spectacular ocean view, you'll experience breathtaking sunsets and during the right season even catch a glimpse of the whales migrating up or down the coast. The bar offers a large circular firepit, which is nice on those chilly fall or winter nights. Off to the side of the bar is a split level dining room offering every table a panoramic view of the beach and the ocean. For over 33 years, Poseidon has delighted both local San Diegans and the tourists that love the beach. An excellent menu, a favorite with all the locals is designed to cater to all appetites and pocketbooks.

Beautiful setting and great service eventhough it was restaurant week. Our waiter recommended the Chilean sea bass which was excellent. Boy was that EXPENSIVE! But delicious!

On the beach in Del Mar, great outdoor patio and indoor with slide doors open. We each had the clam chowder with large pieces of clam shared the pistachio crusted brie with jalapeño jelly and freshly made crackers

Great views and decent food. Calamari was excellent. Crab cakes also very good, but lacked a bit of seasoning. Fish tacos were very fresh and delicious. Fish and chips lacked seasoning.

Conducted a lot of business deals at this waterfront restaurant. I love doing brunch on the patio on the sand. Get the Mahi Mahi.

Yummy breakfast with an amazing Beach view. Special place for a Saturday morning breakfast. I have been meeting several previous co-workers to keep in touch for several years. Great meeting spot in the Spring and Summer for seating on the patio located right on the Beach. Servers are very nice.

The best part about Poseidon is the view from the patio that practically sits on the beach but the food is a very close second. There's a nice selection of seafood and other dishes. My personal favorite is the Faroe Islands Scottish Salmon, which is served with a pistachio crust.

Try to get a reservation on the patio around sunset and you won't be disappointed. Enjoying delicious food while watching the sun sink into the water will make your evening extra special and memorable. This is definitely a must-see for coastal luxury.

Next door to Jake's and just as nice! Food always fresh and delicious. The ocean front patio and bar can't be beat. One of the few ocean front restaurants in Southern California...excellent!

Went there for a nice lunch on the beach and that's exactly what we got. Delicious bloody Mary's and ceviche. it was a bit chilly on the patio but with the heat lamp right next to us it was perfect. Can't really complain considering I live here and not on the easy coast!

Great restaurant, good size bar with a good happy hour, horseshoe bar with TV's, right on the beach and walking distance from the house, it is at 17th street.

Poseidon is a great place to eat and/or drink. There is a fun and popular bar on one side of the restaurant and food on the other. Both over-look and spill right out onto the beach. Happy Hours are particularly popular with locals and visitors alike here and the drinking can stretch into the night. I don't think the food is the best to be found in the area, but the combo of food, views, and price can't really be beat. It's definitely one of the top stops to eat in the area.

This place is next door to Jake's (see separate review) and is also right on the beach. The seating is tiered so that no matter where you are seated, there is bound to be a phenomenal view. The food was delicious at lunchtime (dinner is on my wish list) - fish being locally sourced and the atmosphere worth coming back. Highly recommended.

The best spot in Del Mar to enjoy half-off happy hour specials and a gorgeous view of the sunset. The outdoor back seating area is ideal for oceanside dining. Definitely a romantic spot, but also great for large groups!
