Arrived for a late lunch. Not too busy at the time. Waiter was a little slow getting our drink orders. When we received our lunch after some time conversing, a friend's meal was properly cooked and another found broken shells in her lunch plate. Food is normally very tasty and service quick so maybe just short staffed. Would return and... More

Nice place, restaurant on first floor and a bar on second floor, both with marina view. Great mussels and clam options, good food with honest price, and good service!

It's an old lighthouse that's been moved to this spot, the spot is right on the water, in a hidden and not well known part of Oakland. We eat here several times a month and have never had a meal we didn't like. This is not your fancy place, down to earth place that serves really fresh seafood, no frills... More

From a slightly more formal approach, the main dining room was great, good views, excellent wait staff and very good food. Another night we ate in the Pub upstairs and the food remained the same very good quality and service, spot on. The views here at sunset are excellent. The lighthouse reminds me of another time, and fun for food.... More

Although a little out of the from the main Jack London area, this is a great place for a beer and peanuts (you can throw the shells on the floor) To great burgers and sandwiches to full meals like jumbalaya. Seating inside and outside, upstairs or down. Great food and atmosphere with good service and reasonable prices.

Peanuts on the floor, turkey burgers and french fries, ouside deck on the water, it won't win awards for fine cuisine but you will have a fun lunch and a beer in a casual atmosphere.

I had the tuna melt, delicious, generous portion. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Price was accurate and expected, got a discount for staying in local hotel.

The location is great and the building is really cool. Great for tourists. Service was exceptional. Even after they closed and we were still chatting away they told us to take our time and we never felt rushed. That said, the food was just average and I wouldn't go again. Very diverse menu.
