I loved this place a lot and would definitely recommend this to anyone whose looking out for a great restaurant/bar... A place recommended by a fellow Yelp Elite and I am really glad he did point me to this place... The waiters here are really helpful and amicable, always ready to help you out with the menu and make suggestions that you might enjoy... This place is somewhat like BJs, Applebees, but according to me way more lively with great food and drink options... The food and cocktails here are really great and quite unique... They have a quite I had an Irish Mule, Grilled Garlic Flatbread and BBQ Ranch Bacon Cheese Burger with Cajun Fries... All of these were recommendations of the waiter and were just fantastic... The mule was really well made and outstanding... The flatbread is a great appetizer with a really tasty side of marinara sauce... This is quite a huge plate in itself and would be great to be had on the table when you are here in a group... The burger had a unique flavor to it and was just apt as an entree... The cajun fries were okish, my taste buds were already in heaven with the flatbread and the burger that I didnt feel much about the fries... This is quite a huge place, with indoor as well outdoor seating available... There is a parking structure near the place which has dedicated parking for Lazy Dog... I would definitely bring this place as a recommendation to all the group events with my friends from now on...
No stars for this restaurant. In fact they should be shamed. Dont kid yourself if you think they are dog friendly and want your dog(s) there. You can not call ahead if you are wanting to have a night out and including your dog(s) to enjoy a night out with you. Instead, management will allow booking large parties on the patio, which we noticed had more seats and tables than they needed. One large party was playing games and pass the guess whats in the diaper for a baby shower. Earlier in the day, we called ahead to see if we needed to make a reservation, the girl on the other end said no, just come on down. Once we arrived around 515, we were told there were no available tables. Shortly after we arrived, a couple with 4 retired Army Service dogs (dogs who served our country well) could not get a table either for at least a hour and half. These large parties had empty seats and left the rest of us who had traveled distances were left with nothing. Shame on this company for touting to be dog friendly patio, food bowls our pets may never enjoy, and shame on them for not allowing the pet owners to make reservations. False advertisement as I see it. Discrimination at its finest.
This is a great family restaurant and the food is excellent. We werent sure how kid friendly it would be, but if you ask for dog collars for the children, they will bring you fruit loops and shoestring licorice. The kids stay busy making a collar out of it while waiting for their food. They have the standard crayons and coloring sheets as well. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing, and the service was good. I received the wrong entrée, and it was promptly corrected. The portions were good, the food was delicious, and the prices were more reasonable than I expected. Im looking forward to many more visits. Update: on our second visit, the food was good, not great, and the server was absolutely terrible. We left our empty drink glasses at the edge of the table, but she was hanging out with other servers, and walked right by us five times before I finally asked for refills. Then she just added room temperature tea to my existing ice, which resulted in a barely cooler than room temperature tea. It was also rather bitter. Im knocking two stars off, and it will be a long time before we give Lazy Dog another chance.

This one just opened 3 weeks ago in Cupertino. They are finally getting around to revitalizing the areas around Vallco Fashion Park. Its about time. Its a chain restaurant but its not bad. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The food has plenty of flavor and lots of surprising combinations. Prices arent too bad either. Recommended: Butter Cakes - every bit as good as people say but definitely a shared dessert. Loaded Baked Potato Hush Puppies - very good but watch out for the Tapatio Crema. Its spicy, and I like that! Stay away from the Ahi Tuna Burger. Id ordered it rare based on a reviewer who ordered it medium and it had been overdone. Rare didnt save it. The tuna wasnt the best grade in my opinion. The sauces and slaw couldnt save it. Kinda blah!
Good place to lounge for a few drinks and shareable apps at their outdoor seating area. Wouldnt recommend their main plates. Recommended Small Plates: Street corn wheels, fried hush puppies, sweet potato tarter tots, umami fries (not on their menu but essentially the cost of their fries). The Beer battered fish was oily. The only highlight to this dish was their creamy apple cider coleslaw. The Fried chicken dinner was disappointing. The fried chicken was oily and dry, lacked any flavor. The mashed potato was just average, not enough gravy. The sauteed bacon and spinach was a salt bomb. The bacon tasted like it was salted and even more salt was added in. Couldnt even touch it again after the first bite. The highlight of the dish was the roasted sweet corn wheel.
We had a bad experience, staff and food. My wife sent an email to the general manager to advise them of our experience. To their credit, the GM replied, apologized, and asked us to give the restaurant another try on the house. Normally I would have declined but we decided to go ahead and give them another go. The GM was there when we went back, he and the server were very pleasant and accommodating as we were seated. But things went down hill again. Mostly due to kitchen issues. The meal took a long time, the food was not what we ordered, some of it was cold, and when we were ready to leave, we waited for 20 minutes to get the check and settle up. Sorry guys, we wont be giving it a third shot.
A GREAT bring your dog to the restaurant, the Hop Head Sampler had a LAME LAME LAME selection of Lagunitas IPA and one other bulk ipa I forgot the name..... and then one Lazy Dog ... I had to order something on the beer list but did not see the variety like .. Tap Lands... I was kind of expecting more.. They have a Dog Menu and the food is good. Staff arrives with several different humans and all seems quite organized. -1 stars for the poor sampler type -1 for the floor they do not clean after a dog comes along.. we sat at a table and at our feet was leftover rice from the folks before us. clean the table AND the floor... (or bring your dog...that has its shots?)
My go-to place. Everything ive ordered has been really good especially the bison meatloaf. I literally have dreams about it. The pad thai noodles- comical. Basically top ramen with thai sauce. Asian-peartinis are a fave ❤ Bathrooms: clean. I especially love that the water is warm as soon as you place your hand under the faucet. Update: went there for the bison burger last night. Took my taste buds 60 seconds to really cling on to that bison flavor. At first it tasted like a regular burger but then i tasted my boyfriends cheeseburger and could distinguish the difference. The red potato mash melts in your mouth. Over all it was good. Id order again.
