Description: A San Diego tradition since 1969, the Brigantine has received many accolades in our 40+ year history: "BEST SEAFOOD", "BEST CASUAL SEAFOOD", "BEST HAPPY HOUR", and even "BEST SWORDFISH IN THE WORLD", according to USA Today - just to name a few. Beautifully remodeled in early 2009, the Brigantine is well-known for the signature Clam Chowder, Grilled Swordfish, and Creme Brulee. The Brigantine is a favorite among locals for consistently fresh seafood, succulent steaks and grilled meats. Home to the America's Cup until 1995, Shelter Island is still the yachting center of San Diego. The Brigantine offers glimpses of this busy marina from the outdoor patio and semi-private banquet areas. The Point Loma Brigantine serves dinner 7 nights a week, and lunch Monday-Saturday. Join us for our signature Happy Hour.

We were staying at teh Best Western Plus Island Palms on Shelter Island and asked at the desk for a good seafood place to eat locally. The clerk recommmended The Brigantine, which happened to be right on Shelter Island Dr., less than a mile away.
The Best Western even had a card for a free appetizer that they gave us.
The restaurant is on the second floor and easy to find. There is, of course an elevator. we received a nice greeting upon entering and were shown to a booth right away but we were fairly early for dinner. Service was very good throughout the entire meal. The food was very good also. We asked for and received information concerning some of the dishes to assist us in our entree.
I rated this restuarant as four stars because it is a very good place to eat but is not an "Iron Chef" quality place.
I had a draft beer ,my wife two glasses of wine with the meal, the free appetizer, we each had a full meal plus a dessert and the meal came to $74.00. Their Creme Brulee is excellent by the way.

Went on a Saturday night & it was packed,waited 15 mins for a table,no problem.Even though its advertised as a seafood restaraunt I wanted steak,& I had the nicest NY strip ever,so tasty. Hubby had huge prawns stuffed with crab etc,very well priced,had 2 lovely glasses of Californian Zinfandel @$6 a glass,service was perfect. If I lived in San Diego I would go every week!!
