“The sassy shrimp will leave you speechless!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2009

This is the best Oyster house west of New Orleans. We drive 60 miles one way when we get the hankering for Raw Oysters. We usually start with the gator bites.....Oysters on the half shel follow......and then the crowning jewel is the sassy shrimp.
Always friendly and prompt service. The owners are always their on hand walking around and talking to the customers. They are both great guys who are eager to meet and greet. They almost know us by name and are always appreciative that we have traveled back to eat at their resturant.
They also serve shrimp, crabs, steak, and just about anything you can imagine. They also make a great bloody mary!!!!
Do yourself a favor and eat at Shuck's You won't be sorry

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2009

On our way crossing the US in summer 2009 we stopped by this place. It was on our way and had really good feedback online.
We've travelled the US several times (this time for 5 weeks) and we have to say: This place is one of the BEST we've ever eaten in!

It was a saturday, just before lunchtime. The place was already pretty full. Seemed to be all locals. Everybody was nice and friendly...so was the service.
It's pretty much a seafood place, but you can get other options too. We did have Fried Alligator Bites, a creamy Oyster Chowder, Sassy Shrimp w/ Sugarcane Sauce and a green salad.
The Alligator Bites were nice, tender and juicy and seemed to be very fresh. Compared to some I had before in Florida these were many classes better! Really good...and a nice dipping sauce with.
The chowder was creamy....fresh...and also pretty filling. The salad was fresh and crunchy.
Then the Sassy Shrimp! Firstly nice, tender and fresh. But then this Sugarcane sauce with pepper...wow! What a great sauce...never had anything like it!

This place is just awesome. If you are around or close enough to make a detour, you gotta come eat here and support this old family business. You won't regret it!

“Local seafood place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2008

This is a local seafood/Cajun restaurant that was good. I had white gulf shrimp that were huge and meaty. I don't eat oysters, but noticed that a large number of folks seemed to be ordering them. Service was friendly and prompt. Great place to get a taste of south Louisiana fare, reasonably priced.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2006

We go there for the oysters. They are shucked as you wait. Their fried oysters are the best. My husband and I order a dozen raw and each order 1/2 order fried oysters and we cannot eat them all. They also have a large menu of other seafoods but we always eat the oysters. Great place as it is always packed but it doesn't take long to get a table.
