We stopped here pre dinner for oysters. We sat at a community table which was nice to visit with people and the atmosphere of Oxbow is alive and exciting especially because it was thanksgiving weekend. We had a dozen oysters of different varieties which was great to have that option. I wasn't over the moon about their mignonette, a bit... More

I hadn't realized that it's been over 4 years since i last visited HIOC-Napa. Came on a nippy Saturday and was among those fortunate to be part of the first seating of the day. We sat at the the counter and chose the far end of the counter where we had a superb view of their cooking performance. The high... More

Very fresh oysters. We tried 4 kinds. All had different and distinct tastes. YUMMY! Suggest to go for the one at half price during happy hour. Likely will not disappoint. Otherwise, this is Napa, so not going to fit into a tight budget. The clam chowder was delicious - lots of very fresh clams in the shell in a milk-based... More

It's small, located inside a food market. Crowded feel as you're seated at an actual bar. Very expensive...14$ for 4 oysters, 20$ for a bowl of stew. The food is good and fresh. If you love oysters and don't mind paying a premium this is the place for you! Friendly staff😊

We had friends in town from Mississippi so they were able to give a good review on the sweetwater oysters. Of course they loved them as well as the awesome grill cheese sandwich and clam chowder. A selection of beers and a couple of glasses of champagne were on the table and all were great. Service was on time and... More

We went to Hog Island Oyster which is at Oxbow Market. We enjoyed fresh oysters. We then had their superb clam chowder. It had lots of clams. Food was good. Service was too.

Living on the East Coast, I'm accustomed to eating good non-fishy oysters. Sadly, this was not the case here. My husband ordered fresh oysters for an appetizer and we were hugely disappointed. They were extremely fishy. We ordered oyster po boys for our entree and didn't care for those either. We had other Californian oysters during our stay and these... More

If you like oyster and seafood stew than This is your place! The non seafood items are sparse-salad and grilled cheese, both are good.
