We had heard about this place and wanted to give it a try. We showed up and the line was ridiculous. But when there is a long line, usually there is something worth it at the end, and it was worth the wait. We had an Oyster bar mix, trying several variety of very tasty oysters on the half shell....

What a great way to meet up with a niece I hadn't seen in awhile, grab a nice glass of bubbly and a dozen assorted oysters from around the globe. All so wonderful and tasty with crusty sourdough roll accompaniment. The atmosphere is noisy and filled with tourists, if you don't mind it. I like the fact it's really alive... More

We went to Hog Island for our Anniversary lunch. We were not disappointed. Fallon was our amazing waitress who steered us in the right direction for our food and drink. We ordered the 38 degree and the Tomales Bay Oysters, the Soft Shell Crab sandwich, the fried anchovies, which were incredible and not at all fishy. I had the Hog... More

I can`t believe people line up to eat at this place. The choices are very limited. You better come full because you will leave hungry. Servings are very minute and expensive. Nothing special on the menu. Food is way overpriced.

We always enjoy the clams, which are best anywhere in San Francisco. We recently tried the fried oysters at lunch and were blown away. The best I have ever had in the U.S. Fantastic presentation on a roll.

Let me start off by stating I gave this place 5 Stars and I am not a big fan of Oysters. I really do not like them but I enjoy the sauce you slurp them with-of which is divine at Hog Island. My wife loves oysters (the smaller ones) and this is the place for freshness. The beauty of this... More

Husband and I had Po' Boy Oyster Sandwiches. Oysters were well prepared, if not the most flavorful. Service ok. Prices reasonable for the bayfront view.

This place has a great view of the bay and outdoor seating. We sat at the bar which was idea since we were indoors but still had a great view. Try the Clam Chowder...it's very different..clams are still in the shell...but very good.

Thank pamgro
