Booking a table for 12 golfers was easy and complete. If you have a special occasion, they will place you in a section away from usual noise and banter. The twin Maine Lobster tails are a winner as well as the New England clam chowder.

To celebrate a work retirement we chose this restaurant because it was more upscale than other places we would normally go to for lunch. We were surprised that it was already busy at 11:45 a.m., as it seemed to be favored by business people. Seafood is the primary entree offered here and each of us in our party of four... More

We went for happy hour last week, and it was very nice. The prices were right, and the selection was good. It looks like they just remodeled it also, very nice. Kelsey was our server, and she took good care of us

We love the Brigantine whether it is for lunch, brunch, happy hour or dinner! Wonderful food and great service. They have outdoor dining too which is very nice. Their Fish Tacos in the Bar are great and not something to miss. Anything Fish Entree is at it's best!

It's been a while since we've eaten at the Brigantine, and our experience there was truly excellent in every way. The service was fantastic, from the entire supporting staff. Each employee there seems motivated to connect with the customers with a positive encounter. The food was fresh, delicious, excellent quality and really reasonably priced. We had the macadamia nut crusted... More

The Brigantine has been in San Diego for as long as I can remember. Their menu is large so there is always something for everyone - pub food, seafood, salads... they have it all. The prices are reasonable and the service is good. Ask for their cheesy garlic bread - to die for (lots of calories though)

This is our go to restaurant in East County. It has a varied menu, the service is always friendly, and the patios are usually (depending on the weather) a wonderful outdoor eating experience.

The food there is ok not great but not bad. Food portions are small I feel. The seafood is just ok. That is my opinion others seems to like it.
