We figured this was just a tourist type place (which it is) but it is far more than that. The food and service here are both amazing! Sit outside and watch the boats and the birds!

My kids were in town for Easter and I suggested Shux on the pier. Met at door by owner and sat on deck outside. Our server was Katlyn Smith and what a "Peach" she was very very friendly! One of the best servers as well! Wonderful service. Had the lunch special snapper sandwich, grilled. Melt in your mouth! Cannot wait to go bak!

What a GREAT restaurant. The walk on the pier to the restaurant is beautiful! The restaurant's atmosphere to the restaurant is relaxing and wonderful. Our waitress, Shannon was kind, helpful, funny and very efficient. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

Really enjoyed a nice meal here on a beautiful and windy day. Shux is a great place to enjoy fish, shrimp and oysters. Try the seafood tacos.....stuff it with your choice of seafood. The gumbo is just right. Great setting and good service too

Went there just for appetizers and the oysters were very small and the calamari was not cooked well and would not try it again.

We are very sorry to hear about your calamari. I really don't mean to sound defensive or to be making excuses but we have found that calamari can be very tricky to prepare. In our experience, our guests seem to prefer us to prepare it VERY lightly cooked as it tends to become a bit "rubbery due to its natural texture. I would recommend that if you do choose to try us again, (& we very much hope that you do) that you simply ask your server to have the Chef fry yours a little crispier and we will certainly accommodate. As for the oysters we use, we serve ONLY the most premium available, "gourmet" oysters which do tend to be consistently medium to small which most guests expect. Again, we do apologize for the misunderstanding and hope that you will give us another try.
God Bless, The Shux Family
