Great brunch! The staff was super friendly and safe during these pandemic times. The ladies at the front desk deserve a raise!
Sat outside, awesome view. Service and food great as always!
Was celebrating my moms birthday and Able was our server. He made the experience wonderful. Thank you!!!I was only in town for the day and it was a great lunch. But the service was outstanding.
There were a few people that recommended this restaurant. Unfortunately, I was not impressed. The food was ok - there was plastic in my pasta. I loved being out by the ocean, but it would have been nice if they used space heaters as it was slightly chilly and it made the food cold very quickly. The staff was nice but I feel as though the server could have been a little more attentive.
Beautiful view on terrace, excellent food and presentation, excellent service
LOVE THE SERVICE!
LOVE THE VIEW!
We love the location but food was bland
Ham's has done an excellent job adjusting to the California law forbidding restaurants from serving indoors. The food quality has not suffered and the view of the San Diego skyline across the harbor is unrivaled.
My favorite outdoor dining views in San Diego! The service is so good, the seafood is yum, the drinks are great.
Great food, service, view
The best, most authentic Crab Louie salad in town. Good wine list. Well spaced tables and umbrellas overlooking San Diego Bay. Our favorite server, Sarah, still employed! Life is good!
Food was delicious. We had a wonderful time! Excellent customer service. Fantastic view of downtown San Diego 😍
The view of the city and ocean sitting on the deck was amazing!
I would have preferred to have been on upper level, but was not given a choice. David was an excellent waiter.
We get the whole fish every year for our anniversary so we are partial to the lighthouse. Married here 11 years ago. Dang. Time flies. Outdoor dining Sd skyline across the bay. Service was excellent. Great way to end our day.
Wonderful brunch on the water.
We are wondering if the free flowing champagne was actually champagne and not sparkling cider! They kept filling are glass but nothing for the price hope it was real champagne
Great food, view, and kind service and they made my girlfriends birthday very special.
My wife and I enjoyed a perfect evening on the patio at Tom Ham's. I have always wanted to take her here and it was perfect as expected. They take all the necessary precautions for Covid which really put my wife at ease. The servers, food, view and everything in between was spot on perfect.
All restaurants are doing outdoor dining, but Tom Ham's does it best!. In addition to their regular patio, they have taken advantage of their large outdoor event space, allowing them to serve many customers with tables adequately spaced. They are also serving a broad menu, unlike many restaurants that have limited their selections. The octopus appetizer was very creative and outstanding as was the cauliflower (I ordered two apps instead of an entree). My husband tried the bouillabaisse for the first time and it, too, was excellent. The service was friendly and efficient, and they were understandably not crowding us. And, of course, the view is just outstanding. After not dining out for months, it felt like a real treat. We are looking forward to our next visit.
It was perfect
Celebrated my retirement ! Atmosphere was perfect! The oysters - we had several dozen were excellent! The whole fish Branzino was amazing but wanted the “sides” from the salmon entree and got charged for that. I would definitely come back 😊
Perfect day for the patio. Food was great...Service was attentive. All civid precautions were in place. Try the creme brulee...excellent.
Great table on their outdoor patio, nice view of downtown San Diego and the bay of Harbor Island. Service was great, Mai Tai drink is strong, in a good way! Food was delicious. Upscale place to spend a wonderful lunch on a sunny day.
As always great food , great service and great price ! Shout out to Molly you are an awesome waitress . You made our visit pleasant and assured as about safety being done by the restaurant during pandemic . We will definitely come back again .
Great food, great service, great view. Perfect for date night
We had an amazing time celebrating our daughters 7’s birthday on the patio. Great service and great food. We will definitely be back!
Friendly saff, beautiful view, excellent food. Went to celebrate our anniversary, the waiter and staff were so sweet and surprised us with a chocolate cake. Would highly recommend.
We have enjoyed brunch and dinner at Tom Hamms for many years! So spending our 20th wedding anniversary here was just perfect!
Excellent waterfront outdoor dining experience overlooking San Diego harbor with incredible views. Great menu to choose from. Good beverage selection of beer/wine/mixed drinks. Enjoyed a platter of oysters/scallops/shrimp/mussels/clams as appetizer and went with the New York for meal - very tender and flavorful. Service was great. Highly recommend.
Excellent and unbeatable views.
This place is beautiful and yummy! Super fresh and worth the prices (although more than your average restaurants). It was my boyfriend and mines anniversary, which we noted in our reservations, and we were surprised with a complimentary dessert that was delicious. It made the experience that much more enjoyable! Highly recommend for a date night, girls night, or any celebratory event.
Very friendly waiter and good food
Tom Ham's continues to be a delightful gem. The food is always excellent and you can't beat the setting. The value is tremendous as well. Thank you, Tom Ham's!
First time at Tom Hams and it didn’t disappoint. Food was exquisite, had an amazing view and our waitress Diana gave us quality service. She made us feel at home and was the reason for a 5 star experience!
They're doing an amazing job given all the new restrictions due to Covid. My favorite brunch spot
Great spot for Sunday brunch, definitely worth it for the seafood and champagne alone. Will be coming back soon!
Tom Hams is always a great go to place for Sunday Brunch. Outside seating only during COVID. I prefer outside anyway. Nice breeze under their umbrella shades, and a great view of the city. They bring you several items out at once, and the quality of the food is just as good as before. The food also comes out quickly. I only wish the champagne came a little faster. My glass was empty for a bit, and our server poured surrounding tables a few times before coming back to us. Besides that, great experience as always.
They are very clean and sanitary- thank you to all the staff and the manager Luz - extremely great people!
Overall the experience was good however there was still a wait to get seated even with a reservation. We were seated about 20/25mins last our reservation.
