I took my husband here (119th Pacific location) for his Birthday. We had heard all good things but we were very disappointed. Won't be going back :(

What a treat to find such good seafood in the middle of The Midwest. Although it is a local chain, it is still a "dive" in all the best sense of the word. It is clean, excellent tasting, and a wonderful stop every time we come to Omaha. I got the sampler platter of oysters this time. My favorite is... More

What a great little hole in the wall. The seafood was super fresh and delicious! I had the cajun catfish fingers, grilled oysters, and jambalaya. All of it was amazing! The catfish was better than any I've ever had, the oysters were succulent perfection and the jambalaya had just the right amount of heat and a ton of shrimp! Just... More

Found shucks accidentally while in Omaha. Dinner for 2 with a dozen oysters and a drink a piece for $60 is hard to find, but Shucks can do it! Excellent Red beans and rice. Unique find in the Midwest. If you ask for blackened, you get it, and that was much appreciated. Will be back.

Shucks.. Great food.. Great service.. Great place.. why go somewhere else? No matter what time of day, the food is always fresh, and the service is excellent; all servers are very friendly and helpful! What I love about Shucks, is that they recognize me, call me by my first name, and know what I'm going to order!! :)

A great pre-Father's Day late lunch that really was great. Service was quick even with a pretty full house. All appetizers and entrees prepared exactly as ordered. OK, if you know us we're chowder snobs, so we'd pick the lobster bisque over the chowder. Everyone got to slurp a couple of oysters from the roundabout sampler. Lobster roll was a... More

I have spent much of my life on the East Coast. I come from a family of fishermen and sea food eaters. Shucks reminds me of a Chesapeake Bay crab house, but its in Omaha. I believe they were trying to create a gulf coast atmosphere. The food in the restaurant is very good. Today we decided to try the... More

My husband and I recently took our 2-year-old daughter here for dinner and although we wanted to like it, left less than satisfied. The hostess that seated us seemed annoyed with every customer in the place, didn't bring us a booster seat or highchair, (nor did she offer to), and no crayons. Seeing as the hostess is the first face... More
