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.
