Seafood
It’s obvious we’re all about oysters (they’re chilling on ice as soon as you walk in), but one look at our menu and you’ll see that Shuck is so much more.

Our raw bar features the freshest fish and shellfish with inventive flavors designed to complement, never cover up. Our snacks, sides, and starters are perfect for sharing, and our mains elevate favourite classics from down home to down right delicious.

Warm wood paneling and eclectic glasswork create an atmosphere that captures the spirit of Maritime living. There’s no red carpet here, but we have laid out the best in paper over our tablecloths so you can get to slurping, sharing, and savoring. Join us for lunch in a jiffy, or hang around for a while over dinner for an experience that’s modern, authentic, and unabashedly East Coast.

Nicole was amazing. She serviced anything we needed. The manager came back at 4:00 because I left my passport for an early morning flight. He drove down and found my document wedged into a vent. Wow. What an incredibly amazing thing to do. I will go back again and again. Food was out of this world but the staff makes the experience.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Prices were great for happy hour. Really tasty dishes!! Great quality. The waiter and waitress that served us were excellent, however, one of the hostesses was a bit rude, maybe just a bad mood? If not for that, this would have been a five star review. Thanks!

Nicole our waitress was fantastic along with all staff from entering to leaving. Nicole definitely made our dinner extra special by connecting with us and especially my mother in law. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We were celebrating my mother in laws last radiation appointment. Thank you for another great dinner. Looking forward to many more. See you soon.

Dinner was great. Half price happy hour oysters are a great deal. The tenderloin was perfect- best steak I have had in a very long time.

Atmosphere was great, I only wish we had sat outside, it was a gorgeous night.

Great for raw items. Our fish and chips had to be returned to the kitchen twice for not being cooked, the batter was fine but the fish was translucent. The server was excellent and handled the situation very well. For the price I would not recommend.

Unfortunately, we were sat by the door even though we had a reservation so we didn't have a comfortable experience as we were beside the bar as well. Overall the good was great but the mussels were undercooked. The fish and chips was amazing.

Apps are fantastic (oysters, ceviche, scallops, tuna, etc) and Happy Hour is a great opportunity for a first visit.
Like all restaurants at present (Autumn ‘21) staff are stretched thin but do their best to accommodate everyone.
Because our table was booked later for another sitting, we were moved outside half way through, which would have been fine if the outside heater had not run out of propane sometime in advance of our visit. Coffee is served in a bodum but was, unfortunately, not hot and very weak. The fish and chips (sub caesar for chips) is uniquely crispy and savoury - well done!!

Went for happy hour. Great oysters and raw bar options for happy hour. Would go back. Sat outside but inside also seemed nice. Only tip would be we found road facing outdoor area a bit loud so hostess was vey pleasant and moved us to the courtyard outdoor seating which was more quiet. Oyster and Saviche were delicious. Also liked that they mixed up the oyster types so you got to try a bunch.

Our server was fantastic. I believe her name is Rebecca and she has served us before. We have been to Shuck many times for happy hour and have invited guests many times. On this occasion we were hosting my sister who was visiting from Alberta for the first time in 2 years. Our only grievance is that the hostess who seated us was not pleasant at all. She treated us as though we were an inconvenience. I do not know her name but she was a young woman with blonde hair. She did not seem happy to be there, or happy to be welcoming us into the restaurant.

The Atmosphere is beautiful. However the service was slow and the table makers were extremely poor. We got served our appetizers with no side plates or cutlery and we had to ask for bread.

The trays they use for Fish and Chips are warped and bounced up and down any time you touch them, my wife and I both had Fish and Chips and both had warped trays. It was annoying enough to ruin the meal.

The fish and chips were fine and my wife said her Caesar salad was great.

Disappointing. The seafood tower had excellent tuna and oysters but the crab and scallops were mediocre at best. The wine pours were astonishing meagre - unlike any other restaurant I have ever patronized. Guess the Marriot is saving money. The filet was perfectly cooked, potatoes over cooked and beets are not an appropriate side with steak for heavens sake! Servers were pleasant , hostess was surly. Won’t be back.

We booked outdoor seating but it was a cold evening and they were able to seat us inside, which we appreciated. Our server was lovely, but a bit forgetful as she forgot to bring my husband’s salad, we had to remind her , she never refilled our water glasses either. The table beside us ordered some more oysters which she also forgot to give them. The oysters were fantastic and our dinners were excellent. We enjoyed our evening.

Rebecka was awesome. She knew her menu and she guided us to what we craved. Food was fresh, and delicious. We ended up showing up early for our reservation, and they instantly accommodated us. Lots of fresh oysters to eat. Order the coffee, it comes in a personal sized French press

This restaurant has a warm and inviting atmosphere. Our server was friendly, although we found there to be a lack of attentiveness (we had to ask for bread, water etc). Our food, (one lobster, one steak), were ok. Nothing wrong, but bland and absent of any meaningful accompaniments. The steak was cooked perfectly, however had no seasoning, and when I asked for some peppercorn sauce it was a staggering $8. On a $50 very small steak with nothing but a few potatoes and over cooked zucchini pieces, it seemed out of line. I got the sauce anyway, and it was literally just jus. We had creme brûlée for dessert and it was decent. Overall, the atmosphere is very nice. I just didn’t think the $50 price tag on the main course dishes was warranted given what you got.

Hostess was kind of rude and brash. Food wasn’t anything special. Expected more based on other reviews. Should probably have turned away earlier. Oysters were good but that’s basically it. The steak from the CUT steakhouse wasn’t anything special.
