I spent a lot of time here in my younger years and loved it just as much today as I did back then. It is beautiful and familu friendly with many places to bbq, playgrounds, boat rentals and a restaurant. We spent out time walking...around the lake and loved it!More
The cafe is pretty small with not much seating space inside but serves some good food + ice cream bars. There is lot of seating space outside overlooking the marina.
We can also rent different types of boats like paddle boats, kayaks, electric boats etc....Service is friendly and professional.More
Wow... unexpected experience here! The cute little walk up cafe is so nice. The food was good, the prices perfectly in line, and sitting out on the wooden deck overlooking the lake... you would have no idea. Great place to have lunch, or bring the...family over the weekend.More
This is a real hidden gem in Castro Valley. I have lived in the bay area for over 40 years and just now discovered this place. They have a wonderful biking/walking trail (East and West trails) with beautiful changing views. We took the East trail...this time and it has its ups and downs so expect there to be some challenges if you are a beginner hiker/biker. There are many benches along the trail so you can just sit and take in the scenery. Also, there were many picnic tables and places for families to have celebrations when you enter the park. The marina offers boat, fishing equipment and kayak rentals and the prices are reasonable. There is also a small cafe and very nice seating area where you have a gorgeous view of the lake and marina. They charge $5.00 for parking inside the park however, there are lots of places to park outside along the road. Next time we will rent a boat and take a tour of the lake, bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the water!More
I love Lake Chabot. There's great walks around the reservoir, and there's plenty to do including renting kayaks etc. The cafe is really good including great sandwiches at a decent price. Fun way to spend a day or just an afternoon. Prices are not too...high.More

Dear ClintPage, thank you so much for your four-star rating of Lake Chabot Marina & Cafe! We appreciate your positive feedback and hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
My first time renting a kayak at Lake Chabot was a fantastic experience. ROB, at the Lake Chabot Marina and Café, got us through the paperwork easily and made sure we got the equipment and information we needed to have a great experience on the...lake. He was kind, helpful, fun, and was even waiting at the dock when we returned to make our exit easier. What a gem!More

After our enjoyable walk around part of the lake, we decided to get a bite to eat. I ordered the Deer Canyon Wrap which was very good but maybe could have used a bit more of the Cranberry Cream Cheese as I couldn't taste it...much. My husband ordered the Skippy burger with fried potatoes and said it was very good. Staff was very personable and helped us with directions since GPS wasn't working. Definitely recommend!More
The marina and cafe are well worth visiting if you are in the Anthony Chabot park, or just in the area and fancy tasty food in a great location. The team at the cafe when we visited were very helpful. We had the "Way Down...South", packed in a take-away box so we could go out and eat it on the lake.More
