Jack London Square Reviews & Ratings
This place is looking really nice! A friend was coming into the bay area for a few days and asked for recommendations on where to go/what to do. When I suggested this spot in downtown Oakland they said, "Dude, really?" But with all the new restaurants and with the ballpark moving here in the next few years, this place is going to be amazing! Scott's Seafood is amazing and The Plank is a pretty cool spot. Decent views of SF and the port.
Today, they had a festival called Eat Real. They had so many different food vendors. My favorite was the Taiwanese potstickers. I also had paella. It was a beautiful day with lots of people and fur babies. I would recommend coming back here.
Quiet and warm. Went on a sunny day and feeling great! There’s self parking underground and should be able to find plenty of parking. We went a Saturday afternoon and it’s easy to find. They have some sitting areas and it’s just great to sit there and enjoy a lazy afternoon.
Went to Yoshi's and ate. The Tiger Shrimp Tempura was delicious. Marsha Ambrosius had a great performance. Ben and Jerrys ice cream is across the street, so a good place to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The Sunday brunch buffet at Scott's with live Jazz was outstanding! The food was high quality and very tasty with many delicious seafood options like crab cake benedicts, different kinds of salmon, as well as the traditional eggs and bacon. The coffee and free flowing mimosas were great too! And the jazz band made the atmosphere even more charming and pleasant! Will definitely come back!
