We Call it Flip-Flop Fine

DINING

High-quality food & drink, unpretentious atmosphere.

What are You Craving?

Because whatever it is, it’s here. The O’side vibe—that invitation to be an o’riginal, to take risks and pursue your passion—has drawn top culinary talent to Oceanside’s restaurants. The come-as-you-are dining scene has everything from craft beer and coal-fired pizza to locally sourced farm fare and award-winning sustainable seafood. Not to mention a wide range of superb sips.

Get Your Belly Full Of O’side

At the Table

You can taste your way through O’side. Each neighborhood boasts its own distinct culinary vibe, from locally beloved to next wave to new school.

Behind the Bar

We know our way around a handmade beverage, be it caffeinated, high-octane, craft brewed, or literally buzzing (mead, anyone?).

Locally Brewed

On the western edge of San Diego’s famed “Hops Highway,” Oceanside is craft beer nirvana with nine brewers and more on the horizon. Visit a taproom to taste the local brew scene, with rotating regional beers and tap-takeover events.

Locally Grown

The tight-knit O’side culinary community supports its own, with produce from local farms driving menus all over town. Taste the bounty and meet our farm folk at the Oceanside Farmer’s Market, held Downtown every Thursday morning, 9am-1pm.

Love O'Side, Sustainability

When you love something, it loves you back. Making thoughtful travel choices helps keep Oceanside green, clean, and sustainable. Show O’side some love by taking only memories and leaving only footprints – always packing out what you pack in, respecting local wildlife, and creating less waste with things like reusable water bottles and tote bags.
