A word from Kincaid's Bayhouse - Oakland
Located on the waterfront in historic Jack London Square, lies Kincaid's Bayhouse. Truly, today's interpretation of a traditional Fish, Chop and Steakhouse. One will find the food and beverage to be the finest available and where possible, prepared and served in the tradition of an old-time Fish and Steakhouse. Fresh fish flown in daily, prime select cuts of beef, along with signature dessert items are just a few reasons that set Kincaid's apart from other restaurants.Continued

  • "Excellent food, service and atmosphere! I requested a table by the window and it was provided. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Easter early dinner, great views, sunny, delicious starters like the Brie dish and Crab Artichoke dip are fabulous! Very friendly staff. Disappointed though, as they ran out of the Lavender cosmo by 4:00, help :(. Will definitely go back many times more!"

  • "We went for a family Easter dinner (10 People) and there were several other large 8-12 groups there. Service was very responsive to our needs and the food arrived in a timely manner. The food was very good and attractively presented and when we asked to split an order it came to the table already plated in separate plates. Our waiter also checked one order to assure that it did not contain a food allergen."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food ambience are excellent. The employees multitask with many customers and still make you feel like you are the only one in the restaurant. The water views are all around your seating area. "

  • "The place seems a bit old, but the views are great. The food and drink is ok, but the main reason to visit are for the views. "
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Filet mignon was just ok. Definitely not worth $47 cut. Lobster tail was good and worth the price. Overall, my dinner for 2 was over $200 but not worth it. I've had better meals where steak is at $25-30 price point."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We love Kincaid's. We come to Oakland once a year for the sailboat show. Our kids live in the South Bay so they all come up and we have dinner together. It is a very family friendly place with a child friendly menu and the staff is always fun and helpful."

  • "We had a 6:00 reservation. When we arrived, I told the hostess that we had concert tickets, and needed to be out by 7:30. We did not get seated for another 20 minutes. If they can't seat you at the reservation time...don't take the reservation. There were also many empty tables, so that made me think "what's going on?" I mentioned to the waiter, who was very nice, that we were now a bit rushed. The hostess had not told him that we were on a time limit...not good communication... He moved things along as fast as he could. The dinner was good, not great. I didn't feel that this experience would make me come back again. For the prices charged and the quality of food, this should have been much better."

  • "Great food Service ok Wine list could be much better... Not cheap but neither super expensive"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time. The boneless short ribs were very tasty and you could cut them with a fork. The other parties with us enjoyed the tenderness of the lobster and the favors the herb stuffed chicken."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Entrees were very good. Desserts were even better. Service was a bit slow. Salads came before appetizers."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The Friday service was very poor. I'm not sure if it's because it was booked through open table or there were just lack of staff working that day. We were seated fast but after that everything fell apart. The server came and kept saying she'll be back. We got our drinks the same time we got our food and our bread, which was about 10-15 min when we got seated. The place was busy but what do they expect it's Friday and a gorgeous day. The food was good but Very disappointing service."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Kincaid's consistently delivers in all aspects of the dining experience from the front door greeting to departure. The food is superb and the menu offers a variety of options. The manager doesn't stand around observing, he is always on the floor helping his team. We've sampled everything from fish tacos in the afternoon to filet and lobster in the evening and a variety of rotating specials. Can't go wrong with this establishment."

  • "So, a friend says steaks in Oakland? There are no steakhouses in oakland. Try Kincaids! Avoiding a long drive to sf in the rain, we decide on kincaids. BAD choice. Not very crowded, but took 20 minutes to get drinks. 10 minutes later we order. My medium steak was well done. Her salmon was very over cooked as well. My steak had so much salt on it that it was basically the only seasoning I could taste. (I understand there are salt crusted steaks that do not have an overpowering salt taste after cooking so obviously my steak was seasoned after cooking) Then had a disjointed bananas foster desert. All components were separated on a plate?? Never seen that before. Basically a poor dining experience."

