We orders from the Raw bar, everything we ordered was fresh! You can’t beat the view, it was amazing. The apple pie with ice cream dessert was delicious!!
Quality has gone down. Glasses were dirty and not changed after we told them. Crab was old freezer burned. Cheap snow crab not king crab. Surprise 3% added to bill. Been coming here for years but no more. Make sure to check the "not recommended" reviews on yelp. Those reviews dont count so apparently that's how they falsely get higher ratings. They also cut off the champagne after the bill came and we were ignored. Please go elsewhere they don't deserve your hard earned money.
Very nice view, but otherwise, an okay restaurant. My husband says his scallops were good and cooked well. The paella wasn't very good.
I was very lucky to get a Sweethearts Booth - a private table facing the window. It was perfect for the anniversary dinner. Our server Diana was amazing. Absolute best.
Truly enjoyed sitting outside, even on a cool April evening. The heaters made it very pleasant and after being cooped-up in Indiana all winter the fresh air was wonderful. Great service and food rounded out a great evening for our group.
I've been going here for Sunday brunch for a few years now. It's always been great but this time it was a little off...it wasn't as clean as it used to be. Hopefully my next reservation it will improve.
Overpriced and noisy but the waitstaff was outstanding...I don't think I'll be back the next time I am in San Diego.....
The food wasn't as good as the last time I was here and the mimosas were very skimpy
the waitress wasn't very attentive. your pretty much paying for the view the food and service was horrible
Birthday for a friend
Good service, great views; good food.
Would definitely go back
Cool location looking back at downtown on the harbor.
The drinks are good with decent options on tap. The food was decent but I wasn't blown away. It's a good option for the scene
Our server was exceptional. Great service, knowledgeable about the restaurant scene in the harbor area. Very attentive and great smile
The view is everything here. Food is a good and above standard buffet but the view on a warm summer day is amazing. Highly recommended.
The service is always great from Ricardo! He’s been our server before and is always a pleasure!
It’s a bit warm inside the restaurant. I was sweating almost the entire time which made it a little less enjoyable.
Great views. Great server-ricardo. Ambiance a little dated
Lovely evening - great meal, great service - would definitely go again . Close to airport - wonderful place to take guests just arriving to San Diego and have a special meal.
Not very happy with the food (Had lunch) Drinks were good and service was good.
I recently went to Tom Ham's Lighthouse with family who came from Florida. I told them about previous experiences I had had, which were good. Our server was very attentive and informed about the menu. We started off with cocktails and the Seafood platter which was $79 for 1/2 lobster, mussels, clams, oysters, shrimp and scallops. Loved it!! For dinner I ordered the baked Yellowtail collar with a spinach puree, fresh spinach and panisses fries (chickpea fries) with a lobster seasoning (and small pieces of lobster)Normally I have enjoyed most of their food here, but, those fries did not taste like lobster and there were no pieces of lobster. Those were the worst thing I have ever eaten!! They were bland and the dipping sauce was horrendous. The yellowtail was cooked great, the spinach puree was creamy, but, almost my entire plate was covered with the puree and (not) fresh spinach (it was cooked). I like spinach, but not 3 cups of it!! My husband ordered the steak which was overcooked and dry. Thank Goodness the view of San Diego was awesome because I left the restaurant with a very bad after taste from the food. I will still come back, but be very picky on my choices, probably order off the raw bar menu or get appetizers.
great date night...bring your lady friend...great view
We had a bad meal and we spent all night on toilet... so all of us 4!!! I would recommend to try something else....
We came for Easter dinner. The food was amazing. The cocktail were as well. However the service was awful. Our water glasses were never refilled. When we finished our first round of drinks we were not asked if we would like anything else from the bar. After we recieved our food we were not checked on. We spent over $250 and with a bill like that I had just hoped for better service. Maybe he was having an off night. Every time I looked for our server he was by the bar watching some sporting event on the tv. But I would recommend for the food and the location.
Great, as always! This trip was for Easter brunch with family and it was perfect. Exceptional selection on the buffet and the service was wonderful. And, even on this busiest of holidays, we were escorted to our table right on time.
Always enjoyed dining at Tom Hams!!! Ambiance and service is always excellent despite it is an Easter Sunday Brunch. This is our go to spot for family, special occasions, and this is where we take visiting friends and families. Love it!!!
Wonderful Easter Brunch - this is our 3rd year! We look forward to it for months ahead! And the servers were very attentive! Good Job!
We came for a family meal the last night we were in San Diego for a visit. The view was fantastic and we enjoyed sitting outside. The service was very good--no complaints there. We were disappointed by the food. This was most likely because our group of three contained two vegetarians; we checked the menu beforehand and identified some vegetarian options so we thought it would be OK. The vegetarian platter was unseasoned steamed vegetables with three rather dry falafel and a smidgen of red pepper sauce--truly uninspired. The watermelon and quinoa salad was also rather bland. The beet salad, however, was excellent. And my husband enjoyed the bouillabaisse. So-not a good place for vegetarians, but probably a good place for people who like fish.
Amazing views and food!!
Sat outside and enjoyed the lovely evening.
Amazing food, great service (Thanks Alex), great discussions and laughs.
Tom Ham is a good restaurant for those wishing a place with a gorgeous view, available parking, conveniently located and with fairly good food. I will keep it in mind for future lunches and dinners especially for out of town visitors.
Excellent for lunch with beautiful views of San Diego Bay!
Last night of our short vacation to San Diego and we could not of picked a better place to have our last dinner. Good food , good view of the harbor and San Diego skyline and fantastic service. We will be back and we highly recommend this restaurant to all who are looking for a romantic spot .
Beautiful view with outdoor seating. Great seafood selections. The Crab Louis Salad was delicious!!
Fantastic view of the city! The food was great - I had 6 different oysters from the raw bar to start and they were wonderful. For my entree I had the Chicken and the roasted Brussels sprouts. Fabulous! I was Keto and our server was very accommodating helping me make substitutions to fit my eating lifestyle. Great experience and I highly recommend.
Great view and friendly server. But, the food was poor. The fish and chips was very greasy and the salt tasteless.
Lovely view of Mission Bay. Excellent steak, seafood and service. Full flight of stairs and no elevator so accessibility is limited, but lovely venue for those who don't have accessibility requirements.
Requested a window table for the view, wonderful.
Cesar salad a bit heavy-handed w/the pepper, but great dressing.
Salmon was wonderful, but should put a side w/it.
Ocean view was great as well as ambience and spacious setting was good. Beer selection was great and wine local wines were reasonable. But I was disappointed with food. I ordered today's special pasta - Angel hair with cream sauce and Uni (Sea urchin) on top but it was literally like porridge - cooked way too much. They should know how to treat pasta.
My number one place to bring business partners when they are here from out of town!...
