We went to Patio on Lamont for lunch yesterday--dark, tropical themed decor with an indoor-outdoor feel with lush views all around. Nice menu for "brunch" on any weekday because it serves breakfast and lunch.--plenty to choose from. We had a Patio Melt--ham & cheese and an albacore tuna melt--both were a cut above the usual. The fries had spicy ketchup... More

Tasty food, they have happy hours for alcohol so you can get a drink for like $6. Very kind and professional service. It's also very close to the beach. You should definitely visit this place

Fun dog friendly place, attentive to canine and us human folk. Food option creative and tasty. Would come again. Made reservation the same morning as we ate brunch. Was seated right away among the line already there before and after. Would recommend it.

Love the charm and ambience! Homestyle food with a farm to house gourmet taste! Near the beach so after dinner a nice stroll in the sand was in order! Every thing is good here from appetizers to desserts!! Lovely staff,thank you for the excellent service.

The best burger I have ever had, was at The Patio! Love the ambiance with the beautiful green wall covered in plants. It took a while to get used to the always changing winelist, but now it's fun to try something new every time. Bartenders are very helpful letting you taste severeal wines before you decide. Reading the winelist makes... More

I enjoyed the sunny open environment of this restaurant. The food selection is eclectic but I like that it includes hybrid Mexican food.

I am always on the lookout for great places to eat with my dog. I had high hopes for this place based on the reviews and I really wanted to like it. Had a couple dishes I remember one being a flatbread. Totally forgettable food and I spent too much.

I guess it was just me but I am not used to eating with dogs. It seems to be a common event in outdoor venues. That is ok but when the wait staff pets every dog and then serves the meal I have a little problem. The portions were meager and expensive- paid 8 dollars for two shrimp. Food was... More
