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.

Amazing food and service! Huge fan of their shrimp and grits, oysters and artichoke dip for appetizers. As for meals, everything is good!

Mediocre food and inattentive service, never acknowledged it was my best friend's birthday, made us wait 20 minutes between his appearing again. For the very hefty price tag and given so many other options in Oakland/East Bay, I would definitely not return.

Took them almost 30 mins to seat us and they seated several tables ahead of us even though we had a reservation, but gave us a free appetizer and apologized for the wait. Wait staff was friendly but not super knowledgeable about the food. You’re paying for the view because the food is mediocre. Except for the crab dip, that was delish!

We came here to celebrate my dad. It was a casual yet elegant place! Perfect for a family or group of friends. The food was classic and tasty even my 6 year old had a wonderful grilled cheese! We have been coming here for years and will continue to return!

Great food! Great service! Great seats! It was a perfect spot to take my mentees (high school students) to learn about fine dining and ambiance! Watched a couple having a romantic lunch and a large group celebrate someone's birthday. Our waiter was on point and even supported my special request. Overall it was an excellent experience for me and my students!

When we arrived before our 6:00 reservation we were told to wait. After about 10 minutes we were seated. We had a nice view. The wait staff was prompt and friendly. We order appetizers and tea. They came out along with some bread. The bread was great. The oysters were as well. Cesar salad had croutons that could break your teeth but whatever. We ordered our meals. My husband ordered Prime Rib. I ordered Peppercorn Crusted NY Strip Steak. Unfortunately we were both disappointed. The prime rib was rubbery and had little to no flavor. The NY strip had no peppercorn flavor at all. When the waitress returned and asked about our food, We politely told her. She offered to fix things but boy did she certainly have an attitude change. We did enjoy the dessert.

We don't get to go out very often (once or twice a year as we need a special caregiver (nurse) to attend to our severely handicapped daugnter. I had made the reservation early and was looking forward to a table on the water. We were not given one and asked to be moved. The staff and host were incredibly acommodating and got us a table on the water! What a great experience! Thanks to all who helped us have a special night out!

I went with my boyfriend for a belated Valentine’s Date. It was absolutely delicious. I got the prime rib and we shared the chocolate indulgence cake. Incredibleeeee.

The servers were so kind and accommodating. It definitely feels like a place I’d love to return to for a future romantic night with my partner.

We also went before dinner rush, and got an amazing seat by the windows with a beautiful of the sunset over the water!

Made reservations for Valentine’s Day. Seated on time at a nice window table. From the Valentine’s Day menu; we had the oysters which were tiny, the lobster bisque was good but not great, the 12oz prime rib was ok but more like medium rare than medium and the sides were very over cooked. Chocolate cake dessert good but again average. Service was friendly but rushed and forgot multiple things, also served the wrong wine. Overall disappointing, wouldn’t come here again on a holiday, seems like the quality is affected when it’s too busy.

Had a lovely Valentine's dinner, her lobster tails were fabulous. Service was a little uneven as both the appetizer and the soup arrived at the exact same moment, then we had a long gap until the main course.

Had cedar plank roasted steelhead. Was fresh and perfectly cooked. Delicious! Sides of mixed vegetables were bland. We couldn’t even tell what some of them were. Beets? Rutabaga’s? Had 2 cocktails and the glass wasn’t full on either one. The stem on one glass was sticky and the drink had obviously spilled. The cocktails are one of the reasons I come here. They are excellent. I just want the full glass I’m paying for. I will definitely be back. The fish alone is worth it and I think they just had an off night.

Greeter and wait staff a bit preoccupied and greeter acted a bit inconvenienced when the restaurant was almost empty. Requested a window seat 4 weeks ago and even though there were empty seats was not accommodated. Food is always great! More expensive than I remember.

Kincaid’s is a 50 minute drive with no traffic but as usual the whole dining experience was top notch. Dining on the waterfront always adds extra pizzazz.

This restaurant operates ONLY because of its location. We attempted to check-in but no staff at reception for 10 minutes! Unacceptable. Next hurdle--our server must have been new and overworked. Terrible service.

I have written this restaurant off regardless of its location. The food was adequate but not enough to go back due to understaffed restaurant

10+ minute wait for a 5:30 reservation when tons of tables were empty
HORRID (mostly non-existent) service - we were seated at a server-less table, with servers and bussers passing us for 15+ minutes never caring that we had yet to be greeted. Another 20 mins to get drinks from order. Food took longer. Sat in front of plates to be cleared for way too long.
INCORRECT ORDERS - drinks came out wrong
MISLEADING MENU - kids pasta was brown (whole wheat?) which was summarily rejected by said kid because the "noodles were wrong" - seriously, do not serve whole wheat noodles for a kids menu without noting as such
INCONSISTENT FOOD - aged wagyu steak arrived well done (WTF?!?!), potato fritters were ice cold in the middle, beans cooked to death, Brussels sprouts undercooked, carrots overcooked...
NICE VIEWS

We will never dine here again - way too many options and way too little time to waste
