Kind of a hole in the wall - we drove by it the first time. It’s not big but was totally worth it for the oysters and shrimp. You can get the shrimp seasoned 3 ways - all good. Service was quick even though it...More

As other reviews have noted, this place is small. Mainly a bar with a few tables along the wall to eat. I had the 1/2 pound of shrimp and small (5) wings, wife had the fish and chips basket. Shrimp were large and steamed just...More

Meal was good with fish and crab roll - not a lot of seating - so you will be seating with or very close to others - gives you a chance to chat with people you do not know.

When my husband and I arrived at the beach, we were craving some great seafood and stumbled upon Shuckin' Shack because it was on the way to our condo. We got there kind of early (4:45-5) before the dinner crowd hit and was just able...More
