Editorial reviews from the web (4)

While "the food's quite good" at this midpriced American with a "terrific location right on the water" in the Berkeley Marina (and lots of seafood on the menu), it's the "breathtaking views of San Francisco and the bridges across the bay" that steal the show; though service can be "spotty", fans maintain this locale is "more than just a tourist trap", and is "popular for happy hour" and...

Skates on the Bay Restaurant Review

The seafood goes with the bay views, but turf entrées such as rock salt roasted prime rib are also fair bets. Don't bypass the drinks list --- it features a variety of cocktails and international wines. Weekend brunches feature a Bloody Mary bar: build your own wake-up cocktail with pickled and fresh vegetables, Bloody Mary mix, horseradish and a selection of vodkas.

Locals and splurging UC Berkeley students come for spectacular bay views and fresh seafood.

We went for business and really the views are amazing. You can see the bay and the golden gate. Service is good and food is fair. Probably a bit pricy but i think it's very recommended.

Great View, Inside and Outside

Average Rating

The outside view is spectacular, any time of the year, due to the Bay, The Bridges, and the water. There are huge picture windows to enhance the view. The inside view is also great, because of the raw bar, the decor, and the design. They...
