We found McGee's thanks to a young friend who lives in the area, showed up on a Saturday night with a group of eight, and got right in despite the place being almost full.Drinks are provided by wait staff from the bar, and you check out the menu and specials on a board and then go up to the counter to order your food. It is a pub, but not to heavy on phony decorative touches, but loaded with people enjoying themselves. There were more eaters than drinkers when we were there, but it seems they manage to keep both happy.The menu includes a long list of sandwiches and burgers, plus pastas and fish. The specials were available at reasonable prices.The atmosphere is pub, a mix of drinkers at the bar and families at tables. Kids are welcome as the place tends to draw a younger adult crowd, but we were able to carry on conversations without shouting at each other.Everyone at our table seemed satisfied with their food, which ranged from fish and chips to pasta. I had the basic cheeseburger, which turned out to be the best burger I have had in years. It was cooked perfectly, was large, a good quality bun and a decent )not overwhelming) order of fries. My wife loved her pasta dish, and my friends cleaned their plates -- a good sign.The beer choices were good, as were the wine selections.Reasonable prices, good food and drink. Hard to ask for more.
Located within the Alameda Theatres Cineplex building, Alameda Cinema Grill features eclectic comfort food and a craft cocktail program inspired by Hollywood's Golden Age as well as by the newest local bar trends. Cinema Grill was created with a desire to
We were looking for some food while at the Alameda Theater and unfortunately, popcorn and hotdogs did not seem at all appealing. Nevertheless, the Cinema grill is adjacent to the Theater and we were allowed to go the the Cinema Grill and order fish tacos. We were given a paging device to let us know when the tacos were ready. When the pager went off we walked back to the Cinema Grill to pick up the tacos along with a nifty tray that worked with the Theater seats. The tacos were very good although certainly not the best I have ever had. One of my companions continued to rave about them though.

Enjoyed our sausages on the waterfront. Delicious juicy cooked to perfection sausages with an abundance of sauerkraut and mustard. Also enjoyed fieldwork beer. The German comfort food hit the spot but unfortunately the tables and benches were filthy and sticky. My wife wore white pants and when she stood up to go had a collage on her back side.

After hearing rave reviews of this place for the last couple years, friends and I met here last week. I wasn't expecting much tiki-style atmosphere, having been to another East Bay Tiki bar in Oakland on Piedmont Avenue. Great surprise: Forbidden Island is fantastic!!!! Great energy, much fun, loads of things to see, including a humongous tiki in the small parking area behind the bar.We sat outside on the patio, then took our drinks inside at 9 pm. I've read a few reviews which mentioned poor service, but it must have improved, because everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. We didnt wait long for our drinks or the small plates (fries, guacamole/chips, and fried calamari, which were all fine). The drinks were excellent. I got a painkiller--delicious!!! ( FYI: he painkiller was in honor of the Soggy Dollar Bar in the British Virgin Islands. The bar was obliterated by Hurricane Irma, but it, like all the Virgin Islands which have survived two horrible hurricanes in September, will rise again!!)Thanks to the energetic staff and the bartender who mixed excellent drinks for our little group of old friends.

The menu still covers a variety of great food. The awesome (reliable) sandwiches have disappeared... so sad to not have that deliciousness available to us. Please bring it back! They have added good looking BBQ. Burgers are as ridiculously good and huge as ever. Everything is made to order, so might take a while.

This is a frequent stop for me when I've worked late and would rather have someone else cook for me! Everything I've tried has been wonderful, but a couple favorites are the Greek Wings and the Mac & Cheese & Bacon. :) Yummy! Everyone is friendly - both staff and other customers - and everything is reasonably priced. If you end up over here on the weekend they have brunch from 9am to 2pm, with $10 bottomless mimosas.

East Bay Restaurant Wins in 2006 "BEST WINE LISTS IN AMERICA" Competition. Quinn's Lighthouse Restaurant was awarded the Grand Prize in the Short List Category by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine. The Judges found Quinn's List "SHORT and SWEETâ with well c
Server was great as was the view and the extensive beer on tap menu. Cioppino was not good. Scallops, mussels and clams were good. Shrimp were tough and likely from cooking all day. Calamari was so tough it was inedible. Broth was ok but lacking any real zing. Tons of seafood, though, and I could not finish even though I skipped some per above. Expensive. Wonât be back.
