Classy restaurant in the Fairmont Hotel. The look is wood paneled pub but it’s a very upscale seafood restaurant. The menu is pricey but the food is excellent and service is good. My wife had the seared scallops and thought they were great. I had the mixed grill on the recommendation of our waiter and it was excellent; fish, clams, shrimp and scallops all cooked perfectly. The highlight of my meal was the crab mac ‘n cheese; hot with melted cheese and lumps of crab.

The menu was full of seafood options which is exactly what we were looking for. I had the salmon which was delicious and my girlfriend had the scallops which she loved. For an appetizer we split the Oysters Rockefeller that were cooked to perfection. They weren't too greasy or cheesy and tasted great. Shuckers also has a good wine list to pair with seafood. Our waiter was on point too. All in all a very good place.

Good meal in a fancy hotel but the restaurant is more an upscale pub than a fancy place which suited us well. Oysters, scallops, rosemary cracker bread and butter, and the key lime pie were all out of this world! The Copper River Salmon was just okay.
Always a favorite
A little pricey but always a favorite. Never miss the opportunity to get to Shuckers when we're in town.
Seattle trip must have
I always enjoy lunch or dinner at Shuckers when my travels takes me to Seattle and never disappoints!
Became an oyster fan!
While waiting for our reservation, we sat at the bar. The bartender was helpful in recommending a variety of raw and baked oysters, all of which were delicious. The rest of the evening followed suit. Great waiter, delicious food, and yummy dessert.

They have a great variety of catch of the day fish. Mostly salmon or halibut. Food is great. Great wine list. Nice romantic place or place for friends and family. Excellent outside seating. Nice find. Second time here.
It's done your way.
This was actually our first time here, although we've walked by the restaurant many times over the 20 plus years we had worked in Seattle prior to retirement. We also have stayed at the Olympic several times without once considering a reservation at Shuckers.......our complete lost! I'd asked for something off the menu and our server (James or "Jim if you like") said "OK" without batting an eye. James was spot on, not overly pushy or gushing with fake sincerity. The food was superb! We had Copper River King Salmon cooked the way we've enjoyed at home. We highly recommend Shuckers for everyday dining and special occasions or theater night. Thanks for a great meal and evening. We will return!!!!!
The large oysters were incredible as was the paella. Good choice.

Fish was great but too expensive. Service was a little slow
Both Food and service were great. We really enjoyed their mixed seafood grill. Priced toward the high side. Pub type atmosphere. Centrally located in downtown area of Seattle.
Salmon was perfect!
We had the copper river salmon and steelhead. Both were perfectly grilled and with the veggies, etc. it was a satisfying meal. Well worth every penny!
Ambiance and food always top notch!
I have dined at Shucker's many times over the years, and have always found their food and beverages to be very high quality, and the service exceptional. The restaurant has a lovely classy but cosy ambiance; with welcoming, friendly and professional staff. Their seafood chowder is scrumptious! This visit was as enjoyable as ever, and I was very pleased that they honoured the requests I made via my Open Dining reservation. Try the Creamsicle dessert drink!

Went to Suckers for a 50th Birthday dinner before seeing Billy Joel. Meal was fantastic. Ahi Tuna was amazing and the wasabi was outstanding! Server (Jay) was excellent and they brought a huge piece of cake out on the house! Gave us a fabulous table at the window. Jay advised us on the best way to get to the show. Was a wonderful way to start the evening!

My go-to restaurant in Seattle for the freshest oysters and seafood, not to mention the best crab cakes. Love the accompaniments for the fish too! Great Pac Northwest wines.

This is an outstanding institution in the heart of the Fairmont hotel . Warm, gracious greeting from both the hostess and restaurant manager, who would periodically check to make sure all was good at each table. Service by Darla, was fantastic and professional. She was courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and her food recommendations were fantastic. Our meals of crab salad and popcorn shrimp, caesar salad and tea were outstanding - tasty and delicious, but most importantly, it's all about the incredible service that Darla undertook that will keep us returning time and time again. Wonderful, amazing and perfection personified experience. What a most delightful afternoon. Highly recommended.

Mother's Day in Seattle
We were in Seattle for the night and it was Mother's Day. I wanted to take my wife for a nice dinner, not too far from our hotel. We came to Shucker's. It had a nice, up-scale pub ambiance and was not too noisy. Our waiter was friendly, attentive and helpful. I started with the Schucker's Seafood Chowder. It was very good and loaded with seafood. My wife had the Seared Wild Scallops, and commented that they were the best scallops that she every had. I had the Seafood Paella. It include 1/4 Dungeness Crab and lots of other seafood. The rice was very tasty. I told the waiter that I was in heaven. We finished with the berry pie. It was a wonderful meal, and when I am back in Seattle I will be sure return.
The service was amazing. We solicited recommendations from our server and he knew his material. Not only was he prepared to make suggestions but he was able to very knowledgeably tell us why. The food was fantastic and its in a great location, especially if you are seeing a show downtown. The prices were a bit steep.

Great Oysters and beer flights. Can't wait to come back and bring my wife. Great ambience in an old school bar setting. Felt very welcoming and extremely warm. Somewhere you could easily eat and drink away a great day on Seattle and feel like you missed nothing.

No pearl in this oyster
We chose Shuckers at the Fairmont Olympic for two reasons: we were staying there so it was convenient but also because the reviews and menu looked promising. Service was great, oysters were fresh but an overall lack of flavour marred today's catch. The mixed grill with a side of crab Mac and cheese was mushy and flavourless- not much you can do to resuscitate overlooked pasta but the dish would have benefited from the addition of crunchy breadcrumbs and a little cheese sprinkled on top to make up for the overall lack of cheesiness. The $42.00 mixed grill, though Fresh could use a little jazzing up with even a sprinkling of fresh herbs, or even lemon. We expect more from the Fairmont and for that price a little flavour hoes a long way.
Dinner before the play at 5th Avenue Theater
The dinner was great "Scollops" X 2. Wine was great and suggested by the server along with a the great multi berry desert. Close location for 5th Ave. Theater Performance.
Shuckers is a well known Seattle downtown restaurant that captures the ambiance of the Fairmont Olympic elegance and old time charm. You get the feeling you are in the present and past and the best of both. If you are looking for a dining venue before a concert at Benaroya Hall or any other downtown venue, Shuckers is a great way to start the evening. Make a reservation on the early time of an event, enjoy the dining leisure doing so provides, and watch the vibrancy and dining excitement intensify. It is a quality dining experience that sets a great tone for the evening to come. By the way, eating there later, after the theater and concert crowds leave, makes for a fine evening experience in and of itself.
We stayed at the Fairmont Olympic for 2 nights and went to Shuckers on our first night. It was absolutely wonderful! The seafood was fresh and fantastic, lots of options and great service to go along with it! Larry especially did a wonderful job serving us. Thanks for a great experience!!
Just fair, not cheap for fair.
Order was botched and little effort to resolve. Just explained maybe there was a mid communication. That's fine not at these prices. Enough said.
Can't beat the freshness of the Oysters. Great seafood and service.
