Hog Island Oyster Bar

“We were ‘The Oyster Mercenaries’ on a mission to grow great oysters and have fun doing it.”

John Finger and Terry Sawyer, Hog Island Oyster Co.

Hog island oyster bar mix……6 different varieties of oyster but the winner was Hog island sweet water from Tomales Bay, the oyster that they farmed.

This is what I called REAL clam chowder made from scratch with Hog island manila clams vegetables, bacon, potatoes and cream.

Another famous offering from here is the grilled cheese sandwiches.

Opened in 1898 on the site of the 1875 wooden Ferry House, the Ferry Building became the transportation focal point for anyone arriving by train from the East, as well as from all the East Bay and Marin residents who worked in the city. From the Gold Rush until the 1930s, arrival by ferryboat became the only way travelers and commuters—except those coming from the Peninsula—could reach the city.
