The blackened grouper tacos were outstanding as well as the grouper sandwich! My kids were equally as happy with their burgers & fries. The cheesy grits were very delicious too. The service was amazing, down to earth, friendly, helpful & super sweet people!

This restaurant looks like a small hole in the wall type place. I have passed by many times to and from the beach. What a surprise when my wife and I went inside to check out the food menus. Great selection of fresh seafood options...More

Hidden away down in a little valley off Cortez Rd. at the intersection of the Bridge, this casual bar and grille is a great hangout for boaters and "those in the know" who really do know how good the seafood specialties are at this place....More

We had great service, sea food and drinks on a sunny day. The fish and chips are really good a couple of us had it and really liked it. The clam chowder was also excellent. Family freindly, everyone left happy.

A little slice of old Florida. Eclectic décor, but truly great seafood, including one of the best blackened grouper filets I have ever had. Friendly staff and superb mixed drinks, just over the bridge from Anna Maria island, and well worth the slight detour.

We were tired of the pricey island restaurants and bars. Went to the Sarasota Kennel Club and placed bets on the Kentucky Derby. Then retreated to O'Shucks to watch the race. VERY friendly and warm. Best local experience on the trip. Moderately priced food and...More

Off the beaten path from Bradenton Beach but glad there is a path that goes here. Fantastic little dive of a restaurant that serves what may be the best blackened grouper sandwich I have ever eaten. For an appetizer decided to try the grouper cheeks,...More

We don't eat raw seafood so my response is based on some of the places we visited and might be your best bet. There are a number of fish house style and locally owned restaurants that offer raw oysters and cold shrimp as... More

Hi - do you offer a fisherman's catch? We caught some redfish yesterday and we are looking for a place to cook it for us. The fish is filleted and ready to cook. The guide mentioned that some places might do this, he just didn't know where. Thanks!

I am not sure if O'Shucks would do this, you would have to call them.
