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 over 33 years, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach. An excellent menu, a favorite with all the locals is designed to cater to all appetites and pocketbooks.

Great food if a tad over priced. The view is awesome if you get a patio seat. The service was prompt and friendly. Would recommend.

The location is beautiful and service was great but the food is nothing I would recommend to anyone. It was overrated and we expected a lot better food than we got. I would not recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a good quality food.

Business Lunch on the patio on June 14, 2019. It was a nice sunny day, the breeze was a little chilly, but the servers rolled the awning back to let the sun hit the tables which was just right. The food was DELICIOUS!! I had the salmon salad. The rest of the group had the fish tacos. Our server was attentive and friendly. We had ample amount of time to get back to the office on time. I would recommend this restaurant.
