Mutt Lynchs – Newport Beach – February 2022 – 47 years – Anniversary


For over four decades, Mutt Lynch’s has made a name for itself as Newport Beach’s iconic beach bar and restaurant. Owned by Gail and Dan Lynch, the couple named Mutt Lynch’s after Dan’s father, Emmett Lynch, who served in the Army in WWI and was affectionately given the nickname ‘Mutt’ Lynch. The original location opened on Balboa Peninsula next to the Fun Zone, but on the evening of Easter Sunday in 1982, it burned down in a fire that started in the above hotel. Later that year, the restaurant reopened in its current location, steps away from the sand on the bustling Newport Beach Boardwalk. Mutt Lynch’s is open 365 days a year, offering over 200 menu items and 40 beers on tap.

Mutt Lynch’s, Newport Beach’s award-winning beach bar, celebrates 45 years in business in 2020. Founded by Gail and Dan Lynch in 1975, the iconic beach bar has been a family-owned business for over four decades. As the beloved establishment heads into its 45th year in business, the family unveils big plans for the future of Mutt Lynch’s.
