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.

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!

Food was horrible. Manager even comped the whole bill because he agreed that the meals were not up to their standard.
Service was under standard. Would never go here again or recommend to anyone.

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.

The food was good quality but bland. I had bay scallops and they didn't have much flavor. The vegetables needed seasoning as well. My daughter's potato was dry and not good to eat. The ribeye was good. The chowder was very good and the salt and pepper shrimp were delicious.

Very poor service- practically ignored the entire time we were there. Of the two main dishes that we ordered one was decently portioned while the other was just ludicrously / laughably small. Absolutely did not live up to the reputation of the brand name. Overall quite disappointed.

Reservations were useless. Obviously they didn’t prepare well for Valentine’s Day crowds. We finally got a table in the bar and ate there. Food was excellent though and it was wine Wednesday so all wine was half off. Our server was a good guy and worked hard.

The location is nice and the restaurant is attractive inside. We were offered an outdoor table, but it is February and chilly outside so so opted to wait 10 minutes for an inside table. The food and service was good and we will return.

Dinner was all around nice, but everything from the clam chowder to the beure blanc had a very strong sweetness to it. Like they used sweet cream and sweet cream butter, and added sugar one or the other please.

Great evening, good food with friends marred by a $42.50 ticket for parking in their lot!! Didn’t have change, no cc option on the machine, no price per hour noted on or near the machine, $42.50 was for 30 minutes in an empty lot!!
Very disappointing end to the evening. Restaurant should inform guests that there is a parking gestapo, hand out coins, validate.....something to let customers know that if they park near the restaurant they are screwed.

The Brig is always a consistent restaurant providing an excellent atmosphere for every dining opportunity. The Point Loma Brig is the most intimate restaurant in the chain. Great staff and service. They may wish to add prime rib to the menu, at least on a periodic basis.

We have loved the Brig for many years. We were disappointed in this visit however. The swordfish portion was thin and overdone; the lobster tempura tacos, while delicious, were messy and difficult to eat and the server forgot my husband's salad. We expect more from the Brigantine and will be trying new places for awhile.

We were there for Christmas Eve dinner and it just seemed off. The food was good but not up to their usual standards. The service was OK. Server had been on a while and it showed. Timing of our salads was off. We had barely begun on our salads when the entrees were served - and they were warm (but not cold enough to send back).

We have been dining at this location for several years and I was surprised at the decline in quality of food & service for this special occasion. Even on busy nights, they've done well in the past.

Our first time here was an absolutely amazing experience. After our second time, we won’t be going back. Food was cold and our 5 top order was totally wrong. They ran out of product and the service was mediocre at best. Even the Manager was at a loss for what to do. Bummer. We were really looking forward to our second meal here
