Terry's Lounge is located inside the Cypress Inn, they have both indoor and outdoor seating. I would opt for the outdoor seating for a lovely Sunday Brunch! The other diners raved about their eggs benedict, we saw everyone order all kinds of brunch specials and see that they're pleased. The coffee kept flowing, people chattering and smiles all around.

Terry's Lounge is attached to the Cypress Inn, where we stayed for over a week. It attracts many locals and guests of other hotels in addition to people staying at the Cypress Inn. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming and the food is excellent. We had dinner here many times during our stay in spite of lots of other choices.... More

Lovely outside patio area. We had the opportunity to enjoy lunch there just last week. Great ambiance. Really enjoyed the live music we dined to. Outstanding.

We stooped in for lunch, - which they serve until 4pm! Great ambiance, excellent food. We went because of the Doris Day connection and her love of dogs. Beautiful outside patio area for glass of wine and light lunch. Of note we were visiting from Midwest and did not have our dogs with us, but as it turned out as... More

This is one of many businesses we visited during our Carmel Food Tour. We had a Manhattan and a sampling of their food. Our teen had a non-alcoholic Manhattan they made without us even asking for. Everything was really good. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to share some history of the area and business with us. The... More

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...

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
