. We all had something different and... More

Worst experience I have EVER had at ANY restaurant. 4 generations of my family all met to have a celebration dinner. We had a very nice gentlemen as our waiter. He was so wonderful, I tipped him the full 20% of the bill which was $60.00. HOWEVER, a 2nd waitress came over to help him with our large table. She... More

It had been years since I last visited. On the way south my wife and I stopped on Friday of "Race" weekend. Mid afternoon and seating was not a problem. GREAT waitress "Abby"(spelling may not be correct),was outstanding. Had my heart set on crab imperial,but when it came ,was disappointed. Instead of lump meat in an imperial sauce,it was a... More

I ordered the fried shrimp and scallop basket with fries. Large scallops, large butterflied shrimp. Tasty and not greasy. Good portion at a decent price. The wait staff is The Best. Go here for the food, not the ambiance.
