With a motto of "Shuck me, suck me, eat me raw", many people would think that W. G. Shuckers was a porno palace. However, my wife and I found that was not the case. Shuckers is one of the outlets for Savannah's most prized resource: oysters.
My wife and I decided to try out the food at Shuckers. The restaurant is conveniently located on River Street in the Historic District of the city. It is located in a building that was once a warehouse for goods brought in by the river traffic. We decided to try the food for lunch on a Sunday.
Most of the appetizers were oyster-based. So, a bucket of steamed clams seemed to be in order, along with a pint of beer. For the main meal, a variety of seafood was available, as well as a few sandwiches. I ordered the low-country boil, a mixture of shrimp, clams, oysters, fish, potatoes, and corn that is boiled together for a delicious feast. My wife went for her favorite, salmon.
The oysters and the beer were enough to keep us happy until the main course arrived at our table. Then, we ate our fill. Do I need say that we had to take a box home with food that we couldn't finish?
Although we did not try it, I noticed that the restaurant had a full-stocked bar. The waiters and waitresses kept customers amused with witty chat and all who were at Shuckers seemed to have a happy time. I give this restaurant a hearty recommendation.
