Shucks is one of our favorite places in town. We've never been disappointed in anything we ordered. If you want amazing Louisiana style food, this is an absolute must-do. The food is always delicious and great value.

Grew up on the east coast and traveled both. This place will not let you down. Great oyster bar, with great atmosphere and super staff.

It was a different experience. Very Nice staff. Very casual. There's a bar so you can't go wrong with liquor.
