Went for apps and drinks, oysters were fresh and delicious, came with 3 types of condiments. Drinks were lovely, as was the service.
Service was excellent and oysters were amazing. The Cali Mari was a little over cooked and not crispy but flavour was good . My fish was cooked to perfection but the fries were not crispy. My husband enjoyed his pasta but wished there was more sauce on top and lobster was mixed in . Overall it was good and we will go back 😊
Beautiful night out at our favourite spot! Wonderful service and delish food
Amazing spot and amazing happy hour deals! Staff was incredible and food was outstanding. 11/10!
Great food, awesome service, amazing martinis.
Our new favorite sport in town!
The menu is very limited but the steak and the lobster pasta that we ordered were both very good, although expensive (steak and frites $40, small pasta with lobster $27). My main complain was that the red wine list is very limited (only 1 cabernet sauvignon) that was served too cold and was of a poor quality (it was $11 for a 5 oz glass but tasted like an $11 bottle of wine). So disappointing!
I was very impressed with the quality of the food served. It was piping hot and tasted delicious.
The waitress Kirsten was very pleasant and consistently followed up to see how the meal was and if we required anything. Kirsten should be commended for her hard work.
My wife and I will definitely return in the future.
Meal and service were 1st class and steak was one of the very best I have ever devoured.
Nice restaurant. Great downtown location. Service was very good. Food was so-so and overpriced for what you get.
Nice location, good food, settings and service. The only thing would be that entree plates sizes where on the small serving size vs more generous plates. If they could adjust this.
The other thing is that it is not too big of a space so loud people conversations and laughter may be disruptive (to be aware, some people don't care being loud and disruptive!).
Awesome service - great food, must go.
Had to order something I didnt want because you didnt have what i wanted. It was a terrible experience.
Happy hour oysters are the best. Service was very prompt and attentive.
We experienced Shuck for the first time this week to celebrate our anniversary. We shared Calamari and Mussels. He had a the burger and I had the Lobster Poutine. To say the food was delicious is an understatement!! So good. Priced great in my opinion. The service was great. She was attentive and knowledgeable while also giving us space to enjoy our night out. They spoiled us with complimentary glasses of presecco. Definitely the next place you should check out in Halifax!
Having our anniversary dinner here was excellent. Waitress was fantastic and food was spectacular. Lighting and ambience cozy and comfortable. 2nd time here many more to come. Highly recommend to anyone.
Delicious seafood tower
It's a seafood place but the burger and steak are fantastic too. The Tuna sashimi has a very tasty soy reduction. My Ceasar was delicious too.
Too much butter but overall very good. The waiter was particualrly nice
The host was thoughtful and moved us outside as soon as a table opened up. The server sweetly helped a 7-year old enjoy an upscale dining experience.
Seafood was not great unfortunately :(. We had a seafood platter mix and both lobsters and crabs were stale in the freezer for a while.. service is great, atmosphere is good too.. their food was better before though, maybe it’s affected by covid. Not sure, but it was too bad.
It was so nice to get out after the Covid-19 Shutdown. We had a wonderful dinner, with friendly, fun service and a great atmosphere.
Oysters were the best I've had! Also appreciated the bonus of a happy hour to enjoy an extra drink :) !
We love coming to this restaurant! We love the atmosphere, the food, and the service is always great! We were so happy to hear you guys re~opened after Covid-19. We’ll be back again soon with our family. 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The seafood was fresh and delicious
By far one of the best seafood restaurants in Halifax. This is the first time we went to Shuck and we were so impressed - you must go and dine there - ask for the server Owen, he is the best!
Top notch! Best happy hour in the city by far.
One of our favourite restaurants in city. Especially for their fish and chips. We love that dish their. All fresh condiments. Beer was nice and cold. Staff are always very friendly. Highly recommend.
Excellent food and fantastic service. Quiet and beautiful restaurant!
Server was amazing but food just mediocre. Oysters amazing and drinks were expensive and we’re supposed to be happy hour price but no discount applies and didn’t realize it until after
fantastic!! Great oysters, cocktails and Genevieve , our server was perfect!!
If you like seafood, this is a great place to go. Each time we have been to Shuck, we have not been disappointed. We went on Valentine's Day and they had live music which was very nice. Our waiter, Owen was attentive and personable. Great ambiance and good location downtown.
Atmosphere was wonderful and our server was the best! Great deals for Happy hour as well!
My wife and I consider this one of our favourite restaurants downtown. Fish and chips meal is excellent. Not greasy. Original crispy batter. Very good value for price. Our waiter was really good. Highly recommend.
Great service and lots of options for entrees, small plates and oysters.
We enjoyed our dinner at Shuck, starting with the half-price raw bar. I was thrilled there was more than just oysters to choose from. My husband raved about the oysters, and I loved my carpaccio scallops and tuna sashimi. My husband’s fish was just a bit overdone, but otherwise good, and my roasted fig salad was not roasted and underdressed, but still fresh and tasty. Fish cakes were heavenly! Nice place with attentive and friendly staff. Would recommend.
The oyster and beer selections were fantastic! We had a variety of the oysters and all were prepared well and delicious! We’ll 100% be back for more!
Great evening dining experience thanks to the food, service and lights outside.
Our server Owen was so friendly and knowledgeable. The oysters and oyster selection were amazing and Owen went above and beyond to make our experience great !
Terrible soggy food. Don’t eat here. Would never recommend. Waste of money and time.
Thank you for your feedback Randi. Could you please elaborate on the issues you had? We are not accustomed to this sort of comment so we would love to know how we can improve.
