“great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Great service and very good sea food. The Jambalya was to die for. Waitress recommended classic dishes that were very tasty.

“Ho-hum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We ate at AW Shucks after the Cooper River Bridge Run. We ate in the little courtyard that extends from the wooden deck area. The server was attentive. She was pleasant. I really can't the service was bad. The food was fine. We knew we were eating downtown so the prices would be a little more. We wanted to eat outside because the weather was so nice so that is why we sat in the courtyard. Maybe it was where we sat.

“Good food, subpar service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The oyster appetizer was awesome. The stuffed shrimp and shrimp tacos were tasty. We did have to wait nearly 15 minutes before a waiter came to our table at a slow time of the day. With better service this place could be so much more!

“Not worth the time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We ended up here for a quick lunch and it was not good. Attractive enough outdoor seating, suggesting tropical beachy atmosphere, but the first bad sign was the apparent dirty lines for draft beer. The menu was fine showcasing local seafood but the food was tasteless. There are so many other better options in Charleston, even in that touristy area.
