Good American Food by the Water

Jack London Square doesn't have much besides restaurants, but Kincaid's is a good place by the water to eat. Good service, nice view of the marina, quiet time of day (mid afternoon). We both had the grilled salmon with asparagus and salad and it was very nicely prepared.

Visted with a girlfriend in search of American cuisine. I ordered seafood fettuccine she had short rib ravioli. Both were excellent. The seafood pasta was well seasoned with a tad of spice from red pepper flakes. The portion was enough to get full and still take some home for later. The ravioli was to die for but not a large...

The food was fine but overpriced. The service was adequate (but pretty good for Oakland). The view was nice. I guess it's about what you'd expect in a tourist destination.

This is a nice family restaurant with very friendly staff. It's a pretty nice place to enjoy dinner with friends and family. It always on my top 5 list of restaurants in Oakland.

My daughter and I had an enjoyable late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. She had the fish tacos and I had the hamburger with a side salad instead of fries. It was pricey but the service, view, and food quality all added up to money well spent.

Delicious "Old School" food....this is the type of food you ate when you out for fine dining in the 70s....still VERY good and worth it but don't go here if you're looking for new cuisine or any preparations that are unique or different.

Fathers' Day is a day when many dads are taken out to lunch or brunch by their families. Restaurants should be aware of this, and staff accordingly. As I write this, we have been waiting roughly 45 minutes for our brunch. I have had to ask for one refill on my coffee, and the food took this long to arrive.... More

Was doing business here of last year and the food was amazing ( try the lobster bisque) and the Manhattan is unmatched. A very classy and romantic get away.

Our party of three had a great late afternoon snack at Kincaid's at Jack London Square on Saturday afternoon. We had appetizers and especially enjoyed the steamed clams, and the crab cakes. The service was attentive and timely. The big picture windows of the Oakland Estuary are the best and we sat in the lounge/bar area which allowed us to... More

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!
