Seafood

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.

    We were celebrating our 31st anniversary. We sat at a table next to the wall/beach. Michael was our waiter. He is one of the best waiters we’ve ever had !!! He made our anniversary lunch special. I truly recommend the Poseidon restaurant and make sure you ask for Michael to be your server !!!

    Went to Poseidon to celebrate my wife's birthday. I had the clam chowder which was bland. Asked three times for some pepper, but it never came. Then I had the steamed clams which was flat with no taste. My wife had the fish tacos, and she thought they were great. My crown royal and her long island ice tea were spot on. We have been going to Poseidon for years and will continue to do so. May be it was just an off day for the chefs and waitress's.

    Everything was great except valet parking. That needs to be fixed. Lot was full, need someway to notify when that's the case. Very frustrating. Took 15 minutes and a long walk to find parking.
