I hate to call any place a San Francisco institution, but Swan is close as it gets. There is almost always a line and there is a good reason. Fresh oysters, crab salads with perfect Louie dressing, spectacular clam chowder, crusty sourdough, and pints are all served up with a smile by the eager and entertaining staff. Street parking can be found but it might take you a while depending on the time of day. Mon-Sat 8am-5:30pm. No reservations. Cash only.
