It’s oyster time at Shuck Shack, Jason Dady’s latest venture. The casual new seafood restaurant is at 520 E. Grayson St.
The menu features a half-dozen oysters from different spots along the Northeast coast, such as Cooks Cocktail and Cavendish Cup, both from Prince Edwards Island, Mallet from New Brunswick and Black Bear Point from Bagaduce River, Maine. Gulf oysters are also available. Or, if you prefer them cooked, you can order your orders in several styles: Texas, Casino and Rockefeller.
If you prefer soup, there’s Clam Chowder a la minute, Oyster “Chowdah” and Lobster Bisque. There are also fish and chips, salads, sandwiches and snacks you can share.
If you prefer something not from the sea, there’s a big burger, a bacon-wrapped hot dog and a “funky” grilled cheese with broccoli.
There’s also a full bar with playful drinks meant for the San Antonio summer, including a Limonaide made with Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka and a lime paleta, a caipirinha, a gin and tonic with a dash of rhubarb bitters, Trash Can Punch and a frozen Negroni pitcher.
The sign over the building is hand-painted on a piece of flotsam that Dady said washed up during the recent flood.
There’s a play area for kids and picnic tables for those who want to sit outside as well as air conditioned comfort for those who don’t.
Shuck Shack opened to the public on July 4, then took a few days off. From July 7 to 18, it will be open for dinner; thereafter, it’ll be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday-Saturday. Sunday brunch will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
