Hog Island Oyster Farm
Where we've featured it
PERFECT FOR: THE PICNIC & THE VIEW || Hog Island might be the best known stop for oysters on the Pacific Coast Highway, and for good reason. The view of Tomales Bay is second only to their chipotle bourbon butter barbecued oysters. The menu looks like a gourmand’s picnic basket: oysters (raw and bbq’d), salad, charcuterie plate (the pickled golden raisins, tho), and a variety of local cheeses and bread. The beer and wine options are quality as well. There’s nothing filling on the menu, and you’ll drop a lot of cash to leave here full. If you want to bring your own accoutrements, you can reserve a picnic table and grill if you’d rather shuck yourself. More touristy than the other oyster spots, Hog Island also sells raw oysters to go if you’d rather shuck elsewhere.
