Great way to taste the Oceanside sea breeze. A place for all ages to fish without a fishing license. Municipal piers are the one place no one needs a fishing license. It is uneven planking so one must be aware and walk accordingly. No live bait to buy but a souvenir shop with cute things.

Lovely stroll on the pier complete with a pelican visit! Also stopped in at Ruby's for a beer. We also watched the surfers. A must visit.

We were staying at the Oceanside Pier Wyndham Resort across the street so really go to explore this Pier. At the very end is Ruby's which is diner style food serving beer and wine. Ruby's was good and everyone enjoyed. The Pier also has the ground level/beach level which has a theater, a fish restaurant, and vendors. This pier has... More

What a view. It is a long walk to Ruby's at the end. You can not believe the vista. No dogs on the pier.

We enjoyed the scenery, the pelicans and egrets were comical, and wished we had time to dine at the restaurant at the end. There are firepits at the end of the beach, and the sunsets were beautiful here.

The food at Ruby's is delicious and the pier is fun because people are fishing, walking and visiting.

I always take visiting friends and relatives for a morning walk on Oceanside Pier culminating with breakfast at Ruby's at the end of the Pier. It's a real slice-of-life experience of the beach community. The surfers are amazing to watch, there are lots of fishermen and families looking for a good catch, there's a cast of local characters adding flavor... More

Oceanside Pier - nice families out for a walk on the pier, people fishing, rough looking people, and many other characters. It's a cool place to visit and people watch. I have never felt unsafe- there are always lifeguards and police nearby.
