Crab Cakes!

When I am in this area of the east coast I always look for a place that has great crab cakes. I was not disappointed. The dinner size had two crab cakes and two sides for I think 25 buck. Well worth it. I had some of the fried shrimp another guest in our party had and it was very... read more

Had good seafood and pleasant service. Thought we would have a longer wait but were seated pretty quickly in the porch area.

When I want seafood, I go to A.W.Schucks. I have never been disappointed. My fish has always been done exactly as I want it. The service is always excellent. This is a "locals" place with a "locals" atmosphere.

Stopped for lunch with my wife at A. W. Shucks on Tuesday. One of the Catches of the Day was Mahi which I had blackened with fries and slaw. She had Fish (tilapia) and Chips with slaw. We both really enjoyed our selections. The ambience old fish house but the service and food are very good. The location is not... More

Food was good However service was very slow. About 20 to 25 min for appetizer to be served. Then an hour between appetizer and dinner. Also they ran out of items. I had the fried seafood platter which was supposed to have flounder . When it was served to me I asked about the fish and was told it was... More

A.W. Scheck's has a nice diverse menu to please all. The burgers are great, along with the meatloaf sancwich, the fried oysters, and the sauteed spinach. Frequent A.W. Schuck's and always have great service and great food.

Pulling up to this place I was tempted to tell my brother in law forget about it, he assured me I would like it. The inside is pretty ordinary, but the food was very good and the service was equally so. They have a great selection of beer, but this not someplace I would take someone to impress them. If...

Service was slow and restaurant was not full. Crab cakes and sauce was delicious. Fried shrimp was delicious...the fried fish however was very bland.. maybe it would have been better with some Texas Pete hot sauce(they didn't have) instead of the tobasco sauce that they have. .

Restaurant was very crowded when we arrived. When we did get seated at a table, we found the service to be slow which included having our orders taken and receiving our food and bill. Menu was extensive but food quality was just average. Food was only mildlly warm when delivered to our table.

My wife and were in Norfolk to move her mother to a retirement apartment and decided to celebrate Veterans Day with a nice dinner that we had not visited before. What great luck to have found A.W. Shucks! I can't believe we've never eaten there before. We both had flounder topped with crabmeat and it was the best main course... More
