“Try the 1911 Leavenworth Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This review is of the downtown location at 1911 Leavenworth (402) 614-5514. I haven't been to the South 119th street location., but this is the same owner. They have a great happy hour 4PM-6PM ~ 7 days a week. Excellent margaritas for $3.00! Nice selction of happy hour snacks for $5 each. The fried clams were very good as was the asian fried shrimp and a nice selection of raw bar samplings. Varied & interesting daily specials~ some with a creole bend.

Friendly & accomodating staff. They prepared grouper for us that was not on the menu.

Parking is pretty good. Go behind the building. The ealier you get there the better, We were unable to get in on a recent Sunday afternoon around 5:00. It was packed!!

They do have an outdoor patio area for smokers~ if you are so inclined.

It's a great place to kick off the weekend.

“Almost as good as the Gulf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

If Shucks was someplace where you could see th beach close by I would say that is every bit as good as many of the other places we have eaten at in Florida, Alabama or NOLA.
We split the Lobster Roll and the Shrimp Po Boy. Both were excellent, We also tried the clam chowder BUT it didn't stack up. The kitchen needs to have a lesson on how to make a good Rue. They also have a great list of GOOD beers on tap. Including Agave Wheat from Colorado.
We shall return

I love to hit this place up for Oysters when i am out and about during the day. Super fresh and they have a good deal on Blue Oysters during happy hour.

“Delicious food, one of a kind atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went for a quick late dinner on a Friday night. The dining room was full so we grabbed a table in the grocery section of the restaurant/fish market combo. We ordered a dozen of the cheapest raw oytsers (~1.20 each), a spicy salmon burger ($10 with fries and slaw), and a shrimp po boy ($11ish with hashbrowns and slaw.) Everything was absolutely delicious.

We enjoyed the quick, laid back service also. Whoever walked by the table was sure to refill our drinks or remove empty plates. The music was a fun mix and fit the atmosphere perfectly.

This place is extremely casual (wait staff wears jeans and a t shirt), you can get away with wearing whatever suits you! But I would not be uncomfortable in a cocktail dress either. My husband wore sweat pants and no one looked twice!

Tip- wish we would have known about the 7 day a week happy hour specials from 2-6. This includes raw oysters for 65 cents!
