    The Brigantine Seafood Restaurant: A Local Favorite!

    by lmkluque Updated Jun 11, 2013

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Brigantine Seafood Restaurant is very popular with the "locals" but not one of my favorites only because there are no ocean/bay views which I really enjoy and they are open only during meal hours. This is not a place you can stop at anytime during the day/evening.


    It seems that they have reconsidered their hours and are open from 11:30 am to 10:00 pm Monday through Sunday. Nice job!

    I have eaten here often and have to admit that it does have it's good qualities. It is nicely decorated, has several dining room options. A large room, great for larger parties, with tables open to other tables, here there is a view of sorts, along Orange Avenue, so if you like people watching this would be a good place for it. There is a very small outdoor seating section. They also have a more private dining option that I like most. High backed booths that give a sense of seclusion and privacy. They also have a lounge area as well as a full service bar.

    The service is attentive and efficient.

    Favorite Dish: The food served here is basically American, seafood, steaks, pasta and some popular fried foods.

    My favorite dish depends upon my mood. I like most of the seafood items and wine or Prime Rib and a Martini. The food is very good and that's one of the reasons it's such a popular place.

    They also offer Happy Hours and this would be a good way to sample their cuisine if you are on a budget.
