After-golf dinner at "The Brig"
Nice afternoon out on the golf course. The Brig was a good, relaxing, and comfortable place to dine as it was on the way home. Service: Quite good. Menu choices: great for seafood or meat folks. Outdoors view: Superb during the pony season at Del Mar.

Amazing Swordfish tacos. Drink Menu is good and affordable. Have to go if you are in the area.
Note: It is Valet Parking. Make sure to bring cash.

We'll be back!
Our table was ready when we arrived and in the location I requested. Service was perfect, attentive but not hovering, and all dinners arrived as ordered. The food was very good and priced right. I get tired of paying exorbitant prices for mediocre food. The restaurant was very busy, but we were allowed to enjoy our meal and visit with our friends without having someone hanging around looking at us and encouraging us to leave. My only complaint would be the noise level. It was very loud and hard to hear each others conversations. But, all in all, a lovely evening and we will return.We'll be back

Good choice for an enjoyable dinner
We had reservations on a Friday evening and were seated at a large booth right away. Our party of five had plenty of elbow room. Everyone was able to find a selection from the diverse menu options. Service was friendly and prompt. The food was served not too quickly and not too slowly, just right. There was no feeling of being rushed out the door after the meal. All in all it was a very pleasant dining experience and we will definitely be back. We took out of town guests there and it is a very good option for that.

Newly renovated and well done
This old Del Mar favorite has had a great face lift with much more glass for their view of the neighborhood and the race track. The bar is larger, better to have their wonderful oysters and a glass of wine! The service friendly and the food reliable.

Excellent for weekend brunch
The breakfast menu is amazing. Each dish we have tried is superb. The bacon and sausage is wonderful. Service is excellent.

Wow we had such a nice table. I had a reservation. The prices were spot on and the food was very good. Very busy. I felt like we had the best table in the house! I would call it California causal attire with elegance.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Forgotten how nice
We had forgotten how great the view is--beach, Fair , racetrack and getting to see trains go by! Food was great--very good selection on menu. The remodel they did is very very nice.

Great early dinner
The Brig is a great place to eat! the food was excellent! The service was top notch!
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Food & Service
This was our second time eating here and we will defiantly be back! Both times we have had exceptional food and service!
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Watch the races
A bird's eye view of Del Mar Racetrack and the Fairgrounds. What a great location. Excellent burger at lunch but I'm not a foodie. Noise level a tad bothersome for oldsters and the mandatory $4 parking a bit of a downer. Couldn't they offer optional self-parking?
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a party of 8 and we were seated promptly. Great service by Madison. Food was fresh and imaginative. Will be back!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been coming to The Brig for a number of years and have always enjoyed the food and ambiance. The is the first time I have been there since the remodel and thought they did a wonderful job. The food was excellent and so was the service. A beautiful warm evening in Del Mar!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Nice Dinner
My wife and I had a relaxing dinner on the patio. Waitress was helpful and attentive and the food was very good. Great menu selection and drinks as well. Highly recommend.

Was told recently this restraurant
Was told recently this restraurant had a remodel....The atmosphere was of a high end beach restraurant with good food, service and well priced food items.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE THE ONLINE SERVICE! NICE!!!
IT WAS GREAT. WE FOUND IT LOUD BUT KNEW IT BEFORE COMING. WAITRESS OUTSTANDING. OLD FRIENDS OF OWNER AND OUR FAMILIES ALWAYS OPT FOR THE BRIG BECAUSE IT ALWAYS DELIVERS ON FOOD QUALITY, SERVICE AND VALET PERFORMANCE! I REALLY LIKED HOW QUICKLY THE ONLINE RESERVATION WAS ACCEPTED. HAVE A GREAT RACING SEASON!

I had gone to Brigantine, Del Mar for lunch with my husband and in-laws. All of us loved our experience there. The view was terrific- the ocean on one side and the rail track and race track on the other. We were seated outside on a lovely day. The crab and shrimp fondue was excellent. My cucumber margarita was one of the best I have had as well.This was my third visit to Brigantine, Del Mar. I have also been to the Brigantine in Coronado before which was also a good experience. I love this restaurant and will definitely return. The food and the views are worth the price. Highly recommend. Keep up the great work Brigantine!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service were excellent. The raspberry mojito was to die for! Definitely returning if we are ever in the area again!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Got this recommendation from a friend, we were very pleasantly surprised. Spent the day at the race track then to the restaraunt for appetizers and drinks. It was a great end to a wonderful day
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite!
I haven't been to the Brig in quite some time. The renovation was a huge improvement. View of the race track is amazing. My husband and son had the filet, and I had the scallops. Food, service, ambience and cocktails were excellent. We liked it so much, my husband and I went back the next day for lunch. We sat at the outside counter facing the racetrack. We watched a couple of races and had excellent apps and cocktails. We will be back again! Fun!

