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 snuggling in a provided cozy blanket next to one of our natural gas fire pits. The patio offers a casual setting so you can feel free to stop in for a quick Bloody Mary or spend the day eating, drinking and listening to waves crash on the shore below.

There are no reservations for our patio seating. Enjoy self-service food and beverages from our upstairs or downstairs bar. The full menu is always available on the patio but must be ordered from the upstairs bar. If you are interested in full service dining, we are happy to accommodate you in one of our upstairs dining rooms.

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 the day 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 under the blankets they provide near their fire pits. 5 star experience for us. I was even entered in their cutest dog contest.... which I'm gonna rock!!!"
