Great sunset and peaceful. Restaurant is quaint. Nice little hidden gem. Safe area, had to park across the street.

Quinn's was very quiet and quaint. I ordered a chicken dish as I am allergic to seafood. The dish had a Mexican flare: Spanish rice, black beans, salsa, and a very tender boneless, skinless chicken breast. I recommend a visit and will definitely go again.

Quinn's has a great location along the Embarcadero and a nice nautically themed restaurant. Unfortunately, the food is average and the service far from stellar. I can't recommend with so many other options in the Bay Area to choose from.

My family and I ate dinner at Quinn's while staying at the Best Western Plus Bayside. Our sole objective was to find something within walking distance so we would not be forced to hop on yet another California freeway. As we were watching the sunset over the adjacent marina, sipping our huge cocktails and eating our meals, we felt fortunate.... More

We love coming here for lunch. We always sit outside with our basket of peanuts. I still feel weird just dropping the shells! Our favorite is there French Dip with the required Bloody Mary!! We love the little birds and ducks who watch you eat and are hopeful you are messy. Find this hideaway. It will become your favorite as... More

Perhaps it's about generations: My father loved Quinn's, and I like going there as a result. But I cannot say I enjoy the food there with as much gusto as he did. He was a man of the people, and Quinn's serves food of the people. By and large, it is a good value. And the setting is comfortable. Unfortunately,... More

We tried this place for brunch/lunch based on Trip Advisor review and weren’t disappointed, but were pleasantly surprised! This was like some place I ate in my childhood with the old knotty pine paneling and menu with Monte Cristo sandwiches. It has nice views of downtown and Jack London Square from the marina it's on in the Alameda channel. You... More

We had a great time sitting outside on the deck drinking beers and eating peanuts. Great view of Alameda and the channel; perfect for a warm day or evening.

I used to eat here all the time, and I was excited to bring my girlfriends here for lunch. The best part of the experience was our server, Raul. He was accommodating, friendly, prompt and very sweet. We had no problems with the service whatsoever. The food, on the other hand, has taken a turn for the worst. Most of... More
