“Great food, but a little expensive”

This place was recommended by locals, so we knew it would be pretty good. It was VERY good, actually, just a little expensive. For example, my father in law ordered the soft shell crab. It was an appetizer, came with no sides and was around $13. He ordered a side salad and it was $5.25. Maybe that's the going rate for soft shell crab, but not for a side salad with iceberg lettuce. The rest of our party ordered the crab burger, grouper fingers and grilled shrimp and it was all really pretty great. Bottom line: food is wonderful, just watch the prices if you're on a budget. Would go again for sure!

We love the addition of the expanded outdoor seating. Deck is well made with plenty of seating. Food is delicious and fairly priced for the area. Service is excellent. Servers are prompt and friendly. Large indoor area for dining. Good for when the weather is not so good. We live close by and go there often.

Friendly servers, but the food is over priced and less than average. Tastes like frozen fried, reheated.

as my title said very disappointed, we used to live in Fernandina and we would go to shucker's almost every week so we were excited to go back and meet our friends there. It was such a disappointment. We were sad since we told our friends our great it was. Service was beyond terrible, which is really what killed it. The peel and eat shrimp we ordered as "hot" and they came chilled which wasn't a huge deal...except this trend continued....Mind you we were there on Halloween and it was not at all busy, literally 4 tables filled. We sat with empty beer pitcher and glasses for awhile, no server or bartender in sight (hanging out in the back ??? No idea). Finally we got to order a pitcher of beer and we waited and waited and it never came, my friend went to the bar and picked it up herself, no idea where our server was (again). When she came out with our food she didn't even acknowledge that she never brought our beer to us. my friends grouper came as a filet instead of the nuggets she ordered, my grouper came fried instead of blackened, the other two orders were right. It took so long to get our food we ate it. Again we sat with empty glasses, and we finished our food before she came back to "check" on us. At that point we were done waiting and decided to skip another round and left. Honestly in awe that the server didn't realize how bad things were going and we have no idea why everything took so long. We have been there many many times before and it was never like that. I have no idea if this type of "service" is the new norm, but hopefully it isn't.

Had a dozen raw oysters on the half shell......they were great! Beautiful day to sit out on their deck and enjoy some great oysters and Florida sunshine!
