Laid back and fun

Was visiting Newport Beach, walked on the beach with friends and stopped in Mutts to give it a whirl. It's very laid back and I wasn't, quite frankly, sure what to expect. No fear. Food was very tasty. I had lunch fare, but my friend had breakfast, which she loved.

While visiting friends in Costa Mesa, we always enjoy (ed) visiting Mutts at Newport Beach. On this visit we went twice. Both times most of the booths on the lower level had RESERVED signs on them. Apparently locals can call in and hold tables. At a bar on the beach? Those tables stayed empty the entire time we sat in... More

I think their breakfasts are intended for the hangover crowd..... one of which you can get the night before at the same place. The food is ok, not great. Cooked by people with hangovers no doubt. The music you have to listen to is nauseating, unless you are a 20-something emo depressed head case....and they don't keep the volume at... More

I was really looking forward to breakfast, which apparently is only served til 11:30am, so I was super disappointed when i couldn't get my omelette. We got a couple Bloody Mary's which were excellent. Ultimately I got the blackened Mahi Mahi tacos which were also great. Service was genuine and attentive.

Loud and over run with young people, who have not leaned to handle alcohol yet. On the bright side it is right by the beach parking lot, so off weekend hours, it is not too bad.

Driving on the west coast looking for something exciting, and we spied a poster for the Thursday lunch special. Three yummy chicken filled enchiladas with pintos and rice. Julie, our bartender, directed us to other sites in the area. Beer was cold and service was superb!

We enjoyed Mutt Lynch's morning noon and night This very busy bar is buzzing with atmosphere and is well located right on the beach The menu is expansive and packed with authentic American food. The portions are generous so try a schooner to go with your order!

This place may be a little wild for some. They have utilized the space well by layering their areas for eating. If you're not the friendly type you may not care for the long shared tables and bars located throughout the restaurant/bar. It looks a little rough but the staff is super friendly and ready to help. They have a... More

Lucky to get a window seat looking out over the street frontage to the beach beyond. Great place to watch the passers by, even glimpses of the surfers paddling out, sunset over the ocean, rowdy crowd the day we were there but fun atmosphere, good cheap food prompt friendly service.
