Fish and seafood heaven
Daily specials are great. Their crab /shrimp louis is to die for. Also great seafood chowder.

special dinner between shows
My husband was performing in Hairspray, along with 160 other members of the Seattle Men's Chorus, and we needed dinner between the matinee and evening show. Since our college age son was with us we wanted it to be a nice family dinner. Shuckers was perfect. The waiter was professional and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The atmosphere was cozy, and the location was perfect. Even though they list as a pub, I would highly recommend Shuckers, with their wide range of oyster choices, as a perfect special occasion restaurant. We truly enjoyed it. Thank you.

Service and food outstanding
We had an incredibly helpful waiter to told us about the menu, but didn't hover. The seafood was outstanding. Quite noisy outside, but inside was lovely and quiet

Just what we were looking for in a central Seattle seafood restaurant near the Hilton. Nice oyster selection and options. Good selections of local draft beers. Classy and interesting decor but casual attire and service (not stuffy). My wife's fish was a little dry otherwise all was very nice. Would recommend.

The decor was classic and charming. Table seemed to be a little tight and crowded. Noise level...well... it was a Friday night and what can I expect? It was difficult to hear my husband across the table. However, I cannot complain as everything else was great! It is definately a favorite in town and I can see why. The food is very good and service pretty good (they were busy). Oysters were awesome and I don't even eat them usually. As out of towners we drank beer sampler and that was fun and tasty. I enjoyed the clam chowder... almost as good as you can get on the East Coast. Crab Mac and Cheese was awesome. The food was great and the service was pretty good too! Check it out! I bet it has a great happy hour...

Caters to tourist
While the experience was quite nice it seemed a bit partial to non locals and the wait staff was great with a very vibrant bar scene.

The best fresh local seafood
We sat outside for an early dinner on a very warm day/evening. The street noise and downtown bustle made a great urban backdrop. Inside is cool and old English pub style inside the beautiful Fairmont Hotel-- also very lovely. Shuckers has the best seafood in Seattle. The variety of oysters, salmon, halibut, tuna and many other options is always amazing. The preparation is creative and so are the sides. There are always choices for mixing sides and they take requests for minimizing calories and favorite ingredients. Don't miss the seafood chowder and fresh berry tart for dessert. It is absolutely an incredible dining experience.

Outside Lunch - Seattle style
It was a sunny warm day and the sidewalk tables were full. Started with seafood clam chowder -- the best in town includes crab, shrimp and fish in a rich tomato broth! Seattle club sandwich -- toasted sour dough bread, avacados, lettuce, tomatos, grilled chicken and . . . wait for it . . . large crab legs! End with the amazing berry tart -- fresh blueberries and blackberries in a delicious berry compote topped with vanilla sour cream ice cream. That's "Seattle Style!"

Great as always
Altogether, a very good experience, as expected.
Will never get tired of this place. Delicious seafood, great service!

We can always depend on Shuckers
We can always depend on Shuckers for a delightful dinner before the Theatre. We both had the sea scallops which were cooked to perfection. The corn mashed potatoes were different. Why two starches mixed together? Also the bleu cheese wedge salad was bland. This time the service was alittle slow, but it was our regular server, so couldn't figure that out. We usually have dessert, but didn't have time.

Shucker's is where my friends
Shucker's is where my friends and I always go on theater night. The food is always good, and the service is the best.

Perfect way to end the Evening
After a day of shopping and an afternoon Mariners game, Shuckers was a great place to wind down. We had an earlier dinner around 5:30 and at that hour, Shuckers is very kid-friendly (right down to crayons and colouring). Our server was very accommodating to our 12-year boy and went as far as to bring a taster of the sauce used on the fish to ensure satisfaction.
Very casual and comfortable atmosphere with no pretenses and absolutely delicious food.

This place is a must
There are many other restaurants in the area that you will hear about first. Many of them are really good and you will definitely spend a ton of money there. This place has the same quality food without the waiter/waitress that will think they are better than you. You don't usually need to make reservations, but it doesn't hurt. There is not one thing on the menu I have tried that I have had even the slightest problem with. You can come here for a nice date, all dressed up and ready to go, and at the same time come here in a Hawaiian shirt and shorts and still feel at ease. This should be on the top 3 places to eat while in Seattle.

Rather quiet - understandably - at 4 pm but a very pleasurable experience all round.

Saturday night at Shuckers
Superb oysters, then Halibut and the great crab mac and cheese for my wife. I had the seared scallops. Steve our waiter was very helpful with a great wine selection. Will tell my friends about a wonderful meal

Clubby, elegant atmosphere
Great spot for seafood, well prepared and great quality. Excellent service.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cozy with great food and service
Excellent. While oysters and seafood in general are prominent, the food was excellent for both seafood as well a the fried-chicken selection that delighted my non-seafood eating partner. This was a restaurant experience where everything was good from soup through dessert. Even the bread is excellent.
The atmosphere was very cozy due to the dark wood ambiance of the original wall paneling and bar area, the cushioned booth alcoves and stained glass elements. Though attached to the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, seemed to be loyal locals patronizing it as well as hotel guests. We ate on the early side so not very full and therefore quiet. Full-house would increase the noise level but not the kind of place that would attract a rowdy bar crowd, IMO.

Sea Food and Ambiance
Our server was bright and quick to meet take our order and match our pace. She was one of the best we've ever had.
The food (salmon and halibut) was served simply, cooked perfectly and delicious.
We slipped in just as the happy hour was ending. We enjoyed the house Merlot (Arbor Crest) and the price.
We shared a gigantic and delicious piece of chocolate cake.
The Ambiance of Shuckers is beyond compare.

