While the restaurant isn't on the ocean, it still was very scenic and it had great food! My family of 4 adults and 1 child had a variety of dishes and all enjoyed their food. There was even a "wild" parrot that decided to visit the restaurant and fly around the patrons. We ended up getting dinner and a free... More

We love the Brigantine restaurants and this is the 3rd location where we have eaten. We ate lunch out on the balcony one day. We ordered ceviche and were we ever surprised! The portion was so generous. We also split a shrimp and crab louie salad and we were so glad we did. Those portions were very generous, too. By... More

A return to the Brigantine is always a great choice. We started with happy hour in the bar overlooking the lagoon & Del Mar's racetrack. My husband enjoyed the oysters on the 1/2 shell & sashimi, both were perfection! My tastes more tame...chick wings & mahi- mahi tacos...delicious. I tried 2 different margaritas & preferred the Milagros best. He enjoyed... More

Ate there with a large business group on a Friday. Place was very busy, but not overly packed. The service started out friendly but it proved difficult to get a refill on the sodas, and I heard another table complaining that they didn't have silverware to eat their entrees with. I ordered the daily special, which was just ok. Others... More

Last week we tried the Brigantine restaurant on Shelter Island and it was very good. Today we found ourselves in Del Mar at lunch time so decided to try the Brigantine there. My, it was even better. The restaurants are. Dry different in appearance. The Del Mar location has a huge patio area with great views. Food was actually better... More

This place has been a favorite for my wife and I over the past several years when we come down to visit Del Mar during the horse racing season. You can sit on the outside deck facing the racetrack and enjoy their amazing mule drinks and I'd recommend one of the 2 taco plates that includes delicious cole slaw and... More

Dropped in here before the track opened and enjoyed everything: view, food and service. Menu is loaded with something for everyone and the bar has a variety of adult beverages. Don't drive by...this is a must stop!!
