Seafood
The Brigantine is more than just home to some of San Diego’s finest seafood. It’s a place where locals and visitors alike come to share a lively atmosphere and authentic sense of community. The Morton family opened the first Brigantine on Shelter Island in 1969, with a vision that embraced the beach town lifestyle, a dedication to flavorful food, and a passion for friendly service.

Today, we’re known far and wide for our San Diego-style surf and turf. From our award-winning fish tacos and freshly shucked oysters, to classic filet mignon or our perpetually best-selling marinated grilled swordfish. Always prepared to exceed expectations, and served with a smile. You can stop in at any neighborhood Brigantine and get a taste of the local flavor, from regionally inspired specials, to custom cocktails and home town craft beers. At the Brigantine we make first timers feel like regulars, and consider regulars part of the family. So come by often, and share our taste for life.

    Party of 4, food good for other 3, I had surf and turf. Steak very well, no pink at all, lobster undercooked, mushy when cracked open. They replaced the steak, all good. Asked them to take lobster from table. Still had nice time. On way out door. Manager approached and handed my 40 dollars, apologizing for food. 1/2 price of my plate. Very nice and appreciated. First time we were there 2 months back. I Had fillet and couple shrimp on top. It was amazing, hope to get back there and see if this time just a fluke.

    Very nice place and amazing food. We went there with the kids (9 & 10 years old) and everyone was happy. They have a kids menu and great seafood choice. I had the tuna and it was simply beautiful!

    Noisy & poor quality food. We have eaten here many times since it’s a short walk from our home. Waitstaff was very attentive but it felt like a rush to turn the table.

    Food was horrible. Bad timing as well, all entrees came after 10 min of seating when our cocktails had not even been prepared. This place is a tourist trap, it looks good and the building is super nice but not worth it.
