    Amazing oysters. Grilled cheese was gooey and crunchy. Clam chowder is different but tasty.

    If you can only try one clam chowder while in SF make it this one! And the steamed mussels are amazing.... skip the grilled cheese and get the mussels instead!

    How can you be at the foot of Market Street and not stop in for a few Tomales Bay oysters? Unless you're ducking into The Slanted Door (also in the Ferry Building), how could you not? Read more

    Hits the spot when you crave seafood, and yes the ultimate comfort food-grilled cheese! Fresh oysters & clam chowder with the GCS is perfect to share so you have room for other goodies in the menu.👍

    A line starts to form just before they open - it's worth it to get in line 15 minutes beforehand to get an outdoor table.

    Hog Island Sweetwater > Kumamoto > Sewansecott. Clam chowder = pretty good w/ bread. Cayenne grilled oysters = pretty flavorful.

    Sweetwaters are the best. Full bodied and buttery. I'm an oyster snob too. And they're the cheapest. The bread is pretty great too.

    Oysters - fresh. Clam chowder - rich and creamy. Grilled cheese sandwich - ON POINT. My love for this place - understatement.

    You eat both oysters and grilled cheese at Hog Island! Why? Because their grilled cheese sandwich is stupid-good, featuring buttery, toasty bread, three kinds of cheesed plus house made pickles. Read more

    The Hog Island white wine is delicious. The chowder is delicate and wonderful, and the pickles that come with the grilled cheese are a revelation. Beautiful views of the bay bridge.

    You have to get there before 7:30 at least, maybe earlier on weekends, there was a line of 6 or 7 parties to get in and you have to be seated by 8 so you get served.

    They are closing down mid-January 2014 to expand. Will reopen in April. Greg has promised to keep the ambiance and food quality up to its current standards if not, dare I say, it could be even better!

    Hog Island is the epicenter for some of the best-tasting raw oysters in the world. To eat them cooked would be like turning down a supermodel’s sultry invitation back to her place. Read more

    The chowder was excellent - you'll never look at clam chowder the same way. And there's a reason every review mentions the grilled cheese - it's phenomenal.

    Get a table on the back patio, order some oysters and watch the sun go down while the Bay Lights come up.
