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.

I'm here in Oakland on a business trip with my manager. Went to Kinkaid's to have a cocktail and watch the World Series. Our bartender waiter was Sam. A very nice young man and very willing to please the customers. Had a beer and fish tacos and prime rib sliders. Both of the food items where very generous and reasonable... More

My friend stopped here only because it was near Jack London Marina--right next door. There are many to choose from nearby. Having said that, I was very happy we chose Kincaid's. It was early in the evening so the crowd was light. After the long ocean passage from Washington State the first order of business was choosing a beer from... More

Love brought me here for my 23rd birthday Soooooo good! No joke. The clam chowder was on hit and it just hit the spot! The boyfriend got prime rib which was cooked to perfection and I got a really good pasta dish that had big succulent shrimp that were just to die for after every bite (: Overlooking the water...

Service is spotty have been here four times now and each time had the same amazing food but each time the service has fluctuated. The last visit was the worst. We essentially came and got sat at a table it seems no one thought was theirs. So it seems none of you wanted the 20% tip then. Odd scenario for... More

I take my mom here to enjoy relaxing and eating Kincaids Fish n Chips. Great food. I especially love relaxing looking out at the water as the world floats by.

Actually we came across the place as we were down by the waterfront and wanted to have a glass of wine late in the afternoon. We are not wine connoisseurs but knew enough to appreciate the selection was reasonable. So in later looking for dinner in the Jack London Square area of Oakland, there were several to choose from and... More

We ate here twice on our trip. The price isn't exactly inexpensive; however, the food was very good. Both times we ate on the bar side of the restaurant, which was very crowded. The tables are very close together. We felt like we were eating with the party sitting next to us. I would recommend sitting on the other side.... More
