promised a year ago not to return. Should have kept my promise Reviews are very subjective: who are you there with, mood, even weather. One thing is not. Poor management/ownership This is a touristy place, charges like it and has to thank the wondrous view...More

The sign fooled us into trying this restaurant. There is no great happy hour deal, they don't even have a full bar. The taco were good, but someone should explain to them that you shouldn't put a kids plate in a 500 degree oven and...More

We went during happy hour and had a fabulous meal! Fish tacos, oyster shooters and oysters in the half shell for starters. Mixed seafood fettuccine Alfredo, Fisherman's Fry platter (Oysters, Clams, Shrimp, Fish of the day & Calamari), blackened halibut and New York strip steak....More

Food was average. No full bar (but fair selection of beer and wine). Nice views of the harbor if you can get a seat on the patio. LOTS of families with children - not exactly a romantic dining spot, at least in the summer.

We decided to eat here given the location and the view after our dolphin and whale watching cruise. The meals was OK but nothing spectacular. It was a bit bland and nothing that overwhelmed us. I'd stop for drinks and apps only next time. Nice...More

So, it's all about the tourists, but NOT horrible Very good server enhanced the experience, and the food was complimented by the outside patio-on -the -harbor deal. NOT FAST FOOD, as I suspect the kitchen cannot accommodate the masses. Oysters were good, fish and chips...More

Wow! Watching the sunset from the outside deck is unbelievable! The food is also delicious and definitely worth the money!

Quiet harbor view with light cool evening breeze is the best way to enjoy a good meal in Oceanside. A little pricey but you pay for the atmosphere, as well!

We were referred here by a nice young woman from our hotel. She stated that it was her local favorite. While we may have been suspect initially, we went back 3 times! All or meals were good. Tough to taste any lobster in the lobster...More

Wanted to love it but my wife and our kid's food was way overcooked and chewy. They did well on the kids noodles and Alfredo and my sea bass but when half the food is bad the whole experience is. :(

I only eat lunch there. Traffic driving up from Carmel Valley is too great to mess with during the week. I don't know about a happy hr but I am sure a quick call will answer the question. Great place regardless.
