Great atmosphere, lovely view of San Diego and the Tenderloin tips were amazing
My son celebrated his 24th birthday here, his choice. We all had a great time. The boullabaise was yummy. My hubby had the amazing tenderloins of beef. Our son had the New York steak,which he loved, the chicken looked tender and yummy, the seafood and rice looked fabulous, the sirloin was a bit underdone but still looked good. Wine and cocktails were wonderful. The service was a tiny bit off. First a gentleman came introduced himself and took our drink order and then a young lady brought the drinks and took our food order and introduced herself . She seemed a bit lost at first and maybe thrown for a loop. Not sure what happened. We used to come often many years ago. The bar used to be in the front area and there wasn't seating outside. Also, there was a boat in the middle of the restaurant. The new changes are nice and refreshing. Big groups are welcome.
The place made our special occasion extra special! We traveled far to enjoy the scenery but received much more. Our server did a marvelous job explaining the menu and keeping us occupied taking our pictures since we are celebrating our wedding anniversary. The food was excellent! We started with Oysters and Greens, Clam Chowder Soup before main course with wine. The skyline and the view of the harbor painted our night making it so much memorable. The staff are knowledgeable about their job making it a worthwhile experience. We will bring the whole family on our next visit coming from San Fernando Valley.
Server was very friendly and helpful. Food was not great. Great atmosphere.
Had really great service at Tom Hams. The food was good, but not spectacular. The view of the bay and the skyline made up for anything else. I would definitely recommend Tom Hams for a date night when the weather is nice.
Impressive. Easy to get to, nice area, easy free parking. Great view day or night. Very nice, upscale but not stuffy. Excellent service without being hovering. Food was very
good, and if it is a special ocassion,in our case a birthday, they have a surprise at the end. A special notation. Over the years I have been to many nice places, but I can honestly say this is one of my favorite upscale experience places for really good food and an outstanding twilight waterfront view of the bay and city lights.
Service, food and view were spectacular!
Visiting from the UK, we enjoyed a great atmosphere, great food & great staff, make sure you sit on the outside patio for a fantastic view of the city lit up at night.
Lunch with family that I had not seen for decades! Everything was amazing and the view was the talk of the day!
We went to lunch at 11:30 so beat the crowd and had a great meal, wonderful view, and a nice conversation with good friends.
Tom Hams is consistently good every time. We absolutely love this place!
Great Find!! We are in town celebrating our 45th anniversary. The staff was friendly / attentive. Food exceeded our expectations.
Great location -- marginal service -- food was horrible.
The food was outstanding and the service was even better! My wife loved the Paella and I loved the Scallops. The Creme Brule was one of the best I have ever had
Tom Ham's Lighthouse is one of the prettiest restaurants in San Diego, with a breathtaking view of San Diego Bay. Both the service and the food are excellent. It's definitely one of the best seafood restaurants in San Diego. My friend and I shared the Grilled Asparagus and Corn Salad as a starter. It's delicious but would have been way to much for one person - even two of us barely finished it. For our entrees we had the Market Fish and the Pan Seared Maine Diver Scallops. Both were excellent, but the fish was slightly under-cooked for my taste. The server had pointed out that they cook it medium rare, so I asked for medium but I still got medium rare.
Between the food and a decent bottle of wine, it was a pretty pricey dinner. I have to say the wine list is overpriced, but it often is is nicer restaurants.
First time to Tom Hams in years. Loved the remodel, view & food.
Perfect way to celebrate my 65th birthday. Delicious food and beautiful scenery.
Great food at the Sunday buffet, the views from the outside patio unbeatable and service was right on top of everything. Would recommend to anyone visiting beautiful san diego.
Had a wonderful time at Tom Hams, celebrsted my birthday with family. The service was outstanding, the food was great, and they made me feel really special on my special day. I will definitely dine there again!
We love brunch at Tom Ham’s. They have a great selection of food and we always enjoy the mimosas. The waterfront view is lovely and our server has always been great! Can’t wait to go back!
Great dinner and attentive service. Yellow fin and salmon were very good. Scallops were only sheared on one side and steak was tasty
no wonder the Lighthouse is iconic, it has been delivering fine dining in an unmatched setting for decades... Five Stars
Celebrated granddaughter's 20th birthday and everything was wonderful.
Excellent atmosphere and really good food. Great service
Yummy buffet includes seafood, brunch and lunch dishes, pasta and omelet station, carvery table, champagne/mimosas/sparkling apple cider and a huge array of desserts.
Consistently delicious brunch! All my favorite foods!
Our server was very friendly and did a wonderful job. The view on the patio was great. Would definitely recommend for a fun night out with business colleagues or friends as well as for a date night.
Almost every seat has a great view of downtown. We were treated well by the server.
25+ year reunion with a dear friend.
Excellent food, good value, great views of downtown across the bay
Great waterfront view of the city, sailboats & sunset. Food was good, a bit pricey but you are in San Diego.
Wine list was extensive. Enjoyed a wonderful Zin with friends. Service was right on.
Great view of city lights, patio seating was perfect on such a clear night... bit spendy, but overall a great time
Frequent visitor. Fantastic food every time. Amazing service. Incredible views.
Sea food is good. Champs flowed good juice, great view. Dig the Brunch
I loved this place, came here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The service was great, and the food was outstanding. We will be coming back!!!
We really enjoyed the food. The view of San Diego skyline was breath taking. Very reasonable prices for some great dishes by an experienced chef. Thank you.
Overall, I love Tom Ham’s and the amazing view of the San Diego skyline. The night started off great...our server was super nice and attentive. I’m not sure what happened, but at some point after our food arrived he stopped coming by. I know there were several large groups and he was busy, but what started off strong ended in poor service. The food, in general, was good, but my wife’s scallops were terrible. To be fair, we did not send them back. We’ll be back to Tom Hams but we were slightly disappointed.
One of our favorite restaurants. We love the Crab Louie for lunch - real crab meat, none of this artificial stuff. Wonderful with a Frank Family Chardonnay. Also great for after theatre matinee martinis and oysters.
Carlos our server was outstanding! The food was great but the service was exceptional!
No complaints. Love the view.
