My first experience after coming from the "right" coast to the "left" was at Terry's. I had the sensation that everything at Terry's was VIVID. Everything here seemed so different from New York- it was like getting used to the bright light after being in dim light for a while. Rather, it was like being introduced to new colors altogether...

Nice atmosphere. Reasonable prices for Carmel. Good service. Nice Waiter. Good food. Doris Day nostalgia. Found this gem through Trip Advisor!

I liked this place so much I brought my guy back to celebrate our 30 yrs together along with our beach loving Golden. The patio is lovely, the hostess charming & gracious. They gave us a split of champagne ! The sesame covered ahi & sauce were wonderful. I've had the scallops twice now but I wouldn't get them again... More

Terry's Restaurant & Lounge located at Cypress Inn is a nice dog friendly environment with good service. Unfortunately the quality of the food is well below this standard. My Oeufs Beneditine was reasonable, but the crab meat that was supposed to come in it was barely noticeable. There was maybe one ounce of crab meat in it. My wife's fried... More

Loved the atmosphere and the quaintness. Food was above average for a hotel and I would highly recommend this if you are staying at the Inn

Great spot for a drink and dessert. They show Doris Day movies in closed caption on the tvs which I loved. Chocolate lava cake was super tiny which was disappointing but we enjoyed the experience.

Great relaxing spot to enjoy a glass of wine and dog friendly. It felt like a local gathering place - server and patrons so friendly! We will definitely go back!

I had read about Terry's Bar and we had planned to visit for a nightcap one evening, but we didn't have a chance. Instead, we went for lunch one afternoon and sat out in the beautiful courtyard by the fireplace. I love dogs but don't have one, so it was fun to visit with the well-behaved dogs that were also...

Thank you Tripadvisor, I'd never have known about this great place to eat. It's inside Doris Day's hotel & looks like its just a bar but it has additional seating & options for quieter dining if you want to talk. The dogs being allowed inside was just a delight, all smiles ! Our hostess & waiter were very welcoming &... More

The stuff was very friendly and I think you can feel yourself comfy. I had a steak what was very good (I ordered it medium rare and so it was) with some smashed potatoes that were - just smashed potatoes... On our trip we had pretty often smashed potatoes and they were, to my surprise, very good, because they have... More
