The Ferry Building Marketplace is filled with fun and food. We enjoyed delicious oysters sitting outside in the sun eating fresh oysters, crunchy bread and cold beer.

I don't even like raw oysters, but this place was great. Several options on the menu that are now raw oysters. Fast and friendly service. Great view. Very loud.

One of the bad things about the market in the ferry building is that it’s basically a 10 to 6 affair. Hog Island is one of the few options open at night and it’s a great one. I’ve been for both lunch and dinner. The...More

in a city with many oyster options this is by far one of the best, nothing beats eating fresh oysters looking at the bay, try the brown sugar oysters

Food was good and pleasant. The prices were a bit high but the views and flavor made up for it. Located next to the ferries that carried you to destinations for shopping and sight seeing. The bay bridge was in sight for viewing.
