“Great view of race track”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

No matter where you're seated, you have a view of the Del Mar racetrack! But be prepared for the Amtrack to whiz by! The fish tacos are to die for. Crab Louie was OK. Decent wine list. Weather permitting, try to sit outside, that's the best view! Also can see ocean on good day. Service was swift; noise level can be high inside. Valet parking.

“Good food with a view”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We have been to Brigantine restaurants before. The food is always good and reasonably priced. What makes this place special is the view. It's like your actually in the Del Mar race course. This place gets very, very busy in the early evening so try to book. It is a large restaurant so when it's busy there are a lot of people around.

“It will surprise you”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Yes it looks like it will be a tourist trap...but we all got great fish tacos and crab cakes and they were quite good. Service was quick and with a smile. And our outside view of the racetrack was a plus. Upbeat atmosphere...fair drink prices...we would all go back.

“Below average food, random service”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We sat at some 'overflow' tables in the back area that are clearly used for wedding receptions. Stacks of white chairs were off to the side. the Tortillas and sauce felt like a jalapeño velveeta cheese with stale chips. Salmon dinner was very overlooked. This felt like an average banquet with disorganized staff. Wouldn't go back.

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

I thought this place was a tourist trap and never thought about going. Then we thought, lets see why all the cars were always there. Wow, great view of the track. The food was good, a little pricey, but better than expected. I imagine this place is awesome when the horses are running.
