The Flying Pig Pub and Kitchen is a culinary gem that deserves more than just five stars.

From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with an exceptional level of service that set the tone for an unforgettable dining experience. The staff went above and beyond to ensure every detail was perfect, and their attentiveness made us feel truly special.

We indulged in four separate courses, and each one was a masterpiece. The flavors were so exquisite that we found ourselves closing our eyes to fully savor every bite. The chef’s skill and creativity were evident in every dish, making it a feast for both the palate and the senses.

As a vegetarian, I was delighted when the chef prepared a special pasta dish just for me. The fresh pasta was perfectly cooked, the homemade ricotta was creamy and rich, and the fresh vegetables in a pesto sauce were bursting with flavor. It was a dish that showcased the chef’s dedication to quality and innovation.

My husband enjoyed a steak dinner that was nothing short of perfection. The steak was so tender it practically melted in his mouth, and the flavors were so delicious that he nearly licked the plate clean. It’s rare to find a dish that leaves such a lasting impression, but this one certainly did.

My son ordered the octopus, and his girlfriend had the mussels. Both dishes were met with high praise and left them raving about the incredible flavors and impeccable preparation. It was clear that The Flying Pig excels in delivering top-notch seafood as well.

Throughout the evening, the owners personally checked on us, ensuring everything was to our satisfaction. Their genuine care and passion for their restaurant were evident, adding a personal touch that made our experience even more memorable.

The Flying Pig is not just a restaurant; it’s an experience. Every aspect, from the service to the food, exceeded our expectations. A five-star review doesn’t do it justice. If you’re looking for a place where culinary artistry and outstanding service come together, The Flying Pig is a must-visit.

101/10 would eat here again

Service was so welcoming, respectful and helpful, food was amazing, the view looking out the window was beautiful. Family friendly.

Amazing food, great service, awesome people! Loved it.

Some of the best food I’ve had in San Diego.

The truffle fries and the Mac and cheese were delicious, but the Tri Tip sandwich was the best part.

We came to the Flying Pig Pub and Kitchen to try the Pig burger. It was so good!

The burger was perfect and their fries were so good. My favorite thing though was their goat cheese appetizer. It was absolutely delicious. I could eat 10 of these. I would go back just for this appetizer.

The food here was very good and the service was phenomenal!

Very unique style and very clean atmosphere.

Amazing food and service!

We stumbled upon this place as we were heading somewhere else. It was FABULOUS!

Everything. The food, service and atmosphere. We had the deviled eggs, the beet salad amazing and the banana pastry beignets! Off the charts!

And our server was amazing! Looks like they expanded into the space next door and can understand why. Thank you Flying Pig!

Get over there quick! ☺️🎉🎉

A must try. Staff was on point and attentive.

Brussel were great! Love the vibe. Keep it up guys.

We went on a date night and we were so impressed!

Great steak, amazing homemade pasta, and the beignets were a perfect way to end the meal. We can’t wait to go back and bring our friends and family!!

C.A.B. cheeseburger (Certified Angus Beef) is unbelievable! Quite possibly the best burger I have ever had.

And spicy! Will be eating that again soon!

Excellent and friendly service, for sure you will come back.

No trip to Oceanside would be complete without at least one visit to the Flying Pig.

Food is outstanding, staff is friendly and attentive.

Fantastic visit earlier this evening!

Our family and kids visiting from Dublin, Ireland loved it, too! Shrimp with Alabama White Sauce was fabulous.

Greatest service in a long time!

I asked for a drink they didn’t have any owner legitly went and got it. Who does that in today’s day and age? Food was excellent 👌 will visit again!

Amazing service! Thank you so much!

We came in with an infant and they were wonderful with us and her. Server and owners were all exceptional. We will be back!

The food, service, and atmosphere were amazing… highly recommend.

Hosted a team dinner and they did not disappoint… reach out to host your next event or party.

Highly recommend this iconic gastropub in Oceanside.

Food was outstanding – fresh, perfectly cooked, creative. Service excellent. We’ll be back for sure!

Delicious food, good service, and a real gem!

I just saved this place in my list of ❤️ because we are definitely coming back.

We came here thanks to a YT video of Jacation, the entrees, the burgers and the sandwiches were so delicious. Also all the staff members were very friendly and helpful.

The food was wonderful!

The staff were all super nice and helpful. We can’t wait to take another long drive back here for lunch or dinner.

Everything came out perfect and on time. We can’t wait to go back again.

We stumbled across this place, looking for a good meal before heading home. They have small menu, but what they have on there is all amazing! Our kids are picky eaters and they devoured everything. We started with the charcuterie board and the truffle fries. We should have just picked one, it was a lot! My wife had the shrimp and grits, I had the pork chop special and our kids had a burger and Mac & cheese.

The fried chicken sandwich was fantastic!

Had a great time at dinner on a Saturday night.

Sat at the bar and the staff was very kind and accommodating and checked in with us frequently. Portions of entrees were generous. Try the Mojito with CleverFox rum.

Ok. So this is the place to visit.

I’m fussy, I’ll be honest. If you want hearty food, a service that is a mix of 5 star and family style, come here. Food is exquisite, service is brilliant, it’s a unique menu. This is the new O’side baby! Will return and make sure others come too.

Came with a friend and had a lovely dinner, the drinks and food were delicious!

I especially loved the hummus plate, they add a bunch of items on the side like chickpeas and artichokes that are super good!

Five stars highly recommend!

The bar food was amazing! And the drinks top-notch!

Super friendly staff, cool decor, clean establishment, and quite possibly THE BEST Chicken n Waffles I’ve ever had!!!

Highly recommend! Will definitely be back.

Great, fun experience. Friendly staff, fast service.

