So you go to the beach to have some fun and we just loved this place. It is a tiny place and basically a wierd combination of chaos and comfort. It is just a stone throw to the docks and fresh seafood and the menu...More

Small place, mostly have a bar and a few tables. Only one table for a party of 5, which was open when we got there. Service was adequate, fish and chips were good but not stellar. Convenient to the boardwalk though.

My husband and I visit this place at least 2 times when on vacation in Carolina beach. The seafood is fantastic. I love the shrimp and my husband loves the oysters. Great selection and combination dishes. It's a Carolina beach must!

Wow, now we know why people flock to the Shuckin Shack! The seafood (shrimp and oysters) were outstanding. By far the best we ate anyway in CB or Kure beach. Reasonable priced, great daily specials and great service.

Kind of a hole in the wall - we drove by it the first time. It’s not big but was totally worth it for the oysters and shrimp. You can get the shrimp seasoned 3 ways - all good. Service was quick even though it...More

As other reviews have noted, this place is small. Mainly a bar with a few tables along the wall to eat. I had the 1/2 pound of shrimp and small (5) wings, wife had the fish and chips basket. Shrimp were large and steamed just...More
