One of my favorite oakland restaurants for years. Great location on waterfront, good variety on menu from appetizers to burgers to comfort food to fish to steak/chops. Bar side or restaurant side with window seating. good service and reasonably priced.

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

A great spot to enjoy American classics (pot roast, steaks...) or fine seafood. A bar area is open for happy hour as well.

We had a great table with a nice water and marina view. My wife and I went back a few days later for dinner. Same great view and food,... More

After a morning at the gym we decided we could afford to go out to lunch. We chose Kincaid's because of the location. Our table was at the window, so we could watch boats sail by. Service was friendly and relatively fast. I ordered the salad and sandwich lunch combo--1/2 pastrami sandwich, Maytag blue cheese salad. Also came with fries.... More

We were in the bay area for our thirty fifth anniversary and decided to give Kinkaid's a try. Our table had a great view of the bay, the service was excellent, they have a nice wine list, but stay away from the prime rib. We both ordered the prime and it was one of the toughest pieces of meat I... More
