We're spoiled. There, we said it. We have access to some of the freshest produce in the country as well as top-quality seafood. Indulge your gourmet ways at Red Hill Station, a cozy seafood joint in Bernal Heights. The chefs bake their own bread and bring in the freshest fish, oysters, clams, crab and mussels — we're talking about the plumpest, tastiest mussels we've ever had, flown in from Saltspring Island in British Columbia. There are only about 10 tables in the main area, but if you want to dig into a feast with friends you can reserve a private space. The small but mighty brunch menu includes a Belgian waffle with maple cream and a pesto burrata omelet. Yes, we have it good.


A restaurant serving seafood so fresh you can practically taste the ocean.
Casual surf 'n' turf in a friendly spot.
