Shuckers Restaurant Review: Located in the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Shuckers offers a broad range of well-prepared seafood dishes and is renowned as an oyster lover's destination. The Victorian-style room, a former men’s haberdashery shop, features an ornate carved wood bar stretching across one entire wall with fans twirling beneath pressed-tin ceilings. Bivalves come raw, smoked, pan-fried or baked, as in oysters Rockefeller. Oysters also appear in a creamy corn soup, which is a preferable starter over the lackluster chowders or so-so crab cakes. Other favorites are listed on a daily menu of fresh fish and seafood, which features the day’s fresh catches. For a taste of everything, the mixed grill plate includes halibut, a wild king salmon cake, prosciutto-wrapped prawns, and scallop and Dungeness crab mac ‘n’ cheese. Meat eaters are also considered with grilled beef tenderloin bathed in a red-wine demi-glace. For a sweet ending, try the chocolate fudge cake or coconut mud pie. The extensive wine list offers both Pacific Northwest and European varietals.
