Swan Oyster Depot information
Superior flavor without the superior attitude of typical seafood restaurants – Swan's downside is an inevitable wait for the few stools at the vintage lunch counter, but the upside of high turnover is incredibly fresh seafood.
Sunny days, place your order to go, browse Polk St boutiques, then breeze past the line to pick up crab salad with Louie dressing and the obligatory top-grade oysters with mignonette sauce. Hike or bus up to George Sterling Park for superlative seafood with ocean views.