It's all about the Mac & Cheese
The last time I was at Shuckers was over a year ago. So that means that it has been over a year that I have been dreaming about having their Crab Mac & Cheese again. MMMMMMMmmmmm. Did not disappoint. I don't care what you order for your entree and what color wine you are drinking. If you do not order the Mac & Cheese then you are missing out.
Ok enough about the Mac & Cheese. The service is always exceptional here. Jay, you are awesome. You made our experience as memorable as the last time and I am sure so will the next server we have at Shuckers.
I also recommend the the Seared Wild Scallops and the Ahi Tuna Poke.

Best Traditional Seafood in Seattle
Shuckers heads our list every time we visit. Atmosphere is cozy, wood-paneled and pub-like. Superb bartenders, and blackboards full of fresh catches and regional shellfish offerings all with house-made sauces, great fish chowder, salads of crab and shrimp Louis, fresh halibut, salmon, and crab Mac and Cheese. Feels like London or New York. It's in the basement of the Fairmont-Olympic, but must be run privately, because there is no sense of a hotel dining room. Consistently great for decades!
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great if you are staying at
Great if you are staying at the Fairmont as it is around the corner from the 5th Avenue Theater. Food is very good, particularly the seafood. I had Fish & Chips & it was the best I had anywhere. Service was i bit slow because the restaurant was very busy when we were there and noisy as well but the food was so good it overshadowed the faults. We would not hesitate to dine at Shuckers again.

Has been a favorite seafood
Has been a favorite seafood restaurants of our since it opened. Usually full, need reservations. Lunch also good.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot at the Fairmont Hotel. Good energy and nice food. Great selection of fresh oysters. I enjoyed them along with a nice seafood grill.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
small bar/ seafood restaurant
good, fresh shucked oysters! Served in small bar-restaurant setting. Nothing fancy in the decor.

Great food, wonderful service,
Great food, wonderful service, a table surrounded by beautiful woodwork, but the noise level made conversation difficult.

Get the oyster bisque!
The huge bowl of oyster bisque is a meal in itself for only $13! Had some baked otters as well, which were tasty, but the bisque shined with 6 whole oysters in it as well!

I loved it
My boyfriend and I went to Shuckers for our anniversary. I'm so glad I chose to go there. I totally recommend it. Great food, great service, perfect for a special occasion.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Shuckers is reliable. Excellent food and professional service. Exceeds what you would expect to find as a hotel restaurant.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Staple of Seattle scene
Never lets us down. Always fresh. Never trying some cheap trend. Like a good pair of pajamas.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic oysters in various preparations. Highly recommend the Oysters Parmesan. I would go with the nightly special fish which you can have prepared in one of two ways. The restaurant is small and the tables are close together especially if you are in a party of one or two. I will be back.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Schuckers is one of our favorite Seattle traditional spots. You can count on excellant food iand the service is consistently great. The wine list offers very good choices at a range of prices. Love the salmon.

Ladies Who Lunch
Schuckers reminds me of the Oak Room at the old Plaza in NYC. The dark panel walls, refined clientel and a menu that appeals to both hearty and light appetites. My girlfriend and I have made a tradition of celebrating our birthdays at Schuckers where we ask for a window seat, share a bottle of Sonoma Cuterer and enjoy impeccable service. For total food snobs, maybe not "inventive" or "farm to table" enough, but we usually order the crab ceasar or louie salads in the smaller size and find them delectable. Crisp, fresh, with generous portions of crab and shrimp. It makes me forget I work 6 days a week, 10 hours a day.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Seafood, Ever!
Always the freshest seafood and best menu selections Impeccable service. Will keep going back
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Shuckers is as the name lives up to, a great spot for seafood. The oysters were incredible, but that was just for starters. I had Black Cod with a side of Lobster Mac N Cheese and bother were sublime. I am talking, absolutely incredible. The mac was piping hot, which was the only drawback, but the cod was buttery and moist.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great cocktails, wine and oysters!
We enjoyed Shuckers so much we came back a second night. Probably the best restaurant for oysters I've ever been to. Mostly because they offer so many types of baked oysters that you can order to try with out having to order by the half dozen. We tried every one with out having to commit to more than one of each. Our favorites of course were the raw oysters. We tried all of those too. We also had the lobster Mac n cheese and the artichoke and crab gratin, don't judge, we were on vacation! I would also recommend the beer flight if you are a fan of beer and want to taste some great local craft beers. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Two flawless dining experiences.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding food, great value
and good service in a wonderfully old-fashioned atmosphere. We will come back again and again. Late lunch is calm and quiet. Rachael's plate/special is always a winner!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent oyster selection, fresh seafood prepared with interesting accompaniments. Friendly efficient service.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous chowder and chop salad!
Always eat here when we are downtown! The chowder, soda biscuits, and salads are the BEST!! Yummmy!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Second time here, will come back!
We enjoyed the food here very much. My clam chowder was excellent and my husband enjoyed sampling 4 different kinds of oysters from the Pacific Norwest waters.
Even our six year old enjoyed it- choosing something off the children's menu. :)
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food at a great price with excellent service. Can't ask for much more. Shuckers is the Best!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The deep mahogany woodwork makes a cozy casual dining experience. The divided benches along the wall provide semi-private and romantic seating while offering a view of the action.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Impressed by lunch; back for dinner
I was very pleasantly surprised that making a same-day lunch reservation along with special requests was handled perfectly by Shuckers and Open Table. Our service was wonderful and both of us were so happy with our food that we went back for dinner with my husband. Thank you for a lovely day.

We have been dining at Shuckers
We have been dining at Shuckers for over 30 years. Whenever we plan a trip to Seattle, we dine at Shuckers. The seafood selection is excellent and always well prepared. The service is exceptional. For a night on the town, Shuckers cannot be overlooked...the restaurant is just across the street from the 5th Avenue Theater.
