This restaurant is right around the corner from where I live. I've passed it many times and wondered how it was. Now I know. It is wonderful. I had clam chowder and a soft shell crab sandwich. Everything is homemade. I am not much of a dessert person. On impulse, I ordered the red velvet cake. It was fabulous.....absolutely fabulous.... More

Shucker's was a good place to go for a reasonably priced and good seafood meal, but a recent visit demonstrated that that is no longer true. The sautéed softshell crab was overly salted and mushy--obviously frozen and not fresh. The grilled vegetables on a skewer consisted of quartered eggplant, 1/2" section of corn on the cob, cherry tomatoes, and thin... More

I have been disappointed on my last few visits. The food just wasn't as good as it usual is. Shucker's has been a Dover staple for many years and I have been coming here since I was a kid. I'm hoping that this decline in the food quality is not going to continue to be a trend.

The place, the food and the survice were outstanding! Very spacious which makes going with kids very comfortable. The decoration is sooo pretty and unique.

Friendly staff, food was just ok. The hand breaded jumbo shrimp was flattened with Panko bread crumbs. 2 dinners for 20$. Came with fries. Nothing special. What I liked the most was they had Touchtunes jukebox, so I played music from my seat.

Went on my birthday. Got the 35$ seafood platter and it was amazing and I got a lot for the price. Just wish I didn't have to pay $7 for a piece of cake so they could sing me happy birthday!

This is a decent place to eat dinner. I was a little disappointed when I tried to order the filet and lobster and they had no filet left. I ordered the strip steak instead but probably shouldn't have. The lobster tail was perfect though. The waitress, Francesca was very attentive and friendly.

Very good seafood at very reasonable prices. The options for "mini" meals were very appealing to our group as we prefer small portions. The crab soup(s) were excellent, as was my crab salad. Others were quite pleased with shrimp, cod, and scallops. Good bar for cocktails with a new feature on the weekend.
