Yankee Pier, a bustling and vibrant seafood house, offers chef Michael Dunn's ocean-fresh seafood "fresh from coast to coast". Local seafood, sourced in accord with the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program, which promotes sustainable practices that are healthy for ocean wildlife and the environment, is presented with a nod toward New England. Live Maine lobsters, fresh-shucked oysters, an array of grilled fresh fish, and beer-battered full belly clams are some of the offerings, along with local produce, house-made desserts, a selection of all-American wines and a full bar.

The bartender (and wait person all rolled into one) was delightful and attentive. That's the good news. Bad news? Food. I ordered scallops on a bed of risotto and the risotto was runny and soupy. Scallops were okay. I ordered a side dish of brussel sprouts and they were horribly over cooked and, frankly, inedible. I think my friend was happy with her fish and chips. My martini was EPIC. Just the way I like it...cold and dry. I wish Yankee Pier could do a better job with the food because I live close by (Orinda) and would definitely go regularly if the food was edible.

As usual, YANKEE Pier was spot on with service and great food. It’s why I go back over and over again.

There arn’t too many great east bay seafood spots outside oakland. This is an exeception. Superb oysters, chowder and shellfish. Wonderful service.

I was disappointed with their clam chowder soup.
I think I may be spoiled since we can get great clam chowder soup in SF. The sole and blackened cod was delicious. I also enjoyed their double IPA on tap!

My friends and I always have a great evening at Yankee Pier. The thing I like most about it is the food is very good and they don't have servings meant for a lumberjack. Also, our server was very efficient and friendly. Good job!
