I love Shuckin Shack! This is the best place to go in Carolina Beach. We go there everytime we are there. Fresh oysters, steamed bucket, peel'n eat shrimp and great crab legs. First come first serve, the place is usually packed but the service works, they are fast and very attentive. Unbeatable in the area! Don't miss it.
Lunch or dinner it is the best choice in Carolina Beach.

We had spent a week in Topsail Island NC, and decided to make a day trip to Carolina Beach, and see the Aquarium. It was nice, but we were starved. We stopped at a Tiki bar which was okay ... but a few of our 8 people group love raw oysters... and surprisingly noone had any. The bartender had suggested this place and we drove past it twice bc it is very small, but right on the strip. So glad we did because thats all anyone has been talking about since.... What a blast... the bartender was so nice and we had such a great great time! The vodka oyster shooters! THE BOMB!!! I am definitley going to immitate those. Everything was delicious .... fresh and great prices... We will be back... we might even stay down that way so were closer!

Thanks so much for a great lunch!

First off this place is small very small you have to make sure your looking pretty hard to find it. Sure its on the main strip but tucked between two other places. The fried mushrooms were good just your average fried mushrooms but the breaded wings soo freaking good. They are the fill thigh and drumb all together and get a little messy but totally worth it. We also ordered the lobster roll its a cold roll and wasn't impressed by it but it was fresh the coleslaw was pretty good too. The beer was ice cold and my mixed pineapple drink was good even though they used canned pineapple juice wish it had been fresh but still mixed well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the visit.

The food is the freshest you'll find! It is definitely the locals favorite place to go which is a great testimonial but the downside is it is always busy. So get there before you are absolutely starved because you will have to wait for a seat. The good news is it's worth it!

My wife and I had the lobster roll and we both agreed it was excellent. This is not a restaurant. It is a bar that serves excellent seafood. There's only 3 or 4 tables that can seat 3 people each. The rest of the seats are bar stools. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for good seafood.
