Neiman's is housed in one of Carlsbad's oldest and most striking buildings, which began as two mansions, mirrored in image. There is a narrow area for patio dining and naturally that is where I eat.
If you go to the website listed below you will see a button titled, "Coupon," click it and print out the $5.00 coupon before dining at Neiman's. I did and the coupon covered the price of a drink.
Twin Inns. It was later called Neiman's, that is the name you would have known it by at the time you lived here. After 2004 it was named Ocean House and now it's returned to it's roots and is called The Land & Water Company.
Gerhard Schutte, president of the Land & Water Company in Carlsbad, built a palatial Queen Anne home and one of his partners, D.D. Wadsworth, built a mirror image of it on the same block where Starbucks is now located. The buildings were called The Twin Inns. Early in 2000 it was renamed Ocean House and when that business failed it was renamed, The Land & Water Company, which pays tribute to its origins. I haven't eaten there but have heard that they serve really good food, an eclectic version of California Cuisine with French, Hawaiian and Japanese influences which sound pretty interesting. I haven't updated my Twin Inns tip yet.

Favorite Dish The last time I ate there, I ordered the # 3 lunch special for $9.95. Pork roast served with garlic mashed potatoes and a melody of steamed vegetables. Also, with the $5.00 coupon, I had a free Bloody Mary!
