By Dana Eastland. Fabulous San Francisco classic ~SAM’S GRILL AND SEAFOOD RESTAURANT~ is celebrating 148 years in business this month. The week of November 9th (through the 13th), they’ll be adding an outdoor raw bar to the restaurant, where raw bar specials will be available all week long. You’ll be able to get a dozen freshly shucked oysters for $14.80, for starters, as well as other specials. The counter is designed as an homage to the open-air market where Sam’s founder Michael Molan Moraghan used to sell his shellfish (he was even dubbed the Oyster King of California).

In addition to their anniversary celebrations, Sam’s is launching a happy hour Mon-Fri from 4pm-7pm outside of their seafood alley. They’ll have drink specials for $7 and shared platters for $11. The dishes will vary daily, but will always include some of their classic seafood choices.
