For a city known for its coastal pleasures and crystal-clear waters, when it comes to casual waterfront restaurants, Miami is seriously lacking. Enter Shuckers Waterfront Bar & Grill, a sports bar with a view so gorgeous it's impossible to keep your eye on the ballgame. As its name implies, Shuckers is also home to some of the best oysters in Miami. They've got steamed clams here, too, as well as peeled shrimp, a hardy burger, and outrageously tasty wings. Shuckers is the answer to "where should we go to eat?" no matter who's asking the question.
Five Best Miami Restaurants to Dock and Dine by Miami New Times
Known for its picturesque views, grilled wings, and a wide variety of seafood, the restaurant can accommodate vessels up to 65 feet. Sailors on the go might want to order from the new "Sail Away" menu by calling ahead; a staff member will bring your order directly to the dock, no disembarking necessary. The family-style menu includes the restaurant's "Sandbar Platter," which feeds up to four people and includes 40 grilled wings with a choice of dipping sauce and a Caesar salad or sidewinder fries. Then there's the bikini platter — 16 to 20 beer-steamed shrimp served with cocktail sauce, garden salad, and choice of dressing. Domestic beers are available, as are to-go bottles of wine and liquor. (Boaters receive a free mixer with the purchase of a bottle of liquor.)

"You ask a local about Shuckers and there’s a high chance they know about it, reminiscing on their times there with a smile. It might not be highly artisanal or overtly trendy, but that’s not what you want out of the place anyway. In an ocean of over-priced and quickly closed restaurants, Shuckers has stood the test of time with an inimitable chill factor. The boat-friendly joint has survived much over the years, still standing tall for regulars of all ages." Read More
