It was lovely to sit out on the deck with our cold drinks and lunch. The food was good as was the service. I had a turkey burger that was an actual large piece of well seasoned turkey as sweet potato fries that were nice and crunchy.

I used to go here a lot when I lived in the area. I think it is Thursday evenings they have live pirate music upstairs. Upstairs is the bar/restaurant (peanut shells on the floor), and down stairs is the restaurant only (more distinguished if that is what you prefer). Good beer selection, great food.

This is great place to enjoy happy hour with beer and peanuts overlooking boats and lagoon. Atmosphere is funky and relaxing. If you are looking for delicious meal, head for Jack London Square.

Great place, wonderful location with great views of the bay! Love the outdoor seating especially on a hot summer day, good beer, great appetizers, love their salted peanuts, throwing shells on the floor makes it fun! would definitely recommend this place for lunch or dinner!

I have heard stories about Quinn's Lighthouse which has been around for a longtime and famous for peanuts on the floor. My friends had a great time throwing peanuts at each other. The calamari steak with the asparagus and rice was OK but not great. This fish and chips looked OK but I've seen better looking. If I ever went... More

we arrived at Oakland BW hotel late evening and asked at reception for a place to eat something. They suggested the Quinn's Lighthouse. What a surprise! It's a very nice place, pretty environment, old navy style, great beers, good seafood, prepared and presented with care. Last but not least: great value for money. what else? go and taste it

This spot has a lot of character and overlooks a small marina. The nautical theme has a genuine feel and makes you feel right at home. I had lunch on the 2nd floor deck above the marina. The rueben, as one reviewer stated is not remarkable, and I would not recommend it. The sweet potato fries were cooked and seasoned... More

We went to Quinn's based on the reviews of other Trippers... We always ask "What are you known for?", and the answer unequivocally was "Fish and Chips (and the burgers)". The breading was light, and fluffy. The fish was good. I had the "Chef's Special"... salmon, shrimp, scallops, asparagus, and some white fish. I have to say it was bland,... More
