Nautical Nellies Steak & Seafood House – Victoria, BC

This is Part 5 of our Victoria Food Adventures!  Check out the rest here!

I always try to scope out a buck-a-shuck Happy Hour menu when we travel.  For our Victoria trip I found Nautical Nellies Steak & Seafood House which is right by the water.  Their Happy Hour menu is from 3pm-5:30pm everyday!

Nautical Nellies has more of a old-school steakhouse vibe.  There’s dark wood everywhere and an overall darker ambiance.  There’s even a fish tank in the dining room!

A selection of their cocktails during Happy Hour were only $6.50.  I had a Long Island Iced Tea while AngryRussian had their Moscow Mule.

The drinks were delicious and refreshing and hit the spot.

The Buck-a-Shuck Oysters were chef’s choice, and there was a limit to 1 dozen per person.  The way around that?  Be in a relationship with someone that doesn’t eat oysters 😅 

Here the oysters were not accompanied with the usual mignonette.  Instead, it came with horseradish cocktail sauce, and a creamy looking sauce.  I wasn’t interested so I just used the lemon and a bit of the horseradish cocktail sauce.

The oysters were briny like the sea!  Very yum!  I might’ve had 18 of them.

We also ordered their Lobster & Shrimp Potato Skins ($12).  It came with a chutney type dip and also sour cream.

These were cheesy and had a good amount of filling, although it was hard to discern the lobster and shrimp.  But that’s to be expected.  They were average but a good snack.

Last but not least was the Cajun Popcorn Shrimp ($9).  They were such a cute size and the batter was crispy and clean tasting, and was lightly seasoned with cajun seasoning.  The dip also had some of the same spices and made for a refreshing touch to a crispy snack.

My favorites were definitely the oysters, everything else was just extras for me.  I would definitely come back for the buck-a-shuck and cheap drinks!  Yay for Happy Hour!
