“Quinn's Lighthouse R and P- great location, food, service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We found this treasure after a long day of driving north of SFO and then over the Golden Gate Bridge in the middle of a traffic jamb! The peanuts and ale went together very well and everyone enjoyed the fare and the excellent service. I had the best fish and chips with just excellent red cabbage coleslaw. Wonderful spot to end the day and to fuel up for the trip home to Fremont.

“Fun Restaurant with Great Bay Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Quinn's is a hidden gem in an old lighthouse building on the Embarcadero in Oakland. They have some outstanding dishes like the Cajun Clams which are a mainstay in every meal that we have. The steakhouse tomato salad is also fresh and delicious. Many people love their Seafood Newburg although it's a little rich for me so I will usually have cioppino which is very tasty and a little lighter. But the best thing about Quinns is the scenic view and large beer selection. One of my favorite places to go relax and have a nice casual - yet special - night out.

“Outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This is our favorite resturant in the bay area. The food and service is among the best that I have had. Great out of the way location with free parking. Windows that open onto the water, never rushed to complete your meals. On weekends reservations are a good idea.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our family (one adult, two seniors, one teenager) enjoyed our dinners and all of us were particularly impressed by the excellent service. This former lighthouse has been moved from its previous position but the owners have carefully preserved the original structure. There are good views both from the dining room, and from the more informal upper deck - try them both!
