Extremely long lines to wait in for everything, especially oysters from the best vendors. Even though Drake's Bay had the largest oysters, the vendor with the baja oysters were the best w/the shortest line! After paying admission and waiting in line an hour+ for oysters and $7 beers, I will think twice about coming again. Organizers need to have adequate space and enough oyster vendors to meet the demand.

First you gotta pay 17.50 to get into the joint provided you went through Gold star or any other discount site or else it's a steep 40 at the door. Then it takes over 2 hours to get to be able to place your order because the lines moved so slow, and in some cases wait another 30-40 minutes after your order is placed since they have to shuck the things. Lastly it costs roughly the same or if not more than in other actual restaurants and establishments so really what's the point? If it's for the live music or alcohol that was served that took equally as long well then it's certainly not worth it.

1. Nice venue
1. Long lines
2. Not nearly enough oysters (or even food).
I was looking forward to this festival as I am from Louisiana and love oysters, beer and music. While the music kept going...the lines at Oysterfest were out of control. It might as well have been called linefest. I expected that beers would be a little steep, but at $8 for a Guinness I thought that was even a bit too much. The worst thing that happened was that after waiting in line for ~45min-1hr for Tomales Bay oysters, they RAN OUT OF OYSTERS. And after that there was no way I was going to switch to the >1hr long line for Drake's Bay oysters. Lame, lame, lame. We left right after that. At least tickets were half off.
