Foursquare Tips

  • A seafood store-cum-restaurant serving Taylor Shellfish Farms' own seafood specialties. Come between 2 and 4 in the afternoon on weekdays for its version of happy hour: no shucking fees!
  • Andrew Zimmern visited this unique farm, one of the world's greatest producers of geoduck. Andrew gets a tour, and he learns how to harvest these giant clams by hand. As seen on Bizarre Foods America.
  • Oysters are the pussy of the sea! Go down on it!!
  • Awesome happy hour deals! And if you've never tried guiduck (pronounced "gooey duck"), this is the place. Learn and taste everything raw - oysters to raw shrimp.
  • Tip: Service is extremely slow. Arrive about an hour before you get there to skip the wait.
  • 2-4pm HH $4 off dozen of oysters. Enjoy!! Love my shigokus!!! So good!!
  • Highly recommend this place. Very knowledgeable staff and some if the best oysters I've ever had. Try the Totten Viginica!
  • My @pandafoodie recommends any of these oysters. Pick and choose. Sit by the window and people watch too.
  • Shellfish galore.... Oysters? Crabs? You name it. High quality stuff with a nice beer selection. Make sure to stop by if you're in the Seattle area
  • Get some seafood to make at home, or ask them to shuck some oysters (or prep some crab!) to enjoy there. If you want something warm, try the chowder! We also love the DRY Soda. #ScrappyTips
  • Check out the live geoduck. So weird!
  • Tried each oyster available each was exquisite! Also, if youre curious about PNW geoduck, it is prepared excellently here. As a bonus, service was superb. Highly recommended for seafood lovers!
  • Some of the best-shucked oysters I've had in years. Really great salty/briney options too.
  • Oysters lived up to the hype - super fresh
