nice seafood for b'day dinner?

planning a trip to SD next weekend. We'll be spending Friday at Seaworld. My parents will be with us (in their 70's). It's mom's b'day and I wanted to find a nice spot not too far from Seaworld for dinner, as they'll probably be kind of tired after the day. Preferably seafood, but just nice overall for a birthday. She'd really enjoy a nice setting--water view, etc.

btw--posters here are awesome--this is my go-to site whenever we travel : )

  1. I would head up to La Jolla (10-15 minutes north from Seaworld) and have drinks and app's at the Marine Room and then dinner at sunset at George's at the can do the more casual ocean terrace or the fine dining restaurant.
    Afterwards, you can walk around the LJ Cove/village and maybe a nightcap at La Valencia Hotel and listen to the lovely piano music in the La Sala room.
    Have a great time!

      If they are going to be tired, why run them around? I think that either George's or The Marine Room would be sufficient single stops, don't you? :)

        I thought you were going to write that its actually 16 minutes from Seaworld to LJ..
        I wanted to cover all bases in case the sea air gives them that extra spring in their step.
        ; )

    2. Try the Fishery in pacific beach, not to far from sea world.
