Seal Cove Patio
Our dog-friendly restaurant patio offers full service dining, warm firepits, and dramatic ocean views.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean is our heated outdoor Seal Cove Patio, where we welcome all well-behaved dogs and their owners. Watch whales swim by and seals sunbathe below while eating, drinking and listening to waves crash on the shore below.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Seal Cove Patio has changed from a drop-in, self-service lounge to a full-service dining area with servers at your table to take food and drink orders.
Reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-ins accepted based on availability. Since our patio fills up quickly, we recommend making reservations 5 days in advance.
The temperature on the Coastside is generally cool, so dress warmly. Should we encounter bad weather on the day of your reservation, there may not be a table inside since those will be reserved in advance. We recommend that you check the forecast a few days prior to your reservation and call us then to make any changes.
Feel free to bring your own blanket to our outdoor patio or we offer fleece blankets for sale for $15.
Our Seal Cove Patio overlooks the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and is a premier spot to watch the sun set into the horizon.
We have been featured in AAA’s VIA Magazine as one of 16 spots named Best Pet Destinations in the West. We are honored by this accolade and happy to live up to that reputation by providing water bowls, doggie beds, and even a Dog Food Menu. Our Doggie Menu features items such as grilled hot dogs, mini burger patties, and even a skirt steak for those really good dogs. We take pride in our love for dogs and strive to provide an incomparable setting for you to spend time with your pooch.
“Great experience! The staff was great, had a lot of fun…. even had food for me on their “dog menu”. I got to eat scrambled eggs and my owners had a great fish dish that they shared with me and a steak sandwich. I would recommend this place to all my friends and for them to bring their owners. We got to cuddle near their fire pits. 5 star experience for us. I was even entered in their cutest dog contest…. which I’m gonna rock!!!”
