It is what it is...

Yesterday was my first time at Lake Chalet. I'd heard rumors about expensive, bland food - but decided to give it a try. It was taco Tuesday, after all.

On taco Tuesday, you'll find $2.50 taco specials (the chicken was delicious, the shrimp tacos so-so). On this and other days, their happy hour (which ends at 6) also consists of specials on calamari, sweet potato fries, drinks, etc. Pass on the overcooked calamari (my friend has had the same experience with it several times), but the sweet potato fries were excellent.

Lake Chalet happy hour is a seat-yourself atmosphere, since the servers are too busy trying to get the bar staff to pour faster. If you want to sit outside, be European and ask to share a table - since they won't serve people in chairs at the end of the pier.

This is a nice place to take out-of-town guests or a happy hour rendevous, but you have to take it for what it is. Local brewed ales, more of a bar than a restaurant. Not a place to go if you're in a rush. Also, figuring out which dishes are consistently good will greatly improve your experience.

Wait by the Lake

As a frequent patron of Beach Chalet and Park Chalet, I was extremely disappointed in the service and drinks served at this new Oakland location. Do yourself a favor and wait another month or so for management to operate the restaurant smoothly. Nice crowds however the drinks were not consistent. First round was great. Thereafter, the drinks were terrible. Lemonade would have been a better option. Avoid Taco Tuesdays, though the tacos were delicious. The restaurant ran out of these mini tacos as guests begged for more.
Great for mingling. Otherwise, save your time and money.
