    The service was rather slower than what I expected. Took a while for the food and drinks to come. The food (chowder) and lobster was on the salty side.

    I have to say that Kincaid's staff are exceptional. They set the standard as soon as they walk in. I had a special guest with me and they sat us at a beautiful view spot and they accommodated the special requests. We were there when they were slowly taking down the Fisherman's wharf across the street. My guest had gone there many times when it was an up and running spot. Great staff!

    An early Sunday evening dinner proved to be very enjoyable. Our guest had lobster bisque and the crab cakes/seared scallops entree. He said everything was excellent. This from a Massachusetts native where seafood is king, is quite a compliment. I had the lobster bisque and seared opakapaka. The bisque was greatl but too much for me with an entree. Fish was done to perfection. My husband had the French onion soup and prime rib. He said both were very good. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Once the bright sun dropped below the horizon we had a great view of an exquisite sunset and a wonderful view of the harbor.

    The prime rib was as good as usual. The only disappointment was that the salmon (which is usually great) was small and undercooked -- even when served on the cedar plank (which was not hot for some reason).

I don't know her hame, but she was working on 10/21 evening. I've also seen her during lunch hours too. Please commend her for being the "hostess with the mostest'!

    This was my favorite item in this restaurant for a long time, but the last couple of times I was there and ordered the soup, it was not as good as I remembered. The soup is kind of watery and lack the beef flavor... kind of disappointed. Still the best value in town for lunch though.

    We normally go there as a couple and enjoy the prime rib. But this time, we celebrated my daughter's 11th bday. Took advantage of the October Saturday's Happy Hour! So, we sat in the lounge, top floor to the right side. Had the best seats (I feel) in the restaurant for a group of 10 people! We ordered a variety of appetizers, played some table games then ordered dinner. We didn't have to move the party to the dining room as planned, so that was a plus! The food and service were great, like always! The hostess and waitress were both so friendly and patient! Will return again...

    Had a really great time there with a window table where we could see the sunset. The food was terrific, we had the salmon special of the day and a prime rib. The blueberry cobbler for desert was awesome! And all this for free since I had a dinning credit for Kincaids/Ryans from their dining program.

    Although it was lunchtime on a weekend, I made last minute reservations for 2, great choice! Arrived early, no problem, the staff and atmosphere inside the place was so relaxed. As often happens, we ran into friends there. The food was perfect as usual, and Judy was warm, friendly, and attentive. This is our go-to spot for dinner, suspect it will be the same for lunches in the future!

    We have been going to Kincaid's for many years. They've renovated the inside making it brighter and giving it a modern feel versus the steakhouse ambiance it once had. Check in was easy and friendly. There were the usual specials listed on the menu and they all look great. I really enjoy their clam chowder. It's not too thick like some other places. Plus, it's served very hot which I also enjoy. My friend had the trio and while it was nicely prepared, he mentioned that the steak was not the best. I had the opah which was outstanding. Our server was attentive and professional. She was so friendly. Although the cocktails are on the expensive side, we will most certainly be back. Be prepared to drop some money on this place.

This dinner was our typical experience of good food and service, with prompt seating for our 6:45 pm reservation.

    I have had lunch several times at Kincaid's and have always found the food and service to be very good. On this visit I had the steak salad and it was probably one of the best steak salads I have ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection and the greens were fresh. My friend and I ended up talking for 2 hours and the staff continued to refill our tea and water. Very pleasant experience.

    As soon as I got the email giving me money on my card for my birthday I told my husband I wanted to go. The food was great as usual and the waitress terrific. When she found out my birthday was this month and that I would be in California she insisted on bringing me a birthday small creme brûlée. That's why I love Kincaid's. Always treated great and good food as well. Hope all the new building in that area doesn't affect it. It's one of my faves.
