Lobster Bisque and Seafood

noshie Aug 4, 2013 08:11 PM

I am looking for a good bowl of lobster bisque and a good seafood restaurant, they don't necessarily need to be one and the same. I will be vacationing on Mission Bay, but I am happy to drive to other neighborhoods. Thanks in advance.

    I haven't tried enough places with lobster bisque in SD to give you a definitive answer but I did enjoy the version Currant served up.

        She seems to be AWOL or MIA

          Likely on an exquisite vacation someplace exotic and tropical.

        Island Prime and C Level had good lobster bisque. Don't know if they still have it...it's been awhile for me. I personally prefer the Mussel Bisque at Dobson's downtown.

          Agree that Dobson's is a winner in the bisque department. But it's not lobster.

          Well, Beach Chick would send you to Dobson's for their bisque. I recently had the Lobster Bisque at The Grove Steakhouse at the Viejas Casino and it was delicious.

            I believe BC recommends Mussel Bisque at Dobson's. BTW - were the heck is BC of late, probably frolicing around Europe! And don't forget to take the H2O taxi over to Coronado!

              But only take the Water Taxi if Sergio is driving!

                I don't Sergio transcends beyond the LA board.

                  Didn't know the H2O taxi went that far, like a Gilligan's Island tour?

            I love the lobster bisque at Red Tracton's, and highly recommend it.
