Quinn's Lighthouse Bar and Restaurant is a fabulous place to hang out, eat, drink, watch your favorite sports team and spend time with family and friends. GREAT views of the Bay Side across from the Alameda US Coast Guard Station, and located on the Embarcadero just down the street from Jack London Square. If you bring the Water Taxi over... More

Although they aren't as good as they used to be, they still have good food and a good atmosphere. I think they are resting on their reputation a little and need to get back to the way it used to be.

We chose to come here for our anniversary because I love to have a waterfront view. I heard the food was delicious too. The view was very pretty. Boats parked, sailing in and ducks swimming. We watched the sunset. I chose paella and was not disappointed. I ordered a Baja gold cocktail. These are some big cocktails. I left stumbling.... More

A go to place for lunch or dinner. Great seafood, beers, views, and an old-school vibe. Full service restaurant on the main floor, but more fun upstairs. My grandchildren love the place, they can eat peanuts and throw the shell on the floor! The seafood is way better than you might think.

Should be a fun place to hang out on a sunny afternoon. Food is typical bar food, but OK. Atmosphere is OK-view is good. Service? Hoo boy. My mom is in her 80's with limited mobility. Finding someplace where she can enjoy a lovely day is sometimes a challenge. The deck at Quinn's is a bit of a trek for... More

I have been sitting upstairs and going to this place for over 30 years. Outstanding good, Drake's Ales last time I was there and a great outdoor deck overlooking the marina on the Oakland estuary! Love this place!

The upper deck is our favorite. Great views and good pub food with a wide selection from seafood to excellent sandwiches. They have a full bar with lots of beers as well

We were sent here by two different locals independently. Apparently it's very popular! It was on the marina, and had a nice, nautical atmosphere. Prices are a bit high for me, but the food was plentiful and excellent. The thing I really want to recommend is the "Doodah" plate....you can get various versions, but what it is is something reasonably... More

Had a nice lunch here with my coworkers while in the area for business. A tad on the expensive side, but I think it's worth it. I had the chicken "doodaa," which was grilled chicken breast on a bed of steamed vegetables, rice, black beans, and corn salsa.

I've been here for lunch many times over the years and a couple of times for dinner. It is multi level dinning. Great lunch menu, full bar, and dinner menu!
