Great restaurant on 4th in the Fairmont Hotel. This Shucker's is not part if a national chain. Superb service and great choice if wines including great reds from local vineyards. The variety of clams were very good and the steak frites were great. Try the blueberry/blackberry pie with sour cream ice cream. A fantastic dessert!

The restaurant is centrally located and is part of the Fairmont hotel but has its entrance on University street. The food is superb and reasonably priced. I ordered an appetizer of mussels which had 50 mussels to eat. Most definitely a platter which can be shared by four people. I actually don't remember what my wife or I had for... More

Visited on a Saturday evening. Husband had the fish and chips (halibut). Very good! I had the pan fried oysters (lightly breaded) with steak fries. So fresh and Delicious! To top it off we finished with a dessert. You can't go wrong with the blueberry/blackberry pie with sour cream vanilla ice cream. Just the right amount of sweetness. Yum!

Went my wife and me, and had a great dinner. She had fish and I had the crab paella. We were so full we could not have dessert, we did see what they served in another table and it looked incredible. Go, it's great.

Shockers somewhat appears as nonchalant from the the outside but the fresh local fish choices and tastes are wonderful! I had the wild king salmon, and it was simply grilled with nice brocollini and fingerling potatoes--yum! It will always be a fond memory of Seattle flavors. The service was outstanding. I highly recommend Shuckers for an Seattle visit!

This 1924 restaurant is across the street from the W and part of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. It's dark wood atmosphere is classic and it has a nice outside patio. The food was outstanding as was the service. And very reasonable for a downtown nice restaurant. We had wild salmon and it was great.
