Tried it for the second time earlier today as an un-orthodox breakfast. had the half dozen oysters on the half shell and the crab louise. the crab louise was very good along with the majority of the oysters but yet i still deeply believe that Swan is overrated i don't know if it deserves all its kudos, but yet still see how it stands for an old part of San Francisco. From the no-nonsense waitstaff, to the simple just seafood menu to taking a seat among strangers communally at the marble counter. I guess even the uncomfortable stools even add to the charm of the whole endeavor. But I can't help thinking it's serves more as a nostalgic purpose rather than as a funcitonial purpose.
