Visited Shucks for some outstanding seafood. Although there was a little wait to be seated, it was well worth it. The service was great and the food outstanding. Want good seafood, this is definitely a place to visit.

The food is always first-rate. It can be ordered cooked to specification. Any specification is accommodated. In all the years we have gone there, every waitress has been attentive and very friendly.

We stopped here while road tripping based on the reviews! It was terrific! Our waitress Maurasey(sp) was awesome ! We had redfish on the half shell, raw oysters, crab Augratin and finished with delicious bread pudding. Everything was excellent. We almost just stayed here!

This was our first time here. We stopped due to the reviews posted. It was an okay choice. The food was good but didn't seem seasoned enough - especially for a south Louisiana restaurant. I can't say anything bad about the food but it wasn't...More
