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 Crème Brûlée. 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 Monday-Saturday. Join us for our signature Happy Hour.

My nephew and family were visiting here from Sacramento and we took them to the Brigatine (my favorite place). They were so impressed and loved the food. Never a disappointment when we have gone there.
Thank you.

Great service! I feel like my party was accommated very well. There was no problem with having to sit our bills which always seems to be a hassle. Reserved with open table and was seated right away.

Celebrated my husband's birthday and it well worth it! We enjoyed the food and the wine which was recommended by our waitress. It was a little noisy because of construction on the patio but it was still worth it! Would go back and let friends know.

Came here for lunch on a weekday before heading to the airport. I made reservation but the restaurant was pretty empty at 1:30pm. Food quality is decent and price is very reasonable. I will definitely return if I am in the area next time.

We have always been fans of the Brigantine Chain, but this location is by far one of the best. The service was outstanding, everything right the first time. We had a party of 15 in celebration of my Son's graduation.

This will become our new Sunday spot

The bread provided complimentary for the table was stale. Quality and size of the Swordfish entree was not great - we ordered the special three course menu, perhaps they give smaller portions when ordering the special? I would not recommend this restaurant for someone who is looking for excellent fish entrees ----average at best. The bar scene is a good value and they do have great fish tacos, but the dining room experience is not worth the cost of what they charge for mediocre entrees.

My mom and I enjoyed our lunch at Brigantine Point Loma. The crispy coconut macadamia shrimp was delicious and so was the spinach salad, and we both had ice cream for dessert. All-in-all, a great place for lunch while we were in town.

The service appeared to be pretty slow (which seemed strange because we came in after the lunch rush) but we weren't in any hurray that day.

We both ordered the prime rib. My companion's meat was tender however, my prime rib was very tough so I sent it back. They were very sorry, & graciously removed my meal from our bill. They even offered a complimentary dessert to us. I would definitely return to this restaurant because all the food served there is usually excellent.

Once again, the Brigantine in PL exceeded our expectations. When we arrived they had an Anniversary Card for us and all the staff who passed by our table congratulated us! There were two large (15+) parties in the restaurant that night, but it did not interfere with the progress of our dinner - no waiting for service or food. And of course, the meal was PERFECT (as always). This is why we keep coming back!

We have been visiting the Brig for years, especially Taco Tuesdays. We brought our friends from Minessota for something different. They enjoyed the menu, selecting meat while we had fish dishes. They want to visit the restaurant again and plan to bring their family to the Brig this summer.

Our waitress was fantastic and really made us feel welcome. She is a keeper.
