Best seafood hands down! Service can be a tad slow only because I've never gone in there when it wasn't packed!

We really enjoyed our seafood at this well-priced restaurant. Great choice of sides and food prepared to order and delivered hot. Good prices on wine rounded out our enjoyable evening. Only thing we did not like was the loudness of some patrons and the bartender.

We went to A.W. Shucks in the basis of the reviews and the online menu. The restaurant was hard to find, since it is located to the back of the Ghent Market Shoppes off 22nd street. Most visible locator at night is the Plaza del Sol Mexican restaurant on the street corner entrance. The online menu turned out to NOT... More

I have never been disappointed when I come to this restaurant. Great seafood. Small place and most tables only seat four people. Always packed with people, so that speaks volumes on the food. Just a really good place for food and beer, wine and cocktails.

Fish, Mac and cheese, jambalaya, wow... everything is Gggreat! This local dive is a fun spot that left my friends and me satisfied. The chefs are very creative and talented. Great service, too.

When I am in this area of the east coast I always look for a place that has great crab cakes. I was not disappointed. The dinner size had two crab cakes and two sides for I think 25 buck. Well worth it. I had some of the fried shrimp another guest in our party had and it was very... More

Had good seafood and pleasant service. Thought we would have a longer wait but were seated pretty quickly in the porch area.

When I want seafood, I go to A.W.Schucks. I have never been disappointed. My fish has always been done exactly as I want it. The service is always excellent. This is a "locals" place with a "locals" atmosphere.

We both really enjoyed our selections. The ambience old fish house but the service and food are very good. The location is not... More

Food was good However service was very slow. About 20 to 25 min for appetizer to be served. Then an hour between appetizer and dinner. Also they ran out of items. I had the fried seafood platter which was supposed to have flounder . When it was served to me I asked about the fish and was told it was... More
