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.

We visit Shucks on every trip we take to Abbeville, LA. Great Cajun food and great service. There are other items on the menu that are not Cajun, but I highly recommend the crawfish etouffee. Ask them to put the rice on the side, then...More
