We came here on our last visit 4 years ago and had to come back. The service was great for a busy Monday night but it is loud in there. We had the clam chowder and shared the Mac n' cheese. The chowder is better than anything you can get over in San Francisco. The Mac'n cheese was to die... More

This place is around the corner from my office, its a fun place to stop for lunch or for after work drinks. The sandwiches are all really good and seem scratch made which is nice. I have never had a problem with service and enjoy the atmosphere, they have tvs with the current games on which is fun after work... More

This was such a cute place. The atmosphere is chill but has an exciting night life vibe. There was a dj spinning some soul music and house that kept the energy up as well. I got the catfish with kale and fries. IT was delish and my friends enjoyed their meals as well. Also the staff was nice and had... More

Luka's is definitely LOCAL. Luka's is definitely OAKLAND. For that, I like it and respect it. Before the Uptown area of Oakland started to be redeveloped (when I moved to Oakland, there was no such thing as "Uptown" Oakland) -- before Ozumo, before Mua, before Z-bar, before Plum -- there was only Luka. It's an Oakland institution. The food is... More

I work in downtown Oakland and USED to frequent this spot weekly, early on a couple times a week. Solid food: great burger you can actually order & get medium rare, best fries in Uptown, Oyster Mondays, changing creative specials & soups, even a cheese plate for when you're feeling "fu-fu". Solid cocktails: Fairly wide range of spirits, signatures that... More

It took an hour and a half to get a burger, but they did comp my drinks. The burger was good, but by the time I got it I was too old to be able to chew normal food.

Large variety on menu. Food well prepared...I had the roasted turkey sandwich and a martini. The service is outstanding with a friendly staff. Good place any time of the day.

You can always trust to have a yummy burger at Luka's. It's location is great and it's very oakland. Diverse crowed, has sports on if there is a major game going on. They have music in one room sometimes, or you could play pool. All around a good place to meet folks.

Luka's should be on your list if you visit or live in the Bay Areal. Monday night is $1 oyster night, so if you like 'em on the half shell like I do, this alone justifies the trip. The oysters are fine, crisp, salty, cold and of a nice size, and at $1 per, you can chow down. Four of... More
