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.

    Fun and busy happy hour. Great prices on drinks and oysters. Excellent calamari. Burger is fantastic. Dish’s and chips are different..more a dusted/encrusted filet , not a light battered typical fish and chips. Excellent service as always.

    First the good. Alive and busy. Food was good not great. The not so good. Hard wooden chairs. This is not fast food, but uncomfortable seats are annoying. The biggest issue was HORRIBLE service. Finally found a manager who seemed to be hiding in his office as opposed to watching the front. We had our server replaced. New server whose name was Jazz was excellent, but that’s not how it’s supposed to work. There are better choices.

    Four of us from Florida visited Shuck for dinner. we had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We loved the oysters, the lobster and the two-tiered seafood platter. They were great. My wife had the crab legs and was a bit disappointed. Shuck would only serve the crab legs cold, and she felt that while the legs tasted good, they were watery - which detracted from the enjoyment of the dinner (my guess the crab legs were sitting in watery ice in the kitchen?). Fortunately, Shuck did serve the lobster either cold or steamed. I chose steamed and was glad I did. We would revisit this restaurant - and be a bit more cautious as to wour selection(s). I recommend you give it a try!

    SHUCK is consistency! It’s a must every time I’m in Halifax. Best raw bar and prices are reasonable. If you get there by 4pm, you’ll in for the happy hour for oysters at $1.50/oysters from 4-6. Love the atmosphere and the staff are very attentive to our needs and with a big smile. The wine liste is very ordinary but you get accès to the wine list of CUT, it’s a must try!

    Our server was not very well informed about the menu items and when asked questions, was very uncertain and had to confirm things. She was also somewhat distracted or something when taking orders or answering questions.

    My friend and I made last minute reservations on a Sunday evening. I booked our tables outside and requested that we have seating on the side of the building where the cushioned patio furniture is. They fulfilled that request, and fortunately for us, had that whole area to ourselves! The lighting was beautiful. Service was great. Food was wonderful. Dirty Martinis were on point.

    Food was well prepared but there was something that was not on the menu that we did not like, MICE! The patio facing the water was overrun by the rodents scurrying back and forth between our feet - awful. When we told our server, his response was well rehearsed; then we moved inside to a cramped corner on a high top. They are many ways to control this problem, SCHUCK should really do some homework.

    Went for Happy hour for the $1.50 oysters and they were fantastic! My mother had the fish and chips which were average, serving size of the fish was quite on the smaller side, but they give you a large amount of fries. Server was great and friendly.

    Just came to visit Halifax briefly and I thought it was going to be a great experience but the fries were cold, burnt and hard and we weren’t given any napkins, as you know lobster and crab can be messy. I did give a good tip only because I know the service industry.. JUST NEED TO DO BETTER **Albertan**

    It was quite loud in there - though that didn’t bother us. The space was quite tight. We were shorted some of our oysters but our server made sure to make it up. The happy hour oysters were a great deal and were very tasty. Making the reservation online was super simple. We will definitely be back.

    Had reservations. And there were so many empty tables. Seated immediately but waited a very long time for ordering wine and then food. Almost decided to leave. Couldn’t flag anyone down. Place seemed overly noisy, in a bad way. Crashing and banging. Little ambiance. It was good quality food, but the wait was so long everyone was getting too hungry. We made the best of it. But we finished our drinks and sat at an empty table for a long time. Were there 3 hours. We ordered small meals. And when we were served a few people realized how small the portions were and would have ordered more, but with such a long wait we skipped getting meals or desert and just stuck with appetizers and wine. Could have easily been a much better visit with prompt service. Maybe would be okay for tourists in general, but wouldn’t recommend for someone from here, or for hosting or special occasions.
