Since its opening in Spring 2021, Mutt’s Eastbluff has quickly become a Newport Beach hotspot loved by locals for its welcoming atmosphere, larger-than-life Schooners of beer, and eclectic-yet-approachable American cuisine. Now, the Eastbluff eatery gives locals something to celebrate every night of the week with Taco & Trivia Tuesday and a duo of daily happy hours.
As residents of Eastbluff themselves, husband-and-wife owners Alex and Meghan Murray created Mutt’s to serve as a central gathering place for their community, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a family-friendly, convivial atmosphere. With the introduction of weekly events and nightly specials, the couple continues to build upon the community excitement they’ve created.
Each week, Mutt’s will offer the following Taco Tuesday specials from 5 p.m. – close:
Street Tacos – $3.50
Estrella Jalisco Beer – $3 bottle or $15 for a bucket of 6
Draft Modelo & Pacifico – 16oz for $6
Mutt’s Margarita – $8
Then, beginning at 7 p.m., the restaurant atmosphere transforms into a lively Trivia Tuesday Night. Each week, guests of all ages are welcome to compete and put their knowledge to the test for a chance to win one of three gift card prizes: 1st Place ($150), 2nd Place ($100), and 3rd Place ($75). Reservations for Trivia Night are highly recommended and can us made by calling 949.719.0635.
In addition to its Tuesday night activities, Mutt’s offers a duo of daily happy hours. Every day, guests can enjoy Happy Hour specials from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. and again from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Happy Hour specials include $3 off draft beer, wine, and cocktails, as well as half off select pizzas and shareable appetizers like Calamari, Mucho Nachos, and Cheese Balls.
“Our sister restaurant Mutt Lynch’s has seen incredible success with Trivia Night; we wanted to recreate that energy and vibe here in Eastbluff,” comments Alex Murray. “Our goal with Mutt’s has always been to create a place that feels like home, not just to us, but to our friends, neighbors, and the entire community.”
Since its opening, Mutt’s has consistently expanded its entertainment offerings to embrace the community. With multiple big screens inside and out, the Eastbluff eatery is the perfect place to catch professional sporting events from the NFL, NHL, and NBA, as well as collegiate-level football games, including those within the PAC 12 Network.
The Murrays have plans to expand the brand with additional locations in California in 2022. 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. Its sister location, the iconic beach bar Mutt Lynch’s, is currently undergoing minor renovations and will re-open at the end of the month.
Mutt’s is located in the Eastbluff Village Center (2531 Eastbluff Dr, Newport Beach, CA 92660) and is open 365 days a year from Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. – midnight and Saturday – Sunday from 8 a.m. For more information, visit mutt-usa.com and connect with Mutt’s on Instagram at @muttseastbluff.
