The restaurant has a really nice feel to it. It’s been well appointed and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. We only had a light meal; clam chowder followed by a shared plate of octopus tacos. Both were excellent. We would have no hesitation...More

Stopped in for lunch on Sunday. Hostess waves her hand and said to sit wherever and walks away. We seat ourselves inside and wait 10 minutes. Nobody comes to the table although several servers walked by. They were not busy and there seemed to be...More

At Tent City Restaurant, we want to make you feel like you are in the comfort of your own home. Our name celebrates Coronado history and we strive to honor that name by providing residents and visitors with the same warmth that John D. Spreckels provided Tent City guests back in the year 1900. Both our unique location in the heart of Coronado’s beautiful Orange Avenue, and our menu selection inspired from different tastes and styles make up for the perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner setting.
