Tucked away from the main stroll on the Gold Coast this restaurant is a real find. Excellent service and fantastic seafood and deserts were a highlight. The Crab linguini was a stand out and the chocolate desert that came with the businessmans lunch was a delight. Fine glassware and cloth napkins complemented the casual yet sophisticated ambience. Would go back... More

Went to Shuck for a friends birthday. Nice setting for outdoor dining. Staff were friendly. Great food and wine! Pricing reasonable.

High quality food and service. However, their prices are "right up there" and we thought overpriced despite our comment about food and service. I

What a great find- awesome street full of character. Shuck was amazing, I had the garlic prawns with a side of chips.. My husband had the chowder. Both lovely meals with a great wine selection and service! Will definitely be back when we are next die in the GC!

Firstly, all other restaurants should take lessons as to how you train your staff. Really ..... pay attention! This restaurant has nailed good service and great food. It's not that hard but so many places miss the mark. But about the food. The house specialty of Crab Lasagne always hits the mark .... it is rich and the flavour is... More

We visited on our last night on the GC. Two adults and two kids. Best kids menu options we have seen and our son chose the eye fillet and salad and chips option. He loved it! Mains were lovely and the desserts creative and yummy. Service was attentive and friendly.

There was a 4 of us and our little staffy Magic. We were able to have our dog with us and our table was perfect. He could sit near us and we all enjoyed our night out. The crab lasagne was delicious and we all tried a different dessert. They were all amazing. We will go there again.

One of the worst dinning experiences I've had for a while! My friend and I ordered a prawn entrée to share, being on the Gold Coast we expected lovely, juicy, fresh prawns but no we got 6 frozen prawns from the supermarket! The fish main was beautiful and fresh but the accompanying veg dish was cold and tasteless!
