Dinner was so good....we ate there twice in a row!

We stayed at the Cypress Inn and had dinner at Terry's as well. Good, not great but very much worthy of having a nice dinner here. We had great service, enjoyed the ambiance and had great meals. Scale of 1-10, 10 being to die for, a solid 8.

Although very small, you can always count on seeing many wonderful pets. Had dinner there, was great, lamb, will return; house wine in the living room was very acceptable.

We often come here for drinks on the patio and it remains a favorite. They make a great cocktail and the martinis are generous but not so big you don't make it to dinner. As everyone says, they're great to the pooches as well. This trip we also had dinner here and really enjoyed the burgers and the mini-Reuben appetizer... More

A very enjoyable lunch on the patio, on a beautiful day! We both ordered hamburgers, which were excellent. I recommend the sweet potato fries. It was so pleasant watching all the well behaved dogs, and other dog walkers would stop by so that their dogs could have a drink in the bowl by the entrance.

Treated well from the minute we walked in the door. Had a great meal with lamb lollipops that were cooked to perfection and sand dabs. The appetizers were so good that we could have made a full meal of them. Loved the Brussel sprouts and lamb meatball. The server made us feel valued as customers and was friendly and efficient....

Not much to say other than Great place. Our server was very attentive, food was delicious. By the way, Terry's Lounge is dog-friendly. Very cozy place, just a Gem in Carmel.We will be back.

I didn't eat here and I didn't think I was going to review this place, but I have to give a shout out to the bartender, Crystal. When a question was asked, she just poured a taste. When a taste of Pinot was missing the mid palate, she just opened a new bottle for us. I ordered a Manhattan with... More

Doris Day owns the cypress inn and Terry's lounge is in the inn. It is an interesting place to have a cocktail or two. It does get very busy especially on a weekend . There is small,outdoor area you can sit out in bit the atmosphere isn't the same as in the lounge. It is filled with memorabilia from Doris... More
