Started with charbroiled oysters and they were done perfectly with a Parmesan topping that was excellent! We all had half oyster half shrimp hoagies fully dressed. The shrimp is the best ever!!! Fast efficient service. Always a pleasure to eat there.

We’ve started a tradition the last few years. My hunters and I drop in for all the oysters, shrimp and gumbo we can eat. We have a ball. Crowded but still good service. Very reasonable prices and great Cajun fare. Will be back next January.

Dropped in on a week day afternoon for oysters on the half shell they were so good ate 2 dozens. Waitress are friendly just sometimes slow getting you anything extra after your first initial order. A little on the pricey side also.

This was my second visit to Shuck's, and it was as good as the first several months earlier. We split several appetizers and each had gumbo. The catfish strips and crab claws, and fried shrimp in a cane syrup pepper glaze were both very good,...More

We got oysters which were big, fresh,cold and slightly sweet. I’m embarrassed to say we also ate gator bites; duck gumbo, crab claws and shrimp Poboy. It was all delicious then I had these oysters with cheese and crab meat on top. Cold beer. Clean...More

Place is busy at lunch but was only a few minute wait. Nothing real fancy, a large diner type restaurant with a bar. Many customers having oysters, very popular. I started with the gumbo which was wonderful, even had cooked oysters in it. Although they...More
