A Favorite Carlsbad Restaurant – Chandler’s

Join us at Chandler's Oceanfront Dining in Carlsbad for your next “food photo” post. Located at Cape Rey Carlsbad Beach in Carlsbad and overlooking the ocean, diners can choose from a menu of choices that are familiar but never ordinary. We think of it as long-time favorites reinvented with upscale ingredients, served with a remarkable ocean view. Innovative and understated, the menu takes California cuisine up a notch, expertly crafting each dish with fresh, local ingredients to satisfy the foodie in all of us. 

In keeping with our West Coast mindset, dining is always in a simple, open setting, both indoors and out. Open seven days a week, diners will appreciate the menu’s diversity, complementary wine selections, personal service and of course, stunning sunsets served daily.
