1. The Lake Chalet 1520 Lakeside Dr, Oakland, CA 94612

Transforming Lake Merritt's formerly dilapidated municipal building, this waterfront, 425-seat seafood behemoth offers oysters, calamari, and other oceanic bites, with a stunning view of the lake. Depending on mood and weather, diners can choose between a fireplace setting inside the grand, white tableclothed dining room, or a dock patio open year-round, located just a few breezy steps from the water. And while fish is the central eat here, more accessible entrees like burgers, chicken sandwiches, and soups are also offered.
