We were just driving through, we were hungry and so lucky to find this wonderful place. Our waiter Igor was very professional and friendly. With the food we didn't have high expectations because in a tourist place you find many commercial places but nothing special, well so I was wrong I had the calamari and the fish and chips and...

Shuck has been a Tedder Avenue stalwart for years. Unfortunately it demonstrates the reason why this previously thriving food street has declined to almost extinction. Setting is beautiful and staff attendant. However this cannot disguise the complete ineptitude from the kitchen. Iberian jamon was swamped with tasteless extras and would have been best left on its own. Scallops were tasteless... More

Enjoyed delicious long dinner over Easter weekend, mixture of pork belly, calamari, garlic prawns & scallops. Finished with banana split and devine sticky date pudding. Only suggestion would be to add a complementary bread roll as starter. Service was good, as we expected. Price was on the higher side, but worth it. Would recommend this restaurant.

Service was excellent. I had the Crab Lasagne on advice from the server and was not disappointed. It was beautiful. My partner had the Shellfish Spaghetti which was equally sensational. Wine list good with plenty available by the glass. We will definitely be back. Keen to try the Garlic Prawns, which I understand to be excellent.

This was our first visit to Shuck and were part of a group of 10. The seafood choices were very good however the menu had other food choices for other diners. This restaurant has won an award for being the best restaurant on the coast some years ago however the chef has continued at the restaurant since that time so... More

I dined at Shucks last year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, however this visit was disappointing. The food was not the problem it was the staff. Very cold and appeared not to be interested in providing good service to our table. I was very disappointed.
