I first was introduced to AW Shucks during a Norfolk bar crawl in the Ghent area. They offer fresh seafood at very reasonable prices for both lunch and dinner.
Pictured above is the seafood steamer (half not whole). It consists of mussels, oysters, shrimp, clams, and snow crab legs, smoked sausage, new potatoes, and corn on the cob (all for under $20!). I’m usually not a fan of hush puppies, but the ones at Shucks are mighty delicious! All the seafood is fresh and delicious! This is at the top of my list of seafood dishes in the area.
On a different day, a friend and I went back to AW Shucks for lunch. She ordered fish and chips with a side of mac and cheese (left), and I got an half of a oyster po boy sandwich with fries (right).
I love fried oysters but I don’t really like sandwiches served in bread cut length-wise. You end up with a mouthful of filling, then a mouthful of bread. Nevertheless, the sandwich was tasty and the fries were crispy and delicious.
Luisa got hearty serving of fish and chips, which she enjoyed. The cheese in the mac and cheese was some sort of white cheddar, rather than the typical yellow cheddar, which she thought was interesting but not a must-have item.
