We looked forward to returning to O'Shucks this year for our annual trip to Anna Maria and Cortez. We had a great meal here last year, but I'm disappointed to say this place has gone way downhill. First, although we came for dinner at a...More

We can't believe we have never eaten here after 28 years in Florida. We always end up eating at all of the other restaurants in Cortez and passing this one up. Well no more! This is a shanty and old Florida establishment. We loved the...More

Fried Hogfish was killer, so were the fresh orange margaritas. We had a great time with our family, the service was fast and friendly. Sort of a beach hole in the wall so no need to dress up! Loved it!

Great place to stop by and have great local seafood, The Hogfish is a favorite. Fried smelts are super. Really a nice place run by friendly people. Always a favorite.

The grouper cheek was the best I’ve ever had. Oysters on the half shell were really good! This is our first time here and we will definitely be back!
