lunch on the water--lovely

Relaxed time with attentive service and delicious food. Lobster bisque is one of the best, hamburger great, salads well composed and fresh. Ate more bread than we needed! Our third time and we'll go again.

Back in the day Scott's was great. Just like all older established restaurants, they've had their time and they need to make some changes, or their not going to be here much longer. Luckily Jack London Square gets lots of tourists. Places like Scott's can hold on based on the tourists don't know any better.

The best evening dining experience that you can have with your love one. Good wine selection, great food, the three last visits they had a piano player performing great jazzy tunes as well as nice slow music. To sum it up:GO THERE!! YEAH GO THERE!!

Request a window seat to watch boats go by and to see Alameda and the houseboats. Service was lackluster considering the prices. One server was kind of snippy. Food was delicious though. Try the lobster sandwich. The bread melts in your melt. It's perfection!

Scott's has been our go-to seafood restaurant for over 40 years. First the one in San Francisco, now Oakland. The fantastic meals and decorations at Christmas time is a family tradition we never miss. I love their Fisherman's Stew and my family all loves the Calamari. But it's all great, and you can't miss. Nice views and an incredible staff.... More

This is a beautiful restaurant in Jack London Square. It overlooks the estuary where many boats are anchored. We sat on the patio for lunch. We ordered two salads, one with bay shrimp and the other with crab. Both salads included avocado. They were both tasty, but the $25 price tag was a bit steep for the size of the... More

Passed appetizers as group arrived and had drinks, then buffet dinner and dessert and coffee served at tables. All very fresh and good, even for those of us who don't eat seafood. Banquets for large groups can be challenging;... More

The view at this restaurant is great. The staff is friendly and competent. The sourdough bread fantastic - I am pretty sure that I ate the whole loaf myself. I had the Cesar salad which was excellent. Hints of the lemon and the sardines made this complete. I had the plank bourbon salmon served with sliced potatoes. Tasty and a... More
