I think they have the best seafood platter I have ever eaten.. I advise you to bring your taste buds to savor the flavor of the true south. Great place for locals as well as visitors..Dont just pass by stop and enjoy a treat you wont forget...

I guess Cajun people will eat anything, had no taste, had the sample plate, 18$ for something that had no taste just fried plain all tasted the same, and the owner is overly friendly, gumbo was water, the only thing that was good from that costly meal was the bread pudding. Over all, tried it, didn't care for it,, will go some were cheaper

Shucks was recommended by the gentleman running the Museum/Information centre (a mine of information about Abbeyville and the South generally).
Very friendly staff and great food, the mixed oyster platter was particularly good and we the shared the seafood platter. This was more than enough for 2 people and well cooked and prepared, unfortunately after our meal we did not have enough room for dessert.

Don't know what I can add to the great reviews here other than to say that our experience at Shucks was excellent.

We were on an extended road trip and happened on Shucks by chance. David, one of the owners greeted us at the door, and even though the place was nearly full he was very welcoming and made us feel like we were the only people there. Being unfamiliar with Cajun food he took time to explain the menu and said that if he could order for us we wouldn't be dissapointed. He did, and we weren't. We received a sampling of gumbo, oysters, etouffee, and alligator that set a standard that is going to be very tough to beat.

And then there is the bread pudding. Put whatever you think of the humble bread pudding on the back burner and try theirs. You'll be telling grandma to get Shuck's recipe because you won't be eating hers any more.

Shucks was our point of entry to Cajun food, and because of that, we went for Cajun food whenever we could during our stay in Louisiana. Even though we ate in some pretty pricey places in New Orleans and surrounding areas, we never found a restaurant that served better Cajun food, in our opinion.

We found the owners, staff and service to be first class, the food to be delicious and memorable.
