Tucked away in Abbeville, a small quaint town in Southwest Louisiana lies a gem. Shucks. The ambiance is relaxed and casual, but the food rivals the best of any restaurant. They serve a dozen of the sweetest oysters for only $13.00. There is nothing minerally about these oysters. They taste like giant Kumamotos. The restaurant is not fancy. They won't... More

I was not too impressed by the sea food... More

Recommended by the folks where we were staying - one of my friends and I shared the blue crab cakes - the sauce was tasty but the cakes were soggy or something - just did not taste like they were freshly cooked. Also, bloody mary was a disappointment - tasted like tomato juice with hot sauce added (prefer ZingZang!) We... More

If you are looking for a place favored by the locals to enjoy the great seafood available in Acadiana be sure to make the drive down to Shuck's. They offer oysters either raw or cooked multiple ways plus corn chowder or duck gumbo as appetizers plus a nice selection of fried or grilled seafood (mainly oysters, shrimp, fish) with a... More

I went to Shucks with a group of friends and we were all able to find something we loved. It is a casual atmosphere, very comfortable, with good service.

Shucks' has the best and largest oysters in Cajun land. Plus, don't miss trying the Sassy Shrimp appetizer. The place is usually quite busy, but service is always good and the food is piping hot! This place is a must visit for anyone traveling in Acadiana.

This was my first visit here but won't be my last! What a great ambiance and country feel to it. Had the oyster po Boy and a salad. Really thinking I should have had the bread pudding too. The owner came around and greeted every customer which was impressive. Definitely will come back next trip down here.
