$1 Oysters in San Francisco and the East Bay

 

$1 Oysters in San Francisco and the East Bay

I love raw oysters on the half shell. I grew up eating gulf coast oysters by the bucket full with my grandfather, and have loved them ever since. They can be expensive, but they don’t have to be!

I put together this list of where to get $1 oysters in San Francisco and the East Bay no matter what night of the week it is – I hope it is helpful.

Enjoy!

    Hey F, Nice catch! They do oysters “every day” and I assumed that was Monday too :)

    Thanks.

    I’ll add on Mission Rock Resort – they have $1 happy hour oysters Monday-Friday, 3pm-7pm. Nice views of the bay as well.

    Mission Rock Resort Added – thanks for the update!

  • Tessa

    Thank you, from another one who grew up on shellfish, salmon and crab straight from the source! Any idea how many of these places have local/northern calif oysters, vs frozen, flown in from lord knows what source?!

  • http://www.benhanna.com Ben Hanna

    Tessa, I am not sure what the source of the oysters are. I assume they vary, but I know I have had a bunch from Washington and Northern Cali.
