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.

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 😊

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.

Thank you

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!).

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
