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......

Visited this place two different times for lunch based on reviews. The first visit, I ordered blackened flounder with red potatoes. The flounder was definitely blackened to where the outer crust of the fish tasted charred with a charred crust. The interior was delicious. On my second visit, I ordered one of the specials, fried catfish with red beans and... More

We stopped in for dinner after the front desk clerk recommended it. We ordered the crab cakes (the best we ever had!!!), shrimp po'boy and a bacon cheeseburger. Then for dessert we had the Krispy Kreme bread pudding. Everything was amazing!!!! So glad we stopped here it was worth every penny!!

We almost didn't find it but boy were we glad we did. We visited 2 or 3 times in less than a week. Nothing we had was bad, with the exception of the waitress. Definitely worth the wait.

Selected this from Tripadvisor when in the area. Parking lot was a little dark but we found it. Met by friendly hostess and perfect waiter Matt. Every course was delicious. Oysters Romano similar to Oyster Rockefeller were as tasty as any we have ever eaten. The tomato and crab chowder was a savory vegetable soup with lots of flavor and... More

We stopped in for a late lunch after googling for restaurants in the area. A.W. Shucks had great reviews and with the seafood/burger focused menu it seemed like it would have something for everyone. It was tucked away in the corner of a little shopping area, and first impressions were that it had a seafood shack kind of vibe. Once... More

We met our out of town friend's for dinner prior to the Old Dominion Basketball game.The food was delicious and the staff were friendly. The only reason for the lower ranking was the food was served lukewarm. But my burger was perfect.

Definitely my go to place for causal dining on some of the best consistently prepared fish/seafood in the Ghent area. They have a selection of fresh catch choices for lunch and dinner cooked in whichever way you choose. No disappointments in past 5 years of becoming a regular. Hollie is by far the best for helping you find great choices... More
