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.

    We were greeted and seated quickly with our reservation. Water was brought to our table quickly. Server arrived, greeted us pleasantly took our drink order. Server returned and took our food order, meal took awhile to arrive as it was busy, server checked on us frequently to see if we needed anything …I had the surf & turf, it was very tasty and warm. There were some loud people behind us. The service was excellent, and the food was great. We felt we were well taken care of.

    We had a amazing dinner with our 4 kids ages 9-19. We were on a family trip and googled the area for restaurants and this one had great reviews. Server was amazing everything he recommended was incredible. All the food was cooked perfect the drinks desserts were also delicious. Calamari was the best as were the oyster shooters and you must order the Brussels sprouts . Crab stuffed lobster with filet mignon were incredible. We highly recommend eating here!

    The menu is very deceitful when it comes to gluten free. They do not actually provide gluten free meals. It’s gluten free by omitting the gluten item. It was a waste of time

    Edgar was the best server and the food was delicious! It was a much more laid back environment then the more “trendy” location. Not on the waterfront but we were there to enjoy each other’s company after years apart - not look at the scenery!

    The menu has a decent variety. It was disappointing that there weren’t more seafood options - like crab. The food was pretty fresh and good. Unfortunately the service was subpar. Our server was not attentive. The other tables that were seated outside had more service then us so it wasn’t an issue of understaffing.

    Overall a very good experience. A bit disappointed that they didn’t have the regular $20 per bottle of champagne so settled for the $25 bottle for brunch. Love the ambiance and the food and service was good. Will definitely be back in a few weeks.

    We ate at Brigantine while waiting to pick our kids up from the SD airport. We arrived just after they started serving dinner, so it wasn't crowded. Our server was very personable, and also knowledgeable about the needs of our gluten-free diet, and she was able to recommend just the right choices. Everything was delicious. The service was great, and we enjoyed it a great deal.

    The only issue we experienced was when we arrived we stood at the hostess table and waited a while...They were there, but did not even acknowledge we were there. That was a little annoying since they were not that busy. If they would have at least lifted their heads and acknowledged us it would have been fine to wait, but just ignoring us is not the way to do things.

    Good food. The Halibut and Chicken were phenomenal! Macadamia crusted Mahi was bland, recommend selecting a different entree. Drinks were great! Everyone there seemed to be having a good time. Our waitress was nice, but slow and didn't check in on us. Plan on going again and do recommend.

    Always a good experience going to the Brigantine - one of my favorite restaurants - very kick back atmosphere with exceptional service by their whole team, all while getting a great meal! Some of my favorite dishes that are very tasty are the Macadamia Crusted Fresh Mahi Mahi - Grilled Salmon - Jumbo Day Scallops. Also their Wok-Charred Ahi is excellent as well.

    Disappointing. Basket of warm dark and “French” bread arrived; very appealing - both tasteless. We tried both - not worth the carbs. Clam chowder did have a clam or two - basically bacon-flavored potato soup. Left it. Large crab cake was ok. Crab cakes tonight at another seafood restaurant we’re really good. Parmesan sole fillets were ok but nothing special. First time ever I did not finish an order of sole. Will not go back.

    Disappointed in the Tiger Shrimp n Grits, which lacked in flavor with the grits having dry chunks. Had to ask for salt n pepper to try to get some taste. Pepper shaker came empty and took 10 minutes to get that taken care of. The oysters however were excellent. Mrs. Guest enjoyed her encrusted halibut special.

    The food was “meh”, but our server was fantastic. The shrimp in my Louis salad had the sac left in the bottom half, and were severely overlooked. The Brussels sprouts were okay, but needed acid. The crab cakes were not impressive. My husband had the scallop dish and it was the star- it was something we would order again.

    Everything thing was great and food was delicious. There were 4 of us for Mothers Day Brunch. When we received the bill it was for over $1,200.00 it took them 4 times to get our bill corrected. I would of expected with all the confusion something to be comped. I would recommend reviewing your bill as you should with any purchase mistakes happen more then not.
