SHUCK Seafood + Raw Bar
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.
We had a great evening. My wife and I started with a variety of happy hour oysters and followed it with an amazing whole Arctic char for two. A bottle of Tidal Bay made everything even better. The waitress was really attentive, pleasant and fun, without being intrusive. When we didn't request dessert (the char was enormous), she brought us a complimentary plate of little treats to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone was very thoughtful. A great evening, sitting in the outside patio, enjoying a Halifax summer day.
Positives were the calamari appetizer, which had a nice light batter, and the friendly waitress. Negatives were dirty paper menus, the fish and chip main course that was over cooked and the batter was heavy and overpowered the fish, and they didn’t seem to know how to process the gift certificate used to pay the bill, even though it was one of theirs. For the price point of this establishment, disappointing.
Our server was a delightful young lady. We had a tasting plate of local seafood that was excellent. Unfortunately the swordfish didn’t live up to expectations
Cuisine très bien faite
Excellent service & delicious food. The server let me taste two local wines that paired with my dinner to help make a decision. The seafood (as expected) was extremely fresh and well flavored.
Excellent service and food. Love, love, love the oysters. Fish was super fresh with a delicious coating. Can't wait to go back!
The service was fabulous ! I had the shrimp cocktail which was very tasty, followed by the Halibut which was slightly disappointing, and ended with the Pecan Tart which was exceptional ! The Halibut seemed overcooked and lacked flavor.
