The Lake Chalet Seafood Bar and Grill sits on the shores of Oakland's Lake Merritt. The restaurant is newly remodeled and has a great dock that extends out onto the lake. On sunny days there is no better place to be. The happy hour menu is not only tasty, but inexpensive. Usually there is music playing (live on weekends) and the place jumps. They have craft beers on tap as well.
If you're of the mind you can walk over to the adjoining dock and take a ride on an authentic Italian gondola brought over from Venice and operated by a young family . . . you'll think you're in Venice.
A great escape from the city (without leaving).
