Great location with a busy bar, great views including of the Del Mar Racetrack. Food is good, not great but the menu is diverse and priced reasonably. Enjoy!

We went here for lunch. Great views of Del Mar Race Track and ocean. Food and service were great. Not as crowded as other Del Mar restaurants. Price was right.

This place was great. Can't think of a better place for a business meeting of drinks of lunch. The staff was great, food incredible and the atmosphere perfect. Outdoor and indoor seating available. Can't wait to bring the wife!

Our group of 4 had high expectations after reading the reviews, but we were pretty disappointed with the food we received (vs the price it cost). The ambiance, location and service were great (though nothing extraordinary) but the food was mostly just average (oysters, swordfish, halibut, and grouper all tasted pretty bland...though the scallops were nice). However, for a $160... More

Went here for dinner. Beautiful open views of the Del Mar Raceway and surrounding areas. Fish entrees were enjoyed by all. Selection of drinks was great including a whole list of different Mules.... Great choice. Choose a table closer to the bar rather than in the back area for best views.

We had a great time at "The Brig." Although not necessary we did make a reservation and were seated at a lovely outdoor table. The menu was excellent, it had good choices for our kids (8 + 11), and the desserts were huge! Our server was very pleasant as were all the patrons we encountered. One note: we were there... More

Located on the coast Highway at Via De La Valle, this is a great place to eat if you are going to the Del Mar Races or to the San Diego County Fair. The atmosphere is very relaxing and service is excellent. Food is Delicious also.

We had a crowd of seven for dinner on a Sunday night. We had two children with us. Our dinner took well over two hours. We were told the water was coming three times before it arrived, 20 minutes after we were seated. Our drink order was taken thirty minutes after we were seated. The food was generally good, although... More
