We offer informal dining upstairs and on the outside decks as well as tablecloth/quiet dining downstairs. Come and enjoy our great city and harbor views. Walking distance from the San Diego Convention Center, we are an ideal spot for banquets and private events.

“Wonderful location for fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

We were lucky to drop in on a quiet night and had a window table on the upper floor to view sunset. The waterside setting was neat! The server was excellent, allowing us to pace our dinner to our liking. The seafood was really good, starting with a house clam chowder, creamy and rich with plenty of content. Fish entrees were excellent and varied and even the steak was good! Desert tray was brought from which we selected brownie with ice cream - delicious and big enough to share. Highly recommended when in San Diego!

“Good food with easy access from convention center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Went there twice. Like evry place near the convention center, the $ runs a bit high but the convenience is great. Food was G-VG.

“Overpriced!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

Way overpriced, horrible service and only thing good was view! Fish and chips for $20 should be great but was just mediocre. Took for ever to get salty Caesar salad. Cream Brûlée was chewy and you could tell it had been fixed hours before. Then to top it off, asked for my ticket to be validated and was told it was already validated, and had to pay $7 for parking. This place is a tourist trap because of its location.

“Great Place for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We visited on a Sunday afternoon. They offered the lunch menu on Sunday which does not happen many places. I had the salmon burger, my wife had a talapia sandwich and my daughter had fish tacos. The view is fantastic of the bay and people flying kites in the park was entertaining.

“Great view and atmosphere and large portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We went there after listening to the great music in Seaport Village, and it was Happy Hour. The drinks and appetizers were HUGE! We couldn't believe how much we got to eat for next to nothing. Everything was tasty and fun. The server was pleasant. I would definitely go back, especially for happy hour.
