Just make sure to wear a mask and respect any and all safety protocol and guidelines – oh and tip well!

This past 4th of July weekend a brand new permanent food stand called Shuck Shack opened for business along the Buffalo River. The seasonal oyster restaurant, located at 301 Ohio Street in Buffalo, is basically a trailer parked in a very picturesque spot across the way and down the river from Riverworks, surrounded by a high end picnic area with tables, strung lights, and turf combining to create an actual, legit vibe. It sounds weird, but somehow it absolutely works.

According to recent Instagram posts by the New-England inspired seafood trailer, Shuck Shack is currently testing the waters with a soft opening. For the time being the hours are determined on a weekly basis. Check out @shuckshackbuffalo on Instagram weekly to find more info.
The menu consists of more than just oysters – think little neck clams, shrimp cocktail, lobster claws, a Cajun ahi tuna sandwich – that sorta thing. They even have beer and wine – solidifying the idea that this is truly more than just a food stand.

Shuck Shack takes an “ocean to table” approach with their seafood which they outline in detail on their Instagram posts and stories. One post explains that their house oyster, “Sunken Meadow Gems” will come from a farm in Massachusetts that feeds directly into the ocean where the surrounding area is a national park, untouched by man.

If you take anything away from this post, it’s that this oyster shack WILL sell out of oysters and other menu items – so don’t be surprised if it happens to you. Like a farmers market, go early. Plus, be prepared to wait for your oysters to be shucked.
Pro tip: this seasonal spot is dog friendly, yall!
