Poseidon has been around for a long time, and can have a rollicking bar scene. The food is good rather than great, and the service can often be less than stellar. However, the location alone merits 4 stars, as there are few places where you can watch the surfers, swimmer, joggers and sometimes whales and dolphins while sipping your wine... More

On a recent trip to made the mandatory stop at the Poseidon. The food was great, as usual. The service was outstanding, as usual. Our server even found one of our group a pair of reading glasses so the we might better peruse the menu. And the view...from the Patio is one of a kind. I had the clam chowder.... More

The deck overlooking the beach and the ocean is an amazing place - on a warm and sunny day in February. I had a salmon sandwich. Nice piece of fish. Very juicy. The sauce made it a bit messy to eat. My wife had the Ahi tuna Appetizer and she liked it. Our friends had a Chicken Thai salad and... More

Was in San Diego for a few days for work - the first 2 were unexpectedly rainy....and the clouds broke literally as I walked into Poseidon for some drinks with work colleagues. The bar feels like you are sitting on sea level and it was a gorgeous sun set. bartender and waitress were friendly as was everyone there. Worth the... More

We have frequented Poseidon's for years either hosting customers or employees and often just us as a date night. It's obviously hard to beat the view. Which is exactly why my 93 year old mom wanted to go there after putting her 16 year old dog to sleep. All she wanted was a drink, something light to eat and enjoy... More

We liked the experience so much, we went twice during our short visit to the Dal Mar area. Located right on the water, you can't find a better view of the sunset over the ocean. Breathtaking! They have a great bar area outside and in, and with a fireplace, Appetizers and drinks were great--get there before 6:30 for Happy Hour.... More
