THE Local Place you are looking for.

For me, this place defines Carolina beach. Casual, fun place to drink some beer and eat some oysters and crab legs. We go every year. Bar staff covers the bar and tables. Friendly atmosphere. Lots of locals who are friendly and create a homey environment. Always a good beer special and a few... read more

Great peel and eat shrimp! Small cute bar. Terrible bartender. She was very unfriendly if the food wasn't so good I'd probably not recommend this place. She could hardly answer a question and it was our first time. She treated us like we were a bother. But the shrimp and fries were delicious. Yes I did try to tell another... More

This place NEVER fails to provide the freshest, tastiest steamed shellfish! Just visited Carolina beach for 2 nights and we ate here BOTH nights;(wish they were open for breakfast!) Caroline (bartender, server, hostess, guide) is excellent. Think we'll do a day trip soon just to eat here (really! It's that good)

Place was packed but worth the wait! Claims Oysters and Crabs! raw and steamed all done perfect wings were good too! Reasonably priced but a bit hot inside as most places in NC in summer but food was worth it!

The Shucking' Shack is great for a variety of dinner and bar foods. We had drinks and snacks there a couple nights in December 2014. This summer Shuckin' Shack was one of our wedding dinner caterers. For the catering we ordered Low Country Boil in which they prepared on site at our rental. Jennifer is very friendly and was thorough... More

Once again the trip to the Shack was outstanding! Haven't been in a few years but food did not disappoint. Fresh, tasty and a good ole dive bar. Thanks for not changing a thing after all these years!

We went with our young family and the food was ok. Hubby had the lobster roll and he enjoyed it. I had steamed crab legs. Nothing special. The kids had fried fish. Meh.
