This restaurant is nothing to write home about. I think most of the seafood was frozen at one point. The fried flounder is okay, but it's pretty hard to mess up fried fish.

The food is good. Prices are OK; but the restaurant is overall depressing. Old plastic flowers hanging, poor lights. Everything speaks of better times far far ago.

The food was very good, but the service was slow. It was not busy and we enjoyed the quiet. The staff was friendly.

Truthfully I’m not a seafood eater so I got a bacon cheeseburger here; I regret nothing! All in all this was a positive dining experience. The waitresses/waiters were very nice and worked very well as a team to support our large party of nine. While many other places were packed on a Friday night, we were able to walk right... More

As someone who does not live near a coast, I always like to take advantage of the seafood in Delaware. I got a fried platter. It was just really heavily battered and fried which covered up the seafood flavor. I was disappointed. They were out of two of the beers I asked for (local beers). The service was good though....

Looking for a Seafood restaurant close to Dover Downs, this was just down the street and had a nice local atmosphere.

We were driving up Rte 13 in Dover and noticed the sign for Shuckers and thought it might be an interesting place to visit. This place was opened in the 1970's and still has the same decor to this day. The look may be outdated but it is quaint and we felt very much at home there. We were greeted... More

We hadn't been here for quite a while. It just wasn't where we went. The interior has been updated somewhat. The service was great and the food good. There was plenty of food. My son and I both had the pan fried cod which our server had brought out for us to try. Prices were reasonable. We will definitely be... More

This restaurant is right around the corner from where I live. I've passed it many times and wondered how it was. Now I know. It is wonderful. I had clam chowder and a soft shell crab sandwich. Everything is homemade. I am not much of a dessert person. On impulse, I ordered the red velvet cake. It was fabulous.....absolutely fabulous.... More

Shucker's was a good place to go for a reasonably priced and good seafood meal, but a recent visit demonstrated that that is no longer true. The sautéed softshell crab was overly salted and mushy--obviously frozen and not fresh. The grilled vegetables on a skewer consisted of quartered eggplant, 1/2" section of corn on the cob, cherry tomatoes, and thin... More
