Perched behind a motel parking lot over the Oakland estuary, this casual, low-slung seafood house has more to offer than you might expect: patio dining, waterfront vistas, a rollicking live music scene, and food that occasionally transcends the perfunctory chowder-and-calamari menu. Freshly caught fish is expertly grilled, broiled, or blackened; the linguine with fresh clams is rich and garlicky; the walnut-studded brownie is a decadent, delectable dream. Although the gloppy clam chowder is best avoided, the bright, refreshing mango mojito makes an ideal meal-opener.
