With all of the dining options in San Diego, there has always been one big gaping hole - beachfront dining. Sure, there are excellent waterfront options downtown and farther north in places like La Jolla and Del Mar, but for the tourists and residents of Mission Beach, Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach there are few restaurants with a worthwhile, unobstructed view. Eat.Drink.Sleep. Hospitality is about to change all of that with the introduction of Cannonball. Formerly SoundWave and before that Cane's Bar & Grill, this new restaurant concept will include a sprawling, 6,000 square foot sushi and tapas bar suspended above the Mission Beach boardwalk, adjacent to Wave House and Belmont Park.

tomatoes, cilantro and green onion.
Wise will be working closely with sushi chef Hugo Arreguin, whose past experiences include Tower 23 and Sushi on a Roll, to create a complementary blend of sushi and tapas options. Bar manager Chris Schatzman brings it all together with his offerings of beach craft cocktails, sake and brews.

Plans for a raw bar are also in place, but it won’t be available come July. For now, the venue will accommodate 200 guests, while completion of the rest of the space is underway. When all is said and done, Cannonball will have a capacity of more than 400 guests for what is sure to be a beach-goers' haven.
Cannonball is located at 3105 Ocean Front Walk and will be open for lunch and dinner from 11am daily. Can’t wait to jump in!
