Lots of posters of Doris Day and her old films on the TV. Why? Because she part owns the place. A really nice place for a chat and a drink. Alan behind the bar is a really nice guy and we had a wonderful evening. We originally went to AW Shucks but they told us there was a 40 minute... More

As skeptical as we are about eating in “the hotel’s restaurant” since we were staying at the Cypress, we checked out the menu and TA ratings and went for it. We had a beautiful CA night in August and both had great fish dinners under the stars. Our waitress was awesome, and it was not crowded at all. Being the... More

The menu selection was good and portions were large. We sat outside in the courtyard with our two dogs and we were cold. There were heaters for other tables, but ours only had a pyramid shaped torch, which didn't emit much heat. It was a Wednesday night, so some of the waitstaff might have been in training, but it took... More

We had lunch on the patio and it was perfect. We are dog lovers so we did not mind the dogs- as a matter of fact we really enjoyed seeing a few dogs. The patio is well appointed with heaters and it is quite romantic. The food and service were great~ I had the muscles and beet salad with a... More

Love Terry's Lounge. Asked a local where we could grab a cocktail and light appetizer. Recommended this establishment. So happy they mentioned this place. Grabbed a libation and enjoyed incredible cod tacos!!! OMG. So delicious. The bar is stunning! Lots of Doris Day memorabilia. The bar had a TV and was playing a Doris Day movie. I happen to love...

A wonderful experience with your dog and other dog owners. The food is great and the ambience is better than most who offer dining with dogs!

An outdoor fireplace, a comfy divan, a nice coffee table, good scotch, good wine, and a light dinner after a trip to the beach with the dogs. You can each outside on a very nice patio, or you can eat inside.

We stayed in Monterey but took a day trip to Carmel. Accordingly, we did not stay at the Cypress Inn, but did choose to eat there (Terry's Lounge). The hotel is co-owned by Doris Day and her business partner Dennis LeVett. Fortunately, it has retained its 1920's ambience. It was a beautiful day, and we chose to eat outside. My... More

Sadly we didn't stay at this hotel but we spent most of our time there😊 Food good, Terry's bar great ambience, great bar staff, friendly & informative. Great beers & cocktails. Not cheap but worth it. As dog- botherers a great place to hang out. Sadly dogs not allowed In bar😕
