Editorial Review of
Lumberyard Tavern and Grill
Lumberyard Tavern & Grill is one such new Encinitas hot spot that takes beachside bar grub to the next level, without losing its cool. Centrally located in the classic Lumberyard Shopping Center on Highway 101, Lumberyard Tavern & Grill is a popular restaurant for catching a bite and watching the game, pre-partying during happy hour, or recovering from the night before during Saturday and Sunday brunch. Lumberyard boasts 10 flat screen HDTVs, a dog friendly patio, and plenty of free parking. The best part? Lumberyard one-ups downtown “industry night” by offering local industry folk half-off the entire bill, every Sunday night. Perks aside, we love Lumberyard most for its massive electric menu of affordable brunch, lunch and dinner eats.
A few of our favorite lunchtime entrees range from the Border Burger with chipotle aioli, pepper jack cheese, jalapenos, lettuce, tomato and onion; to the Steak Sandwich with grilled onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, melted white cheddar cheese and creamy horseradish on a French baguette; and the Ahi Wrap with greens, julienned veggies, rice and creamy Asian dressing, in a spinach tortilla. For dinner, treat yourself to the Blackened Mahi Mahi topped with honey lemon butter, served with rice and veggies; Pork Loin Skewers – Szechuan marinated and served with mashed potatoes and veggies.
