First of all, I am not from San Jose. I was here on a business trip from the East Coast. I am from a seafood town, so I definitely know what I'm talking about.

From the time I entered the door to the time I left I was impressed. The staff

One night after a NHL game and a convention had let out, Hawg's was one of the few places with seating available. I ordered the steak and shrimp special with the garlic cheese bread. The plate had a base of steamed veggies, about 4 cups worth. Off one side of the veggie hill was a very nice potato-garlic mash; however it was in the mash that my shrimps were stuck upside down perhaps due to lack of space. Leaning on the other side of veggie hill was the steak. All of this was wading in a puddle of what tasted to be a watered down barbeque sauce. The steak while good screamed for either horseradish or a decent steak sauce. The broiled cheese bread was a disaster. It had what looked like a 1/2 inch thick layer of mayo with a light parmesan cheese topping and after one bite it became an orphan. On the plus side, the portions were very generous. On the minus, the service was uneven, better understanding of food presentation and of what is being served would help move this restaurant into the 5 star position.

The absolute BEST seafood in the Bay Area. Where else can you get lobster for $26.00??? It's fabulous! The oysters are delicious...never a bad one, the salmon is out of this world. My husband and I took his father there (who has travled all around the world and is very picky) he had to call the cook over to tell him that it's the BEST he's ever had. Fully recommend..you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu!

Pros: fresh seafood, exellent oysters, fresh lobster

Cons: at times crowded

At the recommendation of a colleague we tried Hawgs and we were extremely pleased.
As we sat at the bar diners on either side of us shared advice on what to order, a lady next to my husband even offered us a taste of her clam chowder and it was fabulous; they make a cross between a Manhattan and Boston chowder and it was absolutely outstanding. I had Ahi Ahi and it was cooked just as I asked for it, fresh and delicious.
My husband had Fish and Chips, it was cooked just right and came with 3 wonderful sauces. We were served quickly and with a smile. The conversation with other people and the owner/bar tender added to the fun. We will definitely return.

Pros: food, service, value

Hawgs seafood bar is located conveniently in san jose downtown, but is still able to maintain its ambiance of a real marina caf.

It is one of my favorite dining destinations because of its friendly service and fresh seafood. I especially like the "Newhattan" clam chowder and the garlic prawns and pasta. Definately try them when you go there.

Hawgs is a great place for lunch with a co-worker, or a casual dinner before an evening out. Seafood is fresh, but the service is only okay. It does tend to get crowded, so reservations are probably best.
