SF Weekly's Description

After flirtations with Irish and Ethiopian cookery, the venerable old fish house is back, albeit reinvented as a 21st-century bar/lounge/hangout with fried capers, tobiko, and preserved lemon accenting the clams, oysters, Dungeness, and hamachi. The cocktail lounge features an oyster bar, animal-print seating, and a roaring hearth; the dining room's saffron and mahogany setting is warm and attractive; and the seafood specialties are impeccably fresh and occasionally inspired. Happy hour nightly; DJ-driven dancing weekends after 10 p.m.

Tips from foursquare

  • ZAGAT on 04/21/10

    Check out the $1 oyster happy hour from 5:30–6:30 PM daily.

  • AskMen on 10/29/10

    Solid oyster joint during the day, happening spot that's half-bar & half-nightclub at night. On game days, though, is when this place really shines comfy tables and big screen TVs everywhere.

  • Melissa R. on 02/18/12

    $6 beer & Jameson shot. $1 oysters everyday from 4-7pm!

  • Rob R. on 11/21/11

    Wild dance parties can ensue. Best bet is to get there before about 1130 so that you don't have to wait in long lines.

    Great Happy Hour & $1 Oysters ain't bad either.
