The setting is very special - be sure to ask for a table in the back overlooking the race track with a nice view to the ocean and the incoming waves. The food is always good here - I recommend the seared Ahi but we also enjoyed the bouillabaisse. Don't miss the smores brownie at the end.The prices are very... More

I have been going to this place for 27 years and all I have to say is the bar area menu is fantastic and reasonable, especially the Swordfish Taco's, clam chowder and dabs. The main restaurant is low key and inviting, with excellent fresh seafood and a killer grilled chicken Caesar salad. This Brigantine overlooks the famous Del Mar Racetrack.... More

Great food, service and atmosphere. Have dinner here in the evening after the races. They will have a huge crowd, valet parking and table service with cocktails so you will never wait long for anything. We like sitting outside overlooking the track and the Pacific

Lively Restaurant/Bar We went there for light lunch and sat up at the bar which had a wonderful view of the famous racetrack. We were lucky to get a spot as the place was packed. The NFL had just started its new season and the TV screens are brilliantly placed so that no matter where you are seated, whether at... More

Two friends and I ate dinner here two nights ago. I had the shrimp and grits. The shrimp were super tough, but overall, the taste was very good. Our service was tops, and the restaurant was very nice. It has valet parking, but we stayed at a hotel within walking distance, so no problem. The restaurant has a great selection... More

We ate here with a group of 9 people and 8 out of 9 were happy with our meals. We had oysters to start followed by a variety of entrees from fish to steak. There was a mistake with one of the salmon salads but aside from that everyone enjoyed their meal. The ambiance was fun and lively and the... More

The space has been recently renovated and was nicely done. Friendly and efficient valet parking is available. I've heard a great deal about the food and was anxious to try the fish tacos. Unfortunately, I found them to be just OK. The appetizers were also just OK. The space and the view are better than the food.

We love the Brigantine Delmar. Their fairly recent renovation is beautiful. Great great patio, bar, and food is delicious. It is my go-to place for fish tacos(don't forget their red sauce on them). Eating in the bar is fun, a little less expensive, but a great bar menu. They show horse racing on their TVs during the season. It is... More

Great clam chowder, appetizers and fresh seafood galore. You can watch wide screen tv's of Football and the Race Track at the same time looking out over the bar or restaurant and watch the Races live. Good service and beers on tap. Place for a good time and great food.

Busy place on race nights, particularly Sat. However we were seated close to our reservation time. Clam chowder not real New England quality as my Bostonian taste buds are demanding, but pretty darn good for West Coast. Split lobster was good but slightly over cooked so some of the meat stuck to the shell. Kitchen was willing to smash the... More
