Best San Diego Embarcadero Restaurants

The San Diego Embarcadero sets on the San Diego Bay. The Embarcadero and its boardwalk is generally considered that area from the Maritime Museum south to Seaport Village and Embarcadero Marina Parks. If you get hungry, there are plenty of places to eat, but the following are considered the best restaurants either directly on the Embarcadero or on Harbor Drive which essentially parallels the bay's waterfront. Also see Restaurants in the Gaslamp District which is near the Embarcadero.
