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.

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

I have been here a few times with 'clients' to discuss business over dinner. We always get a booth and that tends to be best for discussions. It is a lively crowd over the dinner hour and appears that HH is alive and well! The seafood has always been fresh and nicely prepared. Service is prompt and courteous.

We received a gift card from my daughter who couldn't believe that we had lived here our entire lives and had never been to the Brigantine...after this outing, we will make it a regular stop for sure! Apparently it is a restaurant that is old school in clientele (at least in the dining room) and on the weekends it is... More

Always excellent food & service. Top notch seafood restaurant in East County. If you like dessert, their mud pie is outstanding

This place has a great taco Tuesday and a smoking shrimp cocktail. The place is busy and loud. Be prepared

I recently had a fantastic Halibut meal at the Brigantine. It was delicious and cooked perfectly. A chocolate martini for dessert made the meal even better.

Love this restaurant for having a special meal. It is a bit more expensive that other restaurants in the area but well worth the experience. The food is excellent and the service is always top notch. Lunch is nice for a outing with the girls but the dinner is definitely for dining with that special someone.

My local restaurant. Good food. Not a cheap restaurant but all locals enjoyed a night out where Mom and Dad could get a good meal and children were considered a normal part of the dining experience.
