Amazing Clam Chowder

My wife and I stopped at the Napa location for a light lunch during a day of wine tasting. My wife ordered the oyster stew and I ordered two oysters on the half shell and the clam chowder. The oyster stew was just amazing. Nice fresh ingredients , rich but not overpowering. Very well made and full... read more

We had a great lunch here. Splitting 2 dozen oysters and a shrimp cake sandwich. Everything was fresh and delicious. The oysters were shucked right in front of us, extremely quickly and VERY cleanly. The shrimp cake sandwich was amazing- very little filler and perfectly cooked. Served with a slightly spicy Thai chili sauce it was a highlight we weren't... More

Menu not much to choose from. The waiter did even gave us bread and butter while the rest of the people in our communal table did! He didnt even gave us a plate. Disappointed with the service.

if you love oysters this is the place. Not only do they sell their own raised oysters, they purchase from all over the US. And they do carry east coast oysters from Island Creek

Not much to choose from, but what we had was really good. Wish they had more grilled options. Salad was really good. So was the Mac and cheese.

Hog Island had the best oyster selection of the restaurants we tried in the Napa Valley. The restaurant is casual with indoor and outdoor seating. It is located among other restaurants and shops in a building outside the town of Napa. We enjoyed the crisp, salty taste of the various oysters paired with a good selection of California whites.

We drove to Napa for the day just to indulge on the best oysters in California. The Oxbow Market is a quaint daytime destination with a few highly rated restaurants. Hog Island is by far the best place to get the freshest seafood in Napa. We were 2 couples who only ate oysters. We had the Kumamoto oysters. They were... More

This oyster bar is enjoyably efficient in serving their delicious oysters. The wait was beautifully handled. Both the raw and the baked oysters were mouthwateringly subtle and tasty. The wine list was surprisingly non-Napa, thou.

What can we say..this place just has awesome oysters and wonderful seafood all around. Its a fun experience to sit at the bar and eat oysters and experience the crowds walking around the oxbow. If you like to shuck your own oysters and if they have extra you can pick up un-shucked oysters for $1 to shuck at home :)
