    I have always loved Humphreys brunch, but I was so disappointed for the Father’s Day brunch. The selection wasn’t great and the food was cold. This was supposed to be a nice Father’s Day brunch but no one enjoyed it and I felt bad. It was not worth the price at all and quite sad as this was always my favorite brunch.

    I haven’t been to the Humphrey’s Sunday brunch in years and I was so disappointed. I came for Father’s Day and was expecting the same food and service that I once had years ago but things have definitely changed here and I will not be coming back. The food selection seemed a little smaller and the food was not so tasty at all, I only enjoyed 2 items I tried out of the selection. The only food items I enjoyed was French toast and ribs. The prime rib was cold, omelette had no seasoning, and several other items just tasted bad/old for example the cheese and the salmon lox I literally spit out. I didn’t even bother trying the desserts after because I was so grossed out. Our server was pretty nice but was not very attentive and it took us 20 minutes to receive the bill. We ordered drinks before we went to get our food and when we sat back down we still didn’t have our drinks. It wasn’t until we almost finished our plate that we received our drinks. When we finished and were ready to go we asked for the check, our server looked at us and nodded. 15 minutes goes by and we watch her helping everyone else. We asked a busser if he could ask our server for the check. When our server finally comes over to us and she asks us if we need anything we have to ask once again if we can please get our bill. At this point we’ve waited 20 minutes for our bill and we’ve been disgusted by the food so it just was not a good experience especially on Father’s Day. I want to add that not all tables were sat, so it wasn’t a situation where it was a very busy day/time and maybe that’s why it was an off experience. We came around 1 so I think if there was a rush it had already passed. Definitely not worth the 70$ ish per person plus drinks.

    I requested a table with a view and was seated towards the back of the restaurant w/o a view. Server was not too keen on serving champagne at brunch. We asked for a drink menu and he never brought it. We just wanted mimosas and we couldn't get champagne until we were almost done. It was difficult to get refills on the coffee. We asked for the check and it took over 15 minutes and a second request to get the check. Brunch food was tasty. There was plenty of options to choose from. The omelet dude was hustling! The desserts were very good. The problem may have just been my server, but the service was definitely not worth the $75 pp rate.

    We were actually expecting a full-fledged brunch but realized that it was my mistake as the buffet is happening next week on Father's Day. However, we were pleasantly surprised at the menu that we ordered from and probably enjoyed the meal more than next week's brunch. The service from Waitress Tiffany was impeccable and certainly worthy of the Humphrey's reputation for quality. The food was delicious across the board. We will be back!!

    This was advertised as “Sunday Brunch” so that is why I booked it. When we arrived, we were told they no longer do brunch and have a somewhat limited lunch menu. When I told them that they are being advertised online as a Sunday brunch THEY COULD HAVE CARED LESS.

    Very good anniversary dinner. Prices are reasonable. The view of the marina and Point Loma was very nice. My wife and I had main courses, a split of champagne and a beer for about $70, and she brought home some leftovers for another meal. A nice anniversary and evening.

    We were so happy to be able to celebrate 2022 Mothers Day at Humphreys. It was a family tradition to visit for the incredible buffet they put on in the past. This year, we secured our reservation for a Prix Fixe meal. We were greeted warmly and thanked, and the ladies received beautiful red roses. We were taken to our table-and score!-window seat for Mom. The service was excellent as always-staff took great care of us from beginning to end. We had a choice of several items spread out between 4 courses. The lobster bisque was a standout! My mom couldn't finish hers because there was so much, so she took 1/2 of her Prime Rib home. Upon our departure, we shared with our server and the front how much we enjoyed being able to fufill our tradition, and we look forward to the return of the buffet. I'm actually afraid to say how awesome the buffet is here because it's already hard enough to secure a reservation! Thank you Humpreys for always making a special event even more special.

    Out server was excellent and the restaurant was clean and nice inside, the food was disappointing, bland pasta dish, chicken was ok, burnt vegetables and my sister and I ordered the same exact dish except her vegetables were spicy with peppers and mine had zero peppers and zero spice. It was strange.

    Our server Tiffany was amazing and provided excellent customer service to our party, that grew from 10 to 15. She helped make this 75th birthday a great experience for my friends first time experience at Humphrey's. I dine with guys often as well as share in the concert and lounge experience. I wanted this to be a Extra special experience and it was that and more. Kuddos to Tiffany.

We had the mussels for appetizer and they did not disappoint! I had the salmon and my husband had the wild mushroom pasta. Both mouth wateringly DELICIOUS! Will definitely be returning!

    The location is ideal for concerts and while the service staff was nice, they were obviously overwhelmed which is par for the course these days. My main complaint was that the ambiance was just “off” and seemed very tired and outdated. I think a facelift with a nautical theme would be well worth the investment. You have folks going in there wearing sweatshirts because it can get cold at the concert, yet the ambiance seems to be going for a white table cloth experience and even that is tired. Food was excellent and wait staff was very friendly.

    Lovely dining, beautiful views, hostess was very attentive, friendly and well trained, she engaged us with a smile and conversation and made us feel welcomed. The server was also very friendly, helpful and attentive. My observation on the food: my fish Meal of Macadamia crusted Halibut was over cooked and burnt from the bottom. The orange sauce was delicious. The other person at table that ordered the same meal voiced the observation. Because of the reception and care we received we would recommend this restaurant and will give it another try. I would say to think twice before ordering the fish.

    We had a wonderful breakfast with an out of town guest that we had not seen in decades. Everything was as one would want it. From menu selection, to service to the actual meals - all was excellent. I would add that we had not been to Humphries in a couple of years, but the new furniture and upgrade make the dining room most pleasant and enjoyable. Bright and airy, but still soft. We will be back.

    Arrived expecting buffet, changed to preset 4 course meal. Sat us in back of restaurant, 5 people crammed into booth with 60% of restaurant empty; so it was hard to take in view of marina. Service was attentive, but nothing special considering $75 per person. Past experience in bar was good, but restaurant was so-so.

    Our server was very nice. But for Easter, we were looking for more of an upscale, more classy feel. I think we paid $75 per person plus tax and tip and got a $40 meal. Just wasn’t what we expected. Also, lots of empty tables. I think for just a normal dinner out it would of been okay - but there was no extra effort for Easter.
