When I arrived there was a wait. The hostess was a bit short when asked questions. I was seated at the bar and there was one server for I am guessing 15+ seats. It was about 5 to 7 min to even be greeted but I could see she was really slammed. It was cold so I ordered the gumbo... More

Great place to eat. Solid service, good food - particularly the oysters - good everything but one thing: seating. This is a pretty small place. During rush hour, you'll be hard pressed to get a seat for a party larger than two. There has usually been a wait - though not a particularly long one. But good places crowd up.

There was a queue when we arrived and when we left (it moved relatively quickly and you could have a beer whilst you waited), which just goes to show how popular this place is, and with good reason. Lovely location overlooking the Bay Bridge, which is great when it lights up at night. Sitting outside not a problem as very... More

loved the oyster po'boy that is accompanied by home-made pickles and their fresh oysters are always sublime. A must visit when in the area!

A nice fish restaurant on the waterfront. Good choice of oysters from the pacific. Very different taste, don't expect too much iode ! Wine and cocktails are also good. Quite crowded though, expect some queuing.

I love this place. Fresh variety of oysters and craft beers, convenient location, and a great view. The fish stew and sourdough bread are fantastic. However, if you are expecting a nice variety of California wines to sample, the list is extremely limited.

This place is right in the heart of the fishermans wharf market. I had the chowder it was so gorgeous that I nearly go another bowl. It's so fresh. You can sit outside and in. Bit of a wait but it's worth it. The food is wonderful and the service is great. I was so hungry when i walked in... More

I had the grilled cheese and fries which were both very good. Service was quick, a large line waiting to be seated but they went through the line very quickly. I sat at the bar by the kitchen and enjoyed watching the chefs at work.

This place is delish! It was very busy when we were there. There's many oysters to choose from and many other seafood dishes available. Try their take on sangria, it's got some really interesting flavours.

We stopped in for a small bite after a long flight. The local wine selection was great and the oysters were delicious. Great warm sourdough as well. Busy spot but worth the wait.
