On point!!

We got to the shuckin shack around 5pm and it was already pretty full. The restaurant is very very small but we didnt have to wait long for a spot at the bar. We had the raw oysters and they were the best weve ever had. Very fresh. We ordered the lobster roll and the shrimp roll both came with... read more

FANTASTIC WINGS. Crab legs were great as well, but the place is just incredibly small. Many people were crabby since they didn't get seated ( we came at a great time and got seated right away.) Waiter had a great personality! Owner/ Manager made sure that everything was good and made sure our drinks were full! Wouldn't return just because... More

We went last night about 8 pm. Still busy, had to wait for a table but when I know how good it is, I don't mind.

Love the seafood. The place is always busy and for good reason. The seafood is simply prepared and outstanding.

Really good laid back oyster bar. Can be busy winter or summer. Limited seating other than the bar. Nothing is fried other than french fries.

Definitely are bar...not a place for kids in the evening. There are limited tables but if you are ok with sitting at the bar, having a beer and great seafood this is your place.
