One thing that has always struck me about San Diego is the lack of "beachside" restaurants. (When I think "beachside", I think "on the beach" or beach front.)
Every place you mentioned above (save Lahaina's, which could be worst bar in san diego in my opinon 90% guys, 10% girls, and Greenflash) are not "beachside".
Hotel Del is one.
Tower 23 is another.
Del Mar has a few, but the cuisine is lacking.
San Diego is wide open for good "beachside" dinning.
I agree with you whole heartedly on this one. Its a common dilemma for me when we'd like to have drinks and food at the beach. And by beach I mean I can see the ocean from where I'm eating! For a beach community there's a serious lack of these locales...at least ones that have great food. If anyone has suggestions I'd be more then grateful!
Some spots I end up with that I go to for the view:
-Peohe's, Crab Catcher, Beach House, C Level,
I always leave wishing there were other options.
Speaking of beachside (or bayside) has anyone tried Candelas at the Coronado Landing. The restaurant itself is gorgeous, but how's the food?
