I really enjoyed my Shrimp dinner. My husband got a combination of oysters, fish and scallops. He commented that all was very good except the oysters. They were VERY small.

Service was excellent but the food was just OK. The shrimp had more breading than shrimp. One plus is it's a "Coke" restaurant rather than Pepsi!!

Party of six - The crab dip was pretty good however pita chips weren't the best for the dip. She crab soup was not impressive would definitely not recommend. The scallops were very good.

We went to A.W shucks after reading some of the reviews and passing it on the trolley tour. We had a very nice time once there. Greeted immediately by the server and hostess. We had the crab dip appetizer (which I highly recommend) and then enjoyed each of our entrees. We didn't get dessert - we went to Hagen daas... More

The food and the service were wonderful! The hush puppies with praline butter were to die for. The creme brulee was exquisite! However, when eaten in 80 degree stifling heat, tis not fun.

Staff friendly and helpful. Kept our drinks filled. Bacon stuffed shrimp was absolutely wonderful and came with red rice and fresh green beans. Husband steam pot was plentiful. Oysters were ok, didn't taste as fresh as some I have had before. All around good experience.
