Specialty Cocktails at Lionfish

When you’re serving up some of the best coastal cuisine and Sushi in San Diego, it’s easy to forget to mention your equally excellent craft cocktail program. Well here’s the thing. We remembered! Great seafood, and great cocktails go together like an oyster in a shell. So it’s only natural our drink menu boasts some of the most inventive cocktails you’ve seen, and if you’re a little less adventurous, we’ve still got plenty of options for you to consider.


Let’s start with the house cocktails

Seasonal Cocktails 

If all of the above aren’t doing it for you, then take a look into our seasonal cocktails. And remember! They’re seasonal, so if you’ve exhausted all of your fall options, you don’t have to wait too long until our autumn options start showing themselves on the menu! All you have to do is be patient.

Cocktails not your thing? 

We get it. Sometimes you just want a beer. There’s nothing quite like a west coast IPA to compliment our Big-Eye Tuna Pizza with truffle mustard, red onions, and micro shiso. And let’s not forget about our wide selection of champagnes, white & red wines, Junmai (sake), chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, port & dessert wine, rum, scotch, Japanese whiskey, bourbon & whiskey, cognac, tequila, and mezcal.


We know that sounds like a mouthful, and that’s because it is. If there isn’t a readymade cocktail on the menu that’s just right for you, we have everything under the sun to whip up the libation of your dreams. Heck, maybe there’s something out there that you don’t even know is you new favorite yet.
