Every year on my annual visit to SF we go here. Their wine and beer list are remarkable. Of course, the oysters are great. The fried polenta was AMAZING.

Fresh food served. Oysters were great. The clam chowder was great. Definitely different as it actually had the clams with shells and all but the broth was amazing. I watch them make some salads and they looks great. Good find.

We had been told about the ferry pier which is a little out of the way from fisherman's wharf. Well worth the walk. Terrific oysters and clam chowder. Grilled oysters with chilli butter were the best. Service was attentive and added to the enjoyment. 2...More

Clam chowder was very creamy and tasty. Great location by the water front. We went on a Monday about 5pm for a quick bite after a long flight. No queue at that time. Great place for a quick bite.
