Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar

Steamed Stewed or Nude

The Chewies Crew is a loud, fun group of highly skilled shuckers & chefs proudly known as Vancouver’s experts on quality oysters, seafood and New Orleans inspired soul food.  Our menus at both locations, Chewies Kitsilano & Chewies Coal Harbour, boast a variety of seafood and traditional dishes like classic gumbo, jambalaya, southern fried chicken and local Salt Spring Island mussels cooked to order in our unique steam bars.  We pour a wide selection of award winning, locally brewed craft beers, delicious hand crafted French Quarter cocktails and wines from around the world, with special attention to BC wine makers.  The buzz and energy that fills our restaurants will leave you feeling ‘Super, Wicked, Awesome’ our three favourite words, other than ‘Steamed, Stewed or Nude’ of course.  Join us for your own personal Chewies experience just a stone’s throw away from the Pacific Ocean.

For those of you who don’t already know, Chewie is actually a person, his full name, Richard Chew.  He’s a Vancouver boy that’s been working in the service industry since his early 20’s.  His love for hospitality was immediate and working at popular restaurants, bars and nightclubs sparked the idea of owning his own place some day.  His concept was simple: serve food that he wanted to eat, at a place where he wanted to go and in 2011, ‘Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar’ opened its doors near Kitsilano Beach.  It was an instant hit and as he says, “We literally hit the ground running and haven’t stopped since”.  What was once only a dream is now a thriving business with 2 exciting locations with long time friends and business partners, Mel and Jamie Haddad.  Everyone’s hard work and determination paid off, both Chewies Kits and Chewies Coal Harbour are now famous in Vancouver for their lively happy hour, southern fried chicken, and fresh raw oysters.  As their saying goes, SUPER WICKED AWESOME!
