Great outdoor music

This is a nice place for anyone in the 20-50 year old range to take in some music and dance outside. Great vibe with a lot of regular locals and tourists mixing together.

We only stopped in for a beer, but the waitress was very friendly. The atmosphere was nice but kind of noisy especially for it being Tuesday night. Not a good place to actually hold a conversation.

Didn't eat here but did stop by for cocktails and listened to the live music. The people watching was a hoot. The night we were there it was a Beatle's cover band....lots of dancing and singing along. And they're open pretty late unlike most things in the village.

Carlsbad never fails to deliver but this was a particularly good place. Terrific food, live music, great atmosphere, and on par service. Try the steak enchiladas!!

We were staying at Omni La Costa Resort and our shuttle driver recommended Carlsbad Village when we asked about dancing. We ventured down at night and cruised a few streets following bright lights and crowds. We happened upon Coyote Bar & Grill and decided to stay. Casual place but great dance music! The DJ played a variety of dance hits... More

Food was very good and service from Nick was excellent. Great place to have a drink and watch the wild card games! Just came in from Maryland/Illinois and really enjoy having a drink at this local watering hole.

We like to come to this restaurant every time we travel to Carlsbad. We really enjoy the food, the service, the outdoor seating and local talent that performs! We've had lunch and dinner and have enjoyed every visit! After eating we like to browse the shops!
