  • "It's the water"

  • Free popcorn and shuffle board!!!
  • Low ceilings
  • Slayer Bar. Only bar I've been to where I can not only play Slayer on the juke box, but no one leaves as a result :) this is a win!
  • Free popcorn
  • great people, cheap drinks, & shuffleboard!!
  • The Kingfish sells Olympia in cans! Fantastic!
  • the bar i wish i had around in college. shuffleboard, sassy bar-babes, loud music. and you can order ethiopian from across the street, which comes in real handy after a few scrimshaws.
  • I live across the street.
  • Good drafts. Great scotch for cheap. Nice staff...crowd - however - is hit or miss.
  • I rate Kingfish highly - one of the best dives in the Bay Area and fantastic for sports.
  • Another classic Oakland dive. Originally a bait & tackle spot, now the perfect place to grab a beer and shoot the breeze.
  • Its been serving a steady stream of heavy drinking locals for long and all the random tickets and crap stapled and stuck to the wall and ceiling are like a geological record of filth and drunkenness.
  • Awesome drinks and the bartender(wish I knew his name)
  • Really Cool place great drinks!
  • Great outdoor space, long neighborhood history and feel. Awesome staff.
  • Great dive bar, love the Estrella special. Shuffleboard table outside isn't as even as the one inside, FYI.
  • There is a strong sense of community at the bar.
