Shuckers Lobster & Clam Bar is back for the season. The restaurant in Hampton Bays, located at The Beach Bar, hosted their grand reopening this past week. The restaurant, run by Patrick McCormack and Chef Brian Mazzio, is a seafood lovers dream. The menu includes a dish called "The Mother Shucker" which includes two lobsters, mussels, clams, shrimp skewers, a half loaf of bread and corn.

The menu at Shuckers has grown since last summer, while keeping the same great deals. My friend and I started off with a few appetizers. The sesame teriyaki marinade tuna tidbits with spiced pineapple sauce was delicious, as was the lobster spinach dip with house fried tortilla chips. Please note that all of the dishes that include lobster - and there are many - have very generous portions.
For our entrees we decided on the lobster and wild mushroom risotto and a salad with heirloom grape tomatoes and fresh mozzarella over arugula and mixed greens with basil pesto and an aged balsamic reduction. Both dishes were outstanding.
Along with our meal, a few specialty cocktails, we recommend the Ponquogue punch which includes light and dark rum combined with pineapple, orange and cranberry juices.
The restaurant also offers a variety of items including soup, a raw bar, quesadillas, tacos, nachos, sandwiches, wraps, sliders, and a kids menu.
Shuckers is open Thursday through Sunday. Don't miss the "Shuckers Special" all night on Thursday and from 2 to 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday where lobster dishes are just $19.95.
