Went here with a group of friends. The steamed shrimp is amazing- big prawns finished with old bay and onions. Their salads are amazing too. The portion sizes are very generous and great, though the mussels were a bit disappointing. Would highly recommend this place to any seafood lover. Would come back again. Service was excellent too.

Nice raw bar with decent selection of alcohol. Came here for oysters and was not disappointed. Also been to their AYCE crablegs and it was delicious. Menu is ok nad you're probably going to find something for everyone. Service has always been great, wait time not too bad and we've been here during peak hours. A bit pricey but overall... More

We like to go there with friends and family as a group at a big table. The service can vary, depending on the crowd, but it is always worth the wait. The wine selection is variable also, but a splendid time is guaranteed for all. The outside enclosed porch is fun in warmer weather with big round tables for 6... More

While visiting the area, we were were looking for a nice place for lunch on a Sunday. The reviews for A.W. Shuck's were good so we decided to give it a try. Using GOOGLE to find it, we were somewhat concerned by the way the place looked from the outside. We drove around looking for the door and found the... More

Unfortunately the last two times I ate there the food was not up to par. Although some of the side dishes were good (the hush puppies, Mac and cheese and side salad) the spinach was so bland I had to return it. The tuna was overcooked and dry, so I asked for it to be prepared properly. What I got... More
