The sign said “open at 11”. Another sign said “best Bloody Mary”. Lucky me. It was 11 in the morning! I had been shopping on Ocean Avenue and my bags were getting heavy. I’m always in search of a great Bloody Mary. This one didn’t...More

Been going to Shucks for over 10 years. The staff is always friendly, the beers are always cold, and the oysters are fantastic. The oysters with Parmesan are to die for!! Can't wait til next time?

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet dinner in this small but attractive restaurant. The service was friendly and surprisingly fast. We loved the colorful fish mural covering one wall. After dinner we were able to strolled down to the beach to watch the sunset.

Had lunch at the bar, in front of the chefs, everything looked great. We had oysters and beer. Sandwiches looked great. You cannot go wrong at this place, the only difficulty is deciding what to order.

Very small but very good, the staff is great and very friendly, they have a small kitchen view counter, the place to sit and watch them prepare your food selection. This place is an institution in Carmel.

After looking round Carmel we called in for lunch. The place is compact but we were quickly seated. We shared fish and shrimp tacos, which were delicious, washed down with "Luponic Distortion" IPA. At $34 before tip it was an inexpensive lunch, considering the area.
