Friendly service - great wine and atmosphere

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...

Stopped in for a break from shopping we knew and were expecting pets. Both of us have no issue with that, however, it was pet freedom to the extreme. Most pet owners kept their dogs near and in line. It always takes 1-2 to spoil it for all. We had our beverage and vetoed staying for further dining. Rules not... More

Our family drove to Carmel to eat here because of its reputation as a fine restaurant that welcomes dogs, not only on the patio but also in a portion of the restaurant. We could not have been more pleased. The atmosphere was charming, everyone loved their food, and best of all we had our dog with us. It was so... More

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

The small courtyard is a lovely place to have dinner on a warm night. It is very dog friendly so there will be easily about 6 or 7 dogs quietly sitting at their owner's feet. The food was very good. We also had a delightful serenade by a classical guitarist as an added treat.

Food was wonderful and the atmosphere is very special. I have gone twice and will go back. Had the Artisan plate and Sand Dabs both times...too good not to! Bar drinks are very good. Love that it belongs to an icon...Doris Day. She doesn't let it slide on her celebrity..it is an awesome place. People are allowed to come with... More

Popped in here for dinner this evening and by the end of the night felt obliged to come here and recommend this restaurant. First off, the food was truly excellent and some of the best we'd eaten in California, from the beautiful mussels for a starter to the braised ribs or classic burger for main course, all were presented well...
