I truly hate to lower the overall rating because the service was incredible. Oksana did an incredible job and couldn’t have been more friendly. The drinks and appetizers were good to great but the cold platter had something to be desired. The shrimp were tough, the oysters were extremely slimy, and the clams tasted off. To add the platter was quite expensive so the expectations are high. In the future, I would suggest steering people towards the hot dishes as those seemed to be a better bet.
Fish & chips: Fish overcooked, flavorless, dry & tough, encased in soggy, greasy, thick fried dough-like covering. Appetizer calamari puddle of grease at bottom of dish. No ice tea choices except usual boring, plain type.
Delightful experience on a beautiful day with a gracious hostess and server.
The food service and ambiance was outstanding. Eddie was our waiter and he was the best
Toms Hams was a delight, from the service we received to the food. We were seated outside with a beautiful view of the harbor,I highly recommend Tom Hams!
Thank you for a great evening.
Our waiter was very professional and attentive. The ambiance was fabulous. I will definitely bring any out of town guests there to show off San Diego.
First time there - loved the whole experience and the food was amazing!!
Since it was the last night of our girl’s trip, we decided to treat ourselves to this beautiful place. The scenery was awesome and the food unique and delicious. Our waitress brought us a special dessert to celebrate our trip. She was very helpful in suggesting drinks and menu items. Special evening!
Service was slow and I was not seated for a while even with reservations.
They’re one of those restaurants that adds a 4% fee just because of covid hardships… I get it but I’m not sure a restaurant like this needs the assistance for that long. I really dislike that because I’d rather pay more and know you’re covering the benefit costs of all of your staff.
Anyway, selection of dinner plates was a bit lacking, fairly safe, but decent. Staff was really superb and costs were ok. The views are what you’re really paying for and the drinks are pretty darn good too.
First, our servers name is Jacob. He was fabulous. Can't say enough good and positive things about him. Although we find this place a little pricey, it was worth it for our special occasion. The food was excellent and the view was superb. We had reservations for 6:00pm, but got there about 45 minutes early and we were seated immediately.
Had a brief stay in San Diego and got last minute reservations for dinner. What a great place. The view was spectacular and the food and service were outstanding! Highly recommend!
The view was amazing, service ok but the ambiance had a lot of room to improve! Overall ok experience but not a place I’d go back for a special occasion.
Beautiful view of the city, free parking, and great waiters. Not impressed with food portion and quality.
Great scenery and better service. I cant remember my server’s name but she was amazing. Will return soon!
Tom Hams is always a homerun
Hermoso lugar ❤️
View, food and service was perfect!
Great place for dinner.
Most spectacular location. Copious food. friendly and competent srevice.
All around Great!
Great dinner and service, beautiful views. Short ribs and scallops were very good.
Go for the views not the food. Mediocre at best. All of our serverd wore stained shirts. Not very professional
We went for our 25th anniversary! Amazing views, great service and wonderful food! Highly recommend!
Great food, experience and views! Cannot wait to visit again.
Fish and chips was not good at all. Breading was too thick, greasy and no flavor at all. I love this restaurant but they have to revisit their menu. This is not the Tom Hams Lighthouse I know. Everything else was great but we came here for the food.
Wonderful service, very polite staff, stunning views, and the food was absolutely wonderful.
Amazing restaurant! Desiree is the nicest server and the views are incredible! Definitely worth making a reservation and going for the sunset!
Try to reserve the Sunday brunch at-least two weeks in advance. It is very popular! Great food and great deal if you come hungry. The unlimited crab and lobster is what we go for!
Sarah is awesome, it’s lovely to have the buffet back!
Food lacked seasoning and flavor. Great variety, but food was not warm.
We love Sunday brunch!! Food is excellent! Drinks are amazing! We try to book every 5-7 weeks. This time we had Sarah as our server. Great service and look forward to our next visit!
We had a lovely dinner outside overlooking the bay at night, it was perfect for a casual romantic date night.
I ordered salmon, calamari, lobster bisque, all were absolutely tasty. The service was excellent and the view was beautiful.
See you next time love this place
Thought it was absolutely beautiful and great food just wish we had bread to start.
We chose Tom Hams Lighthouse based on reviews for our wedding anniversary celebration. It turned out to be an excellent decision. Our waitress, Melania, was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. And because I had mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary, she brought us a complimentary brownie sundae to share—it was delicious and very special.
Neither my husband nor I was very hungry, so I had 4 oysters on the half shell along with a roasted beet salad. My husband chose the shrimp cocktail. All selections were beautifully presented and tasted delicious.
A wedding was taking place in the garden below our table on the outdoor patio. It was an ideal spot for a memorable meal and special celebration. We will definitely return!
Great happy hour bar menu! Best selections ever.
Lotsa fun sitting on outdoor patio.
We’re locals and had sort of forgotten about Tom Hams….our dinner with friends was like re-discovering a real jewel in your backyard. Great service (Raymond), excellent food selection and preparation, a killer view and priced very reasonably. We won’t forget to keep Tom Hams on our “go to” list with visitors and our own evenings out.
