The Port of San Diego hosts the official ribbon-cutting ceremony for waterfront restaurant venue, which replaced Anthony’s Fish Grotto.
SAN DIEGO—The replacement of Anthony’s Fish Grotto on the Downtown San Diego waterfront is complete, as the Port of San Diego officially christened Portside Pier, a collection of eateries overlooking the bay and harbor.
Port district staff, San Diego city leaders and members of the district’s Board of Port Commissioners hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony, July 20. The new restaurant venue is located at 1360 North Harbor Drive.
Four restaurants make up Portside Pier: Brigantine on the Bay; Miguel’s Cocina; Ketch Grill and Taps; and, Portside Coffee & Gelato. The restaurants specifically offer seafood (Brigantine), Mexican (Miguel’s), pub fare (Ketch) and coffee/gelato (Portside Coffee).
Portside Pier features a dock-and-dine option, accommodating up to four boats. A second level perimeter walkway and viewing deck is available to the public to take in views of San Diego Bay. The viewing deck also has tables and seating for up to 108 people.
Port district staff said Portside Pier will officially open on July 28 and “operate under the latest state and county health guidance for restaurants.”
