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.

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.

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.

I know what you're thinking... Food at the beach always tastes better. To that, I say maybe. What I can tell you is, there is no better lineup of breakfast food than Mutt Lynch's. Beyond an amazing and eclectic variety is the quality and flavors these folks pack into every plate. Bar none, the best and worth the drive from... More

A great little dive-bar right on the Boardwalk. Nice cold beer, generous portions of food. We had schooners of beer and the calamari appetizer. Hand breaded - very tasty. Great place when you're coming off the beach.

Mutt's is a must visit when in Newport Beach. Especially if you've been out in the ocean. Something about the salt water and the sea breeze coupled with a schooner of beer brings complete relaxation and lowers the blood pressure. Food is really good too!
