My family of 5 arrived to Shucks and my husband didn't think at first this was the place to bring our 3 children. I said it will be fine.....and it was!!! Yes, from the outside it looks like a bar that only adults should go, but they have seating for families inside and patio seating to choose from. We chose to sit inside and our girls had a fabulous time!! They were able to color and watch the shark show that was being played in the bar. I felt like I was one of the locals!!! Our server was awesome!!! We enjoyed their fresh oysters that were just shucked at the bar, clam strips, shrimp, and crab legs!! We enjoyed it all especially the Key Lime Pie for dessert! The place is a local "catch" and we will come back again when we are in Omaha!!!

Not bothered by the atmosphere, since we like the unique places. Service was great, but I'm not personally into cajun, so though the rice tasted good to my husband, I should have chosen differently. Trout almondine tasted great and my husbands blackened ahi tuna steak sandwich was pink on the inside, the way he liked it. Fresh seafood market attached if you want to bring home something fresh for your grill. Even promoted their shark for Shark Week!

Between this location and their location in Downtown Omaha, we enjoyed four visits. During those times we enjoyed seven dozen oysters, three soups, two salads and a few appetizers.

The oyster change daily and the variety was great. From PEI, Conneticut, Maine, Deleware and New Jersey, great, plump, fresh oysters. Blue Points are regularly on special. Their homemade seafood sauce is killer.

We enjoyed Clam Chowder, Louisiana Crawfish Chili and Lobster Bisque. All tasty soups. Well worth enjoying.

Ahi Tuna Salad is the bomb. The tuna may have been on the grilll for a total of 30 seconds. So beautiful, tender and fresh. Crab cake salad featured a hand made crab cake with not alot of filler, lots of crab and great flavour.

Catfish fingers, halibut and clam strips are so thinly breaded highlighting the fresh flavours of the seafood.

Whenever you have a craving for seafood,. you have to go to Shucks. Also they sell fresh fish and seafood.

Two families, grandparents, and four young children descended on Schucks for lunch. The waitress was incredibly friendly and attentive despite the mountain of mess the kids created.

A dozen Bluepoint Oysters were served and were fresh tasting and well-presented. The balance of the fare was fish tacos and shrimp tacos, which were unimaginatively created. Small pieces of fish were deep-fried and placed on top of well-flavored greens and cubed tomatoes in a tortilla. Similar presentation for the shrimp version. Too much oil for my taste with the small pieces deep fried, but on balance were reasonably tasty.

Generous portion of french fries that were seasoned. They lacked the deep-fried grease, but were quite salty and possibly contained MSG.

Clam Chowda was heavy on cream and actually sweet tasting.
