Fresh oysters can certainly become an expensive habit, often nearing five dollars a pop at some of SF's most discerning restaurants — unless you know where to find them for a dollar (or very close to, at least). From high end restaurants to low-key watering holes and bars, there is a mollusk waiting for you in San Francisco. And because these deals often fall into the happy hour zone, there are usually great drink specials, and other discounted snacks to go along with the briny treats.

Grab some friends and a glass of sparkling wine, and check out these 26 places around the city, offering up the bivalves at exceptionally low prices throughout San Francisco. With deals like these, you can slurp up as many as your little heart desires.
