After paying $2.50 To $3.25 per oyster all over the Northwest it was a real pleasure to enjoy Ferris's "buck a shuck" happy hour. Their other food and service was also great. Eat downstairs on Patio or enjoy a fuller menu in upstairs dining room.

They serve octopus, clams and mussels, but did not see scallops. I believe that try to get all of their seafood locally sourced. Try the octopus, it looked wonderful!
