Tom Ham’s Lighthouse was built in 1971 by a man who was not afraid to put his name on his product. Rooted in warm welcomes & excellent food, Tom Ham made his lifelong dream a reality. Tom Ham’s Lighthouse is the only restaurant in the US to have a USCG operated & maintained Lighthouse attached to it. You can locate us on any modern nautical map as Beacon #9. Featuring a 100% responsibly resourced seafood menu & award winning Sunday Champagne Brunch, we are a must when it comes to the San Diego food scene. The dining room, purposely shaped like the state of California, allows for groups as grand as 50 yet private enough for a couple’s night out. Holiday brunches have been long time family traditions for many San Diegans. Start your family’s tradition this next holiday. With the best views of the Downtown City Skyline, Coronado & San Diego Bay, Tom Ham's is & remains a San Diego tradition in dining excellence since 1971.

    Great view of harbor from the upper deck. Good food. The corn asparagus salad with salmon added-on was delicious, as was the cookie dough ice cream. Our first server was outstanding. After a shift change, our second server was rather inattentive, and they were not busy at all. Nonetheless, we will return.

    We had lobsters and they were excellent, the wait staff was very good and attentive. Good drinks and dessert. Yes it was a little expensive but I think it was good value for the money.

    There was hair in our food and we sent it back. The fish was not cooked property, and it was dry. Our grilled vegetables were all burned and not edible.

    We had a lovely tasty lunch in a very beautiful setting on the balcony outside at Tom Hams. Service and food were both excellent. My husband celebrated his birthday with a complimentary dessert. Wonderful view of all the boats and surrounding city.

    What can I say? The view is spectacular! We ate inside due to having an elderly guest with us, but they put us right at up against a window. Ricardo was amazing! He was funny, on time with all parts of the meal, attentive and he made for a great experience for our first time to Tom Hams Lighthouse. We will certainly be back when another special occasion arises. We had lobster bisque, caesar salad, corn/asparagus salad, clam linguini, diver scallops (awesome), calamari appetizer, Minter sweet oysters on the half shell, and the best brussel sprouts ever! My husband loved the draft Blood Orange IPA an I very much enjoyed the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc . We were too full for dessert, but maybe next time.
