The legend of Carmel. Formerly owned by Clint Eastwood, he still owns the building-who knows when he will stop by? Kept intact to keep the charm that is the cozy Carmel of yesteryear.

Dirty Harry is no longer here, but the food is still very good!

Clint Eastwood has sold the property but it still remains a place to get an excellent Dirty Harry Burger, tasty salad or classic sandwich. Lots of beer on tap and a wide selection of local wines. Whether you eat outside in the courtyard or inside the food is good and the surroundings are full of... read more

Well, of course, we had to go there for a glass of wine and a beer, even though Clint is no longer the proprietor. We sat inside the bar area and waited a long time to be served. Eventually, my husband had to go to the bar to get our drinks. It was not busy. It seems a little worn... More

We came on a cold, dreary evening. I got the chili con carne and enjoyed it very much. We didn't like the house wine but enjoyed another red blend. The wait staff were terrific and attentive and we got to relax by a warm fire.

We went here for dinner while we walking around town. Picked this place because of the Eastwood connection. Was disappointed in the food and service. The place is cramped and tight . There are probably better options in this town!!

Clint Eastwood has sold the property but it still remains a place to get an excellent Dirty Harry Burger, tasty salad or classic sandwich. Lots of beer on tap and a wide selection of local wines. Whether you eat outside in the courtyard or inside the food is good and the surroundings are full of Carmel fun.

We went here because Clint Eastwood used to own it and we were very disappointed in the quality of the food, I think everything came out of a bag or can. Later some locals told us every since he sold it, it has went downhill and would never send anyone there anymore...

We had a great waiter, who explained some facts about the place and Clint, and the food was really nice. It wasn't so busy but the setting was relaxing and very nice. Good beer and a very sweet little pub where you can have a beer afterwards - the barman that night was not particularly friendly though...
