Feeling Shell Shocked

oysters on the half shell

A culinary newcomer on Castro Street, Shell Shock Oyster Bar & Grill brings freshly harvested oysters (and lots of other shellfish deliciousness) to land-locked Mountain View. Sourcing from Bay Area oyster farms and other premier purveyors, Shell Shock serves up entrees like grilled truffle butter lobster, seafood stew and pan-roasted mussels but the oysters take center stage. A separate oyster menu features a variety of raw oysters on the half shell, as well as grilled oysters and raw shooters. (Who can resist the Death Shot, a raw oyster paired with tequila, horseradish, Tabasco and salt, served in a cayenne pepper-rimmed shot glass?) And if you're not a fan of seafood, rest easy – the menu offers great options for you too, including bone-in pork chops, flank steak and grilled steak tacos. (But, trust us, it would be a shame to leave this oyster nirvana without trying at least one.)
