High recommend the shrimp in Old Bay. Shrimp is large and perfectly steamed. The service was great too - very efficient but didn't make us feel rushed.

Today shrimp just happened to be 25% off and they were very very easy to peel and very delicious. I had them with Old Bay and cocktail sauce. The bartender was very friendly and kept checking on me. I will be back very soon to have some more shrimp, and try some oysters and other items on the menu :-)

I stopped in on Saturday night thinking I would sit at the bar and eat. The restaurant was crowded so I decided to order take out. when I got to my room I was impressed with the amount of food and how good it all tasted.

The Shuckin Shack is right at the boardwalk and it's always a good choice for dinner and drinks. Had the crab legs, oysters and peel and eat shrimp and was as good as always. Small, quaint and enjoyable. Can't go wrong here.

Had the low country boil and a beer. Corn was soggy but the rest of it was very tasty and properly cooked. Beer is the "coldest in town" per a fellow customer.

If you like fresh steamed and raw seafood, this is the place. Near the Boardwalk, it's more like a local bar hangout than a touristy place. Nice beer and drink selection. Great on-the-half-shell raw offering.

Small--basically a bar and a row of tables Excellent beer selection and very friendly staff. Raw oysters and peel-n-eat shrimp were very good. Prices reasonable (but not dirt cheap). Hushpuppies were delish.

I was staying overnight at carolina beach and the shuckin shack was recommended to me by my inn-keeper for really good seafood. She was right. It's definitely not fancy which is what I like and even better the food and prices were great. I got the low country boil and a beer for less than $20 and had leftovers to... More
