Biggest plus to this restaurant is that it is inside the airport Hilton with very little else to choose from nearby. The food is average and the prices are typical of airport hotel chains in that they are inflated due to the convenience factor. The atmosphere is typical of a sports bar and the food selections are limited to mostly... More

crowded bar, took a lot to get the server's attention even though he knew us and knew we liked to move fast.

Although this is the only restaurant in the Hilton Hotel near the Oakland Airport, the emphasis is on Sports and Bar. It is very casual dining and the menu is limited to sandwiches and very light dishes. The décor is very simple. We arrived at the hotel late and therefore had to dine late. The service was a little slow... More

It was noisy, as there were people staying there for a ball game. But the food was good, if pricey, and we didn't have to leave the hotel. The only issue we had was when getting ready to leave. Our server had disappeared, and we waiting a long time before finally getting another server to locate the ticket for us.

They find ways to make this food bad. The menu descriptions are not accurate. For instance one of my meals was nachos. Description did not describe that they use the fake melted cheese.

Ate here as we were staying here and didn't have a car. Unfortunately, the Raiders were playing. The place was swarmed and overrun. Not a chance of getting anyone's attention, much less a seat. Finally we were seated in an adjoining restaurant. Cold, barren, poor service. Food was a bigger disappointment. I ordered a quesadilla. How can you possibly mess... More

We found this venue was out only choice while staying at the Hilton Oakland Airport. Weekend brunch runs out of food close to closing time and weekday mornings, breakfast menu comes on at 10 AM, a bit late for early travellers. Good service and lots of seating.

We brought 20 people during the week at happy hour time and there was not a single special! Their glasses of wine start at $10.50 for a decent pour which is ridiculous during happy hour for a $2.99 bottle. The food was decent and they had popcorn for free. The atmosphere was a little stale. The waitress was sweet and... More

somewhat expensive. A sandwich with a glass of beer for 30 buck including tip is in my opinion a little steep

The sports bars seems to be the main dining area for the hotel. Went in quite early after a long flight to the US. Wandered around a little before a waiter showed us to a table. Nice guy but not very attentive which is unusual for the US. We ordered our food and it was OK standard menu really. It... More
