The Dog is unpretentious and delivers good food and drink at good value. Limited menu but well prepared and very consistent-great date place before a movie.

It was our first and last visit to this restaurant. The only good thing is the patio seating, well heated, open, view on street and mall but better than totally enclosed PF Chang next door. The Pretzel Pork schnitzel is a dry thin slice of tasteless pork, covered with chunky dry pieces of tasteless starch. The sauce is bad too.... More

We arrived at 7:00 on Friday night and there was a line to get in. Luckily our friends had arrived early and secured a table. In spite of their over-flow crowd, the service was excellent and cheerful even though our server was on her second shift. All of our meals were of generous proportions and very good and very reasonably... More

Excellent food here. Went back a second time and it did not disappoint. Would recommend for hearty real meal, a change from all the other chains. Steak and garlic mash were delicious.

Between yelling to be heard and a twenty minute wait for a server the last 3 times, we just don't go here any more...

I just ate at the Lazy Dog Cafe in Torrance, CA. The service that I received was very good. But I think they must have changed their selections on the menu. I found that most things on their menu are kind of extravagant of what they have to offer. They had a fund raiser; this is the reason i decided... More

Just have to keep going back to try the many different and creative dishes. But go during Happy Hour and make it cheaper and easier

We have been going to Lazy Dog since they opened several years ago. I have tried at least half of the items on their menu and I have never been disappointed. I usually get the ginger soy salmon which comes with stir fried veges and brown rice. I have tried most of their salads including the chopped spinach, feta, chicken... More
