“Great Service Not So Great Food”

Beachside Bar and Grill
Ranked #114 of 303 Restaurants in Encinitas
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 June 2013

First of all, they advertise 22oz and 16 oz beer "specials" that are served in 16oz and 12 oz glasses, respectively. The wait staff is on top of it. I've been several times and they do their absolute best to ensure you have a pleasant experience. I suppose it would help if I kept in mind that it's more of a sports bar than a "bar and grill." Fantastic for watching sports if you're not going to eat or drink. Overpriced morning adult beverages (mimosas and bloodys). Portobello mushroom burger stuffed with blue cheese is a decent choice if you're going to order food. Otherwise, if you've got money to burn on falsely advertised beer specials and you like a great responsive wait staff, then you might be right at home.

Good place for a late night bar meal. Food was good but nothing unique. Busy and noisy but it's a beach bar. Service was good.

negative: Cant belive this but the mens restroom wasnt clean at all, its like they hadnt cleaned the restroom all day, paper overflowing from bin onto ground..not nice and only reason i dont give 5 stars

Found a hair in my buffalo chicken wing. Server apologized and offered to remove it from the bill. Food was decent, nothing spectacular

Was looking for an average meal and this looked local. Atmosphere was pretty noisy but it is a bar and grill. Server was busy and took a long time to get drinks. Food was about a b minus and then couldn't eat the rest of the panini when I found a piece of hair embedded in the cheese that obviously wasnt mind. Server apologized but did not attempt to do anything about it. Won't be going back if we visit again.
