Great oysters! Had 2 dozen blue points during happy hour for $36. So fresh. They have a large assortment on happy hour 2 make a meal. The swordfish taco is great, blackened or not. Large spinach salad was enough for 2. They were also accommodating on sauteing the calamari instead of frying which was delicious! Nice atmosphere, great drink prices~one... More

So far we haven't had a bad meal at Brigantine. We always go to the restaurant in Coronado Island but yesterday we had lunch in Escondido. Our waiter Pat was excellent, he explained the menu and checked constantly how our food was. We had the fish tacos with a side dish of blue cheese and bacon potato salad and coleslaw.... More

We are regular customers of the Brigantine. We always start with a bowl of their very flavorful clam chowder, and then we have the grilled, blackened fish tacos. So good! There is a Happy Hour and Patio / Bar menu which provides a good cost savings, so be sure to ask about that and to arrive early. The fish tacos... More

We ate here with family for dinner and had a wonderful experience. The restaurant just underwent a major renovation and it is a beautiful atmosphere. The food is outstanding and the service even better. Highly recommend for couples and family. Not too sure about little ones though. It is more of an adult atmosphere in my opinion. Go and enjoy!

We've been to the Brig several times over the years, and watched the recent remodeling of this location. Curious about the changes, we decided to give it a try for a late lunch/early dinner. The decor/atmosphere is much improved, at least for my taste. Very clean, open and bright. We were seated in the bar area - this and an... More

Went Tuesday night yet packed, very busy. Great food, small portion and I thought everything was away over-priced, especially drinks.

Well, lets start by saying I have been going to the Brig 2-3 times a month for years and years, the swordfish tacos, the oysters Rockefeller, the Calamari appetizer, usually pretty much the staple of what I order. The Brig prior to the remodel, had character!, it was cozy, albeit a bit dusty, but always was set apart by being... More

The restaurant has recently been remodeled. This has always been one of our favorite restaurants for a nice dressy night out. The new décor is beautiful, but in doing the remodel, they have removed almost all the acoustic dampers, so the noise level was pretty high. The service is excellent and the food is great. If you don't mind a... More
