Ratings & Reviews - Chewie's Steam & Oyster Bar

We seemed to have received a server that kept forgetting we were in his section. Half the order would come and then we would have to flag him down to get the rest. Not sure that we will be back although the food was good. Limited selections for the oysters considering they advertise as an oyster bar.

Was not particularly busy that day and the food took 40 minutes. Server could have come and said sorry for delay or something to calm me down a bit.We were starving. Food was tasty though!

I went with my husband for valentine's dinner..the atmosphere is good they had an amazing choice of music that we really enjoyed waiting for put food they brought our drinks in right away. It took them a while in bringing out our main course and for that they comped our whole bill..that's the courtesy that I would love for other places to have..their food was good I ordered chicken and my husband ordered cod..it was a good experience..I would definitely recommend this place..

Our evening was wonderful and we all were pleasantly surprised with how friendly and attentive the staff were throughout our stay. Great atmosphere and vibe and this was early on a Wednesday evening. The food was great and we are already talking about when we might be able to visit again. Keep up the great work!

First time at this restaurant. Amazing food and very friendly waiter. We did find the food took a very long time to arrive, but, the waiter and flavour were great. It was noisier than we expected there. We did not realize it was a bar type of atmosphere. The Christmas decor was being put up at the bar in front of customers on a Friday night and the person had their shoes on while standing on the bar. Which we found weird

WORST SERVICE IVE EVER HAD. The server barely came around and the restaurant was dead. I work in the service industry so I always have compassion for servers who are way too far stretched and trying their best but this server was just watching the football playing on the TVs. Halfway through our night, a new server started helping us out because our server was nowhere to be seen. Won't be going back again.

We always enjoy Chewies in Kitsilano. There is a lovely outdoor deck in the warm weather. The food is very good, especially the “buck and a half a shuck” oysters during happy hour. Service is friendly.

The service here was amazing. Our server was the best combination of funny, attentive and personable. It was our first time at this place and the happy hour was well worth it. (Ordered the chicken skins, smoked lobster pate, and mussels from the happy hour menu and the nicoise salad with tuna.) All the dishes were tasty and filling between the two of us. We'll be back.

I don't know that the restaurant ever got our reservation as the hostess told us a different number than what I'd entered in the reservation site. Great food and Andy was a good waiter but I wasn't impressed with communication between bookenda and the restaurant.

Best of Vancouver’s southern cuisine

In summertime, this spacious bistro and sustainable oyster bar is filled with happy chatting patrons and fresh sea air that wafts in from nearby Kits Point. After a day of sunbathing, bask in the light from the many windows while enjoying Creole lunches, brunches and dinners. Happy hour offerings include $5 glasses of wine and beer with small eats like crab cakes or hush puppies, plus “buck-a-shuck” oysters: $1 oysters fresh from the sea and shucked before your very eyes.

Vancouver’s best oyster joints

Okay, so not only does this place serve some good schucks, they also serve Southern food – a cuisine that is criminally underserved in Vancouver. Expect top-cuts of meat and fall-off-the-bone-BBQ along with other New Orleans favorites such as jambalaya, gumbo and bouillabaisse. You can’t go wrong when pairing this amazing food and with fresh oysters (oh, and buck a shuck goes down daily from 3:00 to 6:00 pm!).
