Great beers on Tap and plenty of great food to go with the beer. Our waitress was very nice and explained the dishes & beers.

Operated through out COVID without approval, made promises to contribute to homeless people but Not One penny or any surplus food has been seen, This place is overpriced and has destroyed the neighborhood, by taking all residents parking. I would not patronize them if the...food was free, The server who served us had a cold and cough and should have been sent home.More

I was visiting a friend in Oceanside and every time i'm down there we always go to LTH. We have never been disappointed with the deviled eggs. Absolutely the best. Always have great local beers on tap. I ordered the empanadas which were delicious. My...buddies had the cauliflower mac and cheese and the dirty bird. Best thing about the lunch outing was Amanda our server. Always on top of things and had great recommendations. The outdoor patio is one of the best I've seen during these times. Thanks for a great experience. Can't wait to go back.More

Checked this place out due to #1 rating on Trip Advisor, and it didn’t disappoint. Great chef’s menu. The specialty drink was so good I had two! The empanadas, short-rib dip and seafood soup were too pretty to eat - but we did anyway! Creative,...amazingly-tasty food. The prices were very reasonable for what you get. In fact, they could easily charge more for the seafood soup - you get a perfectly-seared scallop, 3 large shrimps, perfect salmon, tons of mussels, potatoes, etc. in a yummy cream broth. Service was super helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and fast. Recommend highly!More

I love a place where the menu reflects a chefs passion for food food. For me, in the US, those types of restaurants where every item a unique creation. In Oceanside that restaurant is LTP. Amazing food and well, amazing food.

If you are in Oceanside, CA then you have to eat and drink at LTH. They have plenty of outdoor dining and the food is outstanding! Order a beer and share some WTF short rib fries, you will not be disappointed.

Awesome. Just as advertised! Took a chance due to TA and was not disappointed! Outside due to COVID, but very nice and under a cover. Wait staff was awesome and so was the food. And a decent price. Give it a try!

I am sorry to have such a late answer, but all of our tours are gluten free and vegetarian friendly. I just need to know in advance as I order the food 3 days ahead of the tours. We can make some last minute adjustments but... More

I can't help you on this, but I believe you can check their menu on-line or call them. My wife and I will be in Oceanside in 2 weeks and will check it out again.
