Lazy Dog Restaurant is a great place for lunch, we stopped in the middle of our Christmas shopping day for lunch on a Sunday. We were lucky enough to make it before the major lunch rush, which seemed very hectic and crazy. The service seemed standard, but nothing exceptional. They had an expansive menu, with a lot to choose from.... More

nice casual place. I enjoy the lamb shank. they are dog friendly on the patio. large beer selection and full bar with craft cocktails yet moderate prices. it's a good dinner place next door to Carmike/Muvieco movie theater in (outside) the Oaks Mall, Thousand Oaks.

Good selection of expected American gastropub fare with some diverse specials. My wife liked the fish tacos. I enjoyed Thai Chicken and vegetables over brown rice. Craft beer offering looked interesting for our next visit. You really can bring your dog to the patio if they are leashed and well behaved. Moderate prices and friendly servers.

After visiting Lazy Dog on numerous occasions I can confidently say that their food never disappoints. There are several stand-out dishes, like their sticky ribs with umami fries and the mahi with cauliflower mash. The warm butter cake is also incredible. For the most part everything on their menu is very good. The environment, however, is quite noisy and can... More

Very popular and very busy. Good variety of food on the menu. Butt the menu needs shortening. Some portions are enormous.

We've been going to The Lazy Dog for years either for dinner with family or meeting friends for Happy Hour. The HH menu had changed so much throughout the years that the last couple of years we started going to other establishments. We recently met some friends there for HH and was pleasantly surprised at the new items that had... More

The Lazy Dog was really fun. It is aptly named as it has "homecooked" style food. If you are too Lazy to cook at home, go here! The fetticini Alfredo was excellent. Excellent flavor and not too heavey on the cream. The chicken was delicious and tender. I had the ceasar salad and it was perfect. It was just what... More

I have eaten at Lazy Dog several times and enjoy the menu variety. Sometimes for dinner I'll just order an appetizer or two. The trout with grilled vegetables is very good.
