Love Shucks at the 119th Street off Pacific location. Been going since they opened. Clam Chowda just like in New England lots of clams. All the Oysters are wonderful, I like them fried. My favorite sandwich is The Colwich . With lettuce, tomato, red onion tartar sauce, and the best fries. Another favorite Salmon BLT, seared salmon, lettace tomato, bacon... More

We go to the original location on 119th where their fish market is. Recently, I have become fond of going there and picking out a piece of fish from the market and having the chef cook it for me omakase style(in the way the chef thinks is best for the fish). They charge the price of the fish and add... More

We had a terrible experience at another Shucks in Omaha so we were scared to go back, but so glad we tried this one. Had the fried oyster and halibut combo dinner with a nice glass of pino noir. Our food was fabulous. Other tables around us had way different food, but also looked very good. If you love fried... More

Love this place. We live in Lincoln and go here just to eat oysters on the half shells, peel and eat shrimp and calamari at least once or twice a month.

We live in Colorado and frequently travel back to IL/WI for friends and family visits. We try to time each trip to stop at Shucks. Great oyster poboys, fun, casual bar scene, and a great deli shop and fish market. Not fancy - just friendly and fantastic.

What a great evening!. Arrived around 7:10pm and was told it would be about a 10 minute wait. We sat at the bar, ordered our drinks and a table was ready. We had the oysters since it was a special. Delicious. We ordered a second round. We decided to have sandwiches. The codwich and the salmon BLT. Huge sandwiches with... More

Don't let the outside of this restaurant fool you. Though a little bit dark inside and some of the Decour is a little dated, the food is so amazing. Extremely reasonably priced, the staff is fabulous, and the food is scrumptious. The lobster bisque was so good and our po boy sandwiches were so full, it was really good food.... More

This local seafood place specializes in Cajun cuisine. I highly recommend starting off with fresh oysters. Then I recommend the burbon glazed salmon. This place has a bar environment with plenty of room to watch the game. The do have a market that's sells the freshest of scallops, shrimp and other fillets of fish. Great little neighborhood spot for a... More
