Mutt Lynch’s to Open Sister Concept


In celebration of Mutt Lynch’s 45 years in business, the iconic beach bar in Newport Beach unveils its sister concept, Mutt’s, set to open in Eastbluff Village Center in Newport Beach this winter.

Mutt’s will serve as a central gathering place for the community, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a family-friendly, convivial atmosphere. The menu will focus on approachable American eclectic dishes and will feature beloved menu favorites from Mutt Lynch’s like its Pterodactyl Wings and made-to-order pizzas - while introducing family dinner specials. The new concept also upgrades its beverage program with a full liquor license focusing a craft cocktail menu highlighting spirits from artisan distilleries across the United States.

“Right now, people are craving community. We’re all just mutts, looking to find our pack,” comments Mutt's co-owner Meghan Murray. “The progression of our brand is designed to follow our loyal Mutt Lynch’s customers, many of whom have grown up to raise families of their own. We created Mutt’s for them and their families - it’s a place where the community can come together, feel at home, and find their pack. ”

Mutt’s in Eastbluff is owned by husband-and-wife duo, Alex and Meghan Murray. Meghan is the daughter of Mutt Lynch's founders, Gail and Dan Lynch. At 2675 square feet, the restaurant and bar offers plenty of indoor seating and a spacious patio. A celebration of eclectic Americana, the concept will carry much of the same character and charm of Mutt Lynch’s, but through a refined, family-friendly environment.

Eclectic Americana decor, including repurposed retro furnishings and the brand’s signature year-round Christmas lights, visually conveys the brand’s celebratory catchphrase “It’s a Party and You’re Invited.” Mutt's walls will be adorned with Schooner sconces resembling the 32oz goblet that has become synonymous with the Mutt Lynch brand.

True to its ethos of celebrating small towns across the United States, Mutt’s is dedicated to supporting made-in-the-USA products including beers, wines, paper goods, and merchandise. Its flagship location and business model will serve as a prototype for all future locations.

As co-owner of Mutt’s and partner at Brillstein Entet Partners, one of the largest talent management and television production companies, Murray’s career has taken him throughout America. His travels throughout the country have created a roadmap on how to expand the brand.

“With Mutt’s, we want to continue to build upon the success and ethos of Mutt Lynch’s by celebrating what gives America character - its small towns and communities,” comments Alex Murray. “Mutt’s is a place where we can create memories with our children while reminiscing about and reveling in what makes our town great.

Beginning with our hometown in Newport Beach, each Mutt’s location will celebrate its respective community with distinct decor and menu items that reflect unique elements of the town and its history.”

Like its sister concept Mutt Lynch’s, will be open 365 days a year for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For more information, visit

Mutt’s is located in the Eastbluff Village Center at 2531 Eastbluff Drive in Newport Beach.
