Relish Gastropub and Bar has buck-a-shuck oysters from 3 -6PM everyday, plus $3 beer specials. This really enticed KoreanGirl, Mandu and I to dine here.
I’ve been here several years ago and it has changed a lot! It use to be really large and was always packed for dinner. I also remembered they had some pretty awesome food back then too. I always wanted to make a return trip and now was the chance to do so over some oysters with the girls.
Their beer/wine specials are listed on a big chalkboard.
Bottle of Moosehead ($3) tasted good and it had a light and crisp taste.
Buck-a-Shuck Oysters ($1 each) were very tiny! Mandu had a look of terror on her face as it arrived.
They were also not shucked very well as there were bits of shell inside.
There are also a few vinaigrette sauces you can put on top.
Overall, the experience was quite poor. I would never return again for the oysters. I would go chill and relax with some beer, but I would never order oysters again. They were also very understaffed. Our host, server, and oyster shucker was the same person. We did have to wait for a long time for it to arrive too.
If you are looking for buck-a-shuck oysters in Vancouver, there are tons of other alternative places to go to.
Words of Wisdom:
- $3 daily beer specials
- Daily wine specials
- Loungy atmosphere
- Do not order the oysters
