This restaurant is a go-to for locals. It was packed on Friday eveing when we were there, the kind of place you know about in your own hometown where friends hang out for drinks after work, birthday bashes, visits with Great Aunties, etc. There are very nice outdoor/terrace seating options, as well as large inside dining rooms. The place is... More

We all had different seafood dishes - the Sunday 3 course meal ran btw 20-26$ ( incl soup/salad, entree, dessert) - all were hot, seasoned well & nicely done. I... More

I've lived near the Brig for many years. I rely on it for good service, good food and great seating outside. I do find the indoor seating too noisy at busy times, however. I usually can find something to eat that meets my no red meat requirements. Just last week I had the swordfish tacos which were excellent.

I have been frequenting The Brigantine in La Mesa for years; however, we had not been for quite some time. My daughter surprised me with a birthday dinner at the Brig. Their Oysters Rockefeller have long been one of my favorites and I would have to say I was somewhat disappointed. While very flavorful, they were much smaller oysters than... More

The dining room & patio seating is great for dinner. If you want to stop in to watch some football, baseball or other sports Brigantine has a a good size bar and other seating area. The happy hour drinks and food menu are great. Nice ambience and very good service! One of our favorite happy hour & dinner spots close... More

Taco Tuesday is not to be missed. The mahi mahi tacos are large and delicious. Get there early because it gets very busy.

One of my favorite restaurant spots in East County. The food here is consistently excellent. We often eat in the bar area which has plenty of sit down tables and it's own menu (although you can also order off the full restaurant menu). Great happy hour destination. Nice outdoor patio seating as well. We love the turkey burger on a... More

I always look forward to the opportunity to visit this restaurant. Staff are very pleasant and efficient. Since we had tickets to Les Miserables by the CYT group on Mt. Helix, we opted to dine first at the Brigantine. We were not disappointed. It was a pleasant evening and we were ushered to one of the patio areas off the... More

Food is average at best. Noise level is very high. Best bet is ordering from bar menu but again the noise level is really really high.

If you're looking for a good happy hour experience, try the Brig in La Mesa. From one of San Diego's best fish tacos to a tasty clam chowder, the Brigantine has a variety of small bites during happy hour. A good selection of tap beers, wines, and of course any mixed cocktail you can dream up. Taco Tuesdays (Tacos for... More
