My partner and I visited Shucks, last night, for dinner. I didn't get the address, but it's on the West side of Federal Hwy, JUST south of 26th Street, where the Vespa dealership is.
We shared all of our meals. We started with the tuna tartayki, that was served in chunks of rare, rare tuna, coated with ground pepper, and served with a little dollop of mango salsa, and a cup of soy sauce, and a cup of wasabi sauce. The tuna was delicious. Extremely tasty, and perfectly seared. Very good. Didn't use all of the wasabi..
Next dish was steamed little neck clams. They served this in a garlic, white wine broth, with melted butter on the side. The clams were excellent. Little tiny things, with lots of taste. I would have liked to have told the Chef that the granulated garlic did no justice to the meal. He should have used fresh cut garlic, not the jarred stuff. But otherwise, no complaints.
Final dish was their signiature dish, the grouper reuban. This is something to brag about. They took a large filet of fresh grouper and grilled it, and then stacked it with homemade cole slaw, thousand island dressing, mozzeralla cheese, and they buttered and grilled the rye bread.... Absolutely chowhound worthy. I could have eaten another one of these!!!
A side note about the beer. Not only were the mugs frosty, but the Miller Lite draft had ice in it. That's how cold the beer was. Drafts are $1.50 each.
4 beers, 3 dishes, total cost $33.00
How can you beat that?
They have all kinds of 2 for 1 specials.
They also have smaller portions of some of their dishes, at very low prices.
We will be taking some other chowhounds with us to pig out on the Grouper Reubans, again.
Check it out!
