“Had a doggone good time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

There are dog-friendly places and then there is Terry's Lounge! What a unique place that treats dogs like royalty and welcomes four-legged friends (and tripods too!). This is in the Lounge, not the restaurant. Can't wait to return with Lucy!

“Sunday morning, patio, live lovely music, popovers--can't be beat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Listening to Andrea Gurtin sing and play ever so lovely and gentle music while having popovers, eggs, great coffee----all while having a favorite dog under foot can hardly be beat!!!

I have always loved this place for their quality and yesterday was affirmation of that experience. The setting is magnificent, the service is good---in fact, they even appear to like their customers! The place loves well mannered dogs and alas, mine was the only table without one.

It is a perfect situation in so many ways.

“Hidden gem...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Dinner at Terry's was a highlight of a recent visit to Carmel by the Sea. It is located inside the Cypress Inn - which apparently was a hang-out for movie stars back in the day.

The food was excellent, the service was top-notch, and the atmosphere was awesome. In the entrance area there was a piano and singer combo, and that set the mood for everyone there. EVERYONE looked like they were having a great time.

This is a must-visit restaurant if in the Carmel by the Sea area.

“Always a great place to eat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

As a frequent visitor to Carmel, we often come to the Cypress Inn to stay and eat. The dinner was very nice with well prepared scallops, salmon and salads.
The real plus here on Friday is the live entertainment with Debbie Davis and Gannady. He scored several of Clint Eastwood's movies.

“foursquare special tricksters”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Why even run an ad on Foursquare if you are going to make the customer feel awkward for redeeming? Get it together and stop being rude.
