Had a wonderful dinner at what I consider the best resturant in Encinitas. This place is a delightful food driven chef owned establishment I was surprised to find. With all the overpriced bar heavy resturants around the area this place doesn't get enough credit. Our...More

Food isn’t great, but their cheese board is a winner. Interesting artesian cheeses and salamis with great condiments. The cheddar biscuits are a great add-on if you’re ordering a cheese board - they are tasty.

Fantastic restaurant! The oysters on the half shell at $1 a piece are excellent. Shrimp and grits, macaroni and cheese, and the shrimp and pork belly tacos were perfect. The warm spinach salad was not my favorite. Excellent service! A must go!
