SF Weekly's Description

This Castro eatery is a study in sparkling silver, as cool in appearance as the beds of ice cupping spreads of oysters. Although fresh raw bivalves make an appearance on most tables at Anchor Oyster Bar, cooked seafood is excellent here as well. The menu includes a Boston-style clam chowder; simple, delectable bowls of steamed mussels and clams; and daily fish and seafood entrée specials like crab cakes. Start your meal with shrimp cocktail or an oyster shooter.

    Cioppino is always amazing and always on the menu. It's huge so share it and get an extra order of garlic bread. Trust.

    To help you get an idea of how long the wait is...we arrived 7:40 on a Monday night. Got seated at 8:30. Typical SF :P Slowwww service but it's hard to hate them for it bc they are sooooo friendly.
