We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch. Starting with capital oysters on the 1/2 shell. Fresh, icy cold and delicious. We had the best clam chowder we've ever had! Two of us split an order and still each of our servings was loaded with tons of...More

Long queue for lunch but as I was by myself, I managed to get a seat at the bar. Good beer, excellent sea-food, prompt reasonably polite service. Prices a little high but everyone seems to think they are worth it. Great location, looks over the...More

We had a variety of delicious oysters, fried anchovies, and a very good gumbo. Good service and nice, cold glasses of wine. A great meal.

Sit at the counter and watch your oysters being shucked. Food is fresh and tasty. Busy and lively place, open access to the market in the Ferry Building on one side and the harbour/ocean on the other.

Great spot but an expensive one. We sat at the counter and watched the oysters being shucked while looking out at the bay. Super fresh oysters. And a surprisingly good grilled cheese. Recommend.

One of my favorite SF eateries both for their food and ambience. Grilled oysters are fabulous, and the freshness and quality of their dishes are remarkable. Things can get very expensive very fast whether you are just having a beer and oysters or are there...More
