The Boat Oyster Bar is our outdoor cafe at Hog Island Oyster Farm. At â€˜The Boatâ€™ all seating is outdoors at communal (shared) picnic tables in our picnic area beside Tomales Bay. We serve raw & BBQ oysters and a small menu of local cheese, charcuterie, salads and house seafood specials. Please no outside food. If you desire to bring your own picnic and stay a bit longer please book a Shuck-Your-Own Picnic table.
Seating at The Boat is by reservation-only. Seats may be reserved for 1 1/2 hour bookings. With increasing demand (and wait times!) our goal is to serve you the best oyster experience possible.
