I haven't tried these so, others will need to verify how good or bad. I just have them noted.
I'm not going to put the links in because for my own preference, I'm only link to reports that have substantial reports about a place.
I love that Hog Island happy hour, the oysters are always great, and the view (if you get one of the tables with one) is lovely. Warning, though: get there at 4:45 if you don't want to have to wait for a while. Also, it's not that all of the oysters are $1, they pick one kind to be $1 for each happy hour.
Scott Howard has a great happy hour and also has $1 oysters. They come nicely presented with good asian-y mignonette. Also $5 drinks and a good cheap tomato soup with grilled cheese strips for $7:
tuesday thru friday 5 - 7pm
$5 specialty cocktails
$2 bottled beer
$3 well drinks
$1 oysters on the half shell
500 jackson street.
We shared spicy tuna rolls (4.00), ahi crostini on risotto cake (6.50), crispy seafood cigars on scattered greens (6.00), and beef skewers with "spicy" peanut sauce (7.50). Didn't really like the risotto cake, but everything else was good, though nothing was particularly spicy. Service was friendly. A good value, especially with the live jazz on Sundays.
