We went here for dinner, it's a small place. We had to wait a little bit. We ended up sitting at the bar which was perfect for us. Good selection of beer, wine and liquor. We shared a pound of peel and eat shrimp. They were soooooo good!! We could have came back again if we had time. Would definitely... More

Perhaps my expectations were too high because of all the great reviews, and in fairness, one could have a good time here, decent food, and excellent drinks. But waiting 35 minutes at the bar for a dozen raw oysters before 6 pm seemed a bit much, and the other person in my party, who ordered fish and chips, found both... More

So this is really a bar but the food is so good. We noticed that getting in early have us our choice of barstools. The lobster roll was great and the bottlecap jalapenos are such a good idea. Hubby had the low country boil which didn't include crab but he was very happy and stuffed. This place does feel local... More

This is the original location of Shuckin Shack. Pull up a seat at the bar and dine among the locals! The service is great and the seafood awesome. We start with a dozen oysters on the half. Then, fresh steamed clams and NC shrimp. The steam pots are also excellent. Perfect for people watching, catching a game on TV and... More

Good local oysters & shrimp- large selection of beer. Bunch of flat screens. Friendly attentive staff. Try the deep fried pickles - really they are great. Not too pricey. Small kinda noisy, but fun.

Stopped in here on New Years Eve for lunch. We sat at the bar and gorged ourselves on fresh oysters from Stump Sound and a couple of draft beers. The two ladies working the bar and surrounding tables were working their butts off...they were pleasant, never stopped running, and kept our beers full. Awesome, local spot!

Thank Andrea T
