Seafood was calling our name

We had hoped for a seafood shack, but ended up at this family restaurant. I had a very good bowl of crab soup, and a huge side salad. But the crab and lobster ravioli was very nondescript and difficult to distinguish the flavors. Desserts were huge, and looked good, but we didn't have any.

Husband and I looked forward to coming home and going to Shucker's as it was always our favorite spot to meet friends for dinner. We were so disappointed by the food we received. It tasted like it was purchased frozen and there was nothing fresh about the food we ordered. Will not be returning on future visits home, so sad.

Took my wife to dinner here looking for fresh seafood. Should not have bothered. Fish seemed to be mostly frozen and nothing special for the price. Service was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere "sea shore trendy," but if you are hankering great seafood, look elsewhere.

Shucker's used to be better. I won't be back. The quality of the food was not good. It was pricey, especially for such a disappointing meal.

Myself and my co-worker were in Dover on business. We always try to eat at non-chains to experience the local culture if we can. We are flexible with waiting around for good food, but we were at the restaurant for 1 1/2 hours and only a few of the tables were filled. They were slow to bring us our first... More

Our family went for a duel birthday party/dinner at 2:30pm on a Sunday. I chose this restaurant based on the good reviews it got. The bartender that served us was very nice but maxed out because she was waiting on most of the tables as well as the bar til the pm servers came in. She warned us that it... More

Saturday night 8:00 the weather was nasty and we were traveling. Plenty of parking, plenty of seating available. Really nice server. My wife and I started with the deep fried sampler ($17.00 I think) . Everything was really good and a great mix, shrimp, mozzarella sticks, mushrooms, hush puppies, corn something or other, clam fritters and broccoli cheese bites. We... More

I must agree with some pay reviews. This place is a little expensive. The staff are great. But I'll be coming back specificity to eat clam chowder. It was the least expensive part of my meal and the best part. Keep it coming please!

I usually don't write reviews but I was VERY impressed by the upgrades! My previous visits the restaurant had a very shanty...shack like feel. When I had dinner last night the place was BRIGHT and CLASSY. I coined the décor as "Chesapeke Glam", clean teal, with silver and white with a few splashes of purple. Tea lights on every table...
