Great seafood. But no lavatory. You need to go outside and massive queues. Small bladders be warned. Otherwise just cross your legs.

We popped in here after our Alcatraz trip and we very happy with everything. We had the seafood stew which was the best we've ever had and the gormet grilled cheese. We were able to split both meals and were full when we left. We say at the bar and the beer was cold and refreshing. We did not have... More

The oysters here are really good but the value is terrible. My husband and I were starving after our tour of Alcatraz but once we sat down and saw the prices we decided to have apps here and go elsewhere for our main dinner. We had 6 oysters, a tiny Cesar salad (for $10--tasty but terribly priced--it fit on a... More

Enjoyed a kid free wkd in SanFran and we loved our lunch here! Very fresh fish, delicious oysters and clam chowder full of clams still in their shell. The waitstaff will split the clam chowder for you and it's still a huge portion even when sharing. Bar also has good beers on tap. Go at 11:30 for lunch so you... More

In SF for business and staying across the street at the Hyatt. Found Hog Island Oyster bar just walking through the Ferry building. Had tables out side because it was chilly but there was an hour wait inside. So we sat outside. They have European style seating for many tables where it is a long table and they seat your... More

Best oysters I've ever had!!! I love the Ferry Building this establishment is a part of. The drinks were great, everything was very fresh. Next time I'm in town I will visit again & this time I will be sitting at the oyster bar and watch then shuck away!

This was on our check list of places to eat while visiting the area. Glad we did. Great food. Great staff. Great oysters and drinks. The line starts outside in the back of the ferry building. Beautiful views of the SF bridge all lit up. Lights change patterns while you wait. We opted to be seated inside, so our wait... More

I stumbled upon Hog Island Oyster Company while enjoying a few free hours wandering around the Pier area during a business trip to San Francisco.. This place is a gem - great food, awesome service and a very cool vibe. It's not always fun to eat out alone but I travel almost every week and have learned that you can... More

Love the opportunity to enjoy fresh local oysters in the middle of San Francisco. Personnel are young and energetic and food is great. Cost is fair and there is always a crowd.
