This restaurant has just OK food & SUPER loud music, but it's right across the street from the beach, so....yeah. It has that. We ordered the blackened mahi mahi tacos & the strawberry fields salad. The strawberries were yummy. The tacos were meh. Not a lot of flavor. The beans were blech but I was glad because I don't really... More

One of my favorite beach bars to hang out with friends. They have daily specials and food portions are large.

I discovered this place back in 1984 when I was a young man living in the area. Returning after 30 years and was not disappointed. There is not a better place to enjoy a cold beer and enjoy the view both inside and out of the bar in Newport Beach. I can only hope this place never changes it is... More

This is a typical Sothern California beach pub, but it also has a great brunch. Be prepared to wait on line, but it is worth it. Good bloody maries, and greasy food.

This is a fun, loud, crowded place that is perfect for a day at the beach. Mixed variety of people. Great view of ocean! Food is delish!

We tried to find good wings from california, but we find best in the world :) Mutt Lynch is nice place. Outside it looks like small local pub. Maybe music is too loud but i think it is good in that place. We tried those Mutt¨s wings with nuclear sauce and we love that! If you wanna big beer and... More

Every time I come home, this is one of my first stops. This place has been a favorite of mine for over 30 years. The best place to sit is by the window when they open the walls and you can see, hear, and smell the beach. Breakfast here is the best cure for a hang over.

My husband loves a place with great atmosphere and cold beer and Mutts fits the bill!! I've seen this place described as a dive bar and I must disagree. It has amazing character that is impossible to find at any chain restaurant. Food is delicious and you can't beat the view!! Probably not a place for small children unless it's... More

Mutt's is a great place to sit and enjoy a few drafts while waiting out a rain storm. It has that dank, old time beer joint charm. with a great selection of craft beer.
