Merchant's Oyster Bar

Copy Link
There's a relaxed neighbourhood vibe at Merchants and every Sunday and Tuesday you can dig into $1 oysters to your heart's content. They also have $1.50 specials most other days of the week and a buck-a-shuck brunch from 1030a.m.-2.30p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Oyster Express

Copy Link
Tucked away in Chinatown and boasting a great rep for cheerful service, OX's Buck-a-Shucks are as plentiful as their oyster variety. Tuesdays 3-10p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday 3-6p.m.

Cork & Fin

Copy Link
Every Monday you can get shucked all night long for just $1 per oyster at this Gastown gem. Plenty of $1.50 deals for the rest of the week too.

Chewie's Steam and Oyster Bar

Copy Link
The mostly male team of shuckers at Chewies know exactly what they're doing; steamed, stewed or nude. Go neighbourhood-style at the original in Kitsilano (2201 West 1st) or their new Coal Harbour location for the Monday-Friday Buck-a-shuck deals from 3-6p.m.

Coast Restaurant

Copy Link
A gloriously over-the-top circular raw bar in a showy 'let's get dressed up' room, COAST offer buck-a-shuck every day from 3-6p.m. The perfect cheap-but-sexy date venue.

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House

Copy Link
Excellent service and a fun buzz in this busy room - and if it's summer then Joe's roof is the ideal place to lose a few hours. Daily Buck-a-shuck as well as 50% off bar items and $5 wine from 4-6 pm everyday (yes, including weekends) make this a solid choice.

Cibo Trattoria

Copy Link
Decisions, decisions. Slip off to enjoy Lauren Mote's fabulous cocktails in Uva or stay in Cibo for their daily buck-a-shuck from 12-6p.m.

Relish Gastropub & Bar

Copy Link
Tucked away between Hornby and Howe on Nelson street, the daily 3-6p.m. buck a shuck deals make Relish well-worth seeking out.

The Fish Shack

Copy Link
Hook it and cook it is the motto here, or in the case of the oyster, just plain shuck it. Daily buck-a-shuck from opening (Mon – Friday 11:30am, Saturday & Sunday 10:30am) till 6p.m.

Rodney's Oyster House

Copy Link
Hmm, Yaletown Rodney's or Gastown Rodney's? A quick strawpoll suggests the shuckers at Yaletown are 'more fun', so head there for 'low tide' buck-a-shuck deals from 3-6p.m. Monday-Saturday.

Ebisu on Broadway

Copy Link
Worth checking the website for some absolutely excellent deals at all Ebisu locations but the best oyster deals are to be found at the Broadway branch; just 99c for Royal Miyagi when you order 6 or more from 8.30p.m. till last call seven days a week.

The August Jack

Copy Link
Friendly neighbourhood Kitsilano tapas joint with a regular Sunday buck-a-shuck deal from opening (5p.m.) till they close - or run out.
