Great happy hour specials and excellent poke wraps and oyster shooters. Historic boathouse with cool nautical theme.

The food at this restaurant is very good and they have a nice selection. The ambiance is nice and dress is nice casual. It's across the street from the del Coronado Hotel.

Don't be confused: this location has reopened as The Boathouse, same great historic location (the Boathouse for the Hotel Del Coronado, you know in case you arrived in your yacht in 1900) check out my review for the Boathouse to hear how much I enjoyed this great place.

I had previously reviewed the Boathouse which steadily lost its customer base as prices climbed and quality suffered. AKA...now it is called 1887 on the Bay...same ownership, mostly the same wait staff, and a new chef. Sadly things have not improved and after spending a good sum on a family dinner, we have given up and will not support this... More
