The food was awful. Sent my salmon back twice to be cooked. Husband’s Seafood Salad was limp and soggy. Kincaid’s has really gone down hill. The restaurant looked so old, not updated at all. Blah!!!

Was a place we started going together when we started dating about 20 years ago. Seems since we were there last in Dec 2019 its lacking its luster a bit. Probably due to Covid so hoping it gets a little more love in the coming months. Service was ok but not commiserate to the location, prices or past experiences.

Such a beautiful restaurant, great food, views and people. The ever lovely hostess Joann, is so sweet. We had a new waitress named Danielle. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and we made a few changes and she was able to accommodate them. We started with the salad of greens, candied pecans, pears and blue cheese, my husband had chicken Asiago, mashed potatoes and asparagus. I had blackened sole, a corn/radish succotash and asparagus, and of course their complimentary garlic bread. Can’t wait to go back

Server was excellent. Food was OK and not worth 200.00 ticket for party of 4 with no alcohol and no desert. I mean I ordered fish n chips and daughter order a burger .. this is definitely not right

First time here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great food (including unique flavor of the shrimp and grits) in a nice setting. Wish "living wage" surcharge was simply added on to prices, always feels odd getting tacked on after the fact. Still, it was well deserved by our attentive and pleasant servers. We'll be back!

Kincaids, so beautiful, nice view of bay, beautiful sunset. We have been coming for years, Joanne always elegant hostess. This was our second time having Danielle as our waitress, she’s awesome!! Great food, view, people. Chicken Asiago always great, blackened sole, greens with pears, blue cheese wonderful starter. They always give warm garlic bread

Service was slow due to lack of staff. Had to ask twice to get our drinks, and extra napkins. When the check was dropped off to sign there was no pen - had to flag down another waitress to borrow her pen, our waiter never came back. The overall service was not up to the usual excellent service we were used to receiving in the past.

We got their late in the evening for 8:30pm reservation and they were very busy and understaffed. But all staff were welcoming and never rushed us or made excuses for being so busy. Service was almost great which says a lot about commitment to customers. A great visit and will find a reason to return and support this business.

We had a great dinner. All of our food was excellent. There was a bit of a wait to get everything going, but that is to be expected nowadays. Unfortunately, the non-waitstaff were more attentive to us than our waiter himself. Adrian, in particular was fantastic. He is extremely friendly and personable. We really enjoyed his personality. He's definitely an asset to Kincaid's restaurant. The views and ambiance were very enjoyable. We definitely will return.

Usually the food is really good, but the other night it wasn't. The filet was overcooked and the fish was dry and room temperature. The halibut was prepared incorrectly, and when it came back, we're pretty sure they used the same pieces of fish and placed it on a different plate because the fish was room temp and dry and the potatoes underneath were hot! Not very satisfying to say the least.

The other thing that bothered us was that each car entering the parking lot is stopped by an attendant warning you about car break-ins and not to leave anything valuable in your car! It was nice to have the heads up, but a little unnerving to hear when going into dinner. Maybe a security guard would deter the break-ins.

Everything was great except that our waitress had way too many tables assigned to her. We were happy with her service but could tell that she was stressed and needed fewer table to attend do.

Loved the anniversary dessert and made sure to tip our waitress generously!
