Swan Oyster Depot
17 expert reviews
“Turning 98 years old in 2010, Swan Oyster Depot is a classic San Francisco dining experience you shouldn't miss.”
"Opened in 1912, Swan Oyster Depot isn't a restaurant, it's a landmark."
The stools at the long, narrow counter fill up during the lunch hour, so try to get there before or after noon.
"Half fish market and half diner, this small, slim, family-run seafood operation, open since 1912, has no tables, just a narrow marble counter with about a dozen-and-a-half stools." Full review

"Tiny, no-nonsense, and bursting at the gills with the freshest seafood ever since 1912."

"The clam chowder is considered the best in the city by many, but all the seafood here is fresh."
