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.

I was looking for an outstanding, outdoor, dining experience. My family and I chose the Calamari, the seafood Cobb salad, the Chilean sea bass, the tacos, and the kids had burgers.
Everything was outstanding.... the service was very attentive... almost too attentive.... we felt a little rushed.
I will definitely return, and hope that the crowds are manageable and we can relax a little longer.

Fabulous ambiance and setting! Parking in the area can be difficult but valet parking is available on site for $6. Went on a Saturday around noon - found the menu a bit limited (no brunch served on Saturday) but the food and service was wonderful! Definitely a local favorite spot of mine!

Terrific as always... Had the great California Seafood Cobb Salad and my friend had the delicious Fish and Chips. Can't wait to go back and have the salad again. Sitting right on the beach listening to the waves, it's hard to beat! I drive in from the Palm Springs area (2 1/2 hours away) just for lunch and then go back the same day so that tells you something!

The menu offers a great variety of tasty dishes with emphasis on locally sourced ingredients to the extent possible. Love their tartar sauce. The ambiance unmatched. It’s been my Del Mar favorite for years.

I am sure this place doesn't need any help from me - they undoubtedly have high ratings. I am just taking the time to acknowledge our server - Stevie. Her service was outstanding! She was on top of everything and made our lunch extra special.

So glad they are open again. The perfect setting for outdoor dining. Prices are up and menu is reduced but not surprising given the setting and these times.

Wonderful meal overlooking the ocean. We watched the sunset while sipping Tiki's on the patio. Oscar was our server with great recommendations and perfect timing of all appetizers, soups and entrees, etc. He never rushed us but always made sure we were taken care of and in need of nothing. He kept our wine glasses full as well as our water glasses. He even took pictures of us relaxing in front of the ocean. Perfect evening, the food was wonderful. Highly recommend.

We had indoor seating due to rain and still had a remarkable view. Then our food showed up. Amazing!! Three of us had the fish & chips. It was the best I’ve ever eaten and I’ve eaten plenty. Can’t wait for our next trip to DelMar. We’ll definitely return.

We were glad to be able to once again have dinner at our favorite beach restaurant. The food, service, and ambiance were all as good as we remembered. A couple of surprises kept us from rating it at the top though. They have raised their prices, making eating there less of a value. Their cioppino was excellent and the portion was large, but it costs $40 now. Also, they have joined other restaurants in not serving bread with the meal unless you pay for it. Seems a bit chintzy when you are dropping $160 on dinner for two.

The seafood was incredibly well prepared, bright, and not overdone as can happen at so many other seafood restaurants. The view on the beach is spectacular, and the dedication to keeping customers safe and the restaurant clean was exceptional. The wine list was not extensive, but what they had were some great selections. Overall a great dinner out.
