San Francisco’s oldest restaurant in its original location still stands strong 150 years after it was established in 1861.
The Old Clam House has been restored to its Victorian roots dating back to the Gold Rush when President Abraham Lincoln presided. The momentous 150-year restoration was celebrated on February 23.
In San Francisco style, the celebration reached the stars. Guests included Herb Caen, Joe Montana, Eric Wright, Willie McCovey, Reggie Jackson, Loni Anderson, Vida Blue and Jerry Rice!
Originally known as The Oakdale Bar & Clam House, the restaurant continues to serve its signature hot shots of clam juice, a longstanding staple of San Francisco.
