Small place but really good food.

Great food. Small place with only a few tables and the bar. Had to wait for about 10 minutes for a table, but worth it. Service was great.

We had dinner at the Shuckin Shack while in NC. It was nice but very small and crowded. Our dinner was good. The shrimp were the big ones and they were a little tough but it was a nice place to try. Better go early or you will have to wait!

Small little hole in the wall in Carolina Beach, blink and you will miss it. Authentic beach town feel and has some of the best shrimp, clams and oysters on the island. Nice selection of beers and great drink specials. Very crowded and loud but it is a party atmosphere.

Located in Carolina Beach right on 421. Not a whole lot of parking out front but lots of parking nearby on side streets. This is a classic beach bar that all beach bars are modeled after. The bar is long and there are lots of high tops along the wall. The offer a wide assorted of beverages including bottled and... More

Loved it!!! Very busy place, small, but full of character. I had an ice cold draft beer, raw oysters and Lobster Roll. All fresh and wonderful !! Cocktail sauce was fantastic!!! Husband had fish and chips he loved it. Really enjoyed our dinner here. Will be back.

Loved it! We will make this a regular stop from now on. I actually thought... Would it be too far to drive here just for dinner? A 3 hour drive from home may be a little far. : )

This place is a dive, there are few tables and limited seating at the bar. The bar tenders are amazing and pour a great drink. We called Justin and ordered some steamed shrimp to go. Parking is hard to come by so we decided to take away. However we found a space ordered cocktails and had a couple of rounds... More

Although this establishment was rated number one and was highly recommended, it was not our preference. It was another very small restaurant and the flies were a problem. The seafood did not taste fresh. I had oysters and clams. My husband had the same.The staff was very pleasant.

Great way to start our Sunday. Atomsphere is fun casual and friendly staff. Must stop for out of town travelers if you like seafood.
