It was a very narrow space with the bar running through the whole space with memorabilia and old pictures of the place
Love the setup in front of us with the crackers, mignonette, fresh horseradish and lemons
We were quickly offered some Sourdough Bread with tons of butter... Sourdough is basically synonym with San Francisco, I wonder if every restaurant there serve just that?! Don't get me wrong I like sourdough but I tend to prefer it on it's own with butter since the flavor is pretty strong, I find it a bit overpowering paired with other food.
Clam Chowder Bowl
Full of clams and potatoes, it wasn't very thick and heavy as I expected but still felt very hearty.
All freshly shuck with all the juices served with a huge bowl of their cocktail sauce on the side. Love how they kept all the salty sweet juices since it's pure goodness. I thought the cocktail sauce was a bit too sweet, I prefer it a lot better on it's own since it was so fresh and sweet.
Our server did carefully explain each of the oysters but we obviously didn't have time it mark it down before digging in.
This wasn't on the menu but eyed it by their window and I just had to ask if we can order it. We usually call it Crab Shell but we were told that it should be Crab back and yes we can order it on it's own. I was in heaven, after sharing one it was just not enough so we decided to order a 2nd one. SO GOOD!!! Wish we could have gone back for another round before leaving.
Love my Crab fat!

The seafood is as fresh as you can get but love the atmosphere above all with regulars chatting away while waiting for their takeouts and deliveries all happening in the small space/counter.
