Today we really weren’t in the mood for oysters. We like the small ones from Washington and these looked too big for our tastes. The couple behind us said the fish and chips were good. We tried them but they were okay. My husband had...More

This is one of the few places in Carmel that looks slightly more traditional as opposed to the more modern cafe's and bars that line the main street. However, its very popular and because it's small guests seem to be cramped into a a very...More

Went there on recommendation of local retailer. Had to wait for a table but lunch was worth it. I had fish and chips, my wife a tuna sandwich. Finished with homemade key lime pie. Really good eating in a fun environment. Go.

Want to have a bite for dinner and not a fancy place to spend $$$$? AW Shucks is one place to go in Carmel for seafood. Good for oysters but do not miss the fish tacos or selection of bourbon

We didn't eat here but we went for a few drinks. It's got a lively atmosphere and a fab bar maid who made the best cocktails. It was always busy when we were there and the food looked good.

Stopped by for early lunch of oysters & wine. Perfect seat at the bar, waitress Laura (the Best). Stayed for several wines and had NO complaints. Although maybe serving the oysters on a bed of ice would improve the presentation.

We visited AW Shucks for lunch. They had large portions and the fish and chips were excellent. The beer was cold, the service was good, and this place was packed. It's obviously popular for a reason. I certainly recommend.
