Great oysters,peel and eat shrimp and crab legs. Each day they have a different special for food and drinks. This place is very affordable and the seafood is fresh. They have draft beer and sports on all the TVs. Don't mistake this as a family sit down restaurant as this is more a bar-like scene. We take our kids here as they have few tables not at the bar and our kids love the food but seating is very limited in this place. Groups greater then 4-6 will likely not be able to sit together. They treat our kids nicely but our kids like the food options so not sure what this is great for the choosy child. We been going here since it first opened and the food is consistentently great and and a great option compared to the other fried seafood options around town.

Lot of locals hang out here, so expect a local bar feel. If this had a movie rating, I would give it a PG-13 for smoking out front and language inside.

The Shuckin Shack looks nothing special from the outside, but it has the best steamed seafood, nice waitstaff and cheap drinks. The only downside....the size. It is very small and cannot accommodate a party larger than 4 people.

Years ago we would have love this place. BUT now between the smoke streaming in from outside, scary customers, the smell of beer all over no bucket of seafood will get us back. We did leave after our order so the food was never tasted.

This little bar is always hopping. The locals visit and the shrimp is excellent. They also feature Oysters, but they were not the best we have had. The wings were also a good choice. We would go back in a heartbeat!

As others have said, this is a hole in the wall but one definitely worth visiting. Go when you're not in a hurry and enjoy some of the best seafood and wings around. Worth the drive from Wilmington.
