Oceanside Restaurant Review

: The small but elegant dining room is heavily peppered with athletic types of all ages fresh from one of four 18-hole championship golf courses or one of the clay tennis courts. And after burning all those calories, folks feel justified in tucking into elegantly presented dishes such as the grilled swordfish with a balanced lemon-cucumber-dill sauce, or a more rib-sticking but equally successful grilled New York strip loin with Parmesan-chive fries. The bread basket is anything but perfunctory, but do leave room for liquid refreshment knockouts like the Pirate’s Kiss piña colada, devilishly available by the glass or pitcher.
