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.

The staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating. The service was excellent, the food outstanding, the views stellar, the ambiance warm and inviting. That why I´ve kept returning to this restaurant for special occasions for decades! You can´t do better!

We usually frequent Scott's Seafood Restaurant, which we love. But I have to admit that our food and the ambiance was a bit better at Kincaid's! Thank you for a wonderful Christmas Eve meal. We drive there from Benicia!

Our Oakland Ballet tradition would not be complete without a visit to Kincaid's in Jack London Square. Service and food outstanding. Fun to watch the sunset over the Bay.

Although we had reservations in the dining room, we chose to sit in the bar. The happy hour menu provided us many options. This is the holiday season, so although the bar was full,, service was excellent.

Food was mediocre- wedge salad was bland and didn’t have fresh bacon bits (which was hard to find/an after thought). Had to remind server -twice- that he had not served my cocktail, and the salmon dish was served with plain steamed squash (mostly zucchini) and a few fingerling potatoes! The best part of the meal was the Key Lime Pie!

Food was good, great views of the bay, but the service was awful. We had to ask for everyy- more iced tea, Splenda, bread, ice, or bill, and it took an inordinate amount of time to get it. Our server was friendly but slow. This is in spite of the fact that the restaurant was not that busy. This used to be one of my favorite dinner spots, but after having bad service three of the last four times that I went here, I am done.

This place took me back in a time warp to 1980's Miami with the open seating, great décor and waterfront views. My Wife loved this place. Has a cozy feel. Food wasn't amazing but it was solid enough. Recommend this place for a date.

This was our 4th visit. New condensed menu. Less choices but food seemed higher quality. Nice waterfront seating but they now announce there is a time limit on the tables. The 2 hour window seems sufficient though. Will go back again.

I've been going Kincaid's for many years & enjoy its consistently great menu and cooking. The food is really delicious and they have many specialty dishes that I love, like the artichoke dip appetizer. The service is perfect and I like the open kitchen too. It's always a nice addition to the dining experience to see the food come across the counter to the waiters. The setting, of course, is always beautiful. The restaurant is not pretentious & has a relaxed atmosphere with top-notch food. It's an Oakland gem.

Kincaids - Oakland is loosing it magical dining experience. I was disappointed in the restaurant's new "Tasting Sampler". This used to come and a large 3-tier plate holder with nice sized portion of 3-separate appetizers. It's been reduces to a single plate with a paltry amount of food. For the hefty cost, this was a great disappointment. Usually my martini is filled to the rim of my glass. I had about quarter of an inch of my libation missing.

Some of the dishes are still tasty, but short-cut on the Tasting Sampler is a no go for me.

We normally enjoy Kincaids but tonight’s experience wasn’t the usual. Our dinner came to our table without the salads we ordered. Even though we reminded them that we hadn’t gotten our salad they never arrived. I had prime rib which was the toughest I’ve ever had but good flavor. Go figure. The bill arrived without an offer of coffee or dessert When I mentioned that my prime rib was really tough our server told us that was to be expected because I ordered an end cut. Really?? To add insult the stupid salad was still on our bill. Our intimate dinner didn’t turn out as we planned. Our past experiences have not been like tonight so we will be back but never on a holiday.

This was our second Thanksgiving dinner at Kincaid's/Jack London Square. The Thanksgiving turkey plate (with all the fixings) is as good (if not better) than what we could cook at home -- and there is no clean-up needed! (We even had leftovers for the next day.) Our table overlooked the water/marina and we watched a gorgeous sunset. It was a relaxing holiday experience and we'll be back again!

Shared our family's first restaurant style Thanksgiving dinner at beautiful Kincaid's! The atmosphere was joyous, warm and cheerful. The service was exceptional! Our overall experience was excellent. Kincaid's has been one of our family's favorite places to enjoy each others company and we have celebrated several special occasions here over the years. Kincaid's never disappoints. Special 'thank you' to the chefs and staff for providing a wonderful dining experience.

Happy Holidays!

This was my second Thanksgiving at Kincaid's. It was a lovely time with attentive, good-humored staff. Despite the probably chaos of a holiday seating, we never felt rushed. I don't know how the staff seemed so calm with all of the people there. Your planning was great. I'll be back on another holiday!
