This is a must if you are hungry, want a friendly atmosphere and a view of the ocean; Mutt Lynch's is the place in Newport Beach. We had dinner here earlier in the week and noticed that breakfast was also served. I had the Mutt's French Toast sandwich while Luann had the Florentine Benedict. Both were excellent and there was...

My friend who lives in Irvine has been telling about Mutt Lynch's for some time now, and so when I came down for an OC jet-away, he suggested we hit it up on game day Sunday. Sure enough, including the fact that it's right at the beach, it was the PRIMO place to spend game day....even as a Seahawks fan... More

Our group stopped in for a few drinks before dinner, and to watch the first half of game 7. The loaded nachos were excellent to share between 5 of us.

I took some colleges here a couple of nights ago for dinner and the World Series. We had a great time. The Chicken Wings and Pizza are the best. When you order the large beer be ready for "The Swimming Pool Of Beer" It is a fun place to hang out at the beach.

Awesome surfside pub right off the beach in Newport. Great food. Great seafood. Large craft beers. There was a line waiting to get in on a Tuesday night. Nothing special, just a great casual atmosphere where people like to hang out, eat and have a beer with good friends after a day in the sun. I try to eat here... More

Great place for a nice lunch. The Cobb salad and PO boy shrimp wrap are my favorite!! Nice view of the beach and huge glasses for beer! A good staple on the peninsula.

We went to this place because it was highly recommended. We went in rather late with a group of us. The table was not cleaned, the womans restroom was out of order (no lights), and the staff just wanted to go home. Not the most friendly place.

My friend who lives in the area took me in here for dinner this week. The place is the definition of a dive bar. Its relatively clean, but the tables are written on and scratched, the floors are dirty, and the bench seats are ripped. Doesn't stop people from coming in though! Food was pretty good. Drinks are huge, 32... More

This place is one of my favorite old Haunts. I was so happy to see that it was still there after all these years away. My friend and I spent many a Sunday here drinking schooners and eating pizza. On my last visit to OC we went back and was so happy to see not much had changed. Good Pizza... More
