About Waterbar

Pacific Beach’s Waterbar

Waterbar was born of a deep appreciation for and understanding of the free-spirited creativity, fresh cuisine, and approachable culture unique to California’s southern coastline.

Located alongside the vibrant ocean-front boardwalk in Pacific Beach, Waterbar offers only the best in tantalizing menus, innovative libations, panoramic views, and lively entertainment. Our “social seafood” menu is inspired by East coast, West coast and Baja cuisines, and transforms the freshest flavors through our chef’s unique renditions of coastal classics. Flavor-forward craft cocktails, local micro-brews, national brand favorites, and a diverse wine list are offered across comfortable bar seating, community-table dining, and intimate ocean-side tables. Waterbar’s thriving, energetic environment captures the passion of San Diego’s iconic coastline for an unforgettably satisfying experience.

Fresh Ingredients

From-scratch Kitchen

The “social seafood” construct that forms the foundation for Waterbar’s concept would not be possible without a distinct and thoughtful appreciation for every ingredient. With an eye for sustainability, our culinary team leverages unique artisan and local products to create masterful, timeless and trend-setting dishes from scratch, ensuring that only the freshest and most flavorful food is served to every customer.

Craft Culture

Our commitment to excellence is marked by an ability to correctly position both products and personnel to the benefit of every guest. From sip to savor to service, we choose to focus on the development of a “craft culture,” a culture marked by the enjoyment of artisan wines, local, regional, and international brews, and both classic and progressive cocktails – all perfectly paired with delicate yet approachable dishes.
