The food here was higher end bar food and was quite expensive. I am a vegetarian and the options for me were pretty limited. I ordered a portabello mushroom burger and it was akin to eating a tire. My friends got fish tacos and fajitas and were more pleased with their meals. I probably wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

My husband and I have eaten out in Ocean Beach for many years, but we never had occasion to eat dinner at the Albatross, just lunch. Always thought they served mainly bar food. Big misperception. We ate dinner there last night for the first time and it was the best meal I've ever had in Ocean Beach. It's off season... More

We ate dinner at this restaurant yesterday. I thought the outside dining area and inside of the restaurant were nice. However, the service was terrible. One couple were seated approximately 5 minutes after my party of four people. In the time it took to get two rounds of drinks and our food orders in, the other couple had ordered, had... More

The food was really just OK. The soup was excellent, the appetizers were pretty good but the steak sandwich was terrible in my opinion. Service was up to par and the prices are OK. Nothing really great or negative to say about this place. Dinner for two cost around $70 with a beer each including tip.

Great little patio to sit outside, or there is indoor seating, good beer selection, excellent service. Try the fish tacos, they were awesome!

The food was good, but the staff there seems mostly disinterested in really helping you enjoy the meal there. The service is not rude, its hard to put your finger on it, it is just indifferent, which is hard to complain to anyone about, but affects the opinion of the meal nonetheless. This appears to be a tradition at Albatross... More

We truly enjoyed the peach bruschetta as our appetizer. My friend ate the scallops and I had the pasta both were very good.

The steamers, baked clam, fish tacos, calamari, and more were great. Split between friends over drinks. Very cool.
