Sit at the counter and watch your oysters being shucked. Food is fresh and tasty. Busy and lively place, open access to the market in the Ferry Building on one side and the harbour/ocean on the other.

This place is amazing. We waited in line for about 25 minutes but it was well worth the wait. We sat at the bar where we could see all of the action. We saw them shuck the oysters in front of us. We tried the...More

Great food, loved the chowder and oysters, we had a nice glass of champagne to go along with it. Expect to wait in line but worth the wait. It's located outside behind the Ferry Building.
