Eat Seafood at Swan Oyster Depot
Swan Oyster Depot, located at 1517 Polk Street, is popular with tourists and locals. This seafood depot serves the freshest seafood in town. The Historic Swan Oyster Depot is the city’s delight when it comes to fresh seafood. The Swan Oyster Depot opened to the public in 1912. This shrine to delicious seafood is housed in its original location that has remained virtually untouched since its inception which adds a historic and cultural flavor to your experience.
When you arrive, you will be welcomed with the sight of a historic long fish-shaped brass door handle. Across the mosaic floor, you will see the famous 18-seat barstool countertop dining centered in a narrow room that has been skillfully serving locals and tourists for over 100 years. Most San Francisco locals have grown up with the Swan Oyster Depot. You will find that the catch is always fresh and recipes are creations of simple, yet incredible flavors. Because this beloved local restaurant only offers 18-seat countertop dining, there is usually a wait, but with such a culinary journey in store, it is well worth the wait.
At Swan Oyster Depot, hospitality is the key priority for the Sancimino brothers, owners of the restaurant, and their staff. Dining here is indeed an experience – rather than merely a meal.
