We were in San Diego on a beautiful mark day. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the best guacamole we had curing our trip! The fresh salsa bar was an added pleasure. Their chips were awesome. We highly recommend a visit to Rockin Baja Lobster!

The food and atmosphere here is terrific. The fishpool size cocktails are sublime and there was a musician playing on the Saturday night we attended. A great restaurant that we would go back to again.

I tend to stay away from chain restaurants but this one always keeps me coming back. Great atmosphere, nice salsa bar with many different flavors and you can help yourself to as much or as little as you want. The big platter with shrimp, lobster, carne asada, pollo asado, beans and rice is excellent. So much food which easily serves... More

We ate here on Saturday the 14th and we had a lovely lunch.... I did notice a new addition to the Margarita menu (which I suggested several months back); a Blue Margarita.... Too bad I didn't see it until after I had ordered, I'd have tried it! Our waitress, Ellie (?), I do apologize if I have this wrong..... Was... More

Hands down the best seafood I have had on my many trips to San Diego. The atmosphere was fun. It is an indoor/outdoor dining style and the food is reasonably priced. This place is a staple for me and I recommend it to all who visit.

Good food...had a grand Marnier mimosa that for the price I was a bit disappointed in the size. Had lobster tacos with rice and beans. Nice sized lobster pieces without too much fill (lettuce).

We dined here in a large group and all were happy with their meals. The fish tacos were delicious and the tortilla soup was amazing!

I've been to this restaurant twice now, and the place offers excellent mexican dishes. The tequila lime shrimp is great, and the margaritas are good. Parking is free, and the service is great.

First off, who wants to spend time searching for a parking spot when you are hungry. So for me the valet parking here is such an added bonus! Rocking Baja lobster fits the bill for everybody, including the grandkids. There is often live music and even though it is outside, covered seating it provides to be a cool place to... More
