Dorothy “DOT” Levine: Miss Dot can be found six nights a week in the kitchen as the “commander-in-chief” It is indeed a pleasure to watch this seasoned veteran put out the wonderful food people stand in line to eat. Miss DOT has served for 30 + years and she is the fire behind the hundreds of plates served each evening. Watching Miss Dot work those fry baskets is like watching a great piano player tickle the ivories. It is amazing that Miss Dot does all this six days a week, but even more amazing is that she does it with such pride and joy. Thanks, Miss Dot, our kitchen would not be the same without you.
Sonnia “PUPPY” Perry: Sonnia’s 30+ years of service is truly a story of loyalty, hard-work, and drive. Sonnia can do anything. She is comfortable in the kitchen, at the register, with customers on the floor or in the office handling the books. Sonnia’s responsibilities are too numerous to list. When a critical eye is needed, we all turn to Sonnia. Her honesty and understanding of the hospitality industry is priceless. She is a fine restauranteur. That is why Sonnia was an easy choice for the General Manager’s position, which she accepted in August of 2007. Thank you Sonnia, it is a pleasure to work along side of you.
Tracie Winters: “Steady as a rock” is the best way to describe this veteran of 30+ years. Tracie’s responsibilities are many and her sharp mind keep lunchtime running smoothly. Never flustered by the rush of a busy lunch Tracie gives 100% day in and day out. Tracie is a pro at any position on the line of our kitchen. A woman of few words, Tracie is valued as a co-worker more than words can describe. Thanks Tracie, we hope for many more years of working together.
Sylvia “Rene” Hunt: For 30 + years, Rene has been the familiar face greeting our guest and providing for their every need. Rene’s good business sense and attention to detail made her our choice as assistant manager and wait staff supervisor, which she accepted in August of 2007. Although Renee’s managerial responsibilities are many, she may very well be your waitperson while dining with us. Rene’s gift of hospitality is obvious as she continues to serve after all these years. Thanks Rene, your love of SHUCKS! and dedication is admired by all.
Carla Durke Richard: The essence of loyalty and dependability Carla has been a member of the wait staff for 20+ years. Carla’s genuine desire to be of service is obvious each time she hits the floor. As a small business owner herself (her other job) Carla understands the importance of consistent food and good service. Thanks Carla, it’s a pleasure to work along side of someone who understands business as you do.
Allison “Ally” Duhon: This 10+ year veteran of the kitchen is a natural when it comes to creating or catching on to new dishes. You can find Ally on the grill six days a week, but her work doesn’t stop there. The delicious oyster stew, crab cakes, and sauces are also her responsibility. If it needs to get done, you can count on Ally to get it done. Ally has endless potential, and we at SHUCKS! hope to work along with her until she realizes all of it! Thanks, Ally.
Elnora “Miss El” Jackson: If it is cloudy outside, you can count on Miss El to be your sunshine. Her beautiful smile, and great sense of humor can lighten up any situation. Miss El has been a steady and always willing member of the kitchen staff for 10+ years. No job is beyond Miss El and her willingness to take on new responsibilities such as our wonderful pasta sauce makes her extremely valuable to our operation. Thanks miss El, We hope you grace us with your presence for years to come.