Spotless place

First of all, the staff was super FRIENDLY and felt like home.

Then the food showed showed up, it was sooooo good the fries were 🔥, the 🍔 was full of flavor.

We ate at a table outside.

The famous pig burger with a pork patty, beef patty and bacon jam was to die for! Oh and the salad was great too… I dream about their salt and vinegar fries! Shoot…I just made myself hungry!

A winner all ’round.

Very friendly staff, to die for blackened fish sando and fries, cold draft beer…

Great people, music…

drinks insane & even greater food!!!!! You need to come try this place 😍.

Great staff!

Steak was fantastic but the mashed potatoes and vegetables were almost better. Excellent beer and whiskey selection.

The Flying Pig is one of the best local restaurants in Oceanside!

I’ve been coming here for years!

The owners are amazing! Super personable and really care about the business! The old location was super chill and relaxing! The new location is super inviting and has a great vibe!

The food is absolutely delicious! I really love the blue cheese wedge salad. Add some salmon or shrimp and now you’ve got a full blown mouth watering meal!

The steak is awesome! Each time I’ve come it’s a different type! The rib eye is probably my favorite!

The pork chops are so tender and juicy! The Mac and cheese is to die for! You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!

You have to try The Flying Pig! You won’t be disappointed!

The Flying Pig is always amazing and comfy.

I love going there with friends but it’s also one of my favorite places to go when I’m on my own. I always feel completely at ease at “the pig”.

Fast, friendly service, AMAZING food, craft cocktails & such a cool atmosphere.

…this was the best meal I’ve had all year! 5 stars ⭐️

The chipotle mussels with sausage were excellent and typical of the creative flair they inject into all of their recipes.

I look forward to working my way through the complete menu as I plan more regularly visits in the future. The early originator of the “Flip Flop Fine Dining” movement in Oceanside 11 years ago is still among the elites!

The whole staff was a delight and food was incredible!

I can’t wait to visit CA again just to have their food once more.

If you love mussels, you must visit!

Sooooo delicious!

I got the pig burger and salad it was done very very well! Would definitely recommend!

Outdoor seating was perfect; dog friendly and cool vibe. Will totally return.

The staff and food are amazing and will leave you smiling…

tried the pork shank tonight, and I think I have a new favorite!


The perfectly cooked pasta was sauced with a delicious spicy red sauce and contained shrimp and mussels.

OMG. What a great find.

Food was delicious.

The scallops and braised pork are amazing…

10/10 for food and friendly service.

Good eats and Flying Pig decor

…friendly staff.

This food is delicious, and the service was great.

The drinks were amazing.

Excellent food and it’s all sharable.

When in Oceanside I highly recommend you eat here!

This place is great! One of the gems in Oceanside.

Good spot to grab a beer and app. The deviled eggs (oh my!) and truffle fries are delish! Happy hour is a killer deal. Lots of outdoor seating close to the water.

Excellent happy hour.

Great food with friendly service!

What a great find!

I was with a group of conference attendees in search of a meal after a late evening conference event. We walked up Mission in search of something better than pizza and the Flying Pig invited us in. Even though they were at the end of their day they made our group feel welcome. And the food was fantastic. My colleagues raved about their mac and cheese, their salads with fried chicken, their salads with salmon, the mussels, etc. I had a simple Caesar salad that was turned into something less simple by the incredible croutons they put on top. Those croutons were a bit of heaven. Soft yet crunchy and incredible flavorful. The staff were absolutely fabulous (I’m sorry I can’t call out anyone by name) and their wine list was also very good. I would definitely go back next time I’m in Oceanside.

Probably the best meal I’ve had, sitting at a bar.

Service was great. I had The Steak, which was a ribeye, cooked and seasoned perfectly. It came with mashed potatoes and some mixed vegetables. We got the Mac and cheese as an appetizer. He asked if I wanted fried chicken with that. Didn’t think much of it, expecting a few small chunks of chicken. No it was like half a fried chicken on top! Everything was very awesome. Will definitely come here again.

We had a fantastic dinner here!

Salmon skin was crisped perfectly, pork chop was tender and juicy. And all side dishes were hearty and amazing…mashed potato, grits, and risotto. They don’t take reservations, but we came in early so luckily got a great spot inside. So glad we found this little gem on our family vacation! Disclaimer: I rarely give 5 stars out!

Fantastic food!!

Indoor + outdoor dining. We will be back.

The Mac & Cheese is to die for!

So rich and flavorful. 10/10 on my personal list of great Mac and Cheese!

…super yummy!

Fried chicken thighs with collard greens and mashed potatoes, super yummy! Good selection of craft beers and cocktails. Outdoor dining. Definitely going back.

Great staff and top shelf Spirits selection…

and don’t miss the desserts

First time at the new location!

Tried just about everything on the between lunch and dinner menu and it was all great! Be sure to get the deviled eggs!

Food was excellent; service outstanding.

Shrimp and grits, marinated Deviled eggs and fish of the day are some of my favorites. Fabulous dining experience!

One of my favorite places.

I’m so happy that they have reopened! This place won’t disappoint. Great food and drinks.

I love a creative place!

I’ve been here 3 times already since we moved here and will continue to go. Staff is very friendly and there’s always a very cool atmosphere. The menu is ever changing and has things I’ve never tried before on it.

The Flying Pig has always provided quality delicious meals.

I’m impressed how they have been able to continue to provide exceptional quality meals to new and returning customers throughout the pandemic. The family meals have been awesome! Tonight we got to dine outside on the patio and have the full (safe) experience, enjoying the Valentine’s Day Special! Thank you! Life felt a little “normal” for awhile. Cheers to supporting local businesses!

Always great food and service.

10 years of excellence! A must do if you are visiting Oceanside.
