Although I have lived in berkeley and often go to the marina, I never went to Lordship's as it always seemed a little strange (maybe the layout, or that it seemed antiquated). But I ended up having my wedding reception there and reserved a large room looking full out onto the bay. The service and the food were outstanding and the pricing was very reasonable. There were fine with our bringing in live music, and let us have plenty of time to add decorations to the room. Highly recommended!

We've gone to HS Lordships restaurant at the end of the Berkeley Marina several times over many years, about once every five years or so. This is probably the least expensive, best value restaurant on the marina, with fantastic views of the Bay, the Golden Gate bridge, the Bay Bridge, etc. - especially if you go for the $20. 3-course Early Bird dinner. I'm happy to report that the food has actually gotten better over the years, and our party very much enjoyed our clam chowder, salmon/prime rib and cheese cake while we gazed out at the scene of seagulls, windsurfers, surf, etc. If you don't mind eating early (4:30 pm to 6 pm) you can get a fabulous table with panoramic views, and a really nice dinner for quite a reasonable price. It's the perfect place to bring out-of-town guests. Enjoy!

Right on the water :) Beautiful!
I met my Aunt whom I hadn't seen in 2 years for early dinner. At first glance it looks a bit run down, however what it lacks in paint it makes up for in service & view. The service was great & the view.... ahhh. We were able to eat, chat, and watch the crazy swimmers in wet suits and wind surfers right out side the window. Great Bay view.
Loved it!

It's an older, strangely-configured restaurant inside with separate seating areas. If you're fortunate to be seated in the dining area farthest from the entrance, you'll be rewarded with an amazing view of the bay, Berkeley Pier, Bay Bridge, and Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. Menu is not avant garde by any means but well-prepared, fresh and tastefully presented. The Sunset Special (aka early bird special) is the best value. From 5-6 pm you can get a 3-course dinner for $19.99. Specific menu choices are on their website. Service was adequate but anything that required attention by the secondary server,e.g. more bread, etc, took a while. I hear that the weekend brunches are popular but the Monday evening patronage was sparse. (Better chance to get a great, rather than okay, table!) All in all a great place to have lunch or dinner while watching views of the bay and to take young family members to practice appropriate dining skills.

I went to HS Lordships with a group of co workers and the food was FABULOUS. The nice thing is the variety even for dinner. You can get a burger or sandwhich for 10-15 or a wonderful full meal for 25-40 so there is a little something for everyone. I had a salmon dish with veggies and shrimp on it that was so good and another person had a filet mingon with crispy onions on it that he said was the best steak he has ever had. Others had less expensive french dip and fish and chips and were equally as happy.

Ok.....enough abou the food. The views from the dining room were amazing. If you are in Berkely, it is worth a try.

They also have a happy hour menu in the bar which is very reasonable.....so you can chek that out too. Views from the bar are not as good but still ok.

Can't wait to go back and try their Sunday champagne brunch buffet.

Kelly the manager/owner is GREAT!!!
