The Usual

Mutt's has been there forever and will remain to be there forever. It can get really crowded and service can be surly depending on the mood or hangover of your server. Good for large groups and better for large schooners of beer. Food is solid bar food all the way around. Beer and wine only so... read more

Airy saloon with lots of big screen TVs and a good vibe. We can't vouch for the food, but it looked good. Other spots were tighter and without the beach air coming through.

A true fixture on the Peninsula. Start your day there early with schooners of beer and breakfast, then watch the day waste away until you're ready to order lunch and or dinner. Get there early to grab a table, otherwise you will be standing around chicken hawkin' for people to leave.

Had an enjoyable lunch at Mutt Lynch's, tasty food, and great big beers! The atmosphere is really good, and the service too! Next to the beach at Newport Beach!

Looks like there is an eternal line to get in this place but oh what fun. Everyone is friendly and there to have a great time. The schooners are enormous, the food is fabulous and the servers are quick! What more could you ask for in a place that is packed to the gills with beach-goers and shenanigans!

We locals call it "Mutt's" and we visit as often as we can. We usually drive but on our last visit we took Uber since parking can be difficult to find. It can be crowded and loud but we typically sit on the bench overlooking the boardwalk with a view of the ocean. We try to get there in time... More

Went here for lunch. Was really busy but we were served very quickly. Food was excellent. Was a bit loud but that's the kind of bar it is. Would visit again.

A must when visiting the beach. A place for great food, people watching and drinks. It is a dive type bar that is right on the boardwalk. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner if your looking for a fun place. I had the barbque chicken salad and my had the hot pastrami sandwich, both were really good.

Fun atmosphere! Great place to grab a bite to eat and people watch (both inside and out). Our server was really friendly as was the manager. Really fun place to spend a few hours.
