Oysters on the half shell
Half cracked crab is the best
The wait will be long, but worth it. Go an hour before they open and you should be among he first seated.
Got the variety of oysters and the chowder to go just before closing. It was delicious. Can't wait to go again.
Carpaccio. And that smoked salmon. No curb balls here, just 90mph freshness.
Anything with a shell
Anthony Bourdain gets it right.
Come during the weekday to avoid a crazy wait. You must sit inside and hang out, just once!
Oysters, sashimi style fish, weird butter crab thing (sorry have no idea what it was called), clam chowder.
Super Fresh fish and seafood produced localy. Eaten alive without problem. If you prefer something cooked - there is too (but not too much).
open for lunch only great old school spot
Just get some fresh oysters because oh my gosh they are so fresh.
Great for seafood snack
Don't let be line out front intimidate you. It's worth it. Everything's great here, but the oysters are my fav.
This place is awesome on so many levels!
Get their crab fat and Uni in shell 🇺🇸❤️
Shigoku oysters are the best!
Not big on oysters? The smoked salmon is so fresh and so well balanced with capers and chopped onions that you'll forget you're not in a Jewish deli in the Lower East side.
Get here early or else the lines can take a long time. The restaurant only has 20 counter seats. The crudo is amazing! Cash only.
For other vegetarians who like myself came here with friends, just chow down on the amazing bread.
7x7 recommends the Swan Special
This is the crab back. It's delicious but served cold which was a slight surprise.
Our secret! Don't tell everyone. Oops too late.
Very limited seating, cash only. Some of the freshest seafood in town. Not sure why people say it's a tourist trap -- it's very much a local's place
Just an incomparable experience. The food, the service, the one beer on tap. Worth every minute of the 2 hours we spent on line.
Probably the best oysters I have ever had
Casual, Wonderful Service and Extra Quality Ingredients
and dont skip out on the sourdough
get a half a dozen of the kumamotos and the scallops
Slightly overrated. Cash only.
Best breakfast in SF...paired with Anchor Steam on draft.
Oysters. White wine. Smoked salmon and chit chat.
First person online was 9:45
Anchor steam + oysters + chowda = 🎉🎉🎉
A trip to SF isn't complete without a stop at Swan Oyster Depot. Everything is fresh and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Don't forget to bring cash. No plastic.
Opens at 10:30 and accepts cash only. Some the freshest oysters ive ever had. Crab cocktail is big fat generous chunks of crab meat. And of course clam chowder is amazing.
