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.



Beautifully remodeled in early 2009, the Brigantine is well-known for the signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish, and Fish Tacos. The Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks and grilled meats.



Home to the America's Cup until 1995, Shelter Island is still the yachting center of San Diego. The Brigantine offers glimpses of this busy marina from the outdoor patio and semi-private banquet areas.



The Point Loma Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, and lunch Saturday & Sunday. Join us for our signature $5 Happy Hour from 3-6pm.

    Definitely love the ambience at this Brigantine. Unfortunately, we did not receive the best service as we did the other time we were here. The waiter was friendly, but after we received our meal we weren't checked on to see if we needed anything else until we were done eating. Our soup wasn't hot, and we could have used water refills. Don't get me wrong, we love Brigantine, this is just a review for this reservation =)

    We’ve been huge Brigantine fans for years, especially the Pt Loma location but the last few visits have been disappointing. We were a part of 5 adults celebrating my mom’s birthday. The swordfish was dry, the bacon wrapped shrimp (my go to favorite) was way over cooked/burned and the prices were high. Not a good value for the money. I’ve always been a big fan and recommended it to others but…

    We definitely prefer the brigantine in La Mesa much better. The bread wasn’t quite the same st this one, the chicken Cordon Bleu was very bland. My husband really enjoyed his chopped chicken salad, even though it had a little too much dressing on it. The waitress was really good and the service was perfect. It was very noisy even though they tried to get us in a quieter area and a booth.

    Very disappointed. I chose this location due to its ratings not knowing dish pricing. I ordered the seared halibut with hopes of a delicious fish meal. The halibut was not fresh, white as copy paper, and barely seared. It appeared to have been precooked and just thrown on pan. The fish was extremely dry and overcooked. It was very hard to eat but I wasn’t going wait for another order. I had to force myself to eat most of it. The scallops looked good which I should’ve ordered instead.

    The Brigantine is a long time favorite of ours, especially when we have out of town guests. Last night's dinner (12/27/27) was exceptional. Our guests had never eaten sand dabs and were smitten; they also thought the clam chowder was "the best they'd ever had"- and these are world travelers.

    Got seated early with a reservation and got a nice table. Patti, our server did a great job, even asking us when we would like to have each course arrive, all at once or timed to arrive when the first course was finished. Food was great, steak was prepared perfectly and the sides are very good, the salmon was very tasty too! Was to full for desert but they had a nice selection.

    The crab and shrimp fondue was outstanding. Our meals were good, but I think the vegetables were a bit over cooked and little mushy. Restaurant is nice with a nice atmosphere. Our server was busy and probably not very experienced so the service was a little below par, but not a big deal since many restaurants are struggling to find good help these days. Overall, we had a good experience and would recommend this restaurant to others.

    Service was attentive throughout the meal and the restaurant had nice ambiance—clean place including the restroom. Really enjoyed our fish. I had the macadamia nut crusted mahi with risotto and chef vegetables. My wife fade the blackened Salomon with a purée, wild rice and sautéed spinach. I tried one of their house drafts plus their specialty old fashioned and margarita; my wife had a raspberry mojito that she finish, which is often not the case with her as far as any cocktail since she is not a drinker. Paid parking was plentiful on the Sunday we visited.

    The dining room was nearly empty. The food was excellent. As entrees we had Sandabs, Wok Ahi, half seafood cob and bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp. Appetizers included potato skins, blue point oysters and fried calamari. All the food was delicious and plentiful. We usually eat in the bar but a quiet night with family was perfect. La Mesa is very busy but Pt. Loma is much quieter when there is no concert at Humphreys.

    The Brigantine Point Loma was wonderful last night. We were celebrating a friend's birthday, which went really well. We had an amazing, kind server, Rita, who was great! Our food was likewise excellent and the ambience was comfortable. It could not have been better. The Brig is an old standby that just gets better with age! Thank you!
