Kincaid’s is OK, but with some changes and TLC it could be exceptional. They ran out of prime rib at 6pm (which is much too early in the evening). Management should know how to plan to have enough product available for at least most of...More

Great food and awesome location. Been here numerous times. I always get the chowder. Today i got the chopped burger Jr and it was filling, great chuck taste, perfectly grilled on char broiler. I also had jumbo prawns which were tasty as well.

This is a very large restaurant, food was good but let down by having to ask for the happy hour menu 3 times. It would be nice for a lunch as it has nice views of the bay
