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.

We ate there tonight. First of all, the focaccia was excellent. We shared the calamari and crb appetizers. The crab was good; the calamari, while tender, was overly breaded. Our mains were very disappointing. I had the prime rib, which I ordered medium rare, but received medium to medium well done. It wasn't particularly tasty, and the mashed potatoes and... More

It had been many years since we had been to Kincaid's. Some friends from Dallas wanted to go there so we met them down in Jack London Square. Happy Hour in the bar before dinner was fine as they have decent house wine for only $5 and $1 off draft beer. We then went to the dining room for dinner.... More

We went to jack London square to eat. To touristy. We ended up at kiincaids because of the water view. The service was bad, food was awful and I am not one to rag on a place if there is some redeeming value. Just would not recommend. On the way back to our car we saw an off the wall... More

I had the crab stuffed Rock Fish. Delicious! If you want steak, there's that too. But the view over the harbor, even at night, was special. And the service was outstanding. Prompt, but not overbearing. Thoughtful, but not overly gabby. A definite repeat on my next trip.

We had a lovely table right on the water and watched the sun set. Service was great, and the food spot on. Nothing was overcooked which seems to be the case at most seafood places

This restaurant has a perfect location right on the marina and we were hoping for a fantastic meal to match the prices. We learned once again that you pay extra for such a beautiful location and the food doesn’t always match up. I thought it was hard to ruin a crab melt sandwich but mine was very little crab and...

This is a very good steak house and I chose to go for my birthday with family and a few friends. The food is great and I had no complaints.

I was brought here after a conference by my hosts. Dinner was delicious and Jacob, our waiter was very nice. I had the pork chop, which was good (not great, but good). The seasonal fruit cobbler was really good for dessert. The rest in our group were very pleased as well.
