“Great She Crab soup”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Delicious she crab soup and a decent Bloody Mary helped cure a cold and blustery Sunday afternoon. Wish we would have been hungrier as every plate delivered around us looked great and everyone appeared satisfied.

“Nice variety and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Very nice-went new years day, so seating was not a problem. Prices were reasonable and great seafood selection. Not the great craft beer selection as advertised, but enough to keep you going. Service was very good

“Great service...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

On our recent trip to Charleston, SC, we took our family to A W Shucks for lunch. I had eaten there several times before and always enjoy the food. This visit, I gained a new appreciation for the level of service they extend. We have a disabled son in a wheelchair. He loves to travel, but sometimes he gets scared when we go into a restaurant if he doesn't see a lot of light. We entered through the side door where it was easily accessible and he didn't want to go in. I sat with him at the door while the rest of our family went to a table to give him time to adjust to the environment. The staff checked on us several times, brought us water and offered to get anything we needed. After a brief wait, we went to join our family. The staff went out of their way to make sure all our needs were taken care of. The food was excellent, the environment was clean and fun, and they just demonstrated "great service" overall. We would recommend this restaurant be added to your favorite fun place to eat when you are in Charleston.

“Seafood Casserole was excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

We were directed here by one of the locals and found the food to be excellent and the waitress was very attentive.
The price was reasonable and the location was smack dab in the middle of everything. I'd go back

“Good seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

This was our first dining place upon arrival to Charleston. The food was good and our server was very attentive. It was pouring the rain so we could not eat "al fresco". I wish I had been brave enough to have tried the raw oysters!!!
