We all know the Bay Area is known for their oysters. The sight of delicious oysters over ice with a glass of champagne has our mouths watering. However, we know sometimes those platters can get a bit pricey so we’ve narrowed our list down to some great happy hours that tame that seafood craving without breaking the bank. Not to mention, its one of the best ways to spend your time in the San Francisco. Here are the city’s prime spots for $1 oysters.
Ferry Seafood Building: This restaurant has only recently become known for their fantastic seafood including their oysters. They’ve got an extremely extensive menu and a great variety of drinks. They have about 7 different oysters from across the US, including Kumamotos. It’s a great place to grab some seafood and it completely allows you to avoid the touristy Fisherman’s Warf. Also, note their happy hour: Tuesday-Saturday from 3:30 to 5:30. This includes $1 oysters, $4 Clam Chowder Cups and $3 Pomme Frites and more!
