I have been to the Brig several times. My favorite time is happy hour for the fish tacos. Fresh, hot, and 2 are more than enough to make a complete dinner. Nice selection of beers to wash them down.

I can't wait to go back and get the Wok Charred Ahi tuna! One of my most favorite meals! From the way the tuna was prepared and cooked (seared and vey rare) to the accompaniment of the stir-fried veggies and rice… such perfect tastes put together! I ate the entire dish, and it was quite a lot of food. My... More

They have the best fish tacos around the area. Great Happy Hour and good service. It does get pretty noisy at times. Nice view of the Del Mar racetrack

Recommended by my surfing instructor after a session near Powerhouse Park. She recommended getting fish tacos. Grilled Mahi Mahi fish tacos, coleslaw, and chips were excellent. The service was great (Kate, checked in with me a number of times). They have valet parking there for 4 dollars, but if you are willing to walk a bit you can find free... More

Here on a business meeting and had 13 for dinner. They passed the first test as it was very full on a Tuesday but they quickly, and without any issue, added a table & chairs to assist in accommodating the odd number. We had some Crab dip and some different shrimp appetizers and they were spot on. Beverages were varied... More

A little pricey but worth it for the views alone. This place has a really good feel about it and is one our favorite lunch / dinner places. When clients come into town... we go here for lunch. When I can't entertain them at night... I send them here. Close your eye. Throw a dart at the menu. You will... More

Brigantine offers a great happy hour menu, including the best fish tacos, calarmari sandwich, and cioppino. Dining room and patio offers great views of the Del Mar Racetrack, and the ocean.
