Great service except for the part when the buss boy took away the heater and made my girlfriend freeze for a bit until the manager brought us a new one.
Incredible spot for dinner. Food is always great and you can't get a better view.
Always love Tom Ham’s. Best view, food, drinks and service in San Diego. The muscles are the the best we’ve ever had anywhere! And the portions are large.
Monica I think it was was amazing. She was working up top on the 5th and made our date so much better. 5 star service!
Always a great experience. Love the view! All time my favorite spot in San Diego on the water.
Great location with free parking
Food is good but not the best.
Staff are friendly. Will visit more if they have special for locals. Nice place to take out of town guest
This was our 4th or 5th time here (first time during Covid). Everyone was seated outside on the beautiful patio and distanced appropriately! As always, the service was amazing and the food delicious. Enjoyed a cocktail with our appetizers and a glass of wine with dinner. My husband loves the “whole fish” so that’s what he ordered. Our daughter ordered the “market fish” and it was outstanding (wish I had ordered it but my salmon was delicious too)!
It was a great night! Good weather and really nice view!
Celebrated my 10th year anniversary with my wife for brunch. Had a wonderful experience and definitely coming back.
Great view, amazing food and service!
Best place to eat in San Diego! Amazing view and incredible food. Very romantic for a special occasion.
What a Great view on a beautiful day in late November...70 degrees!
We love the place and will be back again and again.
Excellent in all aspects of our dining experience. A truly amazing and memorable occasion to celebrate Thanksgiving at this restaurant!
Such a beautiful location
Best view of the downtown skyline
Horrible doesn’t begin to describe this experience. Service took forever, menu was extremely limited, food tasted gross, parts of meal were delivered cold/frozen, yet still charged the full price. Will never come here or recommend this place again. I’m a local as well and look forward to seeing this place go under and a new restaurant taking over.
The thanksgiving menu at Tom Ham’s was amazing! The lobster bisque and ceviche appetizers were delicious. The prime rib and salmon entrees with Thanksgiving fixings were amazing. And dessert was great. Can’t wait to come back!
What an amazing experience! Everything from the service as soon as you set foot in the door, to the beautiful view and delicious food. A very nice way to spend Thanksgiving if you don’t want to cook.
I dine to different high rated restaurants. It was my first time at tom Hams. The food is not worth the price.
Great place - been going here for years. Great Food
Loved every minute of it!
What a great escape.
Service was awesome and friendly
Food was delicious and money well spent.
Will always love to go back over and over and over again.
Sunday brunch. Beautiful view. Had mimosa, eggs Benedict trio, steak frites, and donuts. Allergic to shellfish, otherwise would be all over the platters. Steak frites was okay. Fries good, sauce was boring, and steak a little tough. Eggs Benedict had good flavor, but arrived luke warm... only hot component was the eggs. Donuts are a little dense, but berry sauce was great. View was beautiful and service was excellent. Really enjoyed our time and would happily return!
Thank you Tom Ham's Lighthouse for a perfect evening.
Add me to the list of locals who had avoided this place in the last few years because of the quality of food - and I am now completely sold on it. We promised we would give it another shot and we did and we’re SO impressed. Sitting outside with the gorgeous view, the delicious cocktails and the expertly prepared fish dishes which were perfection. The heaters outside were plentiful, especially up against the building, and you could tell all the proper precautions were taken for COVID. We will be back soon, especially during sunset.
Went with my girl for our anniversary. Got sat by the railing on the water, and the view of the SD skyline and Harbour was great. There was a wedding going on on the lower floor, but we didn’t mind and it wasn’t too noisy. Ambience and overall vibe, as well as the service was as good as you can expect at this type of restaurant. My only quip was the food. My lady enjoyed her meal, but I spent 48 dollars on a steak, that definitely didn’t taste like it was worth it. I would go back, but would order something different.
Great food and view!
My wife an I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary and the service and food was excellent. The waitress brought us a chocolate cake that read “Happy Anniversary” around the cake. It was a very nice gesture.
Gorgeous location with great views of San Diego bay. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is very good. I've had the shrimp po'boy, clam chowder and hamburger. All have been excellent. French fries and twice cooked and delicious. Good selection of wine by the glass.
We love coming to Tom Ham’s Lighthouse for their excellent food, beautiful view, and great customer service. We had Diana the last time we visited Tom Ham’s Lighthouse & she’s the BEST in every way. Thank you Diana for making our visit memorable ❤️.
We’ll see you again soon.
Music was way too loud but otherwise excellent
Amazing place. Wonderful good and cocktails. Great views to the Bay. A little windy.
Quiet once staff turned the music down. Excellent service.
Very enjoyable evening. Good food, good service, great views!
Amazing view, very simple but delicious food. Went in for brunch and had an great time enjoying the ocean view.
The food was excellent and our server was amazing. The tenderloin starter was melt in your mouth good.
We ate kind of late, so the only complaint I have is that the food runners became complacent. They dropped our appetizer without us having silverware, and without time for Us to ask for some. They also served another table my husband’s food and then served me my main dish and walked away without explanation. When out server came by he was VERY apologetic and my husbands food came out quickly. Honestly I wish I could remember the servers name because he went above and beyond to make our night special.
Hard to believe but this was my first time here, and I'm a 50yr old SD native. I've watched the ebb and flow of this building for generations, and if not for celebrating our anniversary during COVID times, we may not have ever made it here. But we needed a romantic place outside on the water, so make it here we did. And we had a GREAT night. It was quiet, romantic, private, with a view to die for, looking back across the bay at the downtown skyline lights. It is a BIG building, so it felt empty as you walk upstairs and through to the outside, but that's the nature of the County COVID protocols at the moment. With it being so quiet, you can appreciate the historical maps adorning the walls. The food was outstanding, the drinks even better, and the authentic kindness of the staff topped it all off. Fantastic experience.
Great place, outside eating with views of harbor. Abel was our server and was very attentive.
I went here with my boyfriend of 3 years to celebrate our anniversary and it was one of the most special/beautiful dates I’ve ever been on with him. I would definitely want to come again in the future, the view was amazing around 5pm during fall season and I love how the restaurant provides heaters. The food was immaculate as well as our server, she was very kind to us and suggested great dishes to us.
This is a must go when you visit San Diego. The views are incredible, and tables are well spread out. We sat outside which makes the view even better. The food was all well prepared and excellent. Service was very good, attentive but not bothersome. A great place for a special occasion, but reasonable enough that it doesn't have to be only a special occasion trip.
Food isn’t great if your looking to celebrate go to Top of the Market food is better
If your looking for a quick bite this place is fine
