... 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

Abbeville has three good rests in town. All have great dinning. Shucks is excellent consistent unique food. Biggest Shrimp, outstanding Oysters, best Seafood Pasta, great service and they have a drive through. The drive thru will become a very convenient thing. See once you eat there you will be wanting to go back for more. Unfortunately if you don't go... More

Simply the best oysters I have had in Lafayette area. Raw, Rockefeller, and two or three others roasted on the half shell. Great poboys and an array of local broiled and fried seafood. Very good gumbo too.

The title sums it up. Ok, why 3 stars? Service is somewhat disjointed. Have to ask different servers for orders and refills. Fantastic raw and grilled oysters. Fortunately that is the norm around here. food 4**** atmosphere 3*** service 2**

As a Louisiana native, this restaurant is my favorite in the Lafayette area. The oysters on the half-shell are always high quality. And the menu has a lot of other offerings, not just fried seafood. On this trip, I went with family. Enjoyed a dozen oysters on the half-shell -- they were plump and salty and so tasty. It was... More

We came for lunch. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. It was worth the wait. The oysters on the half-shell were some of the best oysters we've ever eaten. The fried catfish and shrimp were also delicious. We split the seafood platter and could not eat it all. Highly recommend Shucks! We'll definitely be back.

We ate lunch at Shucks on December 26th. A good place to be be after Christmas. The owner greeted us and later came to our table to give recommendations on the menu. My husband had a dozen raw oysters, my friends and I had the oyster sampler and a cup of etouffee. Plus we had a round of bloody Mary's.... More
