Seafood

Tom Ham’s Lighthouse was built in 1971 by a man who was not afraid to put his name on his product. Rooted in warm welcomes & excellent food, Tom Ham made his lifelong dream a reality. Tom Ham’s Lighthouse is the only restaurant in the US to have a USCG operated & maintained Lighthouse attached to it. You can locate us on any modern nautical map as Beacon #9. Featuring a 100% responsibly resourced seafood menu & award winning Sunday Champagne Brunch, we are a must when it comes to the San Diego food scene. The dining room, purposely shaped like the state of California, allows for groups as grand as 50 yet private enough for a couple’s night out. Holiday brunches have been long time family traditions for many San Diegans. Start your family’s tradition this next holiday. With the best views of the Downtown City Skyline, Coronado & San Diego Bay, Tom Ham's is & remains a San Diego tradition in dining excellence since 1971.

We started with Calamari and Ceviche. Both were so delicious!! Our server was kind and attentive. We celebrated my daughter’s college graduation with our family. It was memorable…can’t wait to go again.

I had the clam chowder and a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp that was very good. My girlfriend had the scallops which were delicious, and the beet salad, which she also truly enjoyed. All-in-all, the views were great, the ambiance was very pleasant, the service was good, and the food was very good.

Not sure if it has to do with the vaulted ceilings or what but we could barely hear each other at the table without leaning on and raising our voices. I was going for a nice upscale brunch for my moms birthday but the crowded room and noise level made it feel like a bingo hall. Def not what I had in mind.

Sipping a Cab with a beautiful Lady (celebrating her Birthday) and enjoying a magnificently prepared meal. Life doesn’t get much better. Thanks to all at Tom Hams for making it a day to remember

Probably top 3 buffets ever in terms of food served. The views of the bay is outstanding. Cons: The service on entry was incredibly rude. Three hostesses appeared grumpy and acted as though I was bothering them when I checked in to our reservation. The head hostess asked me to come back in 10 minutes at the exact time of our reservation, which is totally fine. But she asked if we'd prefer indoor or outdoor and I said I'd check with the Moms (Mother's Day). I stood in line after getting an answer, and when I gave them my request, they proceeded to explain to me that we likely won't have a choice because they are very busy (it's Mothers Day after all, blah blah..). In summary, the welcome (or lack thereof) by the staff was not what you'd expect for a venue that charges $80 per seat. The rest of the staff, while not as rude, were not particularly nice. It's enough to tip the scales in favor of visiting other restaurants next time.

We were running behind our slotted time but I called in and informed them we are on our way and will be a little bit late. Arrived at 12 pm and got a table right away. The place was packed (being Mother’s Day) but there was plenty of food and accommodation was good. We enjoyed our meal from multitude of choices. It was a nice experience overall.

Unfortunately the food was just meh. Not a single plate was delicious, all just passable. Hoping they get a new chef, because with better food, I would be back all the time!

I would have preferred them to let me know there was a charge for bread. I think it was an overkill when you’re already buying appetizer, dinner, drinks and dessert. And on top of that a surcharge!

When we called the restaurant they did not have an opening, so we were delighted. We got an amazing seat outside, our server Christina was impeccable!! Our food was delicious! Overall, it was a great night out!
