Went here with friends. We all lived out of town. The place is open until 2am as we needed a late dinner. The staff was great. I am a vegetarian and was surprised that they had a vegan chicken po' boy that was out of this world. The sides were excellent too! My friends all had the oysters and crabs,... More

It's great to go to a place that makes you feel welcome, especially when you're on a business trip and dining alone. Service was great, and my meal of a generous Greek salad and 1/2 lb of steamed shrimp. It was great! Highly recommended!

First, thanks to the earlier reviews that pointed me to this place. Particularly helpful was the fact that it was in a shopping center and difficult to find. If you have directions pull into this shopping center and keep going to the section away from the road in which you cannot see the store signs until you are right up... More

Drove around the block several times before spotting AW Shucks. So glad we found it. Ate lunch on first visit. Loved It! The fresh fish was indeed fresh and magnificiently prepared. The lunch special was a good value. Tried the crab chowder. Loaded with crab. Yum! The feta/tomato salad was fabulous. It was tomato season and you could tell that... More

Me and the hubbs have been coming here for years. The food and service are always consistent. I know that food will be fresh and delish. The servers are knowledgable and most of them have worked there for years. Love me some A W Shucks!

This place is not easy to spot for out-of-town visitors since it is located at a far corner of a shopping plaza. We almost gave up looking for it. Fortunately we called the restaurant and the staff there helped us find it. We are glad that we had a chance to try this place. This restaurant does not look too... More

Service was ok, waiter seemed to get lost occasionally. Drinks were all done well and pretty good beer selection. Had the Oyster Po Boy and it was very good.... More

Service - Very Good; Food - Way above average; Location - Convenient to downtown. O.K., that's the simple review. Have been eating here for about 7 years. One of the few places to get raw shucked oysters near downtown. Fish dishes are always cooked well, imaginative and in decent size portions. The menu offers a lot of variety, and the... More
