Charli’s Landing To Replace Royal Rooster In San Diego's Mission Beach

January 10, 2024

Moving into the space that last housed Royal Rooster at Seaforth Marina at Quivira Basin in San Diego's Mission Beach is Charli's Landing, a waterfront eatery celebrating maritime history from a native San Diego restaurateur.

Brant Crenshaw was born and raised in San Diego, spending most of his life living along Mission Bay. As a kid, he would taxi over to nearby Seaforth Marina to take half-day fishing trips, frequently grabbing a bite at what was The Landing Grille at Quivira Basin. Fast forward to present day and Crenshaw is now a successful San Diego restaurateur who operates Social Tap American Eatery adjacent to Petco Park and Hive Sushi Lounge in East Village. Joining him in this endeavor is operating partner, Ryan Tuller.  Ryan has spent his days not only in the restaurant industry, but also as Captain of several yachts between Newport and Panama. They recently signed a lease to take over the former Landing Grille space, which most recently housed Royal Rooster.
Dubbed Charli’s Landing, named after Crenshaw's young daughter, the incoming restaurant will pay homage to the local fishing community with walls decked out with historic photos. As far as food, expect an all day menu featuring grab-and-go breakfast items to feed the local fishing community in early morning hours, as well as inspired morning-focused dishes like breakfast fried rice and late-day options ranging from tacos and burritos to smash burgers and seafood sandwiches. The fast-casual eatery will have a walk-up ordering system with beer and mimosas available, and diners will be able to enjoy their meals overlooking the marina on the outdoor deck and within the adjacent park.

Charli's Landing is expected to soft open in the coming months at 1717 Quivira Road in San Diego's Mission Beach area. For more information, follow Charli's Landing on Instagram
