Swan Oyster Depot

Seafood | Polk Gulch

For over 100 years, this "no-frills” lunch counter and fish market in Polk Gulch has been a "San Francisco tradition", shucking up some of "the best oysters" in town while also offering other "fresh-off-the-boat shellfish" and "Anchor Steam on draft"; it might be "hard to believe a place so decrepit" and "so expensive" still draws "lines out the door", but "nostalgics" insist the lively "banter with the owners behind the counter" is the extra sauce sealing its deal as “the Valhalla of seafood"; P.S. open till 5:30 PM.
