The world can be your oyster at Shuckers, and I hope it will be, because oysters are what this long-established oyster bar at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel is known for. Shuckers usually has about 8 local varieties just waiting to be served on ice, and slurped down by oyster lovers like me, and maybe like you. The restaurant also serves old-fashioned baked oysters and pan-fried oysters. There is other seafood, too, of course. Every day four or five fresh fish choices are available. Shuckers, located in what was once a haberdashery shop, has been around for over 35 years and I hope it will be around for 35 more. I’m not that keen on the dark, clubby, “nautical” look of the restaurant, but all is forgiven when those icy-fresh oysters appear on the table. And note that during Happy Hour (3-5pm) oysters on the half-shell are $2 each.
