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.

Great food. Only downside, which wasn’t the restaurant’s fault, was the screaming kid at the adjacent table.

Had a wonderful dinner, one of the best dining experiences we have ever had!

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.

The entire meal was excellent. Our waiter was one of the best. I ordered a shrimp and crab Louis and found it to be very well done. Expect to go back for another good time.

We were able to get reservations at the last moment. The food was great as was the service.

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.

We had the best meal that we have had in a long time. The service was excellent. The server recommended some wine that was “to die for”.

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.