Great post Del Mar dinner spot
Located overlooking the Del Mar racetrack, Brigantine is a great spot to go after racing is over for dinner.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never a disappointment
The new remodel expanding the bar areas and putting wonderful glass windows on the deck makes it very "today".
Overlooking the race track and the wetlands makes for a pleasant and different view.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best restaurat in the area
This was a wonderful experience. Although the restaurant was full, the noise level was tolerable. The view is great and so is the food. We had a delicious meal served by attentive and efficient wait staff. We will absolutely be back whenever we are in the area.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmoshere - good service
Great atmoshere - good service - 2 of 6 entrees were average at best - 4 were very good. Good salads an appetizers. We enjoyed ourselves. Great end to a day of the ponies at del mar.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pre- race dining
You cannot beat this location, with del mar race track in the near distance. Ambience is flirty casual. Wait staff is attentive and friendly. Food is satisfying and delicious!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can you hear me...
This is not a place to go if you want to talk to others at your table.
Food was good
Service was great
The noise was so loud we could not wait to leave... And that's too bad.
Maybe an off night so we will try again.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Birthday at brigintine
We had a party of six, including two grandsons, everyone had an enjoyable time. The food was very good, as we're you can also get a good view of the ocean an race track from certain seats. Will be back again .
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will go back again and again
Will go back again and again and again! Food is never disappointing and the view of the track can't be beat!

Always order the Fish Tacos!!
Went to the Brig after the Track on Friday. So glad we had a reservation! Nearly all of us ordered the Fish Tacos. The one who didn't wish she did once the food came. Wish I would have indicated outside dining. They wouldn't accommodate our request on the spot. Look forward to Track Season winding down in Del Mar....
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Young hostess does not work.
Arrived at 6:10 for a 6:30 reservation and was told by a very young, inexperienced girl we would have to wait 20 minutes. Noticed a section of the restaurant with one table occupied and at least ten tables open, and a wait person working the area. Said what about that area? Clueless then said "Oh, well okay" and we were seated.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress Nicole was fantastic!
We had a great time if I wasn't watching my weight I would have tried every thing on the menu. Being a great cook myself I felt right at home, definitely. Also when you have a great waitress It makes your night even better. But I recommend, make sure when you make reservations on line you confirm it with the hostess before you get seated, THEY FORGOT MY BIRTHDAY. My husband had to remind them at the table.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Brig!
We spend a week in SD every Labor Day. We'll spend at least 3 of those at the race track at Del Mar. We alway go to the Brig before the track. The food is terrific. Try the lobster and crab Cobb or fish tacos. The specials are always quite tasty too. Service is always top notch. Try the Sunday Brunch with the $3 bottomless Champagne.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The seafood is fresh and the place quite attractive. It can be counted on to always deliver a good meal without disappointing.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Brigantine to celebrate a birthday and eat some good fish. We so enjoyed the food and service, and we were quite pleased with the changes made as our last visit was some time ago.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I think we had the best table on the patio, looking towards the Del Mar Racetrack and passing trains. A nice alternative was prepared when I mentioned an allergy -- great dinner. Only negative was that our server seemed to be in a hurry to clear our table -- took away bread, bread plates, etc. while we were still dining.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great seefood. We had a bunch
Great seefood. We had a bunch of small plates and the crab and shrimp fondue was wonderful. Creme brulee for dessert was a bit unexciting.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
As a first-time visitor I
As a first-time visitor I was impressed at the food, service and decor. I would return here if ever in the Del Mar/Solana Beach area again. My four other dining companions were also quite pleased with their entrees.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Girls night out!
We enjoyed our evening, the food was great, we had fish tacos and seafood salads, we also Enjoyed the refreshing Mojiotos! It's an energetic crowd, yet noise level is still conducive to personal conversation. Our waitress was very sweet, helpful and prompt. We'll be back!

This is my go-to place in San Diego's north county. Always consistent with good food and drinks. Only think bad was we had a bad waitress. She was nice but didn't get that we didn't want her jabbering at out table all night.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the first time we tried the Brigantine for Brunch. Food was good and while pretty busy, the ambience was great. Only weak spot was the parking - even though they have a parking lot, all their parking is valet parking, I have no issues paying for valet if there is no parking, but when the lot is reasonably empty and I have to pay to park my car and walk 50 yards to the door, that irritates me!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Sunday Brunch Menu
There is something for everone, good quality and you can keep track of all the games on the TVs in the bar.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Food and Service
Each dish was excellently prepared and presented. The server was knowledgeable about the food and offered suggestions. The pace of the meal was excellent.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Wonderful Time in California
This was our first visit to Del Mar (we're from Denver), and, of course, our first time at Brigantine's. It was wonderful from start to finish. We had a wonderful server, the oysters were absolutely delicious - so very fresh tasting. I had a crab salad (again, just wonderful) and scallops for my entree. My husband's food was equally satisfying.
We had such a great time and enjoyed our table by the window. Thank you, Brigantine's!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had the swordfish tacos & they were excellent as usual. My daughter had the Alfredo pasta and said it was awesome. But the best part of our lunch was our server Nicole! She was the best. She was attentive and helpful. I have eaten here many times and the servers have always been good but Nicole clearly is the best. I love when you feel welcome and that your server is happy to be at work. She was a gem and we will be requesting to sit in her area next time. She made a good lunch simply prefect
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
I wasn't expecting this place to be nice just by looking at it from the outside. But once you get in its actually very scenic and fancy.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Try the swordfish tacos
Brigantine has mastered the fish taco like no other.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent dining treat for family!
We went here for my son's 17th birthday dinner. He'd only been here once and my younger sons never. We all very much enjoyed our dinners, and all fell in love with the jalapeno white sauce with our chips. Even though we were all full, the mud pie was a hit with all my sons, and we all left stuffed and happy.

Friday at the Brigatine
Arrived on time and we were seated promptly. Staff was attentive and helpful with the specials selections from the menu...which helped me decide. Service was prompt, food at the right temp....all was quite tasty. All in all a very good time and meal. We'll be back.
