Oyster Bar
Enjoy seafood how it’s meant to be—fresh, seasonal, playful. Join us at The Shuckery for raw oysters and a selection of artfully crafted, ocean-inspired dishes. We’re much more than an oyster bar. The Shuckery is a culinary experience that stands for warm hospitality and food that comforts and excites.

Currently, all of our seating is outdoors, and we provide a unique experience in the heart of downtown Petaluma. Our tables are nestled in the courtyard of Historic Hotel Petaluma and sprinkled on the popular sidewalk of Kentucky. Boasting a European feel, we encourage you to bring a jacket for later reservations.

    First time at your restaurant. The fried oysters were excellent. Our check was rather high. We ordered everything separate. We should have ordered the fish and chips for two $54.00 that is affordable. Is their a fried oysters as a dinner rather than only (4) over greens for one person. The bread was rather high (2) pieces in a little basket toasted which we had to order twice. My beer nonalcoholic "Brew without Compromise" first time was excellent. My husband's S/B was excellent. I believe we did not look over the menu in detail. The 6 o'clock rates were better. We are from Sonoma and have lots of friends who like oysters and fish. Our little waitress was polite and was patient with us. You will see you us again. Dick & Loretta Wicklund 707-939-0433. Hope this review helps both of us. Good luck with your restaurant and your young staff all polite and made us feel at home.

    +++ Great service, great food. We had ceviche tostadas, the bread and garlic oil for appetizers. All very good and great cocktails. Then we had a whole fish as our main dish. It was delicious and came with a salad and a side of creamy baked corn. Dessert was a goat cheese cheesecake —- Happy hour had no real deals. The wines are all organic, which makes them “sour” and not like the local wines you expect $158 for 2 before tip

    Food was unbelievable and service was impeccable. We had fried oysters and the whole fish for two. The oysters are some the best I've ever had. The fish was gigantic and cooked so perfectly that the flesh separated easily from the bones. The atmosphere is inviting and coastal. Would definitely come back. Highly recommend for anyone in the Petaluma/ Sonoma.

    We sat outside for the first time and were very pleasantly surprised by the ambiance and the quieter noise level. I almost forgot I was in Petaluma. The food was incredible, as always. The service was great, but the "my friends" greeting spoken by every server was a bit over the top.
