Lazy Dog offers pretty good food and a variety of it. If you sit on the patio, you need to like dogs because they are proudly present and, of course, snarl at each other. But on my recent meal there, the service was almost non-existent. Maybe short of staff that day? Didn't look like it. We had to seek out... More

We had dinner here Sunday night. I got the dim sum appetizer. 2 different kinda of potstickers. One chicken and the other shrimp. The sauce was delicious. I got a blue cheese burger which was cooked perfectly. The Caesar was a little heavy on the dressing. My husband ordered the lamb stroganoff. It was really tasty. The manager was very... More

We have gone to lazy dog (we call it the dead dog) several times. I am not crazy about going to a mall to eat. However, they do a good job and we have found the service a highlight. Comparing it to other similar restaurants in area it is the best. We also have done a few family event type... More

Nice casual atmosphere. Great to relax and chat with friends. The food was good but the restroom was dirty.

Stopped in yet again on another So Cal trip. The food is always good, and I love the interior design of this restaurant with its open beam massive timber construction. I had the grilled mahi salad. The romaine spears are lightly grilled, topped with an excellent dressing, and the mahi mahi was perfectly grilled and served on the side as... More

When my friend recommended that we meet for dinner at the Lazy Dog I thought another low end chain. I was happily impressed with my meal.

This restaurant is part of a chain and is at the Cerritos Mall. They have an outside patio for those who bring their dogs. The menu is big- in particular, their Maggie's Snake River Salad is tasty - they don't skimp on the goat cheese, cranberries, and bacon. Service has always been good, even during the lunch crowd

We took a break from shopping and stopped in to rest and have a bite. Their Happy Hour special was very inviting with several apps at great prices. We tried the Spicy Buffalo Nuggets and the Chicken Lettuce wraps. Just the right amount for three to share. We finished off with the Homemade Apple Cobbler with vanilla ice cream. Wow!... More

Great family restaurant whether you eat inside or outside with your 4 legged friend, the people are so friendly. Food is good and you get large portions, but sometimes it gets very loud in there. Especially with the holiday shoppers and during football season it is hard to hear your table mates. Our grandkids love it so we go with... More
