About Us

A Rich Tradition on San Diego’s Waterfront

This family-owned California-style restaurant has been offering up special, waterfront dining since shortly after Seaport Village opened.

Our two founders D.E. "Butch" Bucciarelli and Louis A. "Luigi" Rezzonico, Jr. started on their hospitality journey in 1978... Edgewater Grill evolved out of a vision to serve our city's visitors and our community.

Luigi and Butch both served our country in the military, and so we have made a concerted effort to support the military over these many years. It is our honor to support our active military by providing a 10% discount* off every bill, every day (*for service person only; not entire group). Thank you for your service.

We have incredible spaces for special events, and we are serving BRUNCH each and every day from 8am - 2pm! We look forward to seeing you here soon.

Perfect Views for San Diego Bay Events

We are blessed to have the opportunity to watch the boats and beautiful people cruise by our restaurant 365 days per year! And even better is having a killer view for the San Diego Parade of Lights, which happens each and every year. POL is always held the second and third Sunday nights in December. All the boats decorate according to the theme and, of course, Seaport Village is on the route!

Fourth of July fireworks, fireworks off the Midway Museum, and more can also be seen from most tables in the restaurant. We hope to see you down here soon.
