    Our server was great. Two of our family members had prime rib that was overcooked. They were then informed that they were out of prime rib. So, two of us sat with our food and waited. The wait staff was great and management was doing everything they could to make it right for our table. I appreciated their efforts and we will be back. Overall the evening was a little disappointing but we will give them another chance. Management and server did an excellent job of communicating and making it right.

    Brigantine has been reliably good for us. Wish we could have had a table near one of the fires but other than that a great experience. Seated us promptly even though arrived early for reservation. Waiter was courteous and able to make some appreciated substitutions. Wife had scallops and I had swordfish and both thought meals were delicious. Crab and shrimp fondue appetizer was great. A good experience and we will be back.

    We enjoy the Brig at least once a month. My wife lives the ciapino soup and even though it is considered a lounge entree, the Brig was able to accommodate her that dish.

    The table was dirty when we were seated and busser was annoyed about having to clean food and sticky residue from table. Waiter helped ensure it was clean. This restaurant needs an overhaul or new management. It is not up to par with the Brigantine brand. We almost always go to La Mesa Brig because it’s cleaner, the food is better and it’s just a higher end feel.

    We had 3 meals. 2 were excellent in every way. The service (Bill) was outstanding. The 3rd (Cioppino) was a major disappointment. Skimpy seafood (only 3small mussels, 6 small shrimp, and something like pellets that I had to assume were supposed to be scallops). The sauce was watery and not very enticing. I have never been disappointed with the quality and quantity of a meal at the Brig. And, I will continue to dine there in the future. I just thought you would like to know about this one instance.

    Friday evening, and no Prime rib. Seated at a table that should have been out of service. Wood trim of table was sticky and nasty, it would take away any desire to eat. Someone said they are going to renovate after Valentine's day..Have been going there over 24 years. Very disappointed.

    Bland tasteless fish and an over dressed salad. Service was impeccable and the setting was very nice. The dining room was quite enough to hold a conversation without shouting. They need to improve their game on the food quality at the prices they charge.

    The food was wonderful. We had the crab stuffed shrimp, the lobster tacos, and the shrimp and grits. All were fantastic. We also started with the crab and shrimp fondue and it was cheesy and delicious. The service was great and friendly. The food came out quickly and hot. Great place to celebrate a birthday.

    Our time and experience there was very good. Our server was great! Our meals were very tasty. My only comment would be the the bread didn’t seem up to par. We’ve eaten here a number of times and have always thought the bread was delicious. We especially always look forward to what used (?) to be the brown or “squaw” bread. Last night’s bread (both) was just so-so.

    Good food, attentive waiter, with great ambiance (fire burning in fireplace). Tables were not on top of each other. It was quiet enough to have good conversation. Various rooms were available for different atmosphere such as the bar area with the sports game on. We were seated in a back room which was perfect for conversation.

    The service was way off . It seemed like they were understaffed . There were large parties and it took a while for our table to be greeted. We were forgotten about and then put the food order in . It took an hour to get the food . The manager came over and said the food ticket had been lost so they had to restart the order again and apologized . I usually like The Brig but Sunday was a disaster . The table next to ours complained about their food being spoiled . Ours seemed fine when it actually arrived .

    It took over 45 minutes for them to bring us two salads and they brought them to the wrong table at first then gave them to us after they were coughed on by the other customers; not the other customers fault for coughing but you shouldn't bring coughed on food to people after messing up an order placement. On top of that they served my mom a chicken salad with truly very old chicken. It smelled and tasted horrific. I made her spit it out just to be safe. You couldn't even chew it and it reeked. The manager came out and did absolutely nothing besides say they had high standards which does nothing because they clearly don't at all if they're serving that and offer no resolution. Very surprising nothing was done to remediate a disgusting situation by the manager. We will definitely never come back here again and will definitely never have business meetings here. Atrocious.

    Server was attentive. Food was delish although the meat on the grilled oysters was small (maybe normal?). There was a bit too much sauce on my lobster tacos but very tasty. One person in the party had the prime rib and enjoyed it. Another had fish and chips and said very good. Love the free dessert for birthday.
