Taste buds can easily turn into viciously passive-aggressive taste frenemies without proper attention. Keep your tongue from gossiping behind your back with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood specialties and more off of A. W. Shucks's dinner menu.
Situated in the historic downtown Market area, A. W. Shucks wrestles fresh fish from the clutches of pouched bills and musical mermaids daily and offers them a far more flavorful fate. The restaurant's dinner menu features a wide range of Lowcountry fish favorites and more crustaceans than you can waggle an ommatophore at. Start by savoring a cup of Charleston she-crab soup, a blend of blue crabmeat, fresh roe, and a hint of dry sherry($4.29), before diving into a martini glass of raw shrimp cocktail ($7.59) or a flounder fillet, breaded and fried until golden and fried ($17.99). Thrill-seeking crowds can crowd around A. W. Shucks "legendary" casserole as it tells jaw-dropping-and-closing stories of sautéed baby shrimp and scallops getting baked au gratin in a pool of lobster cheese sauce with Carolina deviled crab ($16.99).
