Had the king crab legs today, 1 pound. They were absolutely terrible. These crabs had not seen Alaska since it had became a state! The legs were old, tasteless and the meat was impossible to remove or enjoy. The Hush puppies were cold and chewy as well. In my opinion, a few years ago this restaurant had some good meals....

Great food, and excellent service! It can get a little loud, so not a place to go if you want to have a quiet, intimate conversation; but if you're looking for a fun place to have some great seafood, this is the place!

The best part of Shuckers was the service. The food was pretty average and as a result it made it seem more expensive than it should have been. Just so-so.

Took the in-laws there, food and service excellent..We all had a tough choice deciding. Asian salad with salmon, 2 shrimp and grits and fried oysters were the winners. Make sure to save room for desert.. key lime pie with 4 spoons was the perfect finish.

We have not been here for a while. It was great. Absolutely a gem. Service was spectacular. The food was so good. Hush puppies were fresh and hot. I got the shrimp n grits. Amazing and tasty. I am a big eater and could not finish it. (TIP) Be sure to call ahead. Waits can be long.

You can count on Shuckers to be packed. Wake Forest isn't huge but it has a bunch of good eateries and the fact that this is the one you can't get into tells you how good it is. Good wine and beer selections (beers mostly NC local, and very good too) and then there's the seafood. Superb seared salmon. A... More

It's rare to find a good restaurant where the food is good enough to satisfy adults and pre schoolers' palates. Shuckers has found that balance. The seafood is superb. My Crab Cakes held themselves together with sheer determination. No need for fillers. The mac and cheese was to die for. Service is good. Prices are reasonable.
