Knocking out affordable seafood since 1978, Shuck’s is still an oyster bar at heart, with a huge range of bivalves ranging from Chesapeake Bay Selects to Carolina Cups. Having said that, the range of seafood here is phenomenal. The blue crab dip is worth the trip alone, and Ivan’s Steampot is a sumptuous combo of mussels, beer-can clams, oysters, shrimp, and steamed snow crab legs, with smoked sausage, new potatoes, and corn on the cob. For a quicker snack opt for the burgers, shrimp, or oyster po-boys, or the grilled mahi mahi tacos. We’d quite happily stop by just for the peach-bourbon bread pudding. The whole, sprawling establishment is housed in an early 20th-century warehouse built by biscuit giant Nabisco.
