What used to be A.W. Shucks is now called the Oyster House on Market. This new and improved seafood restaurant has the look of an upscale establishment, but the prices are more reasonable. The outdoor patio is a great place to grab dinner and watch the world go by on Market Street, especially on breezy summer nights.
Once an old warehouse, the restaurant interior has soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls and original wooden beams. The entire bar, now called O-Bar, has been totally revamped into a trendy meet-up spot for old friends or new ones. There’s even a private dining space available for special occasions.
Of course, the oysters are delicious, but don’t pass up the shrimp and grits, lump crab cakes or Lowcountry shrimp boil. It’s southern seafood at its finest. The Oyster House is by far one of the best restaurants on the Market for not only its extensive menu, but also the atmosphere. The friendly staff knows how to take care of customers and will go above and beyond in service.
Visit the Oyster House at 35 Market St. in downtown Charleston to see the renovations to this fabulous location.
