We have been to this restaurant many times. We've eaten at the bar. The food is excellent. We've had tuna sandwich, tuna melts, seafood sandwich and fish and chips and calamari. Wonderful and friendly bartenders who make delicious drinks. Many come for the oysters. Great...More

We had trouble walking into a place without a reservation on a Saturday night - so we ended up here. The food is OK if you like fried. Otherwise the menu is limited. The drinks were good and the Bloody Mary's looked fabulous (although we...More

I love this place, we stop in as much as we can, we love the shuckafeller oysters, the cold sampler plate is awesome, the clam chowder with their french bread is great too. In fact, we are planning on going this weekend again.

My Fiance and I enjoyed the Cold seafood platter. The oysters were especially delicious- but everything on the seafood platter was fresh and tasty. Service was quick and friendly. We sat at the bar.

Extra star for server and Bloody Mary (excellent). This is better as a bar rather than a restaurant. The food was awful, actually. It's in a prime location though.

Super friendly place! Small, open kitchen: if you're lucky enough you'll get seated by the bar and get to watch the chefs to their magic. Great food for dinner.

Read reviews before trip and it sounded like this place was good. Seafood from Maine 100% better than this place. The calamari was chewy, I was expecting it to melt in my mouth if cooked correctly. Got a crab cake with Caesar salad which was...More

My daughter, granddaughter and I left very early in the morning, June 15th, to enjoy a wonderful day at the beach and exploring Carmel and Monterey. After doing a little walking, we came upon A W Shucks Oyster Bar and decided to treat ourselves to...More
