Seawolf, Oakland’s newest oldest pub. True to what historic public houses were meant to be—good food, good drinks, and community—Seawolf is a truly unique experience for those looking for a sense of place and a feeling of friendship.

Seawolf is a place to relax and enjoy good food and drinks.

Our diverse menu, developed by Chef Jason Moniz offers some of the best bar food around. Featured on the Food Network’s “Late Night Eats”, the Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich is widely recognized as one of the best in the bay. Also featured on the show, the authentic and ample-sized Street Tacos, are a big favorite. Our vegetarian tacos, salads, and fries are fantastic. But we wouldn’t be a great neighborhood pub without a great selection craft beers. Chosen to ensure a robust mix of beer styles, we hunt down the best beers coming out of some of the hottest beer-making regions in the US, including our very own backyard. And with ample space for lounging, you’ll never feel rushed. We don’t count table-turns at Seawolf. We count friends. So come alone or with a big group, and you’ll always feel welcome to relax and enjoy. 

Seawolf is a place of stories.

Housed on the bottom floor of a gorgeous historic Victorian built in 1882, Seawolf is a unique blend of old and new. The one hundred year old floors, salvaged from an old church in north Oakland, blend nicely with the 16 taps featuring some of the best craft beers from the area. The old walls carry the stories of the late 19th century corner market that used to serve the Jack London locals, along with the tales of its more recent hey-day as a famous cop bar. New stories are made daily by our regular patrons and as well as the tourist venturing off the beaten path. Adorning the pub, you’ll find artifacts from the days of prohibition we found in our walls. You’ll find old bottles we found in the ground. You’ll find one-of-a-kind photos and artifacts featuring the history of Oakland and the history of this place. But you’ll also encounter new friends, great food dishes, and the best craft beers. 


Seawolf is about sports, events, and celebrations!

With 7 large flat-screen TVs, and the mammoth projection screen, you’ll get a great view of your favorite sports game from any seat in the house. We welcome fans of all teams, but like any true sports pub, we’re a little biased toward our home-town clubs. But it’s all in good fun. What’s a good game without a little cheering and jeering? Seawolf also features the biggest events in sports, from the UFC, and NBA, MLB, and NFL play-off games. And don’t forget to join us for Taco Tuesday, Wednesday Night Trivia, and brunch with Bottomless Mimosas and Build-your-own Bloody Mary’s. Finally, we’re a great place to celebrate your personal events like birthdays, reunions, and company parties. We have ample space and we’d love to host you.
