5 Stars: Great Food & Service

The deal: Oakland’s Lake Chalet offers up not just a rockin’ happy hour deal, but gorgeous views of Lake Merritt. Get in on their 3-6-9 Happy Hour: everything on the menu is (you guessed it) $3, $6 or $9. The ample menu includes sweet potato fries ($3), select premium cocktails ($6) and stick pork spare ribs ($9). A tip: Go on Tuesdays when Chalet also offers $2.50 tacos and half-priced margaritas.
