went today with a friend and got the tomato and crab chowder which was excellent. Also ordered flash fried calamari and stuffed jalapenos with crab meat, whole shrimp and mozzarella cheese. The calamari was good nothing special and kind of a small portion for the price. The jalapeno poppers were ok but would have been better if they peeled the... More

This is one of our favorite hometown eateries. The food is consistently very good, the staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is always lively! They really know how to fry fish and the French fries are outstanding too. Try the homemade soups, always something a little out of the ordinary and always great. An extensive variety of oysters and... More

My wife and I are here with friends. They recommended it because we needed a place close to downtown. Glad they did. We split an appetizer of oysters Romano-- like oysters Rockefeller, except made with bread crumbs, bacon, lots of Romano cheese,and collards vs spinach. Fabulous! The beer list was huge, and included lots of microbrews. The mimosas looked mighty... More

It was crowded but not overly so when I had lunch there last Wednesday. The service was excellent. The menu was what I would describe as a "typical seafood restaurant" menu. The fried seafood platter was very good. I cannot give this place high marks from a value standpoint. $21.95 for the platter just seemed a couple of dollars too... More

I have visited A W Shucks 20+ times in the last 2 years. When friends/family come into town, that's where they want to eat. The food is consistently excellent, and more importantly the servers are always friendly, and do a great job. There are plenty of places to eat in and around Norfolk. If you want fantastic food and friendly... More

omg some of the best seafood I've had. the amount of beer selection was outstanding so if you into new beers this is the place to be, even if you don't like beer there list of hard liquor was impressive. My brother and I split a shrimp sandwich and the stuffed jalopenos (stuffed with crab, cheese and shrimp). Amazing food!!

The server was great but the food was terrible. Fish and shrimp were fried too long and were very greasy. The shrimp were big but tough. The fish had grease standing on top of it. The hush puppies were almost raw in the middle.

A W Shucks is a casual seafood restaurant in downtown Norfolk. We've been there several times and have always enjoyed our visit. Most recently, on Nov 1st, we arrived about 6:30pm knowing we'd have to wait for a table. On a weekend, the staff said it would about 50 minutes but we were seated in about 30. We could have...

After The Book of Mormon show, we went for a late lunch/early dinner. The place was busy but tables were available. I had the crabcake sandwich. It was delicious! So much crab and it was thick not a small thin cake. Get it broiled, not fried. I could taste the crab and the remoulade sauce was delicious and spicy. I... More
