Fun for the Family

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... read 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 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

Although the view is nice, the food was not that great. Perhaps we were there on an 'off' evening. I ordered the short ribs and my husband ordered the prime rib. First off, the presentation was grim. It looked like someone had just tossed the short ribs onto the mashed potatoes, drowned it in 'sauce' and then put the mushrooms... More

Over on holiday and popped in here to try it. Didn't have a reservation but seated straight away (night before Christmas eve). Beautiful window seat looking out over the marina.

A group of friends and I gathered at Jack London Square for great food and an excellent view. I has the sirloin dish which was really good and well cooked. The appetizers and dessert were also pretty good. This would probably be a great spot during the summer.

Our group had an excellent dining experience overlooking the water. Sailboats were exiting the docks and going right past our window. Everyone in our party rated there choice from the menu as excellent and the service was friendly and prompt.
