Buck-a-Shuck Monday Kicks Off at Doc Magrogan’s Tonight

Given that yesterday was National Oyster Day, I popped over to the just opened University City outpost of Doc Magrogan’s to enjoy some bivalves and cocktails. (And the smoked fish dip and grilled mahi-mahi). Bartender Brian gave me the heads up that today is the first of Doc’s weekly Buck-a-Shuck Mondays, with a few varieties of oyster priced at just a dollar — not just during happy hour, but all night. Today’s buck-a-shuck selections: Sewansecott, James River and Delaware Bay.

    It’s amazing that as this blog brings in “professional” editors and journalists the basics are going down the toilet. No address?

    Kbor, West Chester?

    Clearly, the tag say ‘Cheap Seafood in PHILADELPHIA’ and ‘UNIVERSITY CITY’. Not very hard to google Doc Magrogan’s and see that there’s a Philadelphia location…

    As much as I hate to admit it, Barryg is correct. I accidentally omitted a link. Added.

    Is this place any good? I mean is it closer to Oyster House or is it like Chickie and Pete’s or DiNardo’s? If anyone has any experience i would like to know.

  • Victor Fiorillo

    It’s more of an Oyster House kinda place. I wouldn’t equate Doc’s to OH, but it’s definitely a different menu/vibe than a Chickie’s & Pete’s.

    I’m annoyed that their on-line menu doesn’t include prices, is that a thing now? Even Stephen Starr lets you see menu prices,

    Not good, don’t waste your time. Decently fresh-enough seafood prepared by what seems like high school level talent for cooks. Bland preparation, boring sides. This guy stamps out pre-fabricated restaurants that are destined to become mediocre small-time chains from day one. Sad to see one of these open on an otherwise charming street in U City.
