Brigantine Point Loma
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.

Very noisy, poor service, Manhattan made with white vermouth and ugly, filthy hallway to use elevator if you have to.,.
The food is so delicious. And the server is polite and nice to costumers. They serve the food in right time. Recommend to my families and friends.
Everything was amazing! From the customer service to the food. I will definitely be returning.
They didn't show our reservation on their computer, I had to show them my email, but they seated us anyway, in the bar area. A bit loud for us. Food was delicious.
Our waiter, Dakota was very attentive and professional. Made the experience very enjoyable. Food was very tasty.
Mother’s Day! The service as well as the food is impeccable! Ine of the best dining experiences I’ve had. Special shout out to our server, Madison! A total professional with a great personality. All the staff really know how to serve!
I was not impressed with the seasonings used on the fish. Seared Ahi Tuna had a lot of spices that I would have expected to find only in street tacos.
The Pork Chops were excellent.
Service was a bit slow. They were busy, but not so much as to take a reminder to bring out a hot tea we ordered. The side of French fries was, likewise, awfully long coming out from the kitchen.
I made Mother's Day reservations only a few days before and they were wide open for lunch, which kinda worried me. But when the day arrived, the restaurant was packed. It was a gorgeous day by the San Diego Bay, we were seated promptly, the service was fast and friendly, and the food was delicious!
Way to crowded to be comfortable with COVID, but good food.
We had a very enjoyable dinner all the way around
Brigantine never disappoints. One of our go-tos.
Laura is the greatest!!
Always a good time for good food and good service!
Omg it was a terrible experience. Food was not good. The restaurant is dark. My husband and took a group of friend there Sunday… never again. We had to apologize for the food. Do not go.
Great service, good food, good atmosphere. Went for my birthday and it was a great experience.
oysters and sail boats1 nice view good food! go ahead and try the pepper vodka oyster shots too !
Delicious well prepared entrees, courteous and prompt service.
Will eat there again. Visiting from out of town. Waiter (Dakota) was attentive and fast. Food was very good and lots of variety on the menu. Usually only would try a few things on a menu,while this one had a number of items I would try. First time there.
Nice spot Love the brig! food is excellent and nice to sit outside on the deck! It was busy so service???
Delicious apps. Great service and Very busy on ShelterIsland for a Sunday.
Really an enjoyable experience we would recommend this restaurant which has a beautiful view of the harbor. Their COVID precautions protocol was easy to follow and well administered.
The food was good and the server was very pleasant but took quite a while between visits to our table. Very limited brunch menu.
Great meal. Really good food and portion sizes were great. Lovely touch on the creme brûlée to share as well, really topped off the evening! Would highly recommend.
Great fresh Mahi Mahi preparation! A+ service and great atmosphere! We will be visiting again soon!
Nice to see this location open again and was busy and everyone seemed happy. Our Server was Rita and she was great.
Liked all except coconut shrimp needed more coconut
The food and service was very good. We orderd the salmon stuffed with crab and shrimp, scallops with sweet potato mash and the shrimp and grits and every single bite was outstanding.
We ate outside on the terrace and it was perfect. The food was wonderful and the service was great! Highly recommend!
We got seated immediately on a Saturday evening and Edgar was our waiter. He was very attentive and made the experience very enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
Oysters were on point. Our server was so helpful with questions about the menu, as we have food allergies.
Great food!! Halibut was delicious! Great service!!
Acceptable food, but not good enough for the price. The dining experience was totally spoiled when the main course arrived just a couple of minutes after the appetizers.
Happy hour is always fantastic here, oysters, clam chowder, house salad all delicious.
Although there was a mixup with the meals being delivered to our table for two in our party, the food as always was amazing. The service was impeccable. And the way in which the manager made up for the delay in service for two of us, was beyond our expectations. Brigantine Point Loma is my husband and mine go to for special occasions. I definitely recommend dining here. PS try the crab and shrimp fondue. You'll thank me I guarantee.
We have been eating at the Brigantine for 40 years. They know what their strengths are and play to them. The sand dabs are simply exceptional. Our waitress, Sheena, was training a new employee named Sarah and our service was superb. The house draft beer, Brig Brew, is something I missed all through the quarantine. Our only tiny complaint was that the heater over our outdoor table did not function well, especially compared to others nearby.
Local family owns all the Brigantines and keep them classy, San Diego.
Made reservations online for outside seating. When we arrived they attempted to seat us inside. When we told them about our outside reservation, they said it’s only for large parties. We had to insist on with a manager. They ultimately honored our outside seating. The waitress Rita was excellent. She was very accommodating and attentive. We really liked her.
Our server was excellent. The food was served in a timely manner. And we were informed about the time limit at the restaurant which we appreciated. Win win all around! Will be back!
We finally went out to dinner after 14 months in quarantine. It was lovely to be out. The food was great and the young lady who seated us was so sweet and put us at a corner table away from others, which was great.
We had oysters on the half shell, scallops, fish & chips, clam chowder, and of course ...dessert. All delicious.
We’ve recently been vaccinated, but still want to be cautious about dining out, so I chose this restaurant because it offered outside dining. Though I’m glad we were seated outside because the indoor dining room seemed to be jammed with insufficient spacing between tables, the outdoor balcony overlooking the parking lot was completely lacking in ambiance and the heaters couldn’t keep up with the chilly sea breeze. The calamari appetizer was hot and tasty, and my husband enjoyed his fish and chips, though the fries were rather soggy. The halibut entree that I chose was tasteless, mushy and barely warm. Desserts are not offered on the menu, so our anniversary dinner was not as festive as we had hoped.
