The wife and I taking a little day trip down to North San Diego County on Monday for our 19th Anniversary. Looking for recommendations on something for late afternoon/early dinner on the beach or overlooking the beach? Anyone have any recommendations, Wife prefers steak type places, so that would be the preference.

Thanks

Beach front restaurants kinda limited, there's a few in Cardiff on the beach otherwise 333 in Oside is a good choice and a bit more elegant.

Nothing good beach side in Carlsbad

333 in Oceanside ranks high

There are a lot of Fantastic little bistro restaurants but they don’t have great views of the beach /coastline so you limited unless you go to La Jolla or down in San Diego Bay Area.

Vigalucci steakhouse in Carlsbad is across the coast hwy from beach cliffs so you ain't seeing any sand, just open ocean. Also on the expensive end of the scale too.....albeit good food.
Lol, great view of the power plant too.😊

There's a Ruth's Chris in Del Mar too. Eddie V's seafood and steaks in La Jolla is also outstanding. Great location with views up to Laguna.

I like Georges, as has been mentioned but isn't north county...

Don't drive all the way to SD north county - stop in San Clemente and try Vine - South of Nicks - Brussels Bistro or Capistrano Wine Company. All are on Del Mar (main st in town) or a block away. Have a nice dinner then walk to one of the ice cream shops or after dinner spot for a a glass of wine or???

We ate there on Tuesday night. Great food and atmosphere. I gotta say the people in that area have a bit more class than what I see in Huntington

Jakes - As mentioned in Del Mar right on the beach.
West - great steak in Carlsbad west of the 5fwy but not on the beach.
333 Pacific - great food on the coast in Oceanside if wanting to stay North
