Food was great but what really stood out to me was Mr David Bertrand, one of the owners coming to our table asking if we were enjoying our meal and thanking us for coming and inviting us back. That's something rare these days. We definitely will visit again.

I have found the food to be so so..although it is very popular. They have recently started serving shrimp and grits which is a hit

I found Shucks average at best. Thought the food was fairly average, service was average, prices about average, but did not like the "warehouse" atmosphere of the place. Full open seating and a bit noisy. Not a place for an intimate dinner with refined food. Let's just call it "Okay" and not much more.

What a great local restaurant to eat at.... The own walked around and gave dinner suggestions and helped with a friendly smile. My husband said some of the best catfish he ever ate. My shrimp was amazing and the salads and blue cheese dressing oh so yummy. Great portion sizes. We will be back

Had the shrimp and oyster poyboy and a cup of the corn and crab bisque. Both items were good. We started with a dozen raw oysters which were perfectly shucked and just the right size. We went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was crowded. We had several waitresses and each one was friendly, talkative, and attentive. I thought... More

Had the half order of grilled catfish with sweet potato fries and it was really good. The whole order is basically two whole fish...that's a lot of food. Very tasty and cooked just right. Had to knock it a star due to inattentive service near the end of our meal, but otherwise the service was nice and friendly.
