We've been going there quite often now that they've remodeled and the view is just fantastic. whether you're sitting inside or out, you have a great view of San Diego Bay with sailboats gliding by. The service is professional and the food delicious. We've tried their ceviche, the wonderful lobster roll, their salads and various other sandwiches, and they're all... More

My brother held his wedding at Tom Ham's Lighthouse; the downstairs is for events and parties, the upstairs is the main dining room/brunch and bar area. The layout of the venue is so good that you can have your ceremony under the arches and then simply step over to the cocktail area and then the dining area. The service was... More

We enjoyed the views during dinner from a window table. Very pleased trying the Padron Peppers, the Duck, and Brick Chicken. Excellent beer menu and friendly service, plus a nice walk from the Sheraton along the bay.

We just happened to literally stumble onto this San Diego landmark restaurant. Located at the end of a cup-de-sac on Harbor Island, it's positioned perfectly for a romantic dinner with a sometimes breathtaking view of the San Diego harbor. Then, there's the food and the service. Both are five star. We had the brick chicken, and it was fabulous. But... More

We took my mother out to Tom Ham's Lighthouse for the Mother's Day brunch and the food and atmosphere were fabulous. They had all the usual breakfast items, plus a carving station as well as other hot-plated meats and fish. They also had a seafood section with crab legs and large crab claws, peel and eat shrimp with hot drawn... More

The venue offered a fabulous view of the city and marina. That was the highlight. The food left much to be desired. However the main room was set up so lovely and offered great views and access to the open patio on the water . Appetizers were better than the main meal. It was a nice choice for a work... More

Tom Ham's is one of our favorite restaurants! We love the ambience, the food and the bartenders. Joe and Stacy are two of our favorite bartenders in San Diego! They are friendly and just fun to be around! The drinks are always good here and the food is fantastic as well. Many times we will just go for happy hour... More
