About The Old Clam House
The Old Clam House first opened its doors as the Oakdale Bar & Clam House, the same year that Lincoln was inaugurated as President of the United States and San Francisco was blossoming as a city. When the San Francisco famous restaurant opened in this atmosphere of young America, it was constructed on what was then the waterfront to the south of Islais Creek, just below Bernal Heights. The restaurant at one time was connected to downtown San Francisco by an estimated two miles of plank road. It quickly became a gathering place for the waterfront workers and neighbors settling in the area during an era when the Bay Area boasted a thriving fishing industry.
