This was a great dining experience right on the water. Beautiful view! I didn't care for the fish I ordered and they replaced it with a delicious red snapper with no hassle. 😀 The service was stellar! The mashed sweet potatoes and calamari and artichokes were excellent. The decadent chocolate cake was EVERYTHING with a great cup of coffee!!!

This place was excellent. Went here for my son's 28th birthday. My son made the reservations online. My wife and I arrived first and were seated. What an amazing view over the estuary and pier. I got the lobster bisque soup and one of the daily specials with Red Snapper. Wow! Both of these were great tasting. Since I got... More

We had a business dinner here and I was pleasantly surprised by the view from our window seat. The sunset was stunning. We ordered dinner, pan roasted seafood with fettuccine and Mahi Mahi and the food was delicious. If you want to impress choose Kincaids.

Brunch Offering was very nice... Seafood Louie was refreshing and good value. Fish and Chips were great. Brunch items cooked to order as requested. Loved the Bloody Mary Bar.... Miss one of my favorite bartenders (Regina) and the lavender cosmos but I hear she's moved on to another opportunity. Great view, reasonable prices, and loved our server. Always a pleasant... More

Extensive American Seafood and Grill menu, very nice appetizers, with good if standard entree's. Enjoyed good service though servers not as polished as they should be for a restaurant with above average prices. Very nice setting on the waterfront in Oakland

Kincaid's has established itself as a fixture in Jack London Square. Great steaks and seafood and the best crab cakes I've ever had. Generous portions of crab with a raspberry coulee sauce that's incredible. Go at sunset for fantastic views.

The view of the water is beautiful and our server was very attentive. We ordered the Rockefeller oysters and had a small sampler to start. My 8 year old ordered chicken strips off the kids menu that were slightly over fried. The side item of fruit were slices of oranges and strawberries that were beautifully presented. I had the lobster... More

They had only 2 GF options on the menu. I ordered grilled prawns that came with quinoa and veggies. It was okay, but there wasn't much flavor. My mother had grilled sirloin and fries and liked it. I thought her steak could have been more tender. My son had Bananas Foster waffles. They looked really good and he liked them,... More
