Anchor Oyster Bar & Seafood Market, San Francisco, CA

Anchor Oyster Bar & Seafood Market Restaurant Review

: Since 1977, Anchor Oyster Bar & Seafood Market has lured locals with a simple bait-and-hook: sparkling fresh oysters and seafood for when the hankering hits. The restaurant is friendly, casual and affordable; the tiny Castro storefront is dressed up in blue and white, reminiscent of East Coast seafood bars. Cozy up to one of the few chilly steel tables, or sit along the Formica counter. Locals go for the lunchtime special open-face sandwich of crab, shrimp and cheese. For dinner, try the crab burger --- pulled crab slathered in tartar sauce and sandwiched inside a soft sesame seed bun. Beverages include wine, beer, iced tea and lemonade. No desserts.
