Best Happy Hour. You go for the oysters. Try the specials they are amazing. Codwich is a great value. Great cocktail, beer and wine selections. Always top notch servers. Highly Recommend!

Great seafood and beverages. Friendly and nice staff. I usually get one of their dinner specials. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu unless you don;t like seafood.

Shucks is one of our favorite places in town. We've never been disappointed in anything we ordered. If you want amazing Louisiana style food, this is an absolute must-do. The food is always delicious and great value.

Wow, Paul, Thanks for the fantastic in-depth review!. We are glad you enjoyed so much of your experience with us. We do periodically get Gulf Coast Oysters, but here in the Midwest, the East Coast Oysters are the preferred lot. Glad we will be seeing...More

It's very hard to find authentic clam chowder outside of New England, but it's here. Delicious! The oysters were also very fresh and tasted fantastic. Sometimes, I have qualms about trying oysters if I'm not by the water, but these were absolutely delicious. The Blue...More
