Success! Thanks for posting your review of Hog Island Oyster Company. You’ve done the world some good today.

The world is your oyster

I had my first oyster eating experience on Saturday at Hog Island and I loved it! The oysters were so fresh and delicious. The waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable about the variety of we ordered. We also ordered the steamer and clam chowder. They literally looked like the same dish. The clam chowder was more like clams in a broth than a traditional soup, so I’d suggest ordering one or the other, but not ... view more

Oysters and Wine

If you are at the pier, this is a great place to have a tasty lunch or snack. my sister and I ordered a couple dozen oysters and a bowl of clam chowder. the soup was really good kind of broth like with leeks potatoes and bacon,,,different but good. add a nice glass of wine or champaign to that and you have the perfect setting.

Great oysters and beautiful view

This was the first time I've ever been to an ""oyster restaurant"". Oysters were delicious! If you don't want to spend that much money and you're hungry, you should eat the grilled cheese sandwich to get you a little full and then have some raw oysters! What's crazy is I normally don't eat raw oysters, but these were very very good! The oysters are small, yes- but I was told by a friend that the smaller they are,... view more

Go for the ambiance, Go somewhere else for oysters

I've been to the Swam Oyster Depot and loved their oysters. I saw a review on Hog Island on Citysearch and found mostly positive remarks so I decided to take a chance this past weekend.\r \r The setting is great as it is set in the Ferry Terminal next to the Bay. It's a very casual spot but a great joint on a sunny day. However, I was so surprised to see the smallest oysters I have seen ""ever"". Hog Island w... view more

Great oysters and view.

A wonderful casual spot for great oysters, ambiance and service. The prices are good and the views are beautiful. Good location for people watching and rides on the ferry.

Great oysters

I came here on a Tuesday after work for happy hour. It was a tiny bit chilly outside, so we were able to get a table outside by the water pretty easily, but I imagine it's tougher when it's warm outside. We tried two kinds of oysters and both were delicious and fresh tasting. Prices were about average for oysters. The waitress was very friendly and gave suggestions when we asked, but she was a little slow in comi... view more

Oysters are FRESH, FRESH, FRESH!! Expertly shucked. Great selection. Breadsticks & bread are fresh & abundant.\r \r The grilled cheese sandwich is rich & decadent. Safer to share the fat with a friend & focus on the oysters. \r

Best Grilled Cheese

I don't want to diminish the wonderful freshness and quality of the oysters (and they were definitely wonderful), but I was blown away not by the oysters but by the spectacular grilled cheese sandwich. I'm still dreaming about how fabulous it was now - cave-aged gruyere cheese and fromage blanc from cowgirl creamery, oozing out of grilled acme bread. The flavors just burst in your mouth. The pickled vegetables (cu... view more

best clam chowder in the world

If you want to try the best clam chowder in the world then you need to come here. The soup is served with clams in the shell, potato, bacon, and soup broth that is not thick and gooey, but nice with a thin texture. Its perfectly salted and peppered. Its real authentic clam chowder not that soup can tasty feeling you get at the wharf. Also the grilled cheese is ridicolously good. I am not a fan of oysters but whe... view more

fun little dining experience

this was a fun little dining experience. although the line getting seated seemed scary at first, it moved quite quickly once you were in it. (plus, they fed you with breadsticks while waiting.) then, upon entering the venue, we sat and the counter. i loved the experience because you got to see them set your plate in front of you. the shells seemed endless and each one provided their own delightful flavor and tex... view more
