The minute you walk into Poseidon, you’ll be swept by the fabulous view. You couldn’t be closer to the sand and the beach than sitting at Poseidon on their beautiful outdoor patio. With such a spectacular ocean view, you’ll experience breathtaking sunsets and during the right season even catch a glimpse of the whales migrating up or down the coast. The bar offers a large circular firepit, which is nice on those chilly fall or winter nights. Off to the side of the bar is a split level dining room offering every table a panoramic view of the beach and the ocean. For decades, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach.

    Carne adada tacos were excellent. We had an early res, and our waitress was adorable, but seemed a bit overwhelmed. We had to ask for alot of items that a seasoned waitperson would have intuitively delivered. (Place settings, small plates, straws etc). As an ex server, it’s hard not to notice these things. Five entrees came out and we were almost done eating when the sixth person was served. So overall, service needs improvement, but the food is on point!

    Had another wonderful time at Jake’s. We were hoping to have Emily as our server but Dennis did not disappoint. We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday and Dennis made it extra special with his sense of humor. Emily did stop by toward the end of our time there, it was great seeing her again. Three of us had the fish and chips, excellent, we all enjoyed. My wife had her usual turkey sandwich with your killer homemade salt and vinegar chips ( she actually shared one for me to try). Jake’s never lets us down, so we will return often. Thank you again for your incredible team and hospitality.
