Hog Island Oyster Company


1 Ferry Building,
San Francisco,
United States,

Since 1983, Hog Island Oyster Company has built a reputation for harvesting oysters from Tomales Bay in adjacent Marin County. This small eatery, located on the north side of the Ferry Building, only serves in-season oysters (and clams), so there may be Sweetwaters, Atlantics, or Kumamotos. Oysters come in sets of 6, 12, or 24, and are prepared steamed, raw, stewed, or baked. Daily specials vary, as well, and may include black cod with roasted red potatoes, asparagus, and Romesco. Snag a seat at the L-shaped raw bar or settle into a table for a view of the ferries and the Bay Bridge.
