The big draw of this casual waterfront bar and restaurant is that it’s housed in an over 100-year-old lighthouse overlooking a quiet marina in Oakland. The two-story spot serves sandwiches, salads, soups, and seafood like fish and chips in their downstairs dining room. But we like coming here to grab a burger and a beer on their upstairs pub called The Upper Deck. Don’t be surprised if you stay awhile.
