Outdoor, Relaxing Venue to Enjoy Fresh Oysters

Awesome, fresh as fresh can be oysters since they are pulled from the water right there. You can enjoy them with a crisp glass of Chardonnay. Can't beat the ambience.

Try their happy hour! You can't beat it. Awesome oysters, most from our wonderful Pacific Ocean. Try all the types on the menu, and you'll see what a difference there is when you taste them side by side.

This is the place I would go to in a heartbeat, without hesitation. It's not cheap but it's not bad value. The staff is great, the oysters are justifiably famous and the side of baked beans is a must.

We cannot go without visiting Hog Island at least once a month for our oyster fix. We usually get a mixed dozen and bowl of steamers or an oyster PoBoy plus a glass of a good Rose' wine. We think their oysters are the very freshest and best you can get except to head over to Marshall and pick them... More

Had lunch here one Friday. Sat outside. Some reviews said were next to Napa River, and while that may be true, no real view of anything but parking lot and construction fence. That being said, was very pleasant. Shared table with young couple and baby which was no problem. Oysters were wonderful - fresh, briny, and tasted just like the... More

We enjoyed a selection of six different oysters. They were all very fresh. They tasted like they had just come from the ocean. It was amazing how different each of the types of oysters tasted.

Visited the one in Nicks Cove..which was very cool due to the location....but honestly..can not get used to $30 for a dozen oysters. All oysters places were the same... But way to much for these little suckers. We will enjoy oysters elsewhere in CA..more to the coast..and maybe during happy hour!b
