Scott's Seafood has been serving our family for generations. We know them for their abundance of fresh Seafood that tastes like they went and caught it themselves. They have a wonderful menu, great service, and views that make this a one of a kind experience. Always an excellent choice.

For Oakland, this was a nice setting. Our server was attentive and there when needed. I had a mixed seafood entrée with rice but the seafood was totally covered with a heavy sauce, so couldn't taste the food. Average.

I ate here with a large group. The atmosphere is nice but the food is very pricey. I ordered the blackened fish and it was not that great. It was "too blackened". Most of the group said their food was good but too expensive.

Husband and I dined here on date night. The crab and avocado salads were delicious. The live jazz was very nice too.

A business anniversary celebration was held at Scott’s in Jack London Square and I was very impressed with the service and food particularly considering that we were a group of about twenty. The ahi and salmon tartare appetizer was a standout as was the crab and avocado tower salad, a very pretty creation . The spinach and walnut salad and... More

the menu and preparations are like the 1960's. Bland and expensive. The service was fine. The atmosphere was predictably a pier restaurant from the past. What a waste of a great location.

Overpriced uninspired food and bad cocktails. As a local here in Oakland please do not waste your valuable vacation time and money here. Oakland has much so better to offer.

We've been a few times over the years and feel no need to return. The location is lovely along the water, but there are better restaurants in the same vicinity with similarly excellent views. The food is average and it feels like you're on a cruise ship, instead of in a spectacularly vibrant foodie city such as Oakland. The service... More

A beautiful location on the water in Jack London Square. The calamari is superb as are all of the seafood dishes at Scott's. I love coming here as the service and food are always impeccable!

Mixed emotions. We sat on the patio for lunch with a fabulous view. The food was very good, open-faced salmon sandwich was big and the proscuitto-wrapped stuffed shrimp salad was excellent. The mark-up on wine however was ridiculous. A $17 bottle from any grocery store priced at $54? Service was friendly but very slow even though there was no-one there.
