Five stars for the great staff. Three stars for decent, upgraded bar nibbles. Average - 4. From NY we didn't know Thousand Oaks rolls up its sidewalks (as they were) by 10pm. We hadn't really eaten in almost 16 hours and I needed a drink Lazy Dog was the only place open and we got there right before they closed... More

We love Lazy Dog for Sunday morning Brunch. The menu has expanded and the pizza with over easy eggs is yummy as is the breakfast club with a nice slice of watermelon. My husband loves the Hawaii. Fried Rice with eggs. Our server Lauren is a real gem and so attentive. We come frequently and she has our drinks ready... More

We dropped in here one Thursday evening. Sat outside under the heaters - nice spot. The food is pretty good. I had a stout with added mint syrup to drink - unusual but really good.

Kassandrah and Tori, these two servers provided such great service! Tori served us dinner and Kassandrah served us lunch the next day. It's always nice to have friendly caring service to go along with a good meal. The Ahi jar appetizer was excellent and my wife like the turkey meat balls. Lazy Dog has a pleasant atmosphere. Nice location.

We always go here because you get discounts on movie tickets, and their happy hour is substantially better than Bogart's and the quality of the food is better. The best deal is always half a sandwich and soup or salad. The best sandwich is the turkey club and the best soup is the chicken tortilla. Tip: Ask for the lava... More

Stop in for lunch today and had the best experience with Cassandra she knows her menu and is very thoughtful offering ideas to assist me with my low carb diet! I saw her assisting a elderly guest in the patio who had a difficulty with food in her throat! This waitress was refreshing and very attentive!
