This is in a food court with limited seating. Open area which can be loud. Not a traditional dining experience but the oysters and seafood chowder are very good. Limited parking.

I love this place. Great service, food and alcohol. Oysters are top grade and so is menu. Chowders are wonderful especially with beer menu. Sit at tables or bar. Located at Oxbow Outdoor Market.

Yes, this place is crowded and you'll sit elbow to elbow with someone you don't know. Yes, it's a little on the expensive side. And you know what? Just come and enjoy it. Get a sampler of oysters. Get some wine. Take your time. Get a crab and get messy. Enjoy because the food is fresh and tasty. The service is great. It's only a little loud and crowded, but if you know that going into it, you'll come out having enjoyed the five star ranking too.

Great oysters and fisherman’s stew. Clams also very good. Fu place for lunch. We visit here every time we pass through Napa. Went here for lunch. Not to be missed if you like seafood and oysters.

Looked up the top restaurants in Napa and the valley and saw Hog Island rated #1 in Napa. Now it's not the French Laundry which is considered one of the best in the US, but I'd never want to eat a prix fixe French dinner even though I love Keller's simpler restaurants like Bouchon.

Hog Island is in the Oxbow Public Market, an eclectic offering of all kinds of small eateries and shops. Hog Island is marvelous for the seafood, especially the oysters and clams served casually around a bar with tables and an outside patio.

Simply put the absolute BEST clam chowder served with Manila clam shells in the bowl and spiced brilliantly with aromatic vegetables, bacon, potatoes and cream. Outstanding with a glass of Grgich Hills "Blue Beret" Chardonnay.

They have locations in Marshall, San Francisco and Humboldt.
