This is a fine restaurant and has been around I understand for a long time and you can see why. I have eaten here a few times and I loved the crab lasagna. Good service and a busy place as it is right on the corner, thus easy to find and very popular with tourists and locals so I was... More

Best meal we have had in Surfers. At the higher end of pricing but for service, meal quality and ambience outstanding.

Best food and service that we have had at a restaurant in quite a while. I also ate at Shuck in August 2016 and the food was brilliant then too (garlic prawns and crab lasagne - a must!). Good enough for Sir Anthony Hopkins (dined there next to us in August!)

Very disappointing experience! Waitstaff were very rude and treated us as though we were an inconvenience. This was to be a special occasion as my daughter was visiting from Canada and we were on the Gold Coast from Sydney visiting my sister.We were informed by the waiter that there were no cocktails as the bar was closed due to it...

We went there for "the Lunch that Drags" as a part of the Gold Coast's annual glitter festival. Located on the Gold Coast at Main Beach on the famous “Tedder Avenue”, Shuck Restaurant & Shuck Bar is the perfect corner position for people watching, whilst enjoying a cocktail or some of their wonderful food. Although famous for our Sand Crab... More

We ate here one night for dinner. The food was OK but expensive. The service was over powering. It was like you get on Lygon Street in Melbourne. I felt we were rushed and pressured into making decisions until I registered my dissatisfaction. With two adult meals, one child’s meal and no desert and a medium bottle of wine it... More
