I look forward to visiting my Oakland client not only because they are such a great client, but because I get to visit Quinn's Lighthouse. Great food along with a fantastic selection of tap beer. The food can't be beat and it is a local spot not on most tourist's radar.

Quinn's Lighthouse Restaurant and Pub was recommended by our hotel as a place within walking distance which also offered a 15% discount if you were a guest of the hotel. The building is quaint and is historic, having been built in 1890 and restored. Downstairs is The Yacht Club dining room. Upstairs is more casual and relaxed - so much... More

We went for lunch when it first opened at 11am. I think you may need reservations but since it just opened for the day they gave us a table at the window. My mom had seafood stew, my brother had fish & vegetables and I had fish and chips. Our food was great. It's a nice out of the way... More

I am not sure how we missed this place before. It's right on the water, in a quiet marina off of the freeway. Lots of free parking. It looks like it's going to just be a pub but they have a VERY extensive menu with something for everyone, at reasonable prices. We had fish and chips, a salad and crab... More

We visited here twice in the same day, once to get a light snack while waiting for our room at a nearby hotel and later that evening for drinks and food with local friends. The beer choice is good and during happy hour you can get 20oz for the price of a pint (or if British a pint for the... More

If your allergic to peanuts don't come here. A pub atmosphere with complimentary peanuts, the menu is anything but pub. We enjoyed Seafood Pasta, it was full of fresh seafood and the portion was filling. I enjoyed the stuffed salmon and would recommend it to others. Calamari was overdone, but everything else was great. I thought the price was a... More
