Good food. Way overpriced. Nice walk on the pier. Clean restaurant. Just too expensive to eat there again.

I just didn't enjoy the long walk and wait for an average burger. The views at the en of Oceanside Pier are spectacular.

Walking to the end of the Oceanside pier helped create an appetite . Had a great lunch and the walk back to parking helped burn off a few calories. Great place to people watch with views of Pacific Ocean
