The location is at the end of the point on Harbor Island. Along one side is a walkway and park that runs along the edge of the harbor where all the boats sail. On the other side is the marina view. Wonderful restaurant near the Hilton. Perfect location, near the airport. Parking is easy.

We booked Tom Ham's for a business group. The staff was wonderful to work with. We had a private room for a group of 32. Only complaint was the ceilings in room are a bit low making the room quite loud when everyone was talking at the same time. Other than that, it was superb and the food was reasonably... More

The food was typical seafood and probably a bit overpriced; but, the portions were large and fantastic view of the harbor. Party of 6 had lunch on the open deck. Perfect weather, great company. Had fish and chips (three large portions of fish). It was busy and was seated right away, mid-week. I'd go back for happy hour....

Celebrated birthdays with friends. Reserved a table by the window. Had a great view! Our server Candice was fantastic and the food was awesome. Lots of seafood selections. There was a couple getting wedding pictures taken outside. They also have outdoor seating and you can make private room reservations... there was someone celebrating their 16th birthday and another person celebrating... More

My boss and I ate here while on business. We couldn't decide between the paella and the boulliabaise so we got both and split them. The flavors were awesome and the bread was also very good--warm and with creamery butter. I recommend sitting outside to enjoy the view of the San Diego skyline!

We walk to the restaurant from our hotel (Harbor Island Hilton)... the food is great, service is always prompt and the views are exceptional.... Ask for a patio table and watch the boats and city skyline.

Food was delicious. I had the sirloin and it was cooked to perfection - tender and juicy. Atmosphere was great. Views were amazing. A sailboat race was going on while we ate, and we watched the freight ships roll in and the military helicopters buzz by overhead. Lots of fun. We ate inside because we were in a large group,...

We caught a glimpse of Tom Ham's Lighthouse while driving around the area and thought, “that must have a great view of the bay and back toward San Diego waterfront.” We reserved for Saturday evening and when we were sat down at an outside table on the patio we were proved right; the view is spectacular and the waterside environment...