  • "The food is always top notch, service amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. Their lobster tail, prime rib and the artichoke crab dip is to die for...not cheap but worth the price!"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Service staff on top of seating ! Waiter's can't wait to take your order & get food coming so they can get you filled up and out the door a.s.a.p. - restaurant very noisy due to open floor plan - be prepared to yell to communicate with any others at dinner. Besides that food pretty decent but ambience of restaurant - not quite - bar scene, they got going on."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Had an early dinner with my husband. We got a prime table next to the windows overlooking the water. Pleasant service. We shared a baked brie - crusted w macademia appetizer: Yum!! I had "Moroccan salmon" which had a couscous side and interesting garnishes and spices. Perfectly pan-seared, fresh and delicious. He had prime rib which was well-trimmed and tender. The only drawback - and it's a small thing - I wish they served fresh-baked bread instead of garlic-butter based foccacia. The foccacia was just too rich and too garlic-y. Overall, though, a wonderful dinner and we'll be back."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Excellent host upon entering but the experience quickly changed when other guest where seated directly beside us. The guest were energetic with loud voices which interfered with my experience. A possible solution could have been to seat guest further apart since the restaurant was ⅓ full."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We had a wonderful, unrushed and delicious dinner at Kincaids. Our server was attentive and very polite. We had a small child in our group and he was treated with great care and we were not "banished" to a corner with him. We had a great seat with a view of the water. Dinner was relaxed and the ambience was wonderful."

  • "Awesome on each and every visit! Service, food, ambiance, etc.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On-line reservations were very user-friendly and we were given our window seat request within a 45 minute window. AWESOME!!!!"

  • "We have been to Kincaid's multiple times, over the years, though not recently. We decided to dine here for our 20th anniversary, as this is where we made our engagement official. The food is good, the ambiance nice, and the service very good. It is a classic, old standard. Oakland's scene is boomig. Kincaid's may get forgotten if they are not careful."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "This restaurant has really fallen off. Food was very bland and wasn't well prepared. Should have known when we walked in and the place was basically empty on a Friday night!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Greatness is what you will get from Kincaid's. From the staff down to the ambiance, everything is flawless. If you haven't been ever been, you're missing out. If it is has been awhile, make it happen. You will not be disappointed unless you don't like great food, smooth alcohol and friendly service."

  • "The evening was fine, except that my wife's dish was sadly unsatisfactory. The Manager was very cordial and sought to rectify the situation. Given our disappointment, we received an apology and it was accepted. I do think that this was an isolated occurrence, but was nevertheless disappointing for my wife's birthday."

  • "We recently had dinner here for my birthday. We had a large group of 12 but the food and service was excellent. The coconut shrimp and teriyaki beef tenderloins is to die for! We really enjoyed ourselves and the view is such spectacular. This place is just a gem!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This is a staple for me in Oakland's Jack London Square. Food is amazing, clam chowder and artichoke dip are awesome and the popular rock salted prime rib never dissapoints. I've never had a dessert here that i didn't enjoy. Amazing service, knowledgeable, attentive and responsive all around. Romantic dinner, family outting or group get together, Kincaid's is easily one of my favorites."

  • "The service was poor. The drinks were not made as requested. The food was substandard. Very overpriced. Would not return."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The food is still good but not as GREAT as it used to be. Seems like over the past few years all the recipes have slightly changed. The crab cakes (which they used to win "Best of the Bay Area" have radically changed and not for the better and the Caesar salad is now a watery-vinegary dressing that does not resemble or taste like creamy Caesar at all and the romaine lettice is very bitter. I still go there from time to time hoping it returns to it's past glory; but more often I end up at Skate's or Palomino's as their classic recipes have not changed."

  • "I requested a table at a window facing the water. Unfortunately, they started to seat us at table across the aisle for an empty table next to the window. However, they did honor my request and seated us at the empty table"
