The Yacht Club Dining Room, located on the main floor, offers a quiet and relaxing dining atmosphere overlooking the Embarcadero Cove Marina.
Extremely homey and full of locals, with peanuts on the floor and state flags on the ceiling in the upper bar floor. A huge menu, and we liked everything we tried (burgers, coconut shrimp, salads, soups). We went late, when the more formal dining room was closed, but service was attentive and the same full menu was available. A great find!
First time here...found this place on Open Table....date night with some friends and looking for something close to Paramount Theater for the Keith Sweat, Ginuine, and Jon B show. Based on others review we made reservations...great choice!! We had the window seating with good ambiance.The staff were all pleasant and our waiter was knowledgable.The seafood was so good, definitely a return visit!!!
One of our favorite restaurants. Excellent food and service. We recently had lunch. Although the place was busy we were able to have a quiet conversation and delicious meal.
The restaurant serves reasonably priced and delicious food with big portions, each plate enough for two. The interior looks a bit outdated, but it's cozy in there.
I have been coming to Quinn's Lighthouse Restaurant since the 70s. It's a fun place to dine outdoors and watch the sunset on the water. It's also a cozy location with good seafood selections. I would recommend this restaurant for parties and small group events. Many families come here to dine and celebrate special occasions.
I loved the food and the view. It is right on the water. I really enjoyed it there.
Full dining room at 6:15 pm and glad we had a reservation. Very busy and a bit louder than previous visits, but simply a noisy party. Server did a great job managing tables. Have a sincere apology and bowl of chowder while we waited. It really wasn’t that long, but a great gesture.
Dinner was great and we saved room (only ate half my meal) for some delicious lemon cake. Great place and always a pleasure to return. Thank you
We, a party of four, ate a full three-course meal before going to see Elton John at Oracle Aerna. No rush, very professional and friendly service from James.
Interesting fried ravioli appetizer with a great marinara dipping sauce. Good shrimp with the Shrimp Cobb Salad. Excellent lamb shank, a lot lighter sauce, much preferable to how heavy it could have been. We shared a wonderful chocolate bread pudding.
We went for the fist time last Friday for a before game (Warriors) dinner. It was great. Great service, food was delicious and cocktails were super! Nice cold perfect dirty martinii's !! Thanks for starting our evening with a great experience
Quinn's brightest feature is their people. I requested a table with a view and let them know I would be with my 90 year old dad who depends on a walker. They have a lift for the physically challenged. There is a bell to call for help and they came right away. They seated us at the window on the first floor. The service was great! The food was good... Clam chowder, salad and even at least one vegan option. It was a comfortable and tasty lunch! Thank you, Quinn's!
The food was good. Nice table
Good fish good variety great vibe. Quinn's is a bit funky but that adds to the charm.
Awesome service. Can’t wait to go back
We ate a midday meal here Christmas Day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. One member of our party needed to use the lift to access the restaurant which worked well. We were seated immediately in a good location. The view and ambience were great and the food outstanding. We were pleased to be able to order off the regular menu. The prices were reasonable for seafood and the nautical atmosphere added to our experience.
We had a long standing reservation, arrived 15 minutes early, when seated were told to hurry because the kitchen was closing in ten minutes. The food was mediocre and expensive. Take-home boxes were piled in the middle of our table while we were eating. We were never offered dessert.
Great food with lots of choices. The service was excellent and the view was relaxing and romantic. I am not from the area; but I will definitely make it a pit stop if I come back to Oakland!
Our favorite view in Oakland! Good beers, good food. Baby lobster pasta was delish! Steak was good too. Alfredo pasta was a bit too saucy, but not bad. Definitely will be back!
Four of us came for Sunday brunch in the attractive downstairs area. Three of us had eaten there several years ago upstairs. Food was great and attractively presented. The manager was also our bartender and waiter. Very attentive and patient. We had a great time and will definitely not wait long to return. Highly recommended.
The food was great, and the service was very good. Since it was mid-day, they let us stay at the table without trying to get us out of there, so we had a chance to chat - some of us hadn't seen each other in months.
We have been coming here for years. One of our favorite places!! We brought our family members who had never been and they loved it too!! The food was good, the service was good and we were able to sit and visit.
An old stand by that never fails! Reliable food, varied menu, excellent service.
On the water. Excellent food with outstanding service.
One of favorite local spots with a view of downtown Oakland, Coast Guard Island, and SF. Always great to sit outside on the deck on a beautiful day to get an organic dose of Vitamin D. Upstairs is more casual, downstairs is formal with white table linens. Parking is plentiful, be sure to see Ms. Liberty, floating flotilla of boats and a few felines about.
Luis, our waiter is always on top of our dining needs and always aim to please.
Great food, excellent service. Very accommodating. An Oakland hidden gem!
Excellent service and really nice atmosphere. Food was tasty and generous. Enjoyed our visit
Food was mediocre but service was great.
They went out of their way to accommodate our mobility challenges
The drinks were great
Thank you, Grady, for giving us a bigger table. Our server, James, was fantastic!
Understaffed and out of Thanksgiving turkey. Food very mediocre
We enjoyed our meal, food and staff were great. The ambiance was nice and my grandson enjoyed the animated fish tank and the “airplanes”.
Great service, romantic bay views. The upstairs pub area is great for a quick drink or lunch, they serve shell peanuts that you can toss the shells on the floor. Downstairs is cozy dinning, they can book pretty fast so i suggest making a reservation.
Unfortunately I will not be returning. I use to dine here before every Oracle event I attend. Service was bad from the door on up. Once we were seated in our corner we were totally ignored. I was totally disappointed, being I had never experienced that type of customer service at this restaurant before. No table bread, cold food, weak cocktails. Didn't feel like I was at the same restaurant.
Great views and excellent food and service, always a good time
We went there for lunch and were pleased that they noticed immediately that we needed a bit of assistance with their handicap-accessible lift for entering the restaurant. The food was good, the staff very warm and welcoming. The menu featured items not always seen, such as chocolate creme brulee. The one suggestion would be that you should tell them if you wish your bread warmed.
This was a birthday celebration with my girls, then shopping adventure near by. Great choice
really enjoy this place every time i go there. its a great location, good food, waiters are amazing and so nice, and well its just a great overall package.
I particularly enjoy going for lunch or very very early dinner so I can sit out on the deck and enjoy the wonderful view of the boats and water and island.
Had a great dinner as always. Service was amazing (I believe our waiter was named James) was very nice and informative. The seafood ravioli was AMAZING!!!!
Crap cakes were just ok. I had them here before and they were better previously.
We frequent Quinn's and always enjoy the food & service. This time though our service was a tad slow and the waitress got one of our orders wrong and seemed to he a bit forgetful.
