The industrial atmosphere is modern and cold feeling. The food is anything but. Shuckers is more expensive than most of the places in Wake Forest but the food is worth it. We have never had a bad meal. Our favorites include the crab dip and crab soup. We order at least one of them every time we go.

On Tuesday, December 27th and still in the holiday spirit, we decided to revisit a local seafood restaurant, Shuckers of Wake Forest. If you're looking for good steamed oysters and great service, DON'T GO! We decided on Shuckers because everyone in the three-couple group likes seafood and it was a central location to meet, arriving there early so we'd beat... More

Shuckers is a favorite fall-back place for seafood, without much of a drive for us (10 minutes max). Mid week is a good choice for timing a visit, as weekends are busy and the waits can be long. The wine list is good, and the food is delicious. Weather permitting, eat outside on the terrace, as it can get noisy... More

My husband and I frequent Shucker's Oyster Bar and the seafood is always so delicious! The bartender, Carrie, is so awesome! She is fun, an AMAZING bartender and makes Shuckers the reason we come back! It just wouldn't be the same without her! Keep up the GREAT work!

I was hesitant to try Shucker's as the ratings have not been that great. Used to go here weekly, but had not been for several years. It is a busy place and noise level is pretty high, but we sat at the oyster bar and Dianna was a great server. The Chargrilled oysters were very good. I had a cup... More

Visited yesterday. My server was new and had another young lady assisting her to get online. Both were great as I tossed out the most difficult menu questions I could think along with one about the baked potatoes. The service was so good it pulls my review up one because on this visit the food was unspectacular. I had a... More

Wife and I each ordered a hamburger, medium well. Both were rancid. The outside was charred, the inside was raw. Got credit for them, but manager argued they were OK. Took forever to get replacement meals (crab cake sandwich and small house salad). Both were good.

This Shockers is a lot more upscale than the original. I personally like the original better because it reminded me of being back home at the beach, but is still very nice.

Stopped in for some pre-Thanksgiving seafood. There's good, bad, and a great manager mentioned in this experience...making it hard to assign an overall rating. I'm giving a 3 in hopes someone will pay attention. We've been here before but only for raw bar, this was our first 'dinner' experience. (Visited many times before when it was the dive raw bar...
