Found shucks accidentally while in Omaha. Dinner for 2 with a dozen oysters and a drink a piece for $60 is hard to find, but Shucks can do it! Excellent Red beans and rice. Unique find in the Midwest. If you ask for blackened, you get it, and that was much appreciated. Will be back.

Shucks.. Great food.. Great service.. Great place.. why go somewhere else? No matter what time of day, the food is always fresh, and the service is excellent; all servers are very friendly and helpful! What I love about Shucks, is that they recognize me, call me by my first name, and know what I'm going to order!! :)

A great pre-Father's Day late lunch that really was great. Service was quick even with a pretty full house. All appetizers and entrees prepared exactly as ordered. OK, if you know us we're chowder snobs, so we'd pick the lobster bisque over the chowder. Everyone got to slurp a couple of oysters from the roundabout sampler. Lobster roll was a huge hit - fresh as you can get here in the land of corn, cows and cranes. Fresh fish special (I'm guessing, I don't see it on their regular menu) of cajin orange roughy over rice had a nice little kick to it, and sweat too. Neither the hot or the sweet hid the flavor of the fish though - a good thing too since it was very tasty.

I have spent much of my life on the East Coast. I come from a family of fishermen and sea food eaters. Shucks reminds me of a Chesapeake Bay crab house, but its in Omaha. I believe they were trying to create a gulf coast atmosphere. The food in the restaurant is very good. Today we decided to try the Red Trout (the color comes from the seasonings). It had a delightful dill sauce and was a very generous serving. It was superb. The prices in the sea food store seem a little exorbitant, but the restaurant prices are quite reasonable for a sea food restaurant. Friendly service in a casual atmosphere. Worth a visit if you're in Omaha.
