Feeling a little under dressed for some of the more well known restaurants in Dana Point we ended up here and were given a warm welcome and the option to sit outside. Free Wi-Fi and prompt service was appreciated as we had the kids with us and the drinks and food were reasonably priced for the area. The food was... More

Did not want to wait for one of the local popular restaurants at Dana Point Harbor. We decided to try The Brig and we were very happy we did. For half the price we got beautifully prepared food and attentive service in a relaxed traditional atmosphere. We ordered Blackened Tilapia and Red Snapper. Both were excellent and perfectly prepared. The... More

Delicious food, decent servings, good prices and friendly service... makes dining here very enjoyable. Good selection on the menu and take out is available. The outdoor patio is really nice & it's pet friendly. Great local place...

If you have a dog, you can have your dog dine with you on the patio. I don't, so I would have preferred a dog-free restaurant.

If your in Dana Point Harbor you have to eat at the Brig! Older place that needs a face lift but great food, great servers and great atmosphere!!

This was our third visit, good parking, although we walked from our hotel, always had good portions and good American food, we are from England, and we highly recommend the house carafe litre of white wine, we think it is good value for money and a good atmosphere and good staff. We would go again and again.

This is one of those places that locals avoid. Over priced with surly servers it is a tourists nightmare and a local embarrassment. Coupons are always available at the neighboring hotel and in the penny saver but by the time you meet the requirements expect $25 for a mediocre breakfast for two. Denny's escque this hopefully will disappear in the... More

If you're looking for fine dining, the Brig is probably not for you. But if you want a decent breakfast at a fair price near the harbor, I would recommend you stop in to the Brig. I usually sit in the outdoor patio with my dog. We're able to take a beautiful walk in the area after eating (yes they... More

Thought I'd give it a try after seeing it driving by for years. Very comfy setting and staff most friendly. Food was good and plentiful. Many menu options available and staff willing to consider special requests.
