We got in very late to the hotel due to a flight cancellation. We were hungry and went to the bar to get something to eat. Drinks were great and so nice to be able to eat so close to closing.

Just off the bar in Terry's Lounge and up a short flight of stairs is the Day Room, apparently named for Terry Day, the deceased son of Doris Day. We had a wonderful family meal there, very private, and separate from the more lively bar scene on the main floor. The sand dabs I had there were fantastic! All of... More

Friendly professional service in a lovely courtyard. (Inside dining also available) The sand dabs were just delicious, the burger was just average. Salads looked wonderful, will try them next. Very enjoyable lunch.

Terry's Lounge is a bar and cafe located in the venerable Cypress Inn in Carmel-by-the-Sea. If you're already staying at the Cypress Inn, it's a no-brainer to stop in at Terry's for a drink. The food is outstanding no matter what you try on the menu. If you have dogs, you may take them throughout the hotel as long as... More

We've been here several times. Each time the staff and food exceed expectations. The menu caters to any taste and they are happy to accommodate all special requests. On our last visit two of the people with us were gluten and dairy free. The server was prepared with suggestions on how to accommmodate, and accommodate they did! And there was... More

This Loung is one of the best places in Carmel to go for a drink. You will meet interesting old people as well as some youngsters. BarTenders are good and will take good care of you. Menu is deep enough and the hotel where this lounge is at offers some other interesting rooms / areas. My recommendation, go there for... More

We had a late lunch in mid-December and ate on the patio because we had our dog with us (this restaurant is particularly dog friendly in a village that is very dog friendly). Between us, my wife and I had the soup of the day ($7), a Caesar Salad ($9), and a B.L.T. ($12), all very ordinary, together with a... More

Very nice experience. I was able to bring my pup with me and the waiter immediately brought water bowl. Many other dogs were here as well. Carmel is very canine friendly! The food was delicious, nice wine selection, and company was fun!

We found ourselves in Carmel for Thanksgiving on short notice with no reservations. They were able to fit us in and gave us an excellent meal! My wife said it was maybe the best turkey she has ever had. In all honesty, the service was only fair and we got seated in sort of an upstairs off-shoot of a room... More

After being seated a few times we finally were able to order. Loved the environs and food in spite of the somewhat disorganized and frantic server. Invested in a cab to and fro from PG with high expectations. It took two hours to be seated order ..had to ask for a menu and the candle to be lit. Disappointing to... More
