If you're a fan of pork belly this is your place

We were told by our local friends that we lucked out in getting seated as quickly as we did on the prime-time Friday when we visited. The dining room is moderately crowded and noisy, but we had a great waiter who was willing to engage with our wise-guy friend (which was worth the price of admission... read more

As a North County resident I had heard a lot of good things about the Flying Pig. A pub! In Oceanside! On a side street behind the 101 Diner. WOW. The pub is tres tres hip, and tres tres loud. I MEAN LOUD. No conversation LOUD. But, my smoked pork sandwich was delicious, and so was the flatbread. The mac... More

I was excited to try this restaurant after reading reviews. My husband and I took his daughter who was visiting from out of town. She and I ordered the chicken and dumplings which seemed a little misleading as it had a thigh and leg seared on top of a bed of cooked cauliflower with 4 very small corn meal dumplings... More

Service was friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent. The chicken and dumplings are delicious, but a bit unusual. If you were expecting grandma's chicken and dumplings this is not the dish for you, but if you want a really good dinner give it a try.

Don't be fooled by the rustic appearance, and the out-of-the-way location. This place has a fun vibe. The staff are engaged, and the food is amazing. Definitely eat the pork. It's to die for. My husband and I are fans of good food, and this place surpassed our expectations. Even though there was a line up at the door when... More

Flying Pig is on a very unexpected street. We have been there several times. Good food, good service and if you aren't there before 6 (anyway when we have been there) you will be waiting for a table. It always seems crowded, have a pretty good size bar, large wine selection. BUT the sound level gets so bad you really... More

Great food and creative pairings, but overpriced for the setting, ambiance and portion sizes. NO view and more of a rustic "sports bar" feel. IF you go, choose one of the pork options. I tried Pork Belly for the first time, in spite of the name. REALLY GOOD. Will I go again? Don't know -- but DEFINITELY if they have... More

The Flying Pig was one of the first to reinvent the dining experience in Oceanside. With fresh ingredients and a healthy twist on comfort foods, you won't be disappointed with the Pig. The food is delicious and you will want to come back for more. Service was friendly and responsive and Roddy the owner himself, will seat you and make... More

My husband and I love to explore for "off the wall" restaurants with good food. This place is one of those type places. It is about 4 blocks from the beach and looks like a local hangout from the outside. Inside the decor is reminiscent of the 70's with record albums as your menus and a mixture of different styles...
