Like all restaurants, Kincaid’s is short staffed and service was slow. Saying that, the wait staff and everyone was very apologetic, kept us informed when our meals were coming, so it didn’t really seem like that big of a deal. Everyone was so nice. The food was delicious. I didn’t really like what I had, but that was my own fault for the way I ordered it! I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch, business lunches and a great happy hour!

It was a birthday dinner for a friend. They came through with m request for a birthday candle with the cake! Food was excellent. Been there several times before and I think was better than the last time.

Amazing atmosphere and delicious food! Overall the quality of the food is very good! We ordered the trio, which was amazing, and the calamari, which was good but not as tasty. The cocktails were great too! I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner by the bay!

This is a lovely restaurant to enjoy when staying near the airport. The food was good and so was the service. The host was so energetic and lovely. There was a small mistake with our food and it was seamlessly adjusted. The wine selection is nice and the variety of menu items was great as well. We were there after dark but I bet the views would have been great too.

This used to be one of our favorite places. Things have changed drastically. This was one of the worst meals I have ever had. Everything was bland. They use no seasoning on anything. The vegetables were burnt, raw and cold. My steak seemed to run the gambit from burnt on one end to medium in the middle and medium+ on the other end with no seasoning on any of it. The potatoes they served me were clearly from another service, rubbery, cold, and tough. The only good thing I can say about this experience was the company of my husband and the glass of zinfandel that we ordered. I will not be going back to this place and recommend you avoid it.

Haven’t been here in years. Booked for a date night and the food was delicious and ambiance was nice and quiet. The only complaint I have is that we waited a long time for our main courses to come out. Our reservation was at 8:30, we were seated right away. We got our drinks and appetizers but our main courses didn’t come our until about 45 mins later. I did like that the meals that we split, they did put on 2 separate plates/bowls.

The last several meals have been outstanding. We’ve eaten there over the last 10 or more years, but since reopening after the COVID closure they must have a new chef. Excellent!

I’ve eaten dinner many times at Kincaid’s through the years. I did not enjoy the food this time. My wife’s rice smelled old and she said it tasted funny. The serving size of the fish was also small. My steak was ordered medium, but came closer to well done. I was looking forward to dinner there after being away for a year due to the pandemic, but I don’t see myself going there again.

Kincaid's Bayhouse is right on the water which makes for an outstanding view. The food was excellent as was the service. There is lots of free parking. Good by-the-glass wine list too.

I wanted prime rib, but we had such a bad experience with prime ribs on Mother's day, that my wife wouldn't agree to ordering one. We got the burgers which were very good.

It was great for the most part and the food was delicious. The waiter did spill a drink on the table that splashed onto my wife within the first 20 minutes but a gentleman was there to clean it right up almost as soon as it happened. Wonderful setting and atmosphere so this incident will not keep us away.

Went here to spend my anniversary with my partner and decided to go on the earlier side to see the view and avoid the crowds. We were not disappointed. We got a wonderful table, view and service. The wine and food was exceptional as was our waitress. We are looking forward to returning!

Not enough Help
Food was cold
Fish was not cooked
Was almost finished my meal before I got my wine
Was told the week before of this problem from a friend but decided to find out for myself. Should have listened.
I gave the waiter a good tip as he was trying his best to please everyone.

My wife and have been to Kincaids many times over the years. Too many times to count. Until tonight the food and service was always outstanding. Tonight experience was a fail. My meal was cold. I should have sent it back but didn’t. My wife’s entree was prepared wrong! I’m wondering who is supervising the kitchen. The second attempt was successful but by then I’d completed my cold meal. So much for eating together on our Saturdate…

We had shrimp fettuccine and prime rib. The fettuccine was bland and the prime rib was reheated left overs. The mashed potatoes tasted like they came out of a box x.

Definitely not the Kincaid’s we used to love and enjoy. Still great ambience, but food and service have gone down hill.
