Why locals recommend it
This is an old, classic haunt. These guys have been here forever. If I was visiting and in this part of town, this is where I would would go. There’s not a big selection of oysters, but they’re tight: Whatever they have, you know they’re properly sourced. They have a shucker right there in the window, and they move a lot of product. They open their doors everyday at 11am, and there’s already a line down the block. You have to be hip to having a little bit of a wait. No question. This place is bustling and busy everyday they’re open.

It is a wait in line but this is San Francisco staple for Louie's and oysters. Family owned and operated. Belly up to the bar!

Tiny casual SF classic for seafood - fresh crab, oysters, can't be beat. Prepare for a line. Its well worth the wait.

The absolute best place for seafood in San Francisco. A favorite of Anthony Bourdain, Swan Oyster Depot is a hidden gem that you'll go back home talking about.
