This is a great find if you want a delicious breakfast! It's a no frills type of place but the food is great. Make sure you get there early because the line will get long however it's worth the wait.

We drove through Oakland on our way to Yosemite. This was a great place to get some food fuel in for the journey. A tasty breakfast was just what we needed and that's exactly what we got here!!

Good atmosphere and wide selection on the menu. Had the waffles which were very good. All our group of 6 enjoyed their meals. Good service but go early to avoid the wait.

We were here 24 years ago the first time on our first anniversary. We are back today celebrating our 25th. The place hasn't changed. You wouldn't expect to find a jewel like this in the heart of a produce district, but it's been here for a long time and is still one of THE BEST places to come for breakfast... More

I enjoyed a fantastic crab omelette, packed with Dungeness crab. For the same price I also could have had a ten ounce steak and eggs! Huge portions, reasonable prices (Oakland, right?) and great service. Really interesting warehouse space with three levels of dining, which means no one is waiting very long. We had a view of the kitchen where they... More

Oakland Grill is popular neighborhood hangout tucked in among Oakland Produce District warehouses and just a short walk from Jack London Square. On weekends at brunch time you're likely to have a 20-30 minute wait for a table, but it's worth it. They serve a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes. I'm a habitual eater of their Benedict dishes with... More

My wife and I took our son to lunch at the Oakland Grill. Classic diner fare with very friendly staff. We had soup, hamburger and Caesar salad. All very good!

With all the changes happening in Oakland, it is a relief to know that the produce warehouses of Jack London Square are still going strong. And in this area is another standby--the Oakland Grill. I had not been there in years until yesterday, when I met a friend for lunch. The menu is pure comfort food. I ordered the turkey... More

You could tell this was going to be good by the wait. We were not disappointed. The food was fresh, unique and delicious. I had a strawberry mimosa too. yum

The breakfast is just OK, but we do come here probably once a month for breakfast. Its close, easy and pretty fast. The food and service is just so so.
