Wonderful views of estuary, train, ocean! Excellent seafood!

We got a table by the window so that I could enjoy the view of the estuary and my husband could enjoy the trains going by (quietly I might say). Our friends enjoyed a meal of scallops and a meal of steak. I ordered sole picata over mashed potatoes and broccolli while my husband ordered the mahi... read more

Enjoyed my first visit to Brigantine Del Mar. Friend who knows it well recommended the Brigantine for pre-Belly Up fueling and medication. Valet was easy and frugal, reservation was recognized and we were seated within 1 minute of entry at 5:30PM on a Saturday. On server Todd's prompt, we ordered a combo platter of east and west coast oysters with... More

OK, so I have been to the Solana Beach/Del Mar areas multiple times over the past few years and I don't know how I didn't know about this gem of a restaurant until now! We went on a Wednesday which is half price wine night and they had some great choices that were 50% off such as The Prisoner and... More

Enjoyed our drinks, the food, the view and the staff. It is a bit noisy in the bar but that is to be expected when people are having a great time.

Brigantine is one of those restaurants that we choose for special occasions. With the dual views of the waves crashing against the beach and the historic race track, it is a great location. They treat larger parties well. There were 9 of us on this last visit as we celebrated the life of my grandmother. It was a really nice... More

The dinners are very good and feature very fresh ingredients. Happy hour in the bar is a good value. During racing season there are flies and I mean pesty flies. You would think they would do something that is more effective but not sure they can help it given the proximity to the racetrack. Great views of ocean and track.
