Aw Shucks is celebrating 40 years in the Dallas-Forth Worth metroplex.

The oyster bar first opened in 1983 and now offers a wide variety of fresh seafood choices, including fried shrimp, oysters, catfish, boiled shrimp and crab legs, fresh grilled seafood, fish tacos, and po’boy sandwiches.

The restaurant is holding a “throwback” celebration Sept. 28 with several in-house specials.
