You can't beet their burgers and fries. Whenever I have out of town guests I always try to take them there for Lunch. Tuesday is even better because they are half price!

I have been to Luka’s Taproom multiple times over the last two years, and each time I have enjoyed my visit. A few things have changed since my initial review in May 2015, and so this is a bit of an update. Luka’s still runs specials Sunday through Wednesday, with different items available each day. It’s half off bottles of... More

I came here abruptly when I heard my co-workers recommending this place to others. To my great surprise, I had a wonderful experience. The staff get five stars for their service. They were very attentive and prompt with my food. I ordered the burger and fries. Luckily I came during happy hour and I ordera vodka cranberry for six bucks.... More

Luka's isn't a large place, and it was pretty loud inside. However, the food was outstanding! I was with a party from work and our food was beautiful as well. The menu had a good amount of variety. I'd definitely go back!

Luka's is a very popular bar/restaurant in downtown Oakland. It is close to 19th St. BART and it is clearly a local favorite. It has great ambiance, especially for the younger crowd. Great bar, good food, etc. It is a high-quality Bay Area establishment. It is also a typical Bay Area establishment in that it is SUPER loud. I went... More

Let’s face it, if you’re in Oakland on business at the convention center it’s hard to navigate and find a nice place you can go for a drink, food or dancing other than always having to go to Jack London Square. Luka’s is the answer. It’s a great bar and a great bar and grill food menu. Good salads, awesome... More

Neighborhood spot. Give it a try. You should enjoy it. Folks assailing enter in small groups. Haven't notice much intermixing of social groups. Yet, you'll find a ton of diverse friend folks kibitzing. Hats of off the the Host, Bartenders, and Waiters/Waitresses. Good natured PEEPs. Thanks Alexande and crew! Stop by. Have a beer. My friend enjoyed their burger. I've... More

I have eaten here at least monthly for several months and found the food and service to be great. The burgers are great and happy hour drinks are a plus. I highly recommend this place if in downtown Oakland. It is close to Bart and Paramount Theater.

Luka's taproom has been opened in 2004 and definitely has a steady clientele. We came here for lunch on a rainy Saturday and they were able to accommodate us. Service was good, the ambiance is California brasserie, and the food is average. I like that they offer a vegetarian burger and you can opt for a gluten free bun. The... More
