Quinn’s Lighthouse
  1951 Embarcadero Cove (16th Ave. exit off I-880).  Quinn’s operates out of the remodeled Oakland Harbor Lighthouse in an industrial corner of town.  Built in 1890 and replaced by an automatic beacon in 1966, it was purchased from the Coast Guard for just $1 and moved here in 1965 by the world’s largest ocean-going crane.  The novelty of the setting makes dining here fun.  Roasted peanuts are complimentary in the casual Upper Deck Pub, and, to the delight of children, it’s okay to throw the shells on the floor.  Relaxing on the upstairs deck overlooking the quiet estuary with a fancy drink and some garlic bread is highly recommended.  The menu in the downstairs Yacht Club Dining Room includes seafood, pastas, and a variety of burgers, as well as a delicious jambalaya.
