Visited the place for clams and they did not disappoint. We sat near the chef so all the action was close. Each dish is prepared when ordered. Everything is fresh. Your MUST have the clam chowder, it’s one of a kind.

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.

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...More

Recently I read that Hog Island Oyster Company had "the best clam chowder" in California. Well, I live in Napa and had never dined there before. Of course, I've been in Oxbow Market (where it's located) many, many times before and knew of its presence....More
