We were just passing by as walk-ins and were let in with no cover charge. They had a Santana tribute band on and they were really good in all departments and we had a great time in this intimate venue, marred only by an argumentative drunk man. It's my first experience of the US 'sunset' scene (a tag applied elsewhere... More

I was in Humphrey's Lounge because I was alone during the busy Sunday Brunch. I was back & forth getting food but the lounge atmosphere was fun. The staff was very attentive & never far away. I enjoyed to different singers while I was there.

Enjoy great seafood selections with a view of the harbor with boats moored near by. Dining room has a nice atmosphere, staff is attentive and food is delicious! There is also a large bar area in the restaurant that is adjacent to the dining room.

I stayed at Humphrey's Half Moon for three days & made several visits to the restaurant. My first visit was to celebrate my birthday. The wine list was impressive. I chose the scallops with Risotto for dinner & it was very good. I was pleasantly surprised with a decadent chocolate dessert. Before I left the island I saw a Facebook... More

This lounge drew a very large crowd on a holiday weekend but the room was very small. Maybe management should consider a larger room for the weekend crowd

We were ushered into a very dimly lit table with a view of the harbor. It was cool in the room and the wait staff didn't really seem to be interested in serving two people. The food was okay, but the service really took away from the experience. We went into the lounge area after dinner adjacent to the restaurant... More

Have been to this venue numerous times for concerts, cocktails, food. GREAT for outdoor concerts (bring a jacket). Intimate and not too loud. Drinks and food are also very good. The event staff (i.e. hired enforcement) are a bit aggressive about people taking pictures with their phones, standing up, etc.

This is a small outdoor venue that seats around 1400. There really is not a bad seat in the house from a viewing perspective but the seats are just hard plastic and very tightly packed. We saw the Beach Boys here last September and the 'boys' did not disappoint. What did dissapoint was the venue staff who were for the... More

The Sunday buffet is well known in San Diego and well worth the price. The food selection was luxury, fresh, in large variety and delicious. Make a reservation or expect a wait. Seating extends into the lounge and you can enjoy the live music or sit in the other room with the great view. Either way it is very special.
