Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar to open in Salisbury

Published 12:00 am Saturday, January 30, 2016

Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar, coming soon to Historic Salisbury, will provide locals and tourists a new dining option.

Founded in Carolina Beach, N.C., Shuckin’ Shack grew out of a vision for a local establishment that would appeal to families of all ages. A place where friends and family can enjoy a great meal of primarily oysters and fresh seafood.

Since that day in 2007, many people have passed in and out of the restaurant’s doors enjoying succulent local oysters and shrimp, sharing local fishing or surfing stories and spending time just talking about the friendly beach comber atmosphere inside. The casual atmosphere with its friendly and helpful staff has made many patrons feel very much at home, and that’s what the restaurant hopes to bring to Historic Salisbury.

“We as a corporation are thrilled to be expanding into Historic Salisbury, a place that is ripe for our brand and our style of business while keeping the integrity of the history,” Jonathan Weathington, CEO, said.

Shuckin’ Shack serves a full menu that includes a generous selection of appetizers such as Wild American shrimp, oysters drizzled with a delicious spicy Sharkbite Sauce and Cold Crab Dip served with toasted garlic bread. Among the main seafood plates are steamed oysters, lobster, Wild American shrimp, snow crab legs, clams and mussels. The restaurant also serves seafood platters, sliders and fish tacos.

They also have a wide drink selection, with drinks like draft beers on tap, wine by the glass and signature drinks.

The decor at Shuckin’ Shack will be fun and will very much compliment the atmosphere and feel of the restaurant. Highlights will include a pallet wall, surfboards and a shark hanging from the ceiling, custom bar with pictures of local history, metal bucket light fixtures and perfect views of sporting events from every seat in the house.

Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar will be located at 118 North Main St. To keep up to date on the progress, please like their Facebook page or visit
