Brigantine Seafood Restaurant
Opened in 1969, Brigantine Seafood Restaurant has gained a reputation for serving great sefood. Enjoy your cocktails and meal on the heated outdoor deck, which offers a panoramic view of the Shelter Island boatyards. There are five other Brigantine Seafood restaurants spread over the San Diego County. All locations offer fabulous fresh fish and have rocking oyster bars. The Del Mar Brigantine is a favorite singles spot, and Coronado's Oyster Bar is hotspot in the evenings. This chain of restaurants is slightly expensive but worth a visit. Other restaurants are situated at La Mesa, Escondido and Poway. Coronado: 1333 Orange Avenue. +1 619 435 4166. Del Mar: 3263 Camino Del Mar. +1 858 481 1166.

When we entered there was no hostess and we just stood there. Finally someone showed us to a table in the back and then no server. By this time it had been 20 minutes. I was tapping my fingers and looking at my watch when someone came over and said our server would be here soon. The food is mediocre at best. With dinner and a nice bottle of wine (which needed a cooler and we had to ask for that as well) our dinner was over $100.00.
Will we be back NO....this place is over rated and WAY TO EXPENSIVE for the quality of food you get. RUN don't walk to another restaurant. OH - 2 other tables left around us because they also did not have a server!! You be the judge!!!
I just finished dinner with my family at the Piont Loma Brig. I started going to that location in the early 70's when it was the Ancient Mariner owned by Harold Celeste. In recent years we would go once a month for a regular treat of your seafood. However, about a year or two ago we found ourselves seldom recognized and getting food that was generally not well prepared. Overdone or poor quality seafood was the norm rather than the exception. Your waiters properly refunded or discounted meals. However, we were more interested in good fish, so we stopped coming and only visited when it was a last resort. Weekends at the Brig were always easy because you didn't need a reservation. Tonight we ventured back and ordered salmon dishes,for the first time. (Usually we have swordfish and halibut) The menu said the fish was fresh Canadian salmon. It did not say if it was farm raised. It was our mistake not to ask. Once it was served there was no doubt it was farm raised. I asked the waitress and she confirmed its origin. I told her it was mushy and not acceptable. If the menu had been forthright,I would not have ordered it. She offered to take it off the charge and sent the chef out to talk to us. He told me the salmon was fresh today. I asked him if fresh wild salmon or farm raised salmon was better to eat. He told me three times that company policy was that farm raised was the same. He dutifully discounted himself as a real chef and stuck to the party line.
