fantastic causal dining

best seafood in the area hands down. This place is always good and reliable. Not just seafood; their meat loaf is also very good. It does get crowded but they are very good on estimating the wait time and the bar is good place to wait.

The food was good and if you like beer, you'll love this place for they have an impressive variety. The prices were a little high I thought. So, over all, it was fine but didn't impress me enough to make me want to go back.

Go there often for business or family. Very good food. Still to try the raw oysters but their hamburgers are great. Especially the Chesapeake burger that has a crab cake on it.

Monday all you can eat crab leg special. We (table of 2) got two clusters in one half hour, while tables of 4 got over 6. We asked what was the hold up, we thought it was all you can eat, the server responds with, well you are olnly allowed 2 per person at a time? Food was delicious, but... More

A W Shuck's is difficult to find the first time you visit but quickly becomes a well-worn path as you will very likely return the next time you are in Norfolk. Well-appointed bar area with a great selection of draft beer, the seafood is classic Norfok/Chesapeake Bay/Atlantic. The atmosphere is informal and welcoming. This a friendly, lively place with excellent... More

We recently moved to the Norfolk area and this was the first restaurant I wanted to go to. Several visits later it is STILL the yardstick by which we measure all other seafood restaurants. A huge selection of beers makes my husband happy and the wine list for me is superb too. But the great food, interesting daily specials and... More

One of the best meals I've had recently - I ordered flounder stuffed with crabmeat, creamed spinach and mashed potatoes! I had an Irish coffee and water to drink. Everything about this visit was superb. I was content with the meal and so pleased with the service...all at an affordable price. We only waited 10 minutes to be seated -... More

Easily seated at 1:30 pm for lunch. The food was good, and ample in serving size (except the oysters) but the place is a bit pricey.

Great food, great service, great prices. Well worth a stop or many. The oysters are fresh and tender. We had them grilled but our son has them raw.

Looking for some local seafood and found this recommendation at the Navy Base. As other posts have mentioned a little tough to find but worth it. Arrived around 6 pm and was told the wait was 25 min, Monday was all you could eat crab legs. We sat at the bar instead. My wife ordered the crab legs and she... More
