Lively sports bar meets surfer spot just off Oceanside pier. Decent linelup of maybe 20 guest taps and maybe 10 of their own. Bartender seemed annoyed to take my order. Pizza solid.

I was very happy to find this oasis in the middle of town in Oceanside. Nice line up for beers and they are very tasty. they got a full service kitchen for your food needs. Very sports bar- esqe.

Comments: Breakwater despite being outdated and with inconsistent beer that is anywhere from very good to very bad, they have a lot of house beers on tap including special cask only one-offs. With 6 for $6 tasting flights, it is super cheap and a no-brainer if you are going here to get your tick on. But if you are wanting to pound a lot of good beer, you should probably go to Local Tap House down Pacific Hwy or soon, Bagby Beer Co. Staff are pretty slow and carefree, which can be infuriating.

Upscale pizza port with better service. Donít get me wrong just port is always so busy. Really comfortable for pizza joint...perfect size portions and great beer selection....all different and obscure brews..not just the stuff you get at Bev Mo

I kinda like this place for reasons I canít explain. The ambiance is terrible. The beer selection is decent. The house beers are OK with few new ones to try. But the pizza is really good.

Visited twice, once several years ago on the way to Carlsbad for Strong Ale and once more recently with womencantsail.

Several friends had been there earlier the same day the first time I went and told us to try the "kriek". I guess they werenít advertising it so you had to ask for it. After trying our flight of 8 house beers I spotted the brewer (whom I recognized from several beer events) and asked him about it. He was more than happy to bring it out. Nice people and not a bad atmosphere here. Unfortunately the beers are all kind of meh. Similar situation a couple years later but at that time it was late in the evening and the place was packed with bros and college kids. Not automatically a bad thing but yeah, if Iím dealing with that type of crowd Iíd like to at least have good beer. I havent eaten here. Prices are reasonable.

Quite standard interior, a bit loud music, but in general a nice place. Not all the beers very interesting, one of them quite butterscotchy, but probably the friendliest service weíve had so far on this trip. The (cute) barmaid even did a few free mead shots with us. Didnít get to try the food as we were still full after our visit at Beachwood BBQ Long Beach, but it seemed quite decent.

Good stop in the area. Only had the Double IPA, so I canít give too much info on the beers. The sandwiches and slices of pizza were great. The DIPA was too. Great bartender. Iíll be back if Iím up there again.

Good choice of quality beers. Locals friendly as are the staff. We had lunch and sampled several and appreciated the tip from staff that the double IPA was getting close to finishing and if we wanted it to order it sooner rather than later! Also one of the best pizzas I can remember.

Lots of beers on tap including about 12 house beers. Decent sized interior with some patio seating out front. Service was decent. Kind of a more typical bar feel than other brewpubs. The beers on the whole were disappointing. Just a few miles up PCH from Pizza Port Carlsbad, so it could be worth a stop if youíre in the area and not too hammered to drive.
