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.

    Food was fair. Shrimp scallop Pasta was delicious but a bit spicy for me (just a preference really). East coast boil was good except for the lobster being overcooked. Server was bad. Kind but just dropped the bill on the table..an irk for me.

    Hello, We appreciate your feedback regarding your experience with us. The server who took care of you on Saturday evening is a kind, hard working, professional server who has been with us for over two years. We have had nothing but positive feedback from guests regarding her performance during that time and are happy to have her as part of our team. I'm sorry you did not enjoy your time with us, but maybe we are just not for you.

    My family loves oysters but I do not but, every time I visit Halifax, I go to this restaurant because everything is so fresh and delicious . My family shared three types of oysters and then mussels. I had calamari and a large Caesar salad . All was terrific!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The Shuck Ceasar was the best cocktail hands down!!!

    Went there for happy hour, the selection of oysters was only limited to two varieties instead of what I'm used to when I go there of being able to choose a few different varieties the raw bar was no longer included in the happy hour pricing so all it was was two offerings of oysters for the $1.50 they were rather small and quite a bit of shell in them. The last round that we did we were only able to get one choice and they were very small and a lot of shells in there. I also feel that for the amount of people were there our server although he was really nice was not as attentive as people ordering lobster and larger items than the happy hour stuff which is what my friend and I usually go there for.
    SHUCK Seafood + Raw BarResponded on February 18, 2024
    Hi Christa, Thank your for your feedback. We appreciate that you have dined with us for happy hour regularly in the past, but we have not offered our raw bar dishes in our happy hour pricing for over two years. We started offering select oysters for happy hour over a year ago due to the rising cost of oysters and we wanted to be able to continue offering them at the $1.50 price point. We're very sorry you did not enjoy your recent visit with us and hope you will dine with us again.

Fresh oysters were delicious and extremely reasonable during happy hour. No upcharge for salad rather than fries. Overall great time and we will come back for sure. Cheers Wendy

    This was one of the best experience I had in a long time, Ariane was a star, funny, courteous and present when needed. As for the food, I was speechless, the scallop ceviche was on point, perfectly seasoned, the oysters were ordered a second time they were so good and the main, a bowl of East Coast Boil (bouillabaisse like) finished my evening with wonder, I relished every bite. Also, to my delight, a local wine was suggested and made a great pairing with all my food! Kudos again!

    I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was wonderful. There were few people in this restaurant due to being the off season. It is normally very crowded and reservation is a must. The waitress was very friendly and efficient in handing me drinks and foods. Highly recommend this. It is on the expensive side, but the food portions are big enough where you will not leave hungry.

    It's a terrific place. Love having drinks and oysters. Couldn't be nicer. And the service has always been first rate: attentive, friendly, knowing, helpful. First time eating dinner and it was so so. The cod was pretty good with nice vegetables. The fish and chips were not good. Too salty and overcooked. I would recommend for drinks and oysters.

    This was our first time dining at Shuck. The food was good, and the service was excellent. However, it was so noisy my husband and I could not hear each other speak. The place was not overly crowded, and I think the cement floors contributed to the noise. Perhaps the goal is for the dining room to be noisy to generate a certain ambience, but we probably won't go again since conversation is one of the attractions of a nice dinner. Other people might not mind the noise, and since the food is tasty and the service good, they would probably have a good time. Incidentally, I was surprised at that conditions in the women's washroom, which is downstairs under the adjacent restaurant (Cut). The wastebaskets were overflowing, there is peeling paint on the walls, and there was grime along the baseboards. Not what one would expect at a fairly expensive restaurant.

    Hello, Thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us in Shuck. I can certainly understand your frustration with the noise in Shuck as it does often get noisy and it may be difficult to hold a conversation at times. I appreciate you bringing the condition of the restroom to our attention. We are taking action to fix the concerns you mentioned. I would be happy to provide you with a gift card for a future visit with us at Cut/Shuck or any other RCR property in Halifax. Please contact me at aaron@rcr.ca to arrange.

    I tool my wife to this restaurant because she liked the last time we were there. It was her birthday and it was a surprise. I mentioned in my booking it was her birthday and I mentioned it to our server Jazz. (not sure of the spelling) Nothing, notta, not a happy birthday desert or recognition of it. Maybe im old and expect that sort of thing but it was very disappointing to us both
    SHUCK Seafood + Raw BarResponded on October 11, 2023
    Hello Duke, Thank you for your feedback. I'm so sorry for the oversight from our staff yesterday. While we do not offer complimentary dessert for birthdays, we make sure to acknowledge that our guests are celebrating a special occasion and do as much as we can to make their night special. You clearly did not feel that we did enough and for that I am sorry. I would be happy to offer you a gift card for a future visit with us or at any of our other restaurants in Halifax. Please contact me at aaron@rcr.ca to arrange.

    The recommendation to select Shuck for a group of us visiting the area was SPOT ON! Everything at every step of the dining adventure was perfect..from the oysters to the seafood entree's (ESPECIALLY THE LOBSTER!!!) to the drinks and desserts! Truly, if this is the best Halifax has to offer AHHHH-Mazing! Thank you for the wonderful experience!
