Wow you have to eat here

The view is spectacular but the food and the staff are even more impressive. If you are in SF please don't miss the experience of eating here.

You can enjoy a view of bridge/water while enjoying oyster and seafood in a lively restaurant. Touristy, but service is good enough and oysters are fresh.

Had lunch at HIOC after being told by my daughters that it was an awesome place. They were right! It is. We had a simple lunch of a selection of different types of oysters prepared in a variety of ways. The wait in line to get in was not very long at all and gives you a chance to go... More

Had lunch here with the wife and we ordered 6 oysters and a bowl of chowder. Both were excellent. The service was very good and the view is awesome. I would recommend sitting at the bar if you able so you can watch them prepare the oysters and see the view of the Bay Bridge.

After a long walk along the waterfront, ended up in Embarcadero and at Hog Island. Really liked the whole Ferry Building development - new since my last visit to SF 20 years ago. Good buzz - felt like a Friday crowd and only Wednesday. Wife and I both had Bouillabaise - very good and full of sea food, for a... More

This is probably our fifth time here and it's due for a review. However, nothing that I write hasn't already been written. We had clam chowder, grilled cheese sandwich, fried oysters & waffle, and an extra serving of fried oysters. It was excellent. Got here just as they were about to open on Sunday and we got first sitting. Opt... More

Always a must when in the city. They always have a great selection of oysters. Staff are knowledgeable are eager too help you decide the perfect oyster to suit your taste. A bit expensive but it's a treat.

Have been here previously, and I am a huge fan of good oysters. Hog Island never fails to exceed all expectations! The oysters are just so fresh and well shucked. The Hog Wash (their versions of a mignonette type sauce) is perfect for the briney pacific oysters. Can't beat the location, right on the Bay.

We stopped here after a ferry ride to Sauce lit. The place was very busy, found a great spot at the bar. I had grilled oysters and freshly baked bread, the wine was delicious. It was a bit pricey but a place to have fresh oysters
