Great place for a laid back dinner

My husband and I have eaten here several times. The food is really good, prices are reasonable and the staff super friendly. This is a perfect place for a relaxing, laid back night out.

I had been here 3 years ago. It was so good that I came back, with my family! They loved it too! Fish & chips - best ever. 12 oysters (raw) - 8 out of 12 were great, the other 4 a bit salty (but that is an oyster problem, not restaurant problem!); fish sandwich: great! My 12 year old... More

We had to go through a rough neighborhood to get to the restaurant but it was worth it. The seafood was excellent and the price was reasonable. The beer was very expensive, however, so plan accordingly.

Great food, appetizers and service for a reasonable price! The menu is varied, offering chicken and burgers for those who don't love seafood. But for those who do, the seafood platter provides a great variety, lots to eat,and is under $25. Waitstaff was friendly, and very forgiving of our 16-month-old grandson's mess! Definitely family friendly.

My husband and I shared a side Ceasar salad and Oyster Po'boy and we had more than plenty to eat and the food was delicious. The one drawback I had was the entrance porch, also a dining area, had a slightly unpleasant smell. Almost turned us around - glad we didn't.

I keep going back to AW Shucks because the food is great and the value is great. There is something for most everyone. Last week I went to the Capital Grille in Washington DC and dropped $350 on dinner for myself and my son, and it was a great experience. And then I came back to AW Shucks in Norfolk... More

Delicious...I've been several times and had several dishes, but my favorite is the oyster stew. Done just right. They also have a great selection of wine and unfiltered saki...which is a personal favorite and unusual to find in restaurants around here. Highly recommend.

Crab cakes Are better than Kelly's! All the food is great! Service was great even on a Friday night when they were busy.
