Welcome to Quinn's Lighthouse which declares it was established in 1890. Not as a restaurant but as a lighthouse. Now it's a popular watering hole with an upstairs deck that looks over the estuary. This lighthouse was originally at the mouth of the estuary and was moved to its current location in 1965 and became a restaurant in 1984. Apparently the restaurant is named after a British writer, Richard Quinn, who inadvertently became a pirate chaser. And Oakland had a pirate needing chasing named Perilous Pete. A pirate in Oakland? Who knew?
