great grilled cheese Sep 16, 2007
known for the oysters, i actually was looking forward to having the grilled cheese. the grilled cheese delivers. it was delicious! the grilled cheese uses 3 kinds of cheeses from the cowgirl creamery (also in the ferry building): gruyere (aged in a cave), mazzo secco and fromage blanc. the cheeses were beautifully melted and blended. the bread had a nice crunch to it as well. the serving was generous. i highly recommend the grilled cheese.

i also had the clam chowder, which comes with real clams, cream and some pieces of bacon. if you sit in the bar, you can see the chef prepare it. and it is prepared upon ordering and is not sitting on some stove. it is a bit salty but i think it grows on you. i did enjoy this clam chowder.

a friend had some oysters but i thought it was too early for oysters. but she says that it was delicious.

UPDATE - June 8, 2008

the grilled cheese is still fantabulous.

this time, i also had the frisee salad with anchovies. this was a perfect refreshing salad on a beautiful day.

This is an interesting place to eat at just a few minutes outside of

Pt. Reyes. You buy as many fresh oysters as you want and then barbecue

them in a picnic area right next to the shop. They provide the various

ingredients and tools to cook the oysters with. It costs a bit more

extra money to rent a picnic spot but it seemed like a very festive and

communal atmosphere. The staff here is very friendly and patient with

oyster newbies.

If you want to save on some money, just buy some oysters at the shop

and take them home and steam them. This is what we decided to do, and

they tasted pretty good when combined with a simple garlic, butter, and

vingear sauce. The oysters themselves are pretty cheap and they have a

wide variety of types in stock.
