We decided to come here for an oyster lunch. The price ranges for the oysters are comparable to other places although their 'happy hour' offerings aren't as vast. They have a wide variety of oysters and they were delicious. Our waiter did an excellent job of answering our questions and helping us make selections. Will definitely come back again.

I love oysters and this place has all sizes and sauces, my daughter and I ate there twice. The restaurant is within the Oxbow Marketplace which is crowded with tourists and quite noisy. Fortunately, Hog Island is in a corner, so you don't have constant foot traffic near your counter seat.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and ordered some fresh oysters. They were delicious. We also got an order of the baked oysters and they were just OK. I didn't like the harissa ones. The menu is simple but delicious. I would definitely come again for lunch. My husband got beer, which he was grateful for in wine country and... More

Saw all the super high reviews here so we had to check this place out. Let me caveat with the fact that I am from New Orleans so it is tough to compete with my tastes in seafood, particularly the oysters... but we thought we'd grab a beer and see how they fare. We got a mix of the grilled... More

I couldn't get enough of my steamers in a delectable broth with sweet corn and noodles with Bouchon bread on the side! It was one of the best dishes I ever ate! Or maybe it was because I had just eaten at fussy complicated SPQR in SF. This is what Napa and Sonoma are about - simple, fresh flavors and... More

We decided to stop for an oyster lunch and it was the best idea ever. The oysters were fresh and flavorful - worth every penny (24 oysters for $66). Our waiter did a great job of explaining the different varieties. The oyster's are definitely not cheap but the quality is worth it!

Okay, it's not the French Laundry or Press, but sometimes it's nice to just have a fun dining experience that doesn't max out your credit card. Not a very large menu, but the oysters were great (had 2 dozen with my wife) and the clam chowder was a real treat. It wasn't your typical canned soup, it was real chowder... More

Surely one of the better oyster houses we have been to in years. Super service. The staff explained each of the food choices and helped us get the right beer too. We will return.

I love stopping in for oysters and a glass of bubbly. A nice selection of oysters and I select all varieties. Nice presentation and always crowded. I don't mind sitting at community table--I have always sat next to a nice group of people. I enjoy eating outside to reduce some of the noise whilst at Oxbow Public Market.
