“Fantastic oysters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Some of the best grilled oysters we ate on a week-long trip through Louisiana. Especially noteworthy are the oysters chargrilled with their own "Sassy Sauce," made of Steen's Cane Syrup (from Abbeville).

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

We had a great dining experience at Shucks!
The oysters, crab claws, and Flounder were perfect!
Our waitress did an outstanding job and the owner checked our table three times while we were there!
Too bad we live in a Arkansas or we would probably eat there three nights a week!

“What a lovely place :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I'm not a sea 'foodie' but my wife is and this place was recommended by the lady that we were staying with. We arrived a bit earlier than most as it busied up later. Lovely food (there are non fishy alternatives including gator), great service and the manager took some time out to come and talk with us. Very popular wi the locals, so they must be doing something right and we wouldn't argue with that. If we had stayed in the area a little longe we would have definitely returned. Well worth a look.

“Wow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

The oysters in the sugar cane pepper glaze and the bread pudding are the most wonderful things!!! The Cane Break beer was nice and cold, so it rates a mention, but the oysters were amazing. And the bread pudding, complete with a delicious rum sauce, is worth the calories.

We also had the other oysters on the sampler plate and whole good, they pale in comparison to the others.

“So what is so great about this place?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We eat out a lot, I MEAN A LOT. What is so great about Shuck's? It was not bad, but it was not better than any of the restaurants in Lafayette, or Maurice. We passed several places that are as good or better during our trip from Lafayette to Abbeville.

I will say that our server was FANTASTIC but you can't eat your server!
