SHUCK Seafood + Raw Bar
The best oysters I've ever had. Excellent service. Helped us deal with our tired and cranky 18 month old. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
The food was wonderful. The atmosphere was charming. Even though there weren’t many people, it seemed quite loud.
The food was good, we all enjoyed our dishes. Our only gripe is that we ordered a bottle of wine and it was clearly forgotten because we had to remind one of the servers. When it was finally brought to our table, it was already poured off into 6 glasses. We didn’t even see the bottle. They should bring the bottle over to the table and show that they open it in front of the diners. That way we’re sure we’re getting the bottle we ordered. It was the first time this happened to me so I was really surprised, in hindsight I should’ve told the server or manager.
Fresh oysters were fantastic and we all enjoyed our entree. Service was prompt and efficient without being overbearing.
Super expérience ! Je recommande, les lieux sont magnifiques.
Best seafood tower I have ever had. My husbands pasta was ok but definitely the place for raw seafood!!!
Tourist trap is really all that you can say about this place, much better food can be found in Halifax
Triple Play---- Great Food, Good ambiance, Great serving staff!!
Will definitely go back!
Depends. The oysters, scallops and octupus were all very good. The service was average. There were long wait times between courses. The staff were all courteous and helpful when asked. I got the impression they were all too busy. The biggest problem was the noise level. It was so loud at times from clanging dishes and loud patrons that we could not hear one another in conversation. We decided to eat indoors. Outdoors may normally be quieter, except there was a carnival directly opposite the dining area and it was very loud. If you like well prepared and presented seafood this will keep you happy as long as the noise and service is not too distracting.
Very enjoyable, good value, very good service.
My husband is intolerant to seafood but we chose this restaurant because he wanted me (his wife) to expecience a delicious maritime meal.
Because of his difficulty with seafood, he ordered chiken which resulted in a patronizing look from the waiter.
To top it off, the tip was included in the bill but we did not notice because we just wanted to pay and go. So we added another tip! Our fault but the waiter could have offered the information. It was the only restaurant in Halifax that we went to that had the tip already on the bill.
Our waitress helped us choose great fresh oysters and the seafood boil was delicious!
The best food on offer is the fresh seafood, especially oysters. Other dishes could use more finesse.
It was the first restaurant we ended up booking, and did not disappoint. The vibe of the restaurant is really comforting and comfortable, service was exceptional and knows the food and drinks available. The waterfront walkway is just a few steps away. Nice corner restaurant. Would definitely go back and recommend to other people.
It was a pleasant experience,food was good they made me a special salad was very good and it was a beautiful day out as we sat on the Deck Tks.
The food was delicious, as usual, with fast and friendly service.
4 of us for food our server Emily K was excellent, always checking in making sure all was OK. We had the “Tower” and a “Boil” between the four of us.
The Tower is if the truth be known poor value. Food is good but there is just not sufficient for the price. The boil represented better value.
You have to try the BBQ Cauliflower....
Awesome oysters and meal on the whole. Service was a little slow, but very pleasant servers.
Honestly, I didn’t have any food, so I can’t say anything about it.
Wanted to take Mom for seafood. Sat down at 6:15 for a 6:30 reservation. We were early but the place was empty so no
My wife and I ate at Shuck for the first time. It was our wedding anniversary. Service was prompt and friendly & atmosphere quiet, which was great. My wife ordered the scallops and I had the Shuck Boil. Food was just ok... I expected better. Scallops were over done & very salty. My lobster was over done and there was an abundance of empty clam shells in the bowl, but just two actual clams. We are Maritimers and we love our sea food. Not a good first experience at Shuck....
Happy hour oysters, fish and chips and the Honey Bee cocktail are all delicious!
We had a late sitting on Friday this summer. It took approx 20 mins for someone to bring us some water, and another 10 before we got the drinks. Thankfully the food came out quick and it was very good.
I’m not sure if this restaurant justifies its price.
We had a great time. Super friendly staff, who were knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The oysters were a fantastic representation of what Atlantic Canada has to offer. We also sampled the pickled char, halibut ceviche, and for mains the scallops (huge) and the Shuck Boil with 1/2 Lobster. Highly recommended.
We were greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant and seated promptly. We were given the choice of the patio or inside, we chose the pad II. We had a great view of the harbour. Our server was very friendly and quick. Food was great,
It was a little bit too noisy for us. There was a party going on and they were very noisy. One of my daughter has autism so she was a bit overwhelmed. We came early to avoid the crowd but still too noisy.
One of us had fish and chips. Chips were great, fish was overcooked and dry. Other person had crab claws. Claws were nicely prepared and tasty. Service was very pleasant and efficient. Used a Groupon which helped make the cost of the meal reasonable.
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.
