Was our second time as first time was for a celebration and not stellar experience. A year later and not much has changed. Food was ok, service was ok and we sat on the patio so likely service would be better if we sat inside.
Service wasn’t great. Not the waitresses fault she just had too many tables I think. She was running around like crazy. Seafood tower was disappointing. The had lobster was tiny and virtually empty. It was 3 bites. I’m not sure why they hollowed out the body before serving?? The food is always good here and I’ll go back but hire more waiters and give more value to this tower.
Worth the experience
Incredible Food & Maritime experience, absolutely loved it
If you are interested n the mood to partake in some delicious seafood, you would be hard pressed to find a better venue.
Great oysters and halibut!!
Excellent service and great food!
Really nice patio but service was very slow. Food was good but not worth the price. There was also a couple beside us who were both extremely drunk (even for halifax), yelling at cars passing by, and none of the staff said anything. I wouldn't recommend based on our experience.
Best happy hour downtown
Outstanding Happy Hour!
Great patio, server was a bit slow around happy hour but otherwise a great experience.
Great food, service, value and ambience! Classiest patio in the city!
It was my first time at Shuck, and I loved the variety of fresh seafood! The oysters were incredible - Very fresh and clean tasting, and the seasoning options were nice too. I got the seafood boil, and I would have loved there to be more seasoning or flavour to the sauce/liquid that the boil came in. Maybe even a dipping sauce? My partner had the fish and chips, and it was very well cooked and a generous serving.

Service was excellent
Food was average. Wine selection was poor
For the money not worth the experience
Wonderful meal. Say outside so a little noisy near the street but was nice to be part of a lively atmosphere
Really nice people watching patio
Great selection of oysters. Friendly staff. Nice ambiance
Great place to go for date night on a nice summer evening! Great ambiance and fresh seafood! We had a great evening there last night celebrating my birthday!
Hi Mary, Thank you so much for you feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your experience and look forward to seeing you again soon!
As always, the food and service are incredible! My favorite place to eat in Halifax.
The staff at shuck are so kind, the food was great, and this place has the best happy hour!
Beautiful day on the patio, Happy Hour great value! Terrific food, well curated wine list! Excellent service!
The oysters were amazing. The mussels did not taste fresh. The black ink squid pasta, great. The fish and chips also great. Halibut steak overcooked and dry.
Overall, the outdoor patio venue was great. Our waitress was very sweet. Just disappointed in some of the food, for the price.
Perfect patio with shade from the trees. Great service and awesome cocktails. Can’t wait to return
Dylan was an unreal server and the drinks were amazing. Get the margarita!
Great food, service. Always a great place to visit.
What an amazing experience we had at Shuck! Jenna and Rebecca took such great care of us all evening with their genuine and knowledgeable hospitality. We definitely will be back for more oysters!

What a wonderful first experience at Shucks. The Raw appetizers were delicious and the fish and chips were tasty. Service was excellent. Definitely will return this restaurant and share with friends how wonderful it is.
Hello Betty Jean & Raymond, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed your experience with us and can't wait to see you again!!
We were looking forward to eating at Shuck for a long time. We ended up only sharing the Petit Tower and then decided we would prefer any other place. The snow crab was soggy, the oysters were tiny and the the rest of the food was okay. The food did not reflect the price or what we expected. The biggest disappointment we’ve had in a long time.
Hello Sara, I'm very sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. Your feedback is very much appreciated and I can assure you it is taken very seriously. Please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com and hopefully we can find a way to make it up to you.
We went for the Dine Around Dinner.
Totally enjoyed the meal.
Looking forward to returning for another great dining experience.
I had really high expectations for shuck and was pretty disappointed, as were the 8 others I was with. Our server was so nice and sweet but was probably overwhelmed with a table of 9 and what was going on behind the scenes. 3 of our gnocchi’s tasted like mold but we were told it was an aged cheddar, but that wasn’t listed on the menu, nor did it taste anything like an aged cheese. Mistakes happen and that was totally ok but I felt more could have been done to make things better. I’m sure there was miscommunication on both ends but pretty disappointed I picked this spot for my birthday!
Hello, We're very sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. We understand you did not enjoy the gnocchi so we removed them from your bill and offered to replace them with something else. We didn't want anyone to leave hungry and we tried to offer whatever dishes we could to fix your meal. We removed additional items from your bill to apologize for any inconvenience. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is anything I can do to fix your experience.
Good food, service and ambience. For happy hour we had the shucked oysters, calamari and seafood chowder .
We had a lovely time at Shuck. We had our 2 year old son with us and everyone was very patient and kind with us considering we had the little one.
Food was good and the service was great!
Who does not Love Happy Hour?? Half price oysters. So yummy So Fresh.
Amazing oysters and great wine! I will definitely be back for a happy hour again soon!
Hi Maddison, Thank you so much for your kind words. We're so happy you enjoyed your experience with us and look forward to seeing you again soon!
The menu didn't seem to match the experience - overall the three of us found this to be one of our least favourite dining experiences. Service was rushed - although a bit understandable given the restrictions. But overall not enjoyable.
Food was ok - drinks and ambiance were nice. One guest had dine around and the dessert was returned as it wasn't set and crust way over cooked. Would have thought for a seafood restaurant there would have been more seafood entree versus burgers and deep fried fish and chips.
We had a lovely meal with great service. We split the small seafood tower as our appetizer and it was great.
Shuck is good food and surprisingly good value - especially given the comparison to its sister restaurant Cut, which is expensive and unspectacular.
We were very disappointed in this place! We ate here a couple years ago and had such a great time so we decided to try it for the dine around and what a completely different experience! The food was not great at all, they served a haddock that was suppose to have goat cheese and I never tasted a lick of any goat cheese which is what sold our table on it! The portion sizes were severely skimpy, Glass of wine was more like a shot in a glass, it just all-around felt like we were being gypped on every thing we ordered! And they only had one option for their dessert which I would recommend them changing and completely taking it off the menu their lemon tart not only was hard as rocks but for dessert it definitely was not tasty! I’m used to fine dining enjoy a nice meal but this was far from enjoyable! This is the first time in life I wrote a review on a restaurant so this has to tell you something! The service, Well the waitress did say she was new but her mentor or the other lady she ran to didn’t seem to have much of a personality or helpful!
So I’ll leave it at that! Unfortunately we took another couple with us which made it even worse because there expectation‘s we delivered to them we’re not met, Im sorry to say that we will not be returning here!
Service was amazing. Food was quick and hot and very well presented. We enjoyed the food very much. Would recommend.
Hello Dan, Thank you so much for your positive review. We are so happy you enjoyed your experience on Valentine's Day and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Owen was a great server, very friendly & enthusiastic. Oysters were delicious & extremely fresh. We had the Valentine’s set menu, everything was cooked perfectly, hot, and delicious.
