  • We went here to get oysters for lunch. The staff was very friendly and gave a great demo on how to shuck an oyster. It's hard to beat the prices -- about half of restaurant prices -- as long you don't mind eating at an outdoor picnic table.
  • Try the Buck bay oysters. Nice ladies working there
  • Awesome oysters. Awesome staff.
  • We refer to Buck Bay as the Crab Shack. The place is awesome! A great island experience for all who love crab and ousters. They provide ouster knives and all you need to eat there or take out. Good selection of fish, smoked and fresh. Local veggies too.
  • Very fresh shellfish harvested across the street in a bay. They have several varietals of oysters, steamer clams, and fresh dungeness crab. All of these may be purchased live on site. Additional fish, including smoked salmon, halibut, and cooked crab may also be purchased on property. They can sell you seafood to bring home to cook, but also offer oyster tastings on site. Previously, I had only ever tried an oyster shooter at a Seattle seafood chain, and it was not something I enjoyed. The staff at the site decided that they needed to give me a better experience, so they approached me with a freshly shucked oyster and a small lemon wedge. This oyster, while still not my favorite, was far better than my prior experience, and their desire to show me their product and let me experience what a true oyster should be really won me over. We bought a few pounds of steamer clams which we ate that day. They were tender, sand free, and had excellent flavor. Prices were reasonable and they take cash or credit cards without trouble. The site isn't a fancy location, but it was a neat experience.
