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.

First, the food was fantastic, as usual. Our drinks were good but the vodka martini seemed a bit watered down, however they apologized and gave a partial poor to make up for it. Our server though new did a reasonable job keeping up with the flow. This is one of our favorite local restaurants for ambiance and food quality.

I wanted to treat a good friend to a Saturday lunch and decided to take her to Jack London Square. I had been to Kinkaid's for dinner but never for lunch. What a great decision I made. We had a wonderful lunch at a perfect spot by the window. We enjoyed our cocktails, appetizers and main course while the beautiful boats cruised by. Our server Susie was cute and attentive. She knew the menu and offered some wonderful advice. Thanks, Kincaid's! Hope to be back soon :)

Dinner for 2, waterfront dining- excellent choice and the reservation through open table was exactly as I requested!
The food was delicious and served hot, waitress was attentive but not overbearing and she made suggestions and gave her opinion when asked.
Relaxed atmosphere, with excellent waterfront view as the sun was setting.
Prices of the menu items might have been a little steep but I would go there again if I am in the neighborhood.

My meal and my daughter's meal was very good, but my granddaughter's meal had hair in it which was very disappointing. She did get another plate to go because the hair had grossed her out. I would still recommend this place.

We always go to Kincaids for Easter brunch with our family. However, this year the food took too long to arrive well over an hour and we were told the kitchen was backed up. One of our meals was prepaird over cooked. Three of the crab benedic'st had 1 piece of crab. The waitress told the chef and they brought us more crab.

After we shared the over cooked beef , the manager said he would take it back bring another dish by this time we were almost done and my brother in law didn't want the dish. However, it was brought out he tried a few bits and didn't want it.

They did take his dish off the bill but the whole expeience was disappointing.

Decent place. Fried calamari was soggy and oily so I don't recommend. The Eggs Benedict with crab had about 1/2 tablespoon of crab, but the rest was good. Our server was super nice and attentive and the view is very nice. So just OK. Not bad but nothing memorable. I wish Il Pescatore would reopen!

Very accommodating when I needed to add a fourth to my reservation. Waitress friendly, but very busy (Easter Sunday brunch), service slow. Over easy eggs weren't cooked completely (egg white somewhat clear and runny), otherwise meals were delicious. Have been to Kincaid's many times, and have usually had great meal and service.

I've been going to Kincaid's for 20+ years. The food was always very good and so was the service until Friday, March 30th. We had a reservation for 8 people at 630p. We were celebrating my aunt's 62nd bday. After about 1 hour and 45 mins manager Yao Liow asked our party to move from the dining room to the bar area as they needed that particular area for a large party. Keep in mind 2 of my family members were still eating. We should have realized they wanted us to move as the server brought the bill while we were still eating and we hadn't even ordered dessert. My family was upset so we decided to just wrap up dinner and leave. My cousin posted a yelp review regarding our experience and the manager (Yao Liow) responded on yelp that they tried to accommodate us even though we didn't have a reservation. Next time make a reservation and he will ensure that doesn't happen again. Again, we had a reservation which was acknowledged upon checking in at the restaurant. The manager was rude that evening and even more inappropriate in his yelp response implying we didn't have a reservation when he knew we did trying to save face on social media. Regardless, everybody's money is green. You don't ask one party to move to accommodate another party. It was even more hurtful to my family as 8 Black women were being asked to move to accommodate a Caucasian family. I really hope that was just an unfortunate coincidence. Nonetheless, we won't return.

We had a lovely time at Kincaid's. The staff treated us very well, including the member of our party with mobility limitations. The view of the waterfront was perfect. The food was exactly as advertised, well-prepared, and satisfying. We were celebrating one person's birthday, and she declared it her best birthday dinner ever.

The best part of the restaurant was the people. We arrived early and the host held a window table. We wanted to have a drink on the patio, but was told they don't serve on the patio but we could pick up the drinks at the bar and carry them out ourselves. The server was very flexible as to menu adjustments. Good place

I always come here so I pretty much know what to expect. Across the board, a very qualified experience in terms of what I have experienced here before. Only thing that could have been better was my rice for the crab & lobster stuffed sole. Some of the rice was not cooked/was raw, but other than that, EVERYTHING else that was ordered was good. Will definitely still come back. Drinks, apps, and dessert are always good.

Kincaid‘s is a classic restaurant and I’ve enjoyed it for years. Yet the menu and staff need a slight upgrade. Kincaid needs a new vibe or .... we’ll see how it fares with stiff competition all around it.

Our waitress was clearly catering to the two tables to the side of us and ignoring my wife and I. Bad service, ok food, too expensive for what we got. Will not be going back. We complained to the manager. We got an apology. SMH. I would have left a minimal tip except the waitess returned $20s only. She must have thought she earned it, NOT!

The waitress forgot our appetizer. I didn’t care for their version of New England clam chowder. I asked for some fresh sourdough and I got a piece of bread that was pre-baked and buttered, hard as a rock. My entree, the artichoke ravioli with braised short ribs was very bland. The dessert was very chocolatey. No need for the chocolate drizzle on the side. Not much attention from server and took very long to get the check and leave.

I made open table reservations and there was no problem as it was to be a late birthday dinner for our son. We were running late and I called and there was no problem. When we arrived, we got seated and decided to order some starters like oysters on a half shell and fried calamari with drinks. Son had a moscow mule with beer chaser and daughter and I shared a raspberry mojito as we both had an early day the next day.

Both son and daughter ordered the filet mignon with the lobster tail. Husband ordered the pork chops and I had the grilled salmon. All appetizers and entrees were hearty and delicious but the filet mignon could have been alittle more tender. The pork chops were A-ok and grilled salmon very buttery and tender. Service was excellent and attentive and she even remembered to bring a special dessert for the birthday boy! Creme brulee for all to share, yummy! Our son felt very special that night.
