We almost didn't find it but boy were we glad we did. We visited 2 or 3 times in less than a week. Nothing we had was bad, with the exception of the waitress. Definitely worth the wait.

Selected this from Tripadvisor when in the area. Parking lot was a little dark but we found it. Met by friendly hostess and perfect waiter Matt. Every course was delicious. Oysters Romano similar to Oyster Rockefeller were as tasty as any we have ever eaten. The tomato and crab chowder was a savory vegetable soup with lots of flavor and... More

We stopped in for a late lunch after googling for restaurants in the area. A.W. Shucks had great reviews and with the seafood/burger focused menu it seemed like it would have something for everyone. It was tucked away in the corner of a little shopping area, and first impressions were that it had a seafood shack kind of vibe. Once... More

We met our out of town friend's for dinner prior to the Old Dominion Basketball game.The food was delicious and the staff were friendly. The only reason for the lower ranking was the food was served lukewarm. But my burger was perfect.

Definitely my go to place for causal dining on some of the best consistently prepared fish/seafood in the Ghent area. They have a selection of fresh catch choices for lunch and dinner cooked in whichever way you choose. No disappointments in past 5 years of becoming a regular. Hollie is by far the best for helping you find great choices... More

Went here with a group of friends. The steamed shrimp is amazing- big prawns finished with old bay and onions. Their salads are amazing too. The portion sizes are very generous and great, though the mussels were a bit disappointing. Would highly recommend this place to any seafood lover. Would come back again. Service was excellent too.

Nice raw bar with decent selection of alcohol. Came here for oysters and was not disappointed. Also been to their AYCE crablegs and it was delicious. Menu is ok nad you're probably going to find something for everyone. Service has always been great, wait time not too bad and we've been here during peak hours. A bit pricey but overall... More

We like to go there with friends and family as a group at a big table. The service can vary, depending on the crowd, but it is always worth the wait. The wine selection is variable also, but a splendid time is guaranteed for all. The outside enclosed porch is fun in warmer weather with big round tables for 6... More
