This is an awesome restaurant. Sit outside and have a view of the fairgrounds, enjoy well prepared seafood, drinks.... Don't forget to ask for their cheesy garlic bread - it's not on the menu but they will prepare it for you... YUM!

The Brig Bar is the best remodeled restaurant in San Diego County in the past 5 years. The looked in the mirror and decided when they grew up they were going to be a bar with fine dining not a dining room with a bar. The Bar Kitchen is all you need for a great night out with friends, family... More

Extraordinarily noisy. Food and service average. Would not go out of my way visit. Bar was empty, but we were crammed in dining room.

Wonderful event, Great location with an outstanding view of the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds. The service was very attentive and the food was nice for a buffet style event.

The food here was quite good--better than we expected when we arrived, given the high noise level near the bar and the rather casual atmosphere. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Dessert was great also. The only problem was with the valet, who managed to drop and lose one of the two keys to our rental car, which we... More

Brig is consistently good food. Reasonably priced and a great hang out. Sunday has bottomless mimosas during the brunch timeframe with an entree order. Needless to say we typically go on Sunday. If you are looking for a great meal in Del Mar and don't want to spend an arm and leg for it, Brig is a great option and... More

The Del Mar Brigantine has a fantastic Happy Hour with a great selection of appetizers and beverages that are affordably priced. There is a nice indoor bar area, but what my wife and I like best is sitting along their outdoor deck with a nice view of the Del Mar Racetrack and the Pacific Ocean. The only drawback to some...

Great tacos - and Gluten Free as they did a lettuce wrap for me. So tasty that it was still worth it. They did miss one taco and not wrap in lettuce and they sauces were not GF and ended up under the lettuce so I couldn't eat that one. But other than that was great.
