Lazy Dog Cafe Restaurant Review

: Lazy Dog Café graciously fills a niche in the OC restaurant scene: casual yet fine family dining, and at reasonable prices. This location is a rather long walk away from The Honda Center, making it a destination to park and eat on game night --- if you can find a parking spot in the shopping center. The spacious interior features rustic woods and a full bar with several plasma screens and an enthusiastic sporting crowd. While the bar is a good place to grab a strong cocktail, craft beer lovers will dig the venue's list of exclusive in-house brews specially created by OC's Bayhawk Ale and LA's Golden Road Brewing. Chef Gabriel Caliendo has created an eclectic menu full of American, Italian, Asian and other globally-inspired dishes. First, order the spicy calamari for the entire table, or share an order of the palate-opening Hawaiian ahi poke. The entrée list includes everything from chili fries and oven-baked pizzas to wok platters and Prime steaks. At meal’s end, splurge on the “doggie bowl sundae,” a classic banana split served in a real porcelain dog bowl. Dog owners like this restaurant as canines are eagerly welcomed on the outdoor patio, where they'll find easy access to water bowls.
