For years, locals have recognized the iconic Lumberyard area of coastal Encinitas as central to their community. This all makes good sense since Encinitas translates to “little oaks” in Spanish, drawing on the fact that the region was dotted with lumberyards in the 1940s.
Today, regulars and visitors alike can celebrate this beach town’s roots at Lumberyard Tavern! Located on Coast Hwy 101, we’re all about providing a one-of-a-kind experience, with a variety of comfort food favorites such as pulled pork, “rave review” burgers, meatloaf and a lip-smackin’ assortment of famous “Cardiff Crack” tri-tip specialties. There’s more than “meats” the eye here too, with vegetarian options, such as Apple Goat Cheese Flatbread and Cauliflower Tacos. Yep, you heard it right. Delish!
Staying true to the spirit of a well-stocked saloon, we boast a smooth selection of fourteen bourbons, plus Tennessee whiskeys, scotch-whiskey blends and single malts that can proudly stand up to our rotating selection of craft tap beers. Join our Whiskey Club for a true connoisseur experience. Sample each of the 40 whiskeys and scotches on the list for your chance at a trip to Kentucky! Between the food and the libations, one would be hard pressed to suggest a better place to kick back and experience the vibe of our unique seaside community.
