Our favorite little bar/restaurant in Carolina Beach!

The oysters are delicious and the staff awesome! We love coming here every time we visit Carolina Beach. You have to be lucky to get a seat because it's very popular. Did I mention the beer is nice and cold?! I highly recommend it!

We stopped in for dinner (about 6:30 PM), place has limited tables for families, most of the seating is at the bar. Because of the lack of tables, my family of four waited about an hour to get a table then waited another 45 minutes for our food. I am not complaining about the wait for the food because the...

The food is average at best. My wife got the 1/2 pound steamed shrimp, there were 6 on the platter .... they were not 8-12 size shrimp, closer to 26-35 size. I got a burger.... The prices were high for what you received. Won't be back unless it's for a beer

We stopped in because of the great reviews and I must agree that the food is pretty good. This place is very small and only has three or four tables for groups with kids. Most of the seating is at the bar. Great place if you are with friends or on a date but not for families. Service was a... More

A fabulous place to sit and have a cold beer along with oysters and shrimp. Some of the best and largest oysters I've ever had! A perfect spot at the beach!

It isn't fancy, but oh so good. Our favorite place in the area for seafood by far offering casual deliciousness! I rated average on service, not because it is poor service, but because they are small and have limitations because of that. The staff work their tails off and you should not expect to have waitstaff at your beck and... More

Went to the Shuckin Shack with friends while on vacation. Small little place to stop for a beer and lunch or a snack. It was late afternoon and it was fairly busy but we got a table. Server, who was also the bartender, came right over with menus and took our drink order. Several good local beers on tap, which... More

We ate here for dinner and came back the next day for lunch. There was a bit of a wait, as this is a very small venue, but the food was delicious! The shrimp, lobster, and crab legs were fresh and we will certainly return to this place everytime we are in Carolina Beach!

We weren't expecting it to be such a bar scene. Definitely wouldn't recommend taking children later in the evening. However, the service and food was awesome. We had the steampot and a side of fries. The steampot was AWESOME and the fries were really good too! It is a very small crammed place is my only complaint. Not many places... More
