Went to Shucks for a celebration dinner. Heard it was a good seafood restaurant and wasn’t disappointed. It is not fancy but the service was very good. We had a party of seven and all enjoyed our meal.

Big variety of fish, seafood, and other in a friendly no-frills setting adjoining retail fish market. 99 cent oysters everyday (maybe only happy hour?). Shrimp po’ boy best outside New Orleans.
