Little Shucker – A Bright, Modern Seafood Bar in Pacific Heights, San Francisco

Fresh seafood, cute interiors, $2 oyster happy hour, and good wine…how could you not have a good time at Little Shucker. This buzzy Pac Heights seafood spot from the team behind The Snug excels when it comes to simple, good seafood. I sampled a majority of the menu, and my favorite item was the Big Shucker, a classic chilled seafood tower that allows the quality to shine. 

If you love oyster shooters, you have to try their two creative takes – a sake tomato dashi with uni and a play on michelada with kimchi and pilsner. In addition to the tasty raw oyster selection, I also enjoyed the warm bone marrow baked oyster.

For more substantial bites, I recommend the smoked salmon tartine with bright dill cream cheese on a fluffy pan de mie. The hot lobster roll was fine, but not as memorable. I would skip adding caviar to the roll, as it got lost with the strong flavors.

My friend and I were comfortably full from the seafood feast, but we couldn’t resist trying the pretty greek yogurt tart with seasonal stone fruit – a sweet, but restrained ending to a solid meal.

I like that the smaller space, friendly staff, and menu lends itself to many occasions, whether it’s a casual lunch, early happy hour, or romantic dinner date.
