I went here with friends that have been going for 38 years. Great menu selection, staff is awesome, and owner plays a ukulele for special occasions. A must go place in Carmel.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed. The food was well-executed and imaginative without being over the top. The skill of the wait staff made the experience all the better. I'd suggest making a reservation.

All of Carmel is super pet friendly but I don't think Flying Grill is. I could be wrong but the restaurant is pretty small and all enclosed.
