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.

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.

6. Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House

777 Thurlow St, Vancouver
BC V6E 3V5, Canada
(604) 669-1940

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.

7. Cibo Trattoria

900 Seymour St, Vancouver
BC V6B 3L9, Canada
(604) 602-9570

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.

8. Relish Gastropub & Bar

Copy Link
888 Nelson St, Vancouver
BC V6Z 2H2, Canada

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

9. The Fish Shack

Copy Link
1026 Granville St., Vancouver
BC V6Z 1L5, Canada
(604) 678-1049
Visit Website
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.

10. Rodney's Oyster House

Copy Link
1228 Hamilton St., Vancouver
BC V6B 6L2, Canada
(604) 609-0080
Visit Website
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.

11. Ebisu on Broadway

B16 - 601 W. Broadway, Vancouver
BC V5Z 4C2, Canada

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.

12. The August Jack
