Carlsbad Lifestyle – Restaurants in Carlsbad

A fun part of living in Carlsbad is discovering, and enjoying, our diverse dining options, which range from very casual to higher end. Carlsbad doesn’t offer the diversity of restaurants found in San Diego, but there are a number of options, with a few new ones on the way to suit most tastes and budgets. Many of these are stand-alone restaurants but some included here are in hotels.

This list of Carlsbad restaurants is not all-inclusive. These are some of the restaurants I am aware of or have tried, plus others that have been suggested by people I know. No one has provided any incentive to me to be on this list or has specifically asked me to include them – it’s my own decision as to who to include, with apologies to other venues in Carlsbad that are not on the list.

If you have other favorite Carlsbad restaurants you think should be included please let me know! And I will add to this list periodically. Which restaurant will you try tonight?
