The oysters were delicious and very fresh...so fresh u still seen the bubbles in the shell when they shucked them..they wasn't dirty or gritty ....also they detach the meat from the shell for you so you're not fighting to get all your meat off the shell....very professional friendly staff...will be back very soon....drinks were a little weak but other than that I will recommend them to anyone for one who needs their oyster fix

*****

Great food fast, great customers to talk over beers with, I will definitely return.

Service was great. Had the seafood fried platter. The oysters on the appetizer were large and a total of 7 fried. Seafood platter was great. Oysters ,shrimp and fish were cooked to perfection. The bier on draft was ice cold.

*****

*****

4.5 would be more like it...Had a 1/2 bucket of raw oysters...delicious...shucked right in front of me, which i appreciate. Shucker was very friendly and quick. Also had their rueben sandwich. Which being from the NE of this country; i am pretty well versed in a rueben sandwich. I would not call their sandwich a rueben but a "Mel". Their pastrami had been smoked.....IT WAS AWESOME. GREAT JOB with that. Can't wait to go back. Well worth it.

What a great concept, casual dining with pool tables, arcade, outdoor dining and oyster bar. I was super excited about dining here while in Florida. We had the bacon wrapped shrimp, oysters Rockefeller, calimari, raw and steamed oysters and everything was really good! I would have given 5 stars but both times we went table service was awful, they look exhausted and seem aggravated to be working. The shucker at the oyster bar however was very friendly as well as the lady who cashed in our tickets for toys from the arcade! I will definitely go back because food and concept of place was awesome.

Fantastic

*****

Food was delicious. Service was slow but they were extremely short staffed. They still deserve 5 stars. Not a single attitude or hesitation for serving us when the 6 of us walked in at 8pm for dinner. This was our second time eating here and the first time we had a great experience all around as well. Keep up the great work!

*****

Absolutely loved this restaurant.
The manager treated us like family, the food was Absolutely phenomenal and the waitress was on point.

Next time I'm in town I will be sure to visit them again. I'm so use to being disappointed when I try out new restaurants, so to get the level of service that we did gets 2 huge thumbs up in my book.

Keep up the good work and thank you Duane for your excellent service at your location.

Highly recommend!!!!

Great food, great service. Had the stuffed mushrooms and cheese steak sandwich...great meal for the price.

*****

A nice hole in the wall place with good food! Our party of 3 started with the super nachos and stuffed mushrooms appetizers, the latter being somewhat disappointing. Both entrees were delicious and portioned well with the Happy Waitress (bacon,tomato, grilled cheese sandwich)having nice crunch and perfectly cooked seasoned steak fries while the steak in the sack tasted great; but it was also missing some extra cost added items. Overall, a decent place to go if your up in the air as to where to eat.

*****

I was there tonight for the first time for my friends birthday and karaoke. I just loved the people and our Waitress and the manager was AWESOME. we had Ashley and when I come back I will be asking for her. The food was great and will be telling my friends about this place and it's not far from home. We will be back again soon. And everyone welcome my special needs son with open arms. That means alot to me. We will be back again.

*****

Great service at the oyster bar by Larry! I always go to Aw Shucks for oysters and my low country boil! You should go too, you won't be disappointed!

*****

Excellent seafood and oyster bar! We had the Oyster Rockefeller, Ahi Tuna and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, Nachos and Lemon Pepper wings with the mango habanero sauce on the side. Everything was delicious, and the staff were great with quick service. The pricing was very reasonable for the quality of food and plating. This has now become my favorite seafood place in the area.
Great job!

*****

Great dam time will return for. A Great time a great food

Great food great service

Aw Shucks is an exceptionally great place to enjoy a great meal and sides along with a very awesome oyster bar. The atmosphere is welcoming and pleasant plus the staff is wonderful! They take pride in the restaurant and deliver excellent customer service! The outside patio is a super bonus and the activities for the kiddos as well as adults just makes it even better! Best BLT and coleslaw ever...check it out...you will want to go back.

*****

Good food. Great staff. Open mic night was a ton of fun with real impressive talent.

*****

This the place to eat oysters I luv this place its the best in town

*****

Cool bar with a variety of arcade games to choose from. Lunch specials are on point and decently priced. Ice cold beer in frosted glasses and a really nice oyster bar.

*****

Always the BEST fried oysters anywhere!!

*****

I was here several times and had the boiled shrimp and oysters. They were always reliably good. I recently went with my family who orfered other meals, and they were less than impressive. I would say if youre going here, stick to the boiled shrimp and oysters.

*****

Service was a little rocky but the food was amazing. I enjoyed the crab stuffed flounder. My brother's fiancée had the meatloaf and she enjoyed it.

My daughter and I stopped in here for lunch. It is kind of off the road and inconspicuous but has a certain vibe about the exterior that draws you in. You walk in and we were seated mediately and they really weren't busy at all! There's an arcade with pool tables and look like other games. They have an oyster bar where they sell buckets of oysters and do the shocking and they have a full-service bar as well. Being that I was with my daughter I did not partake in any of that. But the waitress was spot on and very accommodating as my daughter is autistic and she did not mind that she ate off the children's menu even though my daughter is 18. That goes along way with me. So my daughter of course got her normal grilled cheese and fries and she brought my daughter cherries never questioned anything just had it spot on. For me she let me sub in a salad with brand new homemade blue cheese they had just made I am let me tell you that was some of the Best that I had ever tasted and the fresh salad was really good. My entrée was grilled season shrimp and broccoli to say the shrimp were perfect is even an understatement because they really were tasty and wonderful. The broccoli had a wonderful buttery garlic flavoring as well. The only reason I don't give them a five is the vibe that I got from the other staff other than my waitress but they are definitely worth another visit and I have no regrets

Love this place, another Mandarin hidden gems. Where else can you find an Oyster Bar serving bivalve molluscs from the Northeast, West Floria, Texas or Louisiana? Great staff & attention aimed to please. Nice area for the kinder to hang-out playing the various arcade games for prizes. Large variety in the menu & hefty servings for the hungry. For me though, bring on the OYSTERS, whether you like them slurpy, soft, medium or hard steamed with all the trimmings its where you go to recharge your manhood batteries Outdoor patio with TV's and weekend entertainment. Great hang-out and group party restaurant.
