About Brigantine Point Loma
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.

Brigantine Point Loma Ratings and Reviews
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.
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
We went in to celebrate a friends birthday/going away and as always had a wonderful experience. The staff is consistently amazing but I would like to give special recognition to Rita, who is the loveliest woman. We also received great service from a busser, whose name I did not catch. They did however, leave the BEST selfie on my phone when I asked them to take our picture! We got a great laugh from that!
The Brigantine in Point Loma was quite the delight. We hadn't been to any Brigantine's for long while because we had been quite disappointed with the one in La Mesa but this was a treat. The crab and lobster fondue was superb, although rich; the spinach salad luscious and the parmesan crusted sand dabs delicious! The creme brulee birthday dessert was among the best I've ever had! We got the window table as we had requested and had a lovely evening.
We arrived half an hour early yet were still accommodated with a window table with very little wait. The shrimp and chips were excellent, one of the very best plates of French fries in town. They didn't skimp on the shrimp, either. The service was excellent, although it took awhile to receive the bill. Good local beers. All in all, well done.
