Happy!

This is a great place for "Happy Hour" gatherings with friends. The food and drink options are good and the service is matchless!

Easily found on coast Highway. Need reservations unless early. Great bar and bar scene, If that's what you want. Food very good with accent on good steaks. Parking in back is useful as street parking is difficult.

I love going to the Bungalow for Happy Hour with a friend or my husband. We enjoy the soup, the shrimp, the macaroni & cheese. The drink offering is really a great value (Martini's are the best) for the location and the free entertainment of people watching. It can get pretty loud in the bar area so if you're looking...

Nice ambiance, good service, the food…not so much. Ordered the 16 oz Australian lobster tail. Big mistake. It was covered with smoked paprika. Completely destroyed the taste of the lobster. The petite filet was tasty and cooked as ordered.

Visiting family who took us to dinner here. Recommend outdoor seating next to fireplace with warm glow of serene lighting. Great atmosphere for leisurely talking and sharing. Extremely attentive service from Dane. Many food options all prepared fresh. Save room for warm chocolate soufflé

If you are looking for a casual meal....with the guys....great choice! The food is good. The ambience is NOT good! It resembles a Sports Bar with a restaurant attached. Not romantic or quiet or quaint....two big screen TVS destroy any ambience or quiet dinner expectations. Poor choice for date nite....fine for a good meal

We had a group of 30. Server was GREAT and very efficient. Appetizers were excellent, huge cold shrimp, excellent fried calamari, ahi tuna tartar. and amazing crab cakes. The artichokes were not that exciting. Drinks, entree's and desserts came out very quickly even though the restaurant looked very busy. They have indoor and outdoor dining, atmosphere was very relaxing and... More

Seriously one of the top 2 steaks I have had in the last 25 years. It came out perfectly cooked and it was the size of a catcher's mitt! Easily twice the size of a steak I would normally eat. I ate it all! As a side the asparagus was terrific -again perfectly cooked.

Bunglalow is a great neighborhood restaurant, with consistently great food and terrific service. Its one of those places where you feel "everybody knows your name." The food is American fare, with great salads and entrees. The servers and bartenders will go out of their way to learn your name and your preferences, so you feel welcomed every time.
