Took the family to Terry's after the 17 mile drive while visiting the area. The food was fresh and the service and dining experience very good. The pics and memorabilia from Dorris Day is fun to check out. Looks like a great place to have a drink and spend an evening as well.

Terry's Lounge is a wonderful edition to The Cypress Inn. The locals love coming here, and I can see why. The menu has an incredible selection of classic, hand- crafted cocktails, great wines, and scrumptious, locally-sourced food offerings. We sat in the heated patio area and first ordered wine with artisan cheeses and nuts. We then decided to split the... More

My husband & I just returned from staying at The cypress Inn in Carmel. Our last night there (a Friday) we had dinner at Terry's Lounge, the hotel's restaurant. We were seated in the beautiful outdoor courtyard. I had already seen that they were really touting their burger as the best in Carmel. So, we both ordered it. Wow, the... More

This is the quintessential Carmel hotel and restaurant, with locally sourced ingredients and extremely attentive staff. Ms. Day's exquisite taste and appreciation of her public is evident throughout the Inn. I adore coming here on a regular basis, being a resident, with my beloved dog who also enjoys this like no other establishment. He is welcomed as warmly as myself... More

The Cypress Inn is our go-to accommodation in Carmel because dogs are so welcome. Terry's Lounge is part of the property, which means we don't have to walk all over town looking for some place that will let our dog accompany us for dinner. The food was nothing to write home about, but perfectly acceptable and the setting was comfortable... More
