Sometimes, the simplest things in life are best, a premise wholeheartedly embraced by the people who run this fantastic oyster bar. In fact, they raise the oysters about an hour north of the city, and their sweet, succulent mollusks are some of the area's best. Indulge in a selection at an outdoor table, and couple awesome Bay views with a dozen Hog Island Sweetwaters or Kumamotos. Add in a glass of wine, some sake or a cold beer, and there's nothing better! Clams, clam chowder, oyster stew and salads can be had as well. If you're still hungry after you're oysters, all of the Ferry Building Marketplace is there for your tastebuds to explore.
- Waterfront Dining: "If you really love this place and want to go to the source, make time to visit the Hog Oyster Island Oyster Farm in nearby and beautiful Tomales Bay."
- Restaurants with Views: "Try their grilled cheese sandwiches, which locals rave about."
- Oyster Bars: "If you have the time, drive out to Point Reyes and eat Hog Island oysters at their source."
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: Grabbing a few oysters at Hog Island Oyster in the Ferry Building is just one of the many mouth-watering stops in that beautiful market.
- Best for Restaurants with Views Because: It's getting harder to procure local, fresh oysters, so Hog Island is worth noting.
- Best for Oyster Bars Because: Hog Island Oyster Bar has been growing in popularity but its service and quality never seem to suffer.
