It is proud to say you could walk into its establishment at any time of the day and always receive a welcome reflecting the wonderful, laid-back, Newport Beach attitude.

Mutt’s is committed to ensuring that only the best food and beverages are served, and is delighted to dedicate its menu to serving dishes it knows customers have expressed a deep love and appreciation for.

Mutt’s history and Americana focus is celebrated in its distinctive décor, but also within its desire to exist as a wholesome environment in which to create family memories.

At 2675 square feet, the venue offers plenty of indoor seating as well as a spacious patio. Designed by co-owner Meghan Murray, the character Mutt’s presents is a refined, family-friendly environment. Alongside the obligatory eclectic Americana adornments, Meghan’s design aesthetic also emphasizes repurposed retro furnishings, and includes the brand’s signature year-round Christmas fairy lights. Visually this conveys Mutt’s celebratory catchphrase “It’s a party and you’re invited.” Mutt’s other motto, “Find your pack”, ties in nicely with the design of the restaurant as a central gathering place where the community can come together, feel at home, and, yes, find their pack. This is a phrase that also rings true when the company is hiring, as it definitely looks for welcoming, energetic, and personable people, eager to help people feel at home in Mutt’s.

The company is hoping to expand the brand further still, and is currently actively looking for a second location in Southern California. Mutt’s is a place for creating memories with your children, reminiscing, and revelling in what makes the local community great. Beginning with its hometown in Newport Beach, each of Mutt’s locations are intended to celebrate the respective communities where they are sited, with distinct decor and unique menu items reflecting elements of the town and its history. The venue’s sister concept, Mutt Lynch’s, is located on the Newport Beach peninsula. It too is gearing up to expand, concentrating primarily on its bar programming, with a full liquor licence soon to be granted. This means there’s even more excuse to eat, drink, and be merry at Mutt’s, so what are you waiting for? Hurry on down, join in the fun, and while you’re there why not make a meal of it?
