Seafood
A San Diego tradition since 1969, the Brigantine has received many accolades in our 40+ year history: "BEST SEAFOOD", "BEST CASUAL SEAFOOD", "BEST HAPPY HOUR", and even "BEST SWORDFISH IN THE WORLD", according to USA Today - just to name a few.



Well-known for our signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish, and Crème Brûlée, the Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks and grilled meats.



With an updated nautical decor, the busy Oyster bar is hands-down the local favorite. Lush flowering foliage outdoors creates an elegant dining experience on one of two charming patios.



The La Mesa Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, lunch Monday-Saturday, and brunch every Sunday.

    We celebrated my 87-year-old friend’s birthday here on the outdoor patio after a happy hour drink in the bar. All servers were friendly and smiling. The food and drink were good and plentiful. What a fun dinner!

    Food was really great as always. We were first sat in the back room. It was so loud that we couldn’t hear each other. I asked to move and they moved us, which we really appreciated, to a booth in the main dining area. A lot quieter. I will make sure in reservation next time to request not to be sat in the back room.

    We were greeted by friendly hostesses and were seated immediately. Table service was professional and attentive. The food was delicious as usual. We enjoy The Brig as often as we can and tonight my husband said the Seared Ahi was the best he has ever had.
