Truly enjoyed the oysters (kushi and capital) and the clam chowder. The poki wasn't great and didn't taste all that fresh. Service was fine.

This is another great restaurant for seafood. I go there for lunch on a clear day, with a few bills in my pocket. On a clear and warm day, we sit on the patio, looking at the bay bridge, smelling the ocean and devouring oysters and oysters all washed down with a nice bottle of Sancerre blanc.

I love Hog Island. There is an incredible view of the ocean along with a great selection of east and west coast oysters which pair well with their wines.

Went for an early dinner here. Had the rustic seafood stew which was wonderful and jammed full of all sorts of goodies. including a couple of welcome slices of acme bread to sop up the stock. My honey had oysters and mussels and fries...and smiled happily through the whole experience. The wait staff was professional. And we had a great... More

You can wait in a long line or try to talk out a seat at the very small bar. Bartenders will treat you right with drinks and service. Great menu of raw bar items including a wide selection of oysters from across the US. They even have some wine on tap. Great local brews on tap as well. You can... More

Nice seafood restaurant located in the historic Ferry Building on the waterfront. Had lunch and even though it was busy, our party was served relatively quickly. I was extremely pleased with the freshness and preparation of the dishes. Salmon sashimi was great! Fabulous selection of fresh oysters! :) They also have great cocktails and a good selection of local brews.... More

My son and I stopped at the Ferry Building before heading to the airport for a red eye back to CT. The line seemed long, but moved quickly - especially for twosomes. The wind off the Bay was a little chilly, so Chowder seemed in order. Tremendous flavor and a hearty portion. My son had Steamers with some local pasta.... More
