Pizza - made with their house beer dough- is scrumptious! We went with the pesto and artichoke! The beer is also great! Did a flight and could have easily stayed for a second. Their craft brewing with honey and other local ingredients makes the beer crisp and fresh tasting. The Perfect Day is a near perfect beer:) Bar tender was... More

Stopped in for a pint and was pleasantly surprised. Great wings, pizza. Knowledgeable and helpful staff on there own beers. Try a sampler of them. So if you're in Oceanside stop in you won't be disappointed. Two thumbs up and I will definitely be coming back. Keep the great work guy's.

I tried to order a gift card today - over the phone, online, by (check or credit via) snail mail... I was cited "policy" as the reason... only after the manager in training and duty manager continued to look for a "shipping" option on the register. I asked to speak to an owner or investor - and the manager said... More

Stopped in for a Meal and a few Pints and was not disappointed. The vibe was typical So Cal Beach and the service was fast and friendly. We ordered a small Pizza, Wings, and a Salad. The Salad was unreal and full of the freshest greens I have ever seen from a restaurant kitchen. The Pizza was fresh and well... More

I was impressed with the two locals sampling their homegrown habaneros and ghost peppers. We talked peppers while I was being poured a beer. The Dodgers game was loud until Cubs stifled the bar late in the game. Met some friends, tried several local beers with helpful tips from the friendly neighbourhood staff. It's the kind of place I would... More

The bar is decent size, has a relatively laid back atmosphere, with bar tenders that are equally chill. They offer a small selection of food and a good selection of locally made beers. The Breakwater beers that were pretty good and they had a few that were unique. It was s cool place to hang out after a long day... More

This is a local brewery which also happens to serve some really good food with large portions. The beers are decent with a few really good ones. The food choices tend to lean towards sandwiches, salads, and wings. Overall, was surprised to the food quality.

My husband, daughter, and I stopped in for a quick bite to each on a hot day. It's a walk-up counter where you order, pay, and get a number. You take a seat and someone brings your food out when it's ready. We waited about 15 minutes for our food - they bring it as it becomes available. The wings... More

Two pool tables and a long bar. They have a band on Saturday night and cheap beer with a military I D. Problem is it smells bad in here. It will attract men who want cheap beer ($3.00) and a tv for football but for women, no thanks.
