My guest and I sat outside on a balcony overlooking the sea lions and La Jolla Cove which was delightful. The food was excellent (try the crab cakes) and service perfect. Looking forward to talking my wife for a romantic outing.

Oceanside
About the restaurant
We opened our doors in August 2014 with a vision of greatness: great drinks, food, and atmosphere, with a chill, unassuming vibe. A come-as-you-are locale, where everyone — from local to the traveler — is welcomed. Insider or outsider, there’s a seat at the bar just for you.

Located just blocks from the Oceanside Pier, join us in our industrial-chic lounge with two large garage doors which make you feel like you're dining outside, or on our heated and dog-friendly patio, from lunch to late night. Be sure to check our daily happy hours, midweek lunch specials and weekend brunch. Come see us. Pull up a seat and make yourself at home.

We came with a party of 12 on a Sunday afternoon/evening. Our server was fantastic. Everyone in the family, from the vegetarian child to the (very NOT vegetarian) and the "I am not too hungry - just an appetizer for me" adult, everyone was happy with the menu options. And the food was great, as is the location. We were inside, but near the open wall so essentially on a covered patio. It was a beautiful Oceanside day, and walking distance to the beach, pier, etc.

When we arrived for the Glow Party that was supposed to start at 9:30pm. We were told it was changed to 11:00pm. They were late putting out the party glow favors. They need wait staff, we had to ask to get any service, I did have a table reservation but it didn’t matter, they never asked. We had to print out our tickets from Vettix but no one asked for it to scan it. It was very unorganized and the felmale DJ/Photographer barely spoke english and she didn’t do a good job. Need a better DJ for the future she wasn’t prepared.
