Oyster Shooter Contest

Since Oyster Fest began in 2015, we have worked to make it an unforgettable event. This year, we partnered with Sweetwater Brewing, Rappahannock Oyster Co., and the Surfrider Foundation to bring you a month-long extravaganza! We also challenged each Shuckin’ Shack location to an Oyster Shooter Contest. Each location faced the challenge of developing a recipe and name for a new oyster shooter that would be highlighted during Oyster fest.

The competition was fierce. Greenville, with their Deep Blue Sea Oyster Shooter, came out on top. When asked how they did it, they responded: “We challenged our bartenders to come up with something different for the Oyster Shooter Challenge.  Aimee Taylor wanted it to be unique, yet tasty and very eye appealing. Plus, we had to come up with a suitable name for it!”

Way to go Aimee!

“Aimee has worked at Shuckin’ Shack Greenville since we opened in December of 2015! She had never tended bar and was working full time at another job. She is one of the hardest working people you will meet. Lucky for us, she decided to quit her other job and work full time at Shuckin' Shack doing what she loved and being around people”. 

If you haven’t made your way out to Shuckin' Shack Greenville yet, start planning your trip! It’s one of the larger locations, but still boasts the same great food and customer service.  Greenville’s employees help create a unique and comfortable atmosphere, allowing them to develop regular customers and make personal connections.

Something unique to the area are all of the international companies, bringing in people from around the world. Many regular customers come from France, Germany and Poland.  One Polish friend even brought in several soccer jerseys that are proudly hung in The Shack!

Owner, Margaret Marcum tells us, “We constantly get comments about the atmosphere and how much it feels like a beach restaurant, but the closest beach is over 200 miles away!” So, if you love seafood and a relaxed beach atmosphere, Shuckin’ Shack Greenville should be your next choice for lunch, dinner, or a round of drinks with friends! 

Look out for the Deep Blue Sea Oyster Shooter coming this November 6!
