“Charming place along the harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We found the place by a coincidence, a dark evening when looking for some place to eat in Oakland.
Charming place. Fantastic food of all types and nice and attending service. Do I need to say that we went there once more?

“Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Quinn's lighthouse is about a ten minute walk from the Executive Inn and Suites which is rated as the #1 hotel in Oakland. The old but very well kept and beautifully decorated building is located above the water and a small marina with pretty views from every table. The menu is extensive with lots of different foods and daily specials. The chefs do a really good job of both preparation and presentation. The staff were expecially attentive during out visit and prices were reasonable.

We have been here 2x now, food is pretty good, staff is great! Everyone finds something they like in both food and drink. we would go back. They have upstasirs and downstiars, we like downstairs and leave the pub upstairs.

“Very cool local's favorite on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I expected this to be a bit touristy, but it actually felt more like a local's secret. The food was delicious, the atmosphere and service fabulous, and the view overlooking the water can't be beat!

“A little bit okay, a little bit so-so.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Well, the price was good. The atmosphere was good (I ate in the pub). The food was good. Note that I didn't say "great" at any point. I went one time and was okay, but not "delighted".
