Hog's Breath Inn, Carmel, CA

Hog's Breath Inn Restaurant Review

: Dim lighting, an alleyway entrance and multiple mounted animal heads give this Carmel haunt a tavern look and feel. Clint Eastwood --- actor, director and former Carmel mayor --- once owned Hog's Breath, but you probably won't run into him here anymore except in fond tribute. The restaurant's hearty cowboy fare will buck spirits up: the Dirty Harry dinner, for instance, consists of a New York strip steak with vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. Other menu highlights include local Castroville artichokes in a dip with spinach or in soup. Wash down another staple, Hog's baby-back pork ribs and sweet potato fries, with a glass of Hog's Breath's own proprietary house wine, or a Hog's Breath Pale Ale or Carmel wheat beer.
