I've been coming here every year or so when I visit family for about twenty-five years and whilst everything was OK it struck me that this place is stuck in a time warp. Who could not want to eat here when the views are so wonderful, and the food is OK, but it's not great. The portions are still huge... More

We went to Beachside to watch a football game while on vacation in Encinitas. The service was terrible! Our waitress went off shift and we were told someone else would become our waitress. After waiting 25 minutes nobody came. I went to the bar to get a drink and had a very rude and disturbing interaction with a patron sitting... More

I recently stopped in here to grab a quick bite with my mom before taking her to an appointment. I tried the Lime in a Coconut drink and thought it was delicious. I ordered the ceviche and it was a perfect size for one if you are having it as an entree. If you were going to get it as... More

One of the best places in encinitas to come for their after hours pre drinks. After 10 pm most drinks are only 5$ at besides the don julio 1942. Also besides the drink the Buffalo wings are phenomenal. Shout out to my waiter Shane for looking after us! Did a great job and enjoyed my time in a great environment!

Driving through town I was looking for a bar and grill and stopped here. It was relatively empty and I ordered a burger with a side salad instead of fries. It was SO good. 1/2 pound. Cooked perfectly. The Salad was great. Perhaps I had lower expectation, but this place was GOOD. I'd go back for sure.

Good selection of beer and a really nice location. The service was pretty bad though as we sat at the bar with empty beer glasses for over 10 minutes and it wasn't really busy. Bartender wore a baseball hat pulled over his eyes, so it made it really difficult to make eye contact and get his attention. Menu had a... More

we stopped by here for a quick lunch and sat in the outdoor patio which was very nice. It almost seemed like they were short staffed as they did not seem that busy but service was rather slow but food was quite good. I would give this place another try if in the area

Service is and facilities are good and the value is great - especially for draft beers. 5$ for most 14oz glasses and just a dollar more... More

If you need a place for a beer, this is great. If you need to stop because you want to have a bite to eat, there are probably better places in the neighbourhood. Sorry, the food was barely edible. The wings were sticky but lacked any flavour, the nachos soggy. Still, the place is a lot of fun, and the... More

Stopped here for late lunch. As with most of the restaurants of this type there are some great seats with open air windows so you can enjoy the views and breezes. The food here was great and they have some great specialty cocktails which were very good. Service was excellent and overall a great experience.
