Happy hour

We went for Taco Tuesday happy hour. Seafood tacos were very good. Highly recommend the swordfish taco. Oysters were good too! Drinks were so-so. Attentive waitress but she didn't know what kind of oysters were available nor did she know what the house gin was. She said

Since the remodeling and reopening, this restaurant has become a real"hot spot" for lunch and dinner. Great happy hour appetizers and wine selections. Outside patio is the place to enjoy a meal with family and friends.

Part of me likes the food, service, and atmosphere, but ... My scallops were perfect; my husband looked at my plate and said, "Only three?" It was enough for me considering I knew there would be dessert. Maybe not enough for a hearty appetite. The mashed potatoes were nothing exceptional. The featured Chardonnay was okay. The dessert - 50/50 ...... More

Top-notch food, staff, nice outdoor patio. Heard about this place on Open Table. If you're in the area, this is a great spot

a friend works here, we use her discount. nice atmospher, but you cannot eat atmosphere. food good, but portions left me hungry enough to go home and make a sandwich. just another trendy place to eat, need to increase portions, they were more like appetizers. if hungry, go eslewhere. not for biker appetites.

We've been to the Brigantine many times and have had mostly good experiences. Then we returned lately for the first time since the restaurant remodel. Lots of changes to the building - I can deal with that, although it got a lot louder throughout the restaurant. Unfortunately, the menu changed a lot eliminating some of our favorites - like prime...

I haven't been to this Brigantine restaurant for many years and not since they remodeled. We went last night and didn't expect a wait but when we got there it was extremely crowded, 45 minute wait. Next time I will make reservations. But we were lucky that within about 15 minutes a table in the bar was available. They allow... More

We are enjoying Sunday brunch at the remodeled Brigantine, Escondido, CA. I never really liked the dark, dull and unexciting old Brig. but since the new remodeling and the new menu, it has become one of my favorites. Their Swordfish Fish taco plate is so good and for $13, it's a great buy. You can have champagne with your lunch... More

My wife and I have been to this restaurant before, but it has been over two years. To our surprise the restaurant has been completely remodeled. Very fashionable and electric. Fish tacos is a house specialty and according to my wife the best she has had since our prior visit. That is one of the reasons we keep returning. Restaurant... More

We have been to two of the restaurants in this small chain. This one and the one at De Mar. Until now we have always preferred the Del Mar restaurant, because of it's décor and layout . We returned to Escondido this year to find the Brigantine there had been completely remodelled. Gone was the old dark wood and massive... More
