The Zagat 2005 Restaurant Survey coins Shuckers as a 'Seattle classic' that is one of the 'best seafood restaurants in town' with 'great ambiance' and 'excellent service.'
A longtime favorite. Delicious food, nice warm ambiance, great service. Also, I am allergic to candle smoke so most restaurants are ruled out. Shuckers is just fine. The air is fresh and warm.
Took a long time for the food to come and our table wasn’t awesome, but the server was a sweetheart and we had a good time.
Great Service and Fabulous food.
I would highly recommend it.
As always, wonderful service, great food and relaxed but elegant surroundings.
Christmas Early Seating - the waiter did NOT want to be there. My party of three (3) was barely tolerated. Courses were out of sequence & late. The oysters were fine to excellent. The starters & entrees were very good, once they arrived. Since it was a Holiday, I gave it more stars than deserved & the food was palatable. Will not return.
Nice restaurant. Old school style. Tables close together so be prepared to hear your neighbor's conversations. Very friendly staff.
Christmas Eve. Grilled octopus was amazing. Everything was fresh and wonderful.
Underwhelming fish and chips, slow service, excellent oysters and salads.
Great place to dine before a Seahawks or Mariners game.
SERVER TORY IS EXCEPTIONAL. THANK YOU TORY! GREAT PLACE FOR OYSTERS.
The service was as good as it possibly could be being that they needed at least two other waitstaff. Holiday season, and too few employees. Great food!
Appetizers grilled squid and oysters Rockefeller followed by Caesar salad and cup of seafood stew.
We had 3 different hors d'oeuvres for dinner with a drink apiece and everything was wonderful. Our server was the most pleasant, friendly and efficient. Had a great time.
Classic classic classic. I can’t find places like this anymore!
Just great! Hadn't been there in several years. Enjoyed it a lot! Fun time!
Absolutely loved it!!
Terrific evening, always fresh n flavorful seafood. ..the ambiance is relaxed, very traditional .
Apathetic, slow service, inedible food. Horrible experience. I won't be back.
We were seated on a table by the window. Our server, Larry was very professional and accommodated our needs.
The food came in perfect timing, delicious and fresh.
Everyone enjoyed the meal of their choice. The ambience was festive with the guests enjoying holiday lunches in groups.
The manager, Xandra came a couple of times to our table making sure everything was fine.
Shuckers is always a Perfect Choice.
Seems to be not as good as previous visits. Had salmon and it was flavourless and not very good.
Great seafood Restaurant. Food and service was outstanding.
Outstanding service, delicious food, excellent wine list.
The Thai coconut mussels were fabulous, we ate this as an appetizer with bread, yummy! We also shared the delicious cheesy crab Mac n cheese, & for dessert it was a berry type cobbler ala mode which was the perfect ending
Always seafood that is truly fresh, generously portioned and well but unusually prepared. My rainbow trout was served more as a steak (like a baked salmon) but was very tasty, cooked to exactly the right temperature. Good oysters as an appetizer....Fanny Bay was my choice for that evening. Service was over the top. Really a caring and engaging server.
Oysters were the size of a nickel, my wife's salad had canned shrimp in it, and the mushrooms tasted like dirt. The waiter was a bit distant because we werent dressed in a manner where he thought he was going to be tipped well enough....he was wrong..his lose. I would never go back and will be sure to inform anyone to not waste they're time.
I made a reservation for 4 people Froday night 6:45 3 days in advance. My husband & I were staying at Fairmont Thursday & night. We actually had lunch the Friday afternoon as well with no reservation. We were given a table within 15 minutes. The lunch meal "Caroline's Corner " tribute was superb & a very good value.
Dinner was a different circumstance. We arrived 5 min early for our table. We are told table not ready so we sat at the bar to wait. The heavily tattooed hostess I found rude, dismissive, I kept & irritated at everyone. We sat at the bar and this lovely young man made our evening in the end. 30 minutes still no table. Finally tattooed girl came over and asked..."do you want to eat at the bar?. We agreed as she seemed to be telling us rather than asking. Which after scanning the room with obviously the right choice. Food & service at the bar was very good but I would be hesitant to set a reservation again with a hostess that seemed to be too heavily booking & controlling flow of customers.
Taste good! Just a little bit salty for me because I prefer less salty food.
Always excellent food and efficient, attentive service.
The food was marvelous and the service fantastic. Some of the best food I've had anywhere.
Excellent oysters and fish. Nice wine list. Friendly (but not too) server and relaxed vibe. Disappointed that there wasn’t a whole Dungeness crab.
Took my husband to Shuckers on a recent visit to Seattle. We had excellent service and the food was awesome. We will definitely be back.
Service was excellent. Food was good. Only problem was that we were seated at a table right next to bar seating so those customers would push back their bar stools just a bit and run right into our table. Would request another table next time.
Thanksgiving dinner was great. Although they offered the traditional turkey spread, we opted for fish and it was delicious. Highly recommend!
We have dined at this restaurant many times in the past for lunch and enjoyed it. This time we found the service very slow and the food very bland. Although it tends to be overpriced for dinner it probably is ok for business lunches.
Always a great meal and service, but, lacks creativity to move it up to the 5 star realm. If in Downtown worth a visit.
The oysters are best.
Fresh oysters and baked oysters are so great. I never had such a great oysters. Highly recommend. The red blend house wine and calamari fires, steamed clams also so good. It is one of my favorite restaurant in Seattle.
Terrific service and great food
Great food and service.
We had my sisters birthday dinner at Shuckers...Chris, our waiter was fabulous! Sis wanted oysters and he led us through explanations and wine pairings that were just amazing! We sat next to the window and watched Seattle go by as we celebrated the best birthday ever!!
