Awesome Place to Eat and Enjoy!
Quinn's Lighthouse and Pub was a great place to eat. Although my group was running late for our reservation, the host was very understanding and kind. We were immediately seated. Our waiter, James, was the best! He was efficient and awesome! This is a great place to eat and enjoy!

A sparkly gem
We were visiting from out of town and wanted to find somewhere to take my sister-in-law for her birthday. What a great find! Ambience at sunset was delightful and all five entrees were delicious. Our waiter noticed us giving cards and brought a hefty piece of delicious cake with birthday candle at the end of the meal. We will go back next visit and suspect our relatives will now have a new go-to spot for family gatherings.

Very Good Restaurant
We went here for my mother's 70th birthday. Three adults and one child. The menu was varied and offered plenty of choices. They also had a good selection of specials. We all enjoyed our food very much. My wife thought her fish and chips could have been better. The fish was just a little chewy, though her chips were delicious.

We had a wonderful early Mother's Day celebration with a waterfront view of the marina ... with great service and attention to detail. We will be back!

A nice Mother's Day luncheon
I came here with 3 other women for Mother's Day. We got a table right by the window and were very pleased. Our food arrived promptly & hot, despite it being busy. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was pleasant, and everyone had a lovely time! I order the half-bucket of mussels New England-style every time I come, and once again, I was not disappointed. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

The French Dip is more like Chicago Beef but it is GREAT

We were visiting the Bay Area and looking for a place near our hotel. We found Quinn's a mile down the street and were pleasantly surprised. The service was great, the view was nice, and the seafood Alfredo was the best I've ever had. In fact, it was so good that we returned the day after and i ordered the exact same thing! It was just as good as the first time. It was really cool to learn the history of the building also. We will miss visiting Quinn's when we get home. Highly recommend!

A great neighborhood spot for a quick bite, or a mores leisurely meal. Food is always good, and service friendly and accommodating, and I will continue to return.

Great service. Friendly atmosphere, and delicious food.

Good food, attentive service
The food was great, didn't mind the peanut shells on floor. Second time I have been here and the leftovers made the perfect lunch for work the next day. Wife loves the clam chowder and I find the appetizer menu and the Doo Daahs to be enjoyably delicious.

Saturday on the Rooftop
I made reservations for three but we showed up with four and they were perfectly accommodating. They sat us downstairs in a nice, old-timey room right by the windows overlooking the water. My grandfather arrived ahead of us and got a spot on the roof. He came down to find us and brought us up to his table. I'm glad he did. There are peanuts on the floor, wide umbrellas, beautiful views.
All of the portions were huge!
None one mentioned if their food was amazing but I think everyone enjoyed what they ordered and they certainly got a lot of it.
The upstairs filled up and people were happy to take our spots when we left. We got there at noon and there were just a few people. By 1:30, it was packed.

lobster salad is best deal!
Quinn's. Best salad is the lobster salad! For 12.95... it tastes fresh and love the tomato vinagrette! Good fish and chips!I feel and so do my friends, best food! And not expensive..service is great! They know you after you come. A few times! Oh, buckets of mussels! Yummy, wine with garlic! My fave, 2 people can share a half...as an horsdeovers...spelled wrong.nothing bad on menu!

Wonderful,attentive service. Love this place!

Excellent as usual
We've been dining at Quinn's for years, and have always enjoy the experience. The food and service is invariably good, and the prices are reasonable

Worth a trip
We found this restaurant when we stayed nearby a few years ago. Now we plan our Bay Area trips around eating here. While close to the Nimitz freeway (880) they are in the middle of a marina with a view of Coast Guard Island. The sunsets can be spectacular.
I love their varied seafood menu-from Paella and lobster lasagna to shrimp salads. My husband likes their steaks and the Cobb salad with chicken. We had planned to try some other restaurants this year, but after one try, we plan to go back every night and will have sampled everything I want to try. Do try their mixed green salad, they add a fruit garnish that is always fresh and tasty.
There is a pub upstairs with almost the same menu. We have not been there.

Delicious and amazing service.
We (7 of us) went here after an A's game for my Sister's birthday. We made reservations for 6 pm but the game ended at 4. We arrived at 4:30 and asked if there was room to sit then. They accomodated us gladly. The service was very professional and attentive. The food was amazing and large portions! We will be going back when in the area!

Almost always good
The balsamic vinaigrette is AMAZING!
The garlic cheese bread is delicious.
About 50% of their food is perfect.
For the other 50%, let's have an example, shall we?
I don't understand the Doo-Dah at all.
Those vegetables do not match the Mexican style accompaniments.
It was just, plain strange.

Enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious!

Nice historical water front place
I have been to the restaurant a few times over the many years of it's existence. It is a historical restaurant nestled on the Oakland Riviera. It has a friendly atmosphere and serves good food. Whether you are there for brunch or dinner I have always enjoyed my meal. We sat next to the window over looking the many yachts that are docked near by the restaurant. As the sunset started...It made for a very calming and romantic dinner.

Brunch @ Quinn's
Sunday Brunch 11:30a-1:30pm was
quiet & relaxed. Brunch menu was tasty,
but while the breakfast selection is small,
but could be quite varied w/ customized
omelettes, eggs benedict & French toast.
The Eggs Benedick w/ Salmon was awesome
Harbor view is great, as are the Mimosas.
Comfortable nautical ambiance, special
place for a romantic meal.

Quinn's has been around for years and though I question another reviewer's term as the Riviera area, its nice, safe, plenty of parking across the street and a great bar and snacks to enjoy the view on the water.

always our go to place
When we have guest from out of town we always seem to find a time to go here for good food and visit time with great sunset too..
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We used Open Table for our reservation. It was so easy and there was a box to type in personal requests. I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday and that I requested a window seat with a view. When we got there, we had the most perfect corner window seat. We were able to see the sun set and watched a few boats go in and out. We never felt rushed...yet the service was excellent. Our waitress was so nice and even offered to take pictures of my huge ipad for me. At the end of the meal, she brought out a delicious slice of cake with a candle. How special that was. Thank you. We will be back again!

Great for a relaxing meal
We've been here several times for lunch and brunch. The food is good but we keep coming back for the ambiance. Sitting at a table overlooking the estuary and watching the boats come and go reminds us of Copenhagen but, fortunately, not Copenhagen prices!
It's the right place for a good meal and conversation!

Great service from the staff, particularly our server. He was energetic and attentive. He made the experience exceptional.

I come here often! B Est lobster salad /chowder /mussels /fish chips in town..had swordfish special one night, split it with a friend...they did it for us in back:)...great service, staff is friendly and attentive! Take all family three to eat!

Another Great Time
As our traditional Turkey dinner with family was postponed until Saturday after the holiday, we went to Quinn's and had their ham dinner on Thanksgiving. We enjoyed a great sunset, excellent service and a very good ham dinner with pineapple glaze, green beans and mashed potatoes.
Quinn's is consistent and has an extensive seafood menu along with traditional American food.Very good beer list and good cocktails from the bar, peanut shells go on the floor of course!
We go to Quinn's a few times a year and enjoy the overall experience at very reasonable prices.
Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Outstanding Seafood Gem
Great service. Moderate prices. Full servings of wine and a perfect Vodka Martini. Quinn's is our new favorite for seafood & steak dining. The old lighthouse setting is very romantic.
