Would not go again, as they have been ignoring the rules and social distancing requirements Including the staff not wearing masks in the Kitchen

If you visit Oceanside this bar is well worth a visit, good selection of craft beer. Bar food is good quality at a fair price. Will be back in October is this virus situation allows.

Great service, beers, and pizza. Sat in bar area and was greeted promptly. Sat and had a few beers. They have an excellent selection of their own brews and nice guest taps too. Ordered pizza, salad, and wings to go. Delicious food! Great spot to...check out; walking distance from the train station.More

Great beer, great food, and great service. Chili and garlic bread was excellent. The Maffia sandwich was average, but I had the lettuce and tomato left off. Great bread, just not necessarily anything special. I would have it again after trying a few other items....Buffalo flavor wings were excellent! Definitely would have them again and probably try some other flavors since buffalo was so good. Their gold medal IPA was excellent as well. We tried two flights before ordering pints and all were good - not necessarily what we like on all, but all were solid flavors and drinkable. Even when it was busy the service was good too.More

This is a fun spot that has the potential to become our weekly night out. Total crowd pleaser!!! Televisions showcase popular sports games and also really cool outdoor activity. There is a jukebox to play selected music. Arcade games such as pinball and the claw...machine to delight patrons who are not interested in hanging out at the table. Sound is at the optimal level, nothing is competing for attention. Draft beer selection is eclectic, and oh so delicious! Awesome ‘ happy hour’ deals, and daily specials. The cheese curds are a must; not greasy or weighted down at all, truly delightful. It’s also right down the street to the ocean, perfect for all types of get togethers!More

Good beers from the brewery, food upscale from usual, salads, dessert. We started with just 2 people and added 6 more throughout the day. Staff was very accomodating to adding to our group, even though the additions were mostly children.

We stopped in on a Friday afternoon and enjoyed it so much returned later that same evening for a second visit. Terrific layout, long bar. The beer selection is top notch and we fell in love with Rye Dawn, and incredible brown ale. We had...the Artichoke Brochette on our first stop, absolutely fabulous! Loaded with lots of artichoke. Enjoyed the Kali Kush Wings on the second visit. Service was top notch. We will be back for sure!More

Breakwater is a no-nonsense place to spend a few hours on a lazy afternoon. The beer selection is solid, as are the pub-style menu offerings. Patio seating is also available, and staff is friendly and happy to make recommendations.

My wife visited on spec, looking for some food. A pleasant venue with very friendly and helpful bar-staff I tried samplers of a couple of IPO's and chose a good one while my wife ordered a white wine and pizza to share. The drinks were...great, the pizza was excellent and the surrounds very comfortable. Music was more background than blaring, which is the way we like it Overall a very pleasant experience - we hope to get back before we depart Oceanside!!More
