This is in a food court with limited seating. Open area which can be loud. Not a traditional dining experience but the oysters and seafood chowder are very good. Limited parking.

I love this place. Great service, food and alcohol. Oysters are top grade and so is menu. Chowders are wonderful especially with beer menu. Sit at tables or bar. Located at Oxbow Outdoor Market.

And thank me later. It was the best thing that I ate the whole week I was in Napa. The fact that the locals were eating the same thing was validation for me.

Tuesday and Wednesday happy hour - 5-7pm. They choose one oyster at half price and an appy for around $8. $6 Sauvignon Blanc and $5 draft. Oysters served with some really nice bread.

I wish we had a Hog Island Oyster Bar in NYC. The restaurant was packed and yet we found two seats at the bar. The cooks are cooking right in front of you so there is a level of entertainment involved, as well as awe...More
