Swan Oyster Depot, San Francisco
This place is crazy popular! I arrived before noon on a Thursday and there was already a line out the door! There’s limited seating inside, only stools at the singular counter so you must wait until a seat becomes available. I wouldn’t recommend going here with a large group because you might be waiting a long time! The wait is definitely worth the wait for the freshest seafood and great service. The guys behind the counter are super friendly and the place just has a very cool, old-school vibe.
The dungeness crab was delicious! They do a great job cracking the shells so it’s fairly easy to remove all the yummy flesh. I ordered mine with cocktail sauce but next time I’ll try the Louie sauce. That would complete the decadent meal, hehe!
Sourdough bread and butter. Complimentary.
