Hidden away down in a little valley off Cortez Rd. at the intersection of the Bridge, this casual bar and grille is a great hangout for boaters and "those in the know" who really do know how good the seafood specialties are at this place. . . creative and simple menu . . . reasonable prices, good bartenders, nice view,...

We had great service, sea food and drinks on a sunny day. The fish and chips are really good a couple of us had it and really liked it. The clam chowder was also excellent. Family freindly, everyone left happy.

A little slice of old Florida. Eclectic décor, but truly great seafood, including one of the best blackened grouper filets I have ever had. Friendly staff and superb mixed drinks, just over the bridge from Anna Maria island, and well worth the slight detour.

We were tired of the pricey island restaurants and bars. Went to the Sarasota Kennel Club and placed bets on the Kentucky Derby. Then retreated to O'Shucks to watch the race. VERY friendly and warm. Best local experience on the trip. Moderately priced food and drink. Wish we'd found this place sooner.

Off the beaten path from Bradenton Beach but glad there is a path that goes here. Fantastic little dive of a restaurant that serves what may be the best blackened grouper sandwich I have ever eaten. For an appetizer decided to try the grouper cheeks, yes, grouper cheeks. They were fantastic. Glad the waitress recommended them. The grouper cheeks chowder... More

I visited O Shucks for the first time, at lunch, last week. A friend had raved about it, so I checked it out. In a word - terrific. Here's the summary: Pros - Great raw bar. It matches others I've visited in big cities. Small but diverse menu. They smoke their own meats and serve seafood caught around the corner... More

After reading some other reviews, I decided to give this place a try. Old well worn (but clean)Beach Bar sort of Five. The type of place Guy Fieri would seek out. Numerous local craft beers on tap along with traditional selections. Although this is not a beer review, I will mention as a word of caution about "J'Dub's Chocolate Porter."... More

Most every thing is fried, which is OK if that's what you like, very "down home" locals place and I guess they want to keep it that way. I preferred the place when it was Pelican Pete's!

The food was delicious. So glad we came here! The crab cakes were great and so was the whole fried fish!

We loved it so much we dined there twice. Lunch was grouper cheeks with fried mac 'n cheese. Dinner was smoked mullet. All delish! Enjoyed the food and the efficient, friendly wait staff, too. Will definitely make it a regular stop when we visit.
