Great seafood! Reasonably priced for what we had -- shrimp & soft-shell crab -- yum! Server was delightful. Dining area looks worn down and a little dirty :( if you're fussy. Otherwise, no complaints, would eat again.

Horrid, I feel like a sucker after eating Shuckers. Fish was NOT fresh as promised by server. Awful room with an old rug on the floor. Tip to fish restaurant owners BUY FRESH fish every day, and NO RUGS. Watch the food network for god sakes. Shuckers is a joke, bad food, clueless staff, lousy chef. I just had a lame piece of farm raised salmon..they should have "sucker" on the menu.

My companion and I had lunch today at Shucker's. I had the fried fish dinner and she had the fried fish sandwich. The only difference is that you get two pieces of fish with the dinner. Each came with one side (The dinner should have come with two sides) and I had the side salad as well.

Needles to say, we both really enjoy the fried fish. It is a nice piece of fish, well prepared. The sides are always well prepared and taste great. Oh, try the grilled vegetables as your side, Outstanding!!! Service was excellent. The only other downside other then the absence of two sides, was the presentation. The plating could have been made a litter more eye appealing. But the food is so good, we will forgive the chef this time.

At bottom, if your in town next week for the NASCAR race in Dover, Shucker's is a must stop for your dining pleasure.

My mom and I decided to try this place out for a quick lunch after Christmas shopping. Would have missed out if I had read some of the other reviews first, but we were very happy with our experience there. There's quite a selection for lunch, and the portions were very generous, considering the prices are so cheap. I had the pan-fried cod, and my mom got the grilled chicken caesar. Both were beautifully presented and you could tell that it was fresh. Our waitress was very professional and sweet, tended to all of our needs, and one of the other servers grabbed my empty plate as soon as I finished eating. Didn't have time or room for dessert, but they taunted me as I walked by the case...will have to try one next time. The interior needs a little updating, but everything was clean and neat, and the decorations were festive. I will definitely go there again, and bring the rest of the family for dinner.
