Co-worker and I dropped into his favorite spot for fish and chips in East Oakland. I went for a seafood soup, that was less flavored than I prefer. My co-worker set aside a taste of the coleslaw that is a side of the fish and chips. The coleslaw prompts me to return for the fish and chips...BTW, the peanuts were... More

Ate at Quinn's while staying in Oakland on a business trip. The restaurant has two levels with plenty of views overlooking the marina. It's one of those fun time places where they give you peanuts & you throw the shells on the floor. The food & beer options were good, and they even had live music. I would visit Quinn's... More

Quinn’s Lighthouse Restaurant and Pub has been on my long list of restaurants to go visit for quite a while. I had looked at the TripAdvisor recommendations, and was a bit surprised that a place this high on the list had eluded me for so long. My wife and I were out enjoyed sunshine after what seemed like an endless... More

The waiter seated us within minutes of arriving and knew about all the items on the menu. It seems that he tried every item listed over his years working there.

Visited Quinn's Lighthouse on two occasions whilst staying nearby at the Bayside hotel. Our first night we eat in the Restaurant on the first floor and had a fabulous meal, sharing platter of Nachos to start followed by Fish & Chips and a Burger for main course. Food was plentiful, hot and came out really quickly which was ideal for... More

Used to row on a rowing team, and we'd always end up at Quinn's! Good pub food, good turkey burger and fries, drink beer and eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. Outdoor tables on the water in summer, you know the joint. We've all been there. It wouldn't be as good without the waterfront...

For the best meal try the salmon special! It's great! The waitress was great and wings are the right spice!

I reserved based on reviews in TripAdvisor. When we arrived we were met by a man who seemed to be in a bad mood. We had a reservation and arrived early. We were taken to a table in the back of the restaurant. I ordered one of the evenings specials, swordfish. The original waiter was pleasant and nice but the... More

Went here before a warriors game and enjoyed the cool vibe of the place in the upstairs pub. The service was friendly and quick and the menu was vast. Everything we ordered was great and the portions were huge -- too big actually! Would go again!
