Usually a treat to visit the Brig, a local favorite, but not this time. Had spacing for the pandemic, which would have been fine if we were seated on the upper decks with views of the race track, Del Mar beach and south to La Jolla. We were down the stairs on the lawn in the back, with a view of a hedge. Portable TV screens were placed inside and outside, for racing season. We could hear the announcer call the race, even though the stands were empty. Diners included an eclectic array of horse people (owners, staff, trainers, friends). Very slow service. Didn’t get bread for more than 20 minutes. Then salads after 30 minutes. Enjoyed the Brig House Salad ($7.75), with dried cranberries, candied pecans, hearts of palm, crumbled blue cheese in mixed baby lettuces, in a house vinaigrette. The Wagyu burger ($17.50) was fine, but the French fries were fat and soggy (the server recommended asking for curly or other frieds). The seasonal scallop dish ($29.50) had small portions and the scallops were undercooked. Need to give it another try and ask not to be in the hole again.

Venue is right off coats highway with valet parking $6.00. Very nautical looking restaurant over looking a beautiful eddy that comes in from the surf plus across tracks to the East is Del Mar horse track. The food was exceptional had the blackened tuna that melted like butter. Wife had salad with chunks of lobster that was tasty. A variety of mixed drinks and micro beers along with great service made the sunny 70 degree day memorable. $$$ price with casual wear. Would return again.

Having traveled many places in and outside the US, our server Trent, gave us world class Service and Food recommendations-And the food was delicious! When we travel back to San Diego, even if we stay in Coronado or downtown, we will be sure to go out of our way to visit this location again. Trent even went above and beyond to make a list of must-see’s while we were here. Five Stars all around!!! Thank you Trent!

We began with oysters on the half shell, which had a fresh tang and were accompanied by an adequate amount of the usual condiments. The coconut shrimp were plentiful for a starter, although a bit overfried (dark); the accompanying corn and mango salsa was visually appealing but lacked flavor due to the underripe condition of the mango. We had three rounds of cocktails, which were well-sized and brought quickly when ordered. Noise volume was a bit high, making it difficult at times for us to hear each other across our table. Valet parking costs money, which is puzzling since the valet only serves restaurant patrons. We heard about the Brigantine from the horse racing announcers, although we did not sample the oyster shooters they recommended. Overall, an easy and enjoyable restaurant experience.

A local favorite! I go here quite frequently and have never been disappointed by their menu. Whether you're looking for seafood, a burger, or pasta you'll always get a tasty dish. My personal favorite are their grilled fish tacos and shrimp cocktail. I also highly recommend getting a skinny margarita from the bartender Jay, he's the best!

It took me years before I would try there fish tacos one of their signature dishes. It just didn’t sound appetizing. For the last 20 years I’ve been a fan. They are craveable. When my son is in town he insists we go. We meet friends there for a casual evening. The place is always hoping and has a fun atmosphere. We always sit in the bar unless it’s a girls gathering then we sit in the restaurant. I also love their crab cakes for lunch. Service is great

We visited this restaurant on a weekday in June. It was fairly busy and we were sat in a booth. Our waiter acted like he was bothered to serve us. His mask was under his nose. When he finally brought the bread basket, it had four rolls and there were five of us. The appetizers were great but the mains were under-seasoned [Ahi Ahi plate] and over saturated with other ingredients [the halibut]. We ordered a great wine but overall the service and food were meh...

Ate at this restaurant on a recommendation, and we’re not disappointed. The food was very good and what we ordered was better than average. The restaurant has a diverse seafood menu with a lot of different options, Service was fine and there’s a very nice view of the Del Mar racetrack. All in all a good place to eat in Del Mar along the coast highway.

Beautiful restaurant, indoor, partially indoor and outdoor dining. We ate outdoor but the water views are best in the partial indoor dining. Fresh oysters were delicious. We had the fish and chips which was a really hearty amount of food, a chopped chicken salad, the swordfish, coconut, shrimp, clam chowder and a Caesar salad. The clam chowder was just ok. Everything else we ate was incredible. Beautiful outdoor dining. Great service.

This is my favorite San Diego area restaurant. Highly recommend a reservation. We had a party of 6 on a busy Saturday night. Service was top notch, ordered several appetizers, a variety of drinks and the house wine. Outstanding! The entree’s were all fantastic. From the fish and chips to the night’s special, steak and lobster all exceeded expectations.

We stopped in for lunch and after a wait, they wanted to seat us back to back with another booth. Being at risk, we declined and they found a seat outside. The food was good, but not worth getting sick for.

No one wearing masks have a hard time believing that everyone in that crowded restaurant was vaccinated which is the reg in San Diego. Unvaccinated must wear masks. Food good service average

Our waitress was mean. She never took our order. We had to order at the bar then she came by to drop off our food.. never came back to check on us ..we had to go upfront to get our check from hostess. It was fathers day and we were not even acknowledged. My dad knows the owners very well and was quite the disappointed to be treated this way on this day. It wasn't very busy. The girl had long pony tail dark Hair. Looked Latina. Very rude.
