We were there for lunch and had an amazing experience! The service was excellent and so was the food! We had a ceaser salad with crab and crab cakes! Think the Caesar was a better choice than my crab cake but I could not complain!!...More

Service was great, margaritas were perfect, and the Oyster Shuckefellers were to die for. Also tried the clam chowder which was just as good as everything else...Tip, try adding the Chamucos Hot Sauce if you like spice. AW Shucks did not disappoint.

We stopped by to get a drink and ended up having the Oysters too. The Bloody Mary was excellent, the Oysters fresh and the service was wonderful. Their selection of beverages is one to behold!

The fresh oysters are the best here and great friendly servers. The chowders are very fresh and delicious ! Come here if you want excellent seafood.

Crowded and lively with a cool bar vibe. Located in the heart of the Ocean Avenue restaurants and shops. Since we are not oyster eaters we opted for sandwiches. Portions are enormous and ingredients fresh and tasty. Very noisy during midday lunch rush, but fun.
