Such a unique setting for a restaurant, it should be on everyone's must try list. And the food does not disappoint either :)
Fabulous food, wonderful service. Very knowledgeable waitress who made excellent recommendations.
Excellent service, beautiful and quaint and the food was spectacular!
Excellent service, fantastic food. Beautiful ambiance.
Fantastic! Crews are amazing! Will definitely come back.
Can’t say enough about this little gem of a place. Even with the limited seating they surpass expectations. Great menu, attentive service and charming location.
Very nice under the Covid circumstances the staff was very cautious and paid attention to details.
The food was amazing and the service was outstanding!! The seating in the hotels beautiful courtyard made me feel like I was back in Europe. Highly recommend!
Wonderful service and excellent food! Every dish was delicious!
We really enjoyed our experience. Beautiful venue. The food was very nice.
However, we are in the wine country and the wine list was weak to say the very least. I suggest they have a wine professional help them. We had a Matthiasson Chardonnay which was very thin and un-interesting and with all the good chardonnay's out there!! I would suggest they ditch the foriegn wines and replace with our own lovely california choices.
I might add that we appreciated that the wines were affordable....thank you for that.
Food is expensive and small. Chips they give you were very greasy. What saved the rating was that we got there doing happy hour. We were told 1.50 for oysters. We LOVE oysters so we bought 40. Overheard manager say to the waitress when did we serve more than 2 dozen oysters than happy hour. Btw we were 2 short lol.
I ordered the steak and fries. It was warm and smallllll.. wife had mussels and clams. They were ok. I probably wont eat there again.
Had a very nice dinner. Service was solid and the food was great
This is NOT Mr. Doug Patterson's email address!
You have apparently accepted a membership for your reservation service and NOT checked/confirmed the applicants information.
exception service, beautifully presented but somewhat underwhelming taste... just lacked the punch to be first rate.
This was my third time in probably 1.5 months going to the Schuckery!! This time I brought my mom. Per usual it was the most spectacular meal!! The seafood is so fresh and delicious!! My mom was so utterly impressed and wants to go back ASAP!!!! I also must input that last time I went, they had their Fish and Chips available and it was BY FAR the best fish and chips I have ever had in my entire life. This place is my absolute favorite restaurant! Also, once again, the staff is so kind, helpful and just enjoyable to be around!!!
Nice outdoor setting and excellent meal as before the pandemic.
Great food, quality service! Can’t wait to come back!
they are doing a great job in this time of outside only dinning. Great server and good oysters during happy hour.
We we're hoping to get cocktails. But weren't able to. Very limited menu ..i suspect b c of covid
Nice service and great seafood!
Been here multiple times and are never disappointed! Will be back
Food was amazing!
My husband and I enjoyed every bit of our experience at the shuckery! Food service etc!
Everything was delicious!
Fantastic experience from beginning to end. Everything tasted wonderful and was presented well. The outdoor seating in the courtyard is comfortable and intimate. I look forward to my next meal there!
Excellent...thank you so much. Loved the oysters!
I was blown away about how amazing the food was!!! Not only was it absolutely stunning plating but the ingredients were so fresh! I have been dying to go to The Shuckery since it has opened and it did not disappoint at all! Also, HUGE shoutout to the staff and our wonderful waitress. I did not catch her name but she was so kind and helpful. 10/10!!!
An outstanding experience. The food was great, our server was delightful. The fact that they are fortunate to have the lovely patio setting in the hotel area rather than a makeshift outdoor eating area....we can't say enough good things.
Outside dining-tables well spaced, plants between tables
Noise on the street was VERY loud
Love this place! Feels like you are in Europe!!
Cold food, overcooked steak, inattentive service, and manager that was "too busy" to deal with the issues. Overall a horrible experience.
I'm the owner, and I heard about your experience :( I could go into detail about all the things that were happening behind the scenes that lead to your experience. But at the end of the day, you didn't get the service we aim to give every guest. I love birthdays, and I too would be disappointed. I spoke with my team and we talked about ways that we could have handled our mistake better. If your willing I'd like to mail you a gift card to give us another try. Sincerely, Jazmine
Jazmine and the folks at The Shuckery have been doing an amazing job of feeding us during these crazy times. They always have, but I think now especially it's a comfort to have them taking such good care of us with their fabulous food and friendly faces. I don't know how they've managed such smooth sailing (at least from the customer perspective!) but they are seriously talented and we are so grateful to have them in our community. We've been doing their takeout/curbside service since Day 1 of the closures, and the food and service has been perfect since then. We've eaten outdoors in the beautiful courtyard twice now, and I feel like the tables are more than 6 ft apart, it's quiet, there is a separate ramp to the side so no one except servers is walking through the courtyard. The food is seriously on point as is service. We (two of us) have had the seafood plateau both times along with a couple of smaller appetizers. Highly recommend.
We ordered the lobster and salmon burger. Both were good, but not great. The bread given with the meal which was toasted was burnt on some pieces. The waiter failed to tell us about the happy hour specials, which we saw other people ordering. The outdoor seating is limited, so reservations are a must. But dining in the outdoor courtyard of the Hotel Petaluma was delightful and a wonderful idea since indoor dining is prohibited due to covid. They pipe in music and the ambience is very nice. Expect to spend over $100 for 2 people for starter, entrees, and wine.
We felt safe being out at the Shuckery! We’ve only gone out to eat 3 times since Covid started and 3 times were at the Shuckery! The food is amazing and we had the best raw oysters we’ve ever had. The service is tops and all the staff are super friendly! Going back again this Sat night!
Good place for outdoor COVID-19 dining. Most (socially distanced) tables are in the hotel courtyard, with a few on the sidewalk outside the courtyard. Both food and service very good, although the presentation of my lobster was a bit "over the top." Putting a lobster on a bed of rock salt seems just a bit too cutesy. Also, too bad they only serve beer and wine, no cocktails.
Food was delicious but service was very slow with so many servers checking in on us. Took over an hour to get food after ordering and we only got 3 fresh oysters, clam chowder and cauliflower wings.
Outstanding experience in these covid times. We were lucky to get the end table on the street, so this lessened any concerns about covid. The staff seemed very conscious of mask wearing and sanitizing. Every dish we had was excellent. Summer plum salad, oysters, clam chowder, clams and mussels and fruit galette. The service was friendly and professional, although we could have used a few more check ins from our server. Looking forward to return visit(s) hopefully in less troublesome times to enjoy the atmosphere more.
They adapted well to COVID. Individual tables outside shaded by trees and landscaping. Excellent table service given the distance from the kitchen. Nice selection of stand-bys mixed with local Cali cuisine. Will definitely return!
Consistently delicious, excellent, perfection!
Food & service were great. Outdoor seating was very comfortable. Staff was very friendly & efficient. We will definitely go back in the future.
