After you’ve built up your appetite walking around the Flower Fields, head over to the Carlsbad Premium Outlets for a bite to eat and some shopping under the sun.  With over 90 outlet stores, heavy on designer names, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

Just across the street from the outlets you will find three delicious restaurants—BJ’s Brew House, P.F. Changs and King’s Fish House.

Put on a bib, pull up a seat, and soak up the seafood experience at King’s Fish House: The funny odd hand-painted signs, the no-name dishes with unforgettable flavor, the fresh-caught oysters and clams piled high like glistening treasure troves, the hand-lettered specials on ancient chalkboards, and the savory simmer of every combination of spices imaginable are there for your delight.

At P.F. Chang’s you are surrounded by a unique environment combining influences of Chinese and American cultures. A panoramic hand-painted mural depicting 12th century China is visible from the main dining room and commands attention as the restaurant’s centerpiece while several terra-cotta warriors stand guard. These delicious Asian dishes will leave you satisfied and coming back for more.

BJ’s Brew House started as a pizzeria in Southern California and has grown into a restaurant and brew house with the introduction of handcrafted beer and a full menu. BJ’s makes its own roote beer and brews their beer right on the premises.  BJ’s has an upscale feel with plenty of big screen TVs everywhere so you won’t have to miss a minute of March Madness.
