With the remodel, this is now a lively, entertaining place to meet up with friends. It's light, bright and we'll served. No relationship to earlier '50's style.

Last week my wife and I had lunch at the Brigantine in Escondido, CA. This was our fourth or fifth visit, second since remodeling. Food and Service remain very good. Outside seating is available although we chose inside due to the heat of the day. Self parking is adequate. This restaurant shares property with a Vons retail store and gas... More

This was our third visit since the remodel and it's going to be our last. The place has become too sterile and divided up. The menu has been reduced and the prices increased. We sat in the main dining room in two seat chairs but unfortunately the height of the table relative to the chairs is off. I am a... More

Best fish tacos in SoCal. Use some California chile sauce. Brig house salad is awesome. Traditional clam chowder is all world. Don't miss the classic calamari & the jalapeño white sauce. About the jalapeño white sauce, if it were socially acceptable I would order a mug and drink it straight. Eat here, trust me. 😉👍🏼

For about $20 we had delicious tacos and drinks. It was very good, made fresh, and more than enough for dinner. Have to get there early as the place is packed by 5:30.

I try to be fair and objective with my reviews, so I waited until after my second visit to this restaurant to voice my opinion. On both visits the service was abominable. The first time I chalked it up to not enough servers for the size of the crowd. This time our server appeared to only have two tables and... More

Happy hour is great here with good drinks and snacks. The patio is nice this time of year and they have heaters if it gets chilly. Service is friendly. They even gave us a free dessert because the waitress overheard us say it was my husband's birthday...a very nice surprise!

Since the remodeling and reopening, this restaurant has become a real"hot spot" for lunch and dinner. Great happy hour appetizers and wine selections. Outside patio is the place to enjoy a meal with family and friends.

Part of me likes the food, service, and atmosphere, but ... My scallops were perfect; my husband looked at my plate and said, "Only three?" It was enough for me considering I knew there would be dessert. Maybe not enough for a hearty appetite. The mashed potatoes were nothing exceptional. The featured Chardonnay was okay. The dessert - 50/50 ...... More
