The moment one walks into this restaurant it is obvious that the LOCALS LOVE it. We had great service, great small bites and the place was hoppin' on a mid-week night. As of this writing, the owners haven't "upgraded" this place and if all the stars are aligned - EVER - they won't. With upgrade brings huge disappointment. We say... More

The Brigantine has consistently good food and a nice classic San Diego atmosphere. They're known for their fish tacos, but I really like the Napa Chicken Nachos. The fish is fresh and very tasty. Their brunch is great as well. The Coronado location is just a short walk to shops and to Hotel Del, so it's frequented by locals and... More

Ate here after a long walk across Coronado. Started with the shrimp crab fondue and fried clams. They were so good we hardly had room left for our entrees. I chose the crab stuffed prawns (wrapped in bacon and HUGE.) My companion opted for the shrimp and grits. Both were excellent and we were so disappointed that we didn't have... More

This is a great restaurant no matter what time of day you happen to wander in, but the best deals are during Happy Hour. Even though there is a limited menu at this time, the selections are varied and everyone of them is delicious! If you are looking for fantastic Eggs Benedict and some very unusual breakfast offerings, try their... More

After dozens of meals here over a few decades, I know what to expect: seafood that is fresh, old standbys, such as their mud pie, and above average margaritas. You can enjoy a conversation and rarely be distracted by the food or service. I have never had a really great meal here, but also have never had a truly bad... More

We had spent hours outside on a 90+ day and needed a break. Brigantine looked nice from the outside - it was even better inside. There didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. Dark woods, open spaces and a friendly crew welcomed us into AC heaven. The "small" portion lunch entree salads were generous sized and very... More

After the beach we were looking for a good place to eat and quench our thirst. Two separate people suggested this restaurant. It is a very nice little place which served us well with beer and appies! Nice outside seating - good service too.

If you want a nice dinner out and don't want to break the bank or put a suit on, this is your place. The clam chowder was excellent and the steaks and seafood selection was perfect.
