Its been a while since we were there, but during our visit to Norfolk a while back, Shucks had a Thursday special. All you can eat crab legs for around $16. Being a family that loves crab legs, we had to go. We were seated right away and the server quickly took our order. We ordered the all you can... More

Get past the exterior and interior decor of this otherwise being a total dive, because it belies an outstanding restaurant featuring fresh locally sourced seafood, vegetables, and large variety of craft beers. This would help explain why there's always a waiting list for dinner if you dont have a reservation. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed a dozen oysters on... More

Went for dinner. Scallops and crabcakes were very good. Service was good. We made reservations and didn't wait at all.

This restaurant was highly recommended by a "foodie" friend and he was right on the mark. It's casual but very clean and comfortable, service is always excellent, atmosphere beats any "chain" type restaurant by far. The best part, the food is fresh and well prepared, daily specials, specializing in the usual seafood dishes, but they also have FANTASTIC burgers, and... More

This was a favorite for me, but it has become poor in so many ways, it is no longer someplace I can recommend. We've gone back occasionally, hoping for a return of the days when it was great, but we are always disappointed in the past 2 years. The food is no longer what it was, and this is because... More

When we pulled up to the restaurant, we questioned the raves we had heard about it from our friends. So glad that we went in! Each of the 5 of us had a different seafood dish; each of us would swear that ours was THE best seafood we had tasted. The waitress was very helpful in making our selections. She... More

The seafood combo was excellent - everything from crab legs and mussels to potatoes and sausage. Caution: the small combo is huge. Definitely fills a person up. Complement it with a glass of white wine and you have one heck of a supper. Prices good - $19 for a small seafood combo. Beer or glass of wine will run you... More

Great variety of raw oysters. Food good but menu descriptions a little lacking on detail. My cousin had steamed shrimp and it was very saucy....not expecting that. Went for dinner. Service good. Reservations allowed for large parties......
