Small place so seating is limited but worth the wait. I of course went for the oysters but this visit the shrimp was the sweat tasting winner! The girls working are great!

This place is fantastic! I am from Boston, and am picky about seafood. But this place is the real deal. The food was fresh, well cooked and fairly priced. MOREOVER, on there two TV's they were playing a Red Sox game and a pre-season Patriots game. Between and above the TV's were Sox posters! I was in heaven!

A most popular place in Carolina Beach...now being franchised throughout the State and other places. FRESH seafood...and best is when various items are "in season." For example, oysters tend to be smaller in summer, as are clams, etc. Very good shrimp and lobster rolls. Some beer specials. Small restaurant/bar...perhaps 50 person max?

If you like oysters, shrimp, clams or mussels, this is the place. The food was real good. They cook every thing in Old Bay spice. The atmosphere is a bit beach bar type but they still accommodated our 18 mo old grandson. If you aren't a "Shuckin" type seafood eater though, this probably isn't for you. Chicken tenders were the... More

This is your classic beach dive serving up huge portions of fresh seafood. Very good value and amazing prices and food quality. The Shuckin Shack offers a family friendly environment. I personally recommend the calamari and the oysters.

Fun atmosphere- very beachy and casual. Indoor and outdoor dining as well as many seats at bar. Food was good. It was nice to go to a seafood place that isn't all fried items. I had oyster special and it was pick 3 types. Good variety. Hush puppies- yes I know fried- were good too. Lots of menu options. The... More

Unfortunately there was not a table for my family of 6 so we settled to sit at two tables of 3. Disgustingly hot inside with a cheap box fan on the floor that did nothing to cool the place down. Ordered drinks (waters, 2 Shirley temples for the kids, and 2 liquor drinks), but not even 3 minutes later we... More
