We have never found a larger, fresher, more flavorful fruit plate, fresher eggs, or better service and prices than at this neighborhood spot in the produce warehouse part of Jack London Square. Not fancy or trendy, just high quality food. They must walk next door to the produce vendors every morning, things taste that fresh. They pride themselves on that.... More

On the suggestion of a close family friend who used to live close by, my family and I decided to check this place out. Of course we got lost during the busiest time of the produce terminal in Oakland, but we eventually found the place. My breakfast was ham with two over-easy eggs, country potatoes, toast, and couple slices of... More

Despite the name you can get a really decent veggie burger here. Been quite a few time the service is friendly and quick and there are a few good options.

I don't know where to start so let me just say the following items were awesome: service, omelettes, pancakes, potatoes, eggs benedict, chicken sausage, sourdough toast, coffee and mimosas. If you are in Oakland then do your palette and yourself a favor and come to the Oakland Grill. That is all.

Location: Downtown Oakland, street parking hard to find parking during weekend. Customer Service: Staff is attentive, food came promptly.Didn't take long at all. Decor: I love, love, love the mural in front. It really captures the heart of Oakland. The warehouse turned into restaurant venue looked great. Presentation of Food: Nothing special, regular food on the plate. How did the... More

I visited the Oakland Grill several times during my recent visit with a friend in the warehouse district of Oakland. The restaurant is located in the middle of the wholesale fruit and vegetable market, and if you arrive in the morning, you will be navigating around small forklift trucks zooming about reorganizing deliveries of an enormous array of colorful fruits...

Oakland Grill has been in the same spot for as long as i can remember -- at least 20 years. It recently changed hands, but the basics remain the same: good food, Reasonable prices, and a funky place to watch the neighbors go by. A favorite for breakfast, Oakland Grill also provide hearty lunches. My favorite times to go are... More

I really like the Oakland Grill and I come here for breakfast whenever a stay in Jack London Square. It isn't fancy but it is homey and really very charming. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The multiethnic clientele makes for a fun dining experience. The restaurant and bathrooms are clean. The Oakland Grill is a couple of blocks... More

In the middle of Oakland's food terminal (which is a district rather than a building) so the food is fresh, lots of healthy options and also very good bacon; quantities are generous. Booths were nice for a lunch meeting. Prices are very reasonable.
