4 of us pigged out at Shucks for lunch today. We tore through 3 dozen raw, 2 dozen supreme, 3 seafood salads, and bloody Mary's. Totally awesome and great! David and Susie have the BEST seafood restaurant EVER!

We stopped in at Shuck's because an online review recommended the étoufée. Great dish. Spoke with Dave B., - it turns out the dish is his mom's recipe, and couldn't be better. Paired that with fried crayfish bites, while my wife had shrimp with vegetables. Super flavor, and affordable. Don't forget to leave room for the bread pudding. We came... More

We will absolutely eat there again. The food is fresh, staff friendly but beware, you must get there really early or you will stand in line a long time!

My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Shucks and it was near our Hotel. We chose from the Appetizer Menu and it was a wonderful choice. We had crab claws and crab cakes with their speciality sauce. The wine choice was nice and the service was excellent. Although it was very crowed, we were able to be seated... More

A group of RV campers from Betty's RV Park, decided to meet at Shucks. Those who'd already been there, met almost daily till they left Abbeville...the reason we wanted to join them on their next visit. We went along for the experience. I always order crab cakes from seafood menus. Remaining true to myself, I did it again; ordered a... More

... with excellent seafood offerings. The service is attentive, and you MUST try the bread pudding. A full selection of local hot sauces is at every table.

We had a table of 15 and everyone enjoyed their food tremendously. The service was very good and I would definitely recommend Shucks to anyone visiting Abbeville. We will definitely go back. Prices were reasonable & a lot of locals eat there, so you know it has to be good. The manager visited our table & that was a nice... More

We were there about 1:15 on a Friday for lunch, they were busy, but we were seated after a short wait. The owner David Bertrand greeted us and discussed the menu with us. We are quite fond of Cajun style cooking and know what's good. This place is where you can find REAL Cajun food. Locally sourced and made the... More
