This is absolutely my wife's favorite place when we vacation in Carolina Beach each summer, and we have always posted excellent reviews on TA.This year was different...We stood in the crowded aisle for over 45 minutes while the "regulars" were given seating priority over us and others. The place is very small to begin with and apparently the way to... More

It's hard to get seating but the bottle caps are great. Very worth a visit to the Shuckin Sack. Also have had oysters and shrimp which were very good and fresh!

The food truly was delish! But the two servers lack the proper communications skills between each other to provide a professional dining experience. We ordered one beer, got 2. We ordered wine twice, got none. And there seems to be no seating policy. Just stand close to where you want to sit to eat or someone off the street will... More

We ate here last summer and LOVED it! Just a few tables, but it's worth the wait! Fresh crab legs and shrimp was awesome! We are headed back there next month and this will be first on our list! Can't wait!!!

Having read the stellar reviews we decided on this restaurant. Please understand that this is a BAR that serves some food...not a restaurant with a bar. I don't drink-I came for the seafood I'd read stellar reviews of. We got there early and we are GLAD we did to avoid the rush. We sat at the bar as it was... More

Make some time to check this place out. Their cocktails are fresh and fabulous. Their sea food is amazing.

I was excited to find a restaurant with seafood, gluten free fries and gluten free beer! I had a half pound shrimp with the fries and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Food was excellent!!! If you're looking for a very casual environment and gluten free options, this is the place for you. Thank you Shucking Shack for one of the... More

We always try to visit the Shuckin Shack when we're in Carolina Beach. The seafood is fresh and the taste cannot be beat! Seating is limited but worth the wait and the Bloody Mary's are the best! This is hands-down our favorite place for oysters and steamed shrimp- never tasted better!

Oh man, we went for lunch and I tried the lobster roll. Amazingly tasty lobster salad in a buttered white bread roll. To die for!

Do you want great steamed seafood? Do you enjoy a hole-in-the-wall and local atmosphere? If you said, "yes," then, Shuckin Shack is for you. Shuckin Shack has two locations in the Wilmington area and is going to open in Charlotte soon. It's expanding because it is good. I hope the expansion doesn't change the quality of the food, which happens... More
