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

My wife and I took a weekend trip to the Newport Beach area, and used friends and Trip Advisor to find some great places. After our drive in from Vegas, we went straight to Mutt Lynch's for lunch. Easy to find and in a great spot (unless you want to talk about parking!), Mutt's looks like a fun place right... More

Went for a beer and got the huge glass. Really fun to sit at the open windows and people watch. Had the chicken sliders which were ok, but I suggest this place more for atmosphere and a laid back vibe. I'd return

Awesome location on the beach, pizza is great, and they always have a solid tap selection. I do miss the pool tables, but their televisions more than make up for their absence. I always sit at the bar so I am not sure what the table service is like. Service at the bar is always good, bartenders are friendly. Fun... More

They have decent beer selection and at one time had some great Raspberry Cider! I think they've since stopped carrying it but if they ever bring it back i'll definitely return. Food is a bit above average for bar food but nothing to write home about.
