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.

Your hosts, David Levy and Barry Robbins, welcome you to their version of a traditional deli! When we opened in 1995 our goal was to remind our customers what a deli experience is like. From crunchy kosher pickles to piled high pastrami and corned beef sandwiches, steaming bowls of matzo ball soup, traditional brisket dinners and a bakery boasting homemade recipes, we hope to please our customers from start to finish. We work hard to source the best meats, vegetables, and ingredients all while developing new items to keep up with current culinary trends!

    Jake’s is an great beachfront dining experience situated right on the sand at Powerhouse Beach. Sweeping views of the beach and ocean. American cooking brings innovation to fresh fish, shellfish and meat dishes. Good food and strong cocktails whole watching the waves crash. Really nice experience.

    We were seated in a large banquette facing the ocean. Although it was dark, it was still nice to see the beach. Our server, Oscar, couldn't have been better! He was prompt without being intrusive, friendly, and knowledgeable. I ordered the halibut special and my husband had the ahi. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. And our Groth chardonnay was a great accompaniment. We were too stuffed for dessert, but the selections sounded delicious. The Poseidon is always our go-to in Del Mar. It did not disappoint.

    Had a table on the 2nd floor that directly looked out over the beach. View was spectacular! My friend and I shared 3 different apps and there were all amazing: crab cakes, empanadas, and beet salad with arugula. Be prepared to valet park your car or park in garage across the street.

    This was my second visit and it did not disappoint. Miranda was our server and was personable, professional and made sure we were 100% familiar with the menu before ordering. My steak was perfectly prepared and I highly recommend adding the truffle butter to it! I had the Cesar salad and macaroni and cheese and they were full of flavor. We enjoyed two bottles of Justin Cabernet and finished with the key lime pie and beignets. Looking forward to our next visit!
