hawg's seafood bar has been in business next to the san josé rep theatre for quite some time now. i had always seen it downtown but finally got around to visiting it last sunday. it's a pretty good seafood restaurant; not really fancy but rather down to earth. pretty good food, well presented and well served. the paella and cioppino are both good bets. the raw oysters are pretty good. the blueberry cheesecake has real blueberries in the actual cake and a layer of cream cheese on top. the hypnotini's a good drink.
