“Can't believe I haven't visited before!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Celebrated our 11th anniversary at Shuck's. Just returned from vacationing at FL Gulf Coast and missing it SO much, so loved the atmosphere. Amazing seafood - had some 35 cent happy hour peel and eat shrimp. My husband had the calamari - which I normally don't enjoy - but this was really good. His jambalaya and my shrimp po' boy with coleslaw was great! Loved and can't believe we haven't visited before! Will be back soon.

“MMM MMMMM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Thursday is fish taco day!! They're the BEST I've ever had anywhere. the fish is flown in fresh daily and the cooks know how to make it yummy. I love the gumbo, jambalaya, & crab legs, which are all great but the fish tacos rule!!

“Unexpected Quality in Omaha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

In Omaha for an overnight on a road trip and found this very good place. What really made it for me is that it's attached to a fish market so I knew I could count on something good and I was not disappointed. I had the oyster sampler as well as peel and eat shrimp and a couple of martinis. The staff was very friendly as well.

“Just so so!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Oysters on half shell were very good for the price. 75 cents each during happy hour. Also order fried oyster plate. They didn't taste fresh. They honestly tasted like and looked like they come in frozen already battered and fried. Served with a hash brown type thing that wasn't very good either. Te slaw was good. We also ordered a shrimp tempura plate that wasn't very good really either it was just so so. I know we aren't on the gulf or ocean so it's hard to expect fresh seafood but when they advertise it that way you expect it. The only thing that was maybe fresh would be the oysters on the half shell cause they were pretty good. Maybe it we just a bad night I dunno. Service was pretty good. Atmosphere is more like a bar but there is a separate seating area.
