It's not easy to write a review of this Oyster Bar/restaurant. It's everything they say and more. Don't come to Napa without stopping here. Oyster Rockefeller was so wonderfully prepared..but you have to try the Clam Chowder, let's just say you'll never have chowder like this again..the best... read more

As expected, the oysters and clams were excellent. We had both raw and cooked oysters. Among the raw oysters I like the Kumamoto best. As for the grilled oysters we ordered the rockefeller and horseradish and both were excellent. The clam chowder was also very good with whole clams in their shells. All in all, a wonderful luncheon experience.

We came here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. We had lunch on the first visit and sat at the bar. We ordered what ever oysters that were available that and devoured them...fresh and tasty! We also order the grilled oysters that had worcestershire sauce, garlic, butter, salt, & pepper...so incredibly good we wanted a whole platter. We... More

A must go and must taste when you are in Napa or San Francisco. The wait (45 min) was doable when you think of how those oysters are going to taste. Another must try is the chowder. Enjoy

Busy, vibrant bar style oyster eating Mecca. If you want to buy some oysters to go to eat at home or barbecue, it can usually be arranged with early warning. Locals love it, and it's a hot spot for tourists too.

Loved the oysters with the cilantro rice vinegar dipping sauce. The grilled cheese we dipped into our clam chowder was incredible. Great stop. Enjoy your meal👍

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.
