Best Waterfront Dining in San Diego

You could probably make the argument that there aren’t any bad views in San Diego一and you’d probably be right too. That being said, there’s still a handful of seaside restaurants, bars and grills that specialize in everything from fresh seafood favorites to classic baja California cuisine. Regardless of what kind of food you’re in the mood for, you can find it一along with equally fabulous views一in this beloved SoCal city. Here are some of San Diego’s best waterfront dining options.

The Front Yard

Restaurant of the Week: The Front Yard

A meal on the patio at the aptly-named The Front Yard feels less like dining at a restaurant and more like gathering at the home of your friend who has the best patio (and happens to be the best chef, too). The dining destination at The Garland hotel in North Hollywood dishes up an elevated spin on traditional dishes and a creative cocktail menu, to boot.

Restaurant of the Week: Sally’s Fish House & Bar

Restaurant of the Week: LB Steak

The second location of LB Steak, a luxurious modern American steakhouse concept specializing in fresh, in-house butchered steak, now resides on the inside of City Center at Bishop Ranch. Led by a James Beard-nominated French chef, the restaurant just opened its doors in San Ramon.
