Great lunch menu and gluten free!

We love the Lazy Dog because of their large and eclectic menu - there is something for everyone here and we bring newbies and out of towners without reservation. I love their pesto chicken and hummus salad - I order it frequently. They use to burn my chicken - which is a no no - but the last two... read more

Food was delicious - had their signature grilled cheese sandwich and chicken tortilla soup. It really hit the spot. Sat inside and it was a bit noisy so we got table along the wall so it wasn't so bad. It was pretty crowded for Friday lunch but we got in without waiting. Service was great. Our waiter Miguel was very... More

The food was great, the staff was amazing, and the location is ideal. I had the hummus sampler. It was the best.

Bad service and food. Do not order the turkey burger was not cooked long enough and i felt ill from eating not even half. Odd because our food took so long and there were very few people at the time we were seated,

My family has been to the Lazy Dog Cafe several times. Our kids always find something they like to eat and my wife and I have tried many different items and have always been happy. The lettuce wraps are a good start!

We really enjoyed our meal and the service was great too. It's right next to the mall, so even a cocktail with a friend would be nice too. Give it a try because you won't be disappointed.

Always enjoyable, good service, good food, great happy hour menu and movie tickets are available, so this makes it a convenient location for dinner and a show.

A convenient mid level restaurant with decent food and good service. Menu is extensive and works for big eaters as well as salads goers. Right next to movie theater or a walk through the Thousand Oaks Mall. (You can also get decent food in the mall food court.) Mid level pricing as well.

I enjoy this restaurant very much. The food is always great and the location is wonderful being close to the Muvico and the mall. Only complaint is it can be quite noisy.

Love the layed back atmosphere and the fact we can bring our Australian Shepherd to the patio! They even offer water and meals for them! The food is good, very wide variety of foods on their menu.
