Went for dessert & drink, was NOT disappointed!

Ate at a different establishment for dinner, was forced to eat outside and it was cold! Came to Kincaid's for dessert & a lovely adult beverage - and they did not disappoint! Order the Carmel Martini's and a sinful chocolate cake with ice cream...I wanted to lick the plate, but I did not!

My husband has loved this place for years, taking business travelers to dinner whenever he could. I haven't been myself in years. It isn't the same. Started out with a notice on the door from Alameda county Envornmental Health sticker... I would have walked but hubby was intent on a delicious romantic dinner here. Started off with wonderful warm bread... More

Sat in the bar for a wonderful dinner and magnificent view of SF Bay at sunset. Service was the best and food was even better...fish and chips the best I have ever eaten and my husband's burger can not be beaten. Fair prices and great choices.

There are good restaurants to choose from at Jack London's Square in Oakland, but I prefer Kincaid's for lunch. They have an attentive staff, and although I had only an hour for lunch, they were accommodating. I had a wonderful clam chowder and a tasty blue cheese salad served with hot bread and garlic butter. Nice view of the sailboats... More

This was our first visit to Kincaid's. On a Wednesday evening rush hour, we got stuck in an Oakland traffic jam and decided to pull of the freeway and have dinner. The restaurant is located in Jack London Square, a few blocks from I-880.The restaurant overlooks the Alameda Estuary. We did not have reservations, so we were offered a ten... More

We really like the menu at Kincaids, but don't go often as it is more expensive than we like to spend unless its a special occasion. I request it for anniversary usually. The menu has a good selection of meat and fish entrees. The bar is excellent and the wine selection is superb. It is at Jack London Square and... More

I took the family here for lunch to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. He decided to take advantage of the all you can drink Mimosas for $10. He tried one of each plus a second of his favorite, the Original. My wife and I enjoyed the Bloody Mary Bar (it is hard to complain when you get to make your... More

I have not been to Kincaid's in over 2 years so I had an opportunity to attend a luncheon again this last weekend. I was surprise the place and atmosphere was the same as I remembered. The views of the water and scenery was very nice. The sun was shinning brightly which enhanced the scenery. We have several tables in... More

I've gone to Kincaid's several times. The food ranges from just okay to very good. My recent experience was at the very good range. I had steelhead salmon with grilled kale and white bean ragu and it was memorable. Everything about this visit was memorable. The service was excellent, the waiter was attentive and made sure all of our dining... More
