Interesting place. It has a history, which is great. There are three different places to sit, making it very unique in the sense of ambiance. There's a more formal-ish dining room, there's a tiny bar with cozy seating, and then there's the patio that bridges the two. Great, great patio with fireplaces riddled throughout.

Nice outdoor seating area. Good food. Efficient service. Wonderful painting on the wall of the building next to it depicting rolling hillside and blue skies. Must have taken months to complete. Not sure if Clint still owns it, but it certainly was his once upon a time, so maybe he pops in every now and then!

Can't speak for the food. VERY nice place for drinks, had a few beers. The entrance is sort of hidden so pay attention. Also, it has a large outdoor patio completely heated with fireplaces and suspended heaters.

My wife and I stopped at the Hog's Breath for Happy Hour after seeing the selections available on the outdoor menu marquee. We were extremely satisfied with our selections, both in taste and portions. We tried the Cheddar Potatoes, BBQ Pork Sliders (2), and the Chicken Quesadilla. I ordered the Hog's Breath Pale Ale and my wife tried a Stella... More

This place was a surprise tucked away down an alley. It's very welcoming. We had the calamari and sliders appetizers. The sliders were good, the calamari we sent back. We also had berry and pear cobbler for dessert which was good. We did not order a meal but the menu looked good. I would try this place again for a... More

We weren't sure that the restaurant would live up to the hype but the food was excellent. My husband, 5 kids and I went for dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. We sat outside which was very pleasant. Nice patio away from the crazy of downtown Carmel. We would definitely recommend Hog's Breath!!

Charming outdoor patio, nice staff but---playing some sort of hip hop music that didn't match the ambience and was irritating. The taco salad was mediocre at best. To be fair, I saw other plates going by that did look tasty.

The service was good and the food was just ok. Obviously all tourist goes there because Clint Eastwood owns it. If the food was much better , it would be perfect
