A flying bridge is an open area on top of a ship's pilothouse that serves as an operating station for the officers in good weather. ...


Located just north of the Highway 76 and Coast Highway intersection off the 5 freeway, the Flying Bridge has sweeping views of the Oceanside Harbor, Pacific Ocean and the San Luis Rey River.... whether it is the morning surf, afternoon sailors, dramatic sunsets or the evening harbor lights -- the view is always awesome!

Welcome to the Flying Bridge!

The Flying Bridge was first opened in the 50’s when Pacific Coast Highway (101) was the only coastal route between the star studded streets of Hollywood and the excitement of Del Mar Race Track as well as the allure of Mexico.Many of the Hollywood Elite are said to have dined in the dining room and “lounged” in the lounge.   Locals tell of their first date, prom night, family celebrations or a night out dancing at the Flying Bridge in the days gone by.   In recent years, the Chamber of Commerce and the newly formed Main Street Coalition of businesses have been working hard to revitalize the downtown area.We are proud to be part of Oceanside’s history and it’s Future.   We have been honored with the 2001 Small Business of the Year Leadership Award from Channel 10 for our work with the community and we will use it as a benchmark to work with the community to help however we can.   We welcome the opportunity to work with non profit groups, community and school sports and academic groups to fundraise and have several programs available.   Community groups are encouraged to utilize the facility for meetings.    

Lunch is served Monday - Friday from 11 am to 4 pm   
On Saturday and Sundays we serve a menu service champagne brunch in the dining room from 10 am to 3 pm.  
Whether it is a casual dinner, a family celebration, a night out with friends, dancing and meeting new friends, or a business meeting, the owners and staff of the Flying Bridge are here to meet your needs.
