The oysters were really good, got the mixed variety of 12 oysters for $38, Gumbo was $19.00 and a bowl of brothy mussels with chorizo was $24.00. They give free bread and butter though! :)

A restaurant that boasts oysters in their name better be good...and they are..succulent, ice cold, and briny. The mixed assortment is my favorite offering different tastes. Great location on the pier, very busy doing the dinner hours, but good customer flow. Highly recommend.

Busy place, but the wait for seating went very quickly. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. I loved the raw oysters and they had the best clam chowder I have ever had. Great views of the SF Bay.

We stopped by here about 630pm Saturday and waited in line to be seated for nearly an hour. Lots of large groups dining here. Oysters are a bit pricy, Chelsea Gem Washington $33 dozen and Kumamoto $38 dozen. We finished with a bowl of their...More
