“Relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

We called in here on impulse whilst in Carmel and had a nice meal the staff were friendly and the food was good. Beware the portions are huge and one main meal would have been enough for us both. Try the Carmel Wheat Beer, it is excellent and surprisingly strong.

“Great Atmosphere and Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Food was good, had the crab cake and caesar salad as well as oysters on the half-shell. Service was decent, it's a nice cozy restaurant and a great place to grab lunch.

“A Charming Little Restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

On our drive down the coast, we stopped at Carmel for lunch and decided on A W Shucks. The restaurant is small but very charming; the bar is impressive!! The fish & chips & the chowder were delicious and served in abundance. A nice little spot to lunch!
