We visited this restaurant because it is right on the boardwalk with a nice view. I had fish tacos and they were delicious, The service was good, the server was friendly, However, it was filthy. There were receipts, napkins, papers, etc. all over the floor. And the washrooms were also filthy.

Loved the atmosphere. Menu has a great variety. A sampler, Nachos. Fish tacos and pizza all caught my eye. We were sitting at the window seats and had a great view of the bypassers but not so great of the beach as the view to it was blocked by the cars parked there. Service was fast and efficient. A great... More

Mutt's is a beach bar and restaurant. Three of us had excellent breakfasts from the four page breakfast menu. I had Top O' the Mornin'. Pat had Huevos Rancheros. Heather had the Longboarder. All involved eggs and some kind of meat. The coffee was good so the breakfast was a success. The portions are large, so go hungry. And we... More

This place is wonderful for people watching and having beers with friends! Typically we drop our stuff off at the rental and go straight here. Everyone knows just to report to Mutts when they get to town!

It was an out of ordinary rainy day in Southern California, but us mid-westerners didn't know any better. On a recommendation from a couple of people we came to Mutt Lynches. It lived up to the hype. If you like beer at all, a Schooner is a must. Its cold beer, and stays cold in the heavy glass. This place... More

Mutt Lynch's never disappoints. I was surprised to see they removed the pool tables however that is not a deal breaker. If you want a seat at the window, good people watching, I suggest you get there early!

The food was pretty average, nothing that I haven't had in Denver, service was just okay, the location was across the street from the ocean. We had to ask for our check twice and there were only 6 other tables. I can't imagine what it would be like if it was full. This will be just a walk by next... More

After visiting the piers, my friend and I went for a beer to Mutt and even that the music was so loud and the place packed with twenty something years old people- we ordered tacos and they were extraordinary and well served. Order the carnitas tacos and the shrimp ones.
