Farewell Favorites: Maye's Original Oyster House

Maye's Original Oyster House, 1233 Polk Street, was an old style San Francisco fish house and an institution since 1867. Surly waiters, great food, and a piano bar all added to the character of this local favorite. Not long for the 21st Century, Maye's went under in 2001 and was replaced by Axum Cafe, an Ethiopian joint, the following year.
