A.W. Shuck’s Seafood Restaurant & Oyster Bar

Augustus Waring Shuck was a skilled harbor pilot, river guide and fisherman. In those days very little commercial fishing existed, except for a specialized group of men known as the Mosquito fleet. A.W. saw an opportunity to sell their catch by starting A.W. Shuck’s Seafood Company, located at almost this very spot on Market Street. They proudly offer their traditional Charleston seafood fare in tribute to A.W. Shuck
