Went here with brother and dad last night. My first time and I really enjoyed it. Judging by the size of the crowd, so did a lot of other people. I had the char-broiled oysters (traditional and roughneck(?)), and the crab cake. Both very good but the crab cake is definitely recommended. Very high quantity and quality crab content. To... More

This is the place to go for oysters. Had them raw, char broiled and fried. Would have ate more but couldn't!! Did manage a few bites of the delicious bread pudding.

From the time we walked in everything was good. The girl at the front desk was very friendly and so was are server. The oysters Rockefeller looked great and my husband loved it. I had a shrimp po boy that was very good. The husband also liked his seafood gumbo. Would definitely go back again.

If you want to try great fresh and local seafood, then this is the place. Great atmosphere for all. Favorite place for locals. Fresh raw oysters and outstanding fried seafood. You cannot go wrong and try the seafood platter.

Tasty & fresh. They do oysters best & the service is fantastic for this area. Wish they had not changed the oyster stew recipe though... and that they had better wine selections that suited the gulf oysters they built their business around. Better yet, they should allow customers, (like me, who know wine & how a delicious, French Muscadet takes... More

Great food, great service, this is a must if you are in the area. Even if you are not in the area make the drive. We had the blackened drum and the seafood platter awesome. The raw oysters were fabulous.

We went to try out Shucks since we had heard so much about this place. We were not disappointed. My husband ordered stuffed crab and I tried the beef tips over grilled vegetables. Both were delicious. The gumbo we tried as an appetizer was also great. We finished our meal off with bread pudding. No complaints here.

We stopped for lunch at Shucks and we were delighted. The "sampler" is fit for two and everything on the platter was fixed just right. The wait staff we're pleasant and efficient. The restaurant is very clean as well as the restrooms. We will be back!

Thank lspar
