At Mutiny, we embrace the pirate lifestyle. No, we don’t actually burn and pillage coastal settlements in the colonial Caribbean, but our end goal is the same: to escape the norm, to do what we love, to be free. Your cliché pirate was always in search of buried treasure, and in a sense so are we, the “X” on our treasure map just happens to be delicious food, creative drinks and good times.

We have amazing scratch food created by trained chefs, inventive cocktails expertly crafted using exotic rum, and a selection of craft beers, both local and beyond; but that’s only half the story.

Mutiny is a place where you can cut lose, be yourself, and forget about all the stuff that makes life so tedious. Our staff is genuinely friendly, and every member of the crew comes in each day with the mission of making our guests happy. It’s our goal to be the greatest place to be, whether you’re here to work or play.

In short we want to be the “X” on YOUR treasure map!

Food and Service was great. We came with our family for brunch and at an earlier time frame. It was rather slow around the time of our reservation and started to pick up when we were finishing our meal. I would say the atmosphere is more for adults, less for children. So I think coming in earlier was smarter for us. I will say they took great care of us, made us feel very welcome as well.

Sauces are good, but too much of a liquor taste to their cream of crab soup. Most foods are spicy and it's chipotle ranch. No regular ranch AT ALL.

Food is good, but need more items that aren't spicy. Stomach is unable to tolerate some but my family LOVES it so, I endure.

Service was excellent. Food came out in an expedient, though appropriate cadence. Food was tasty-just not health conscious! Great music, great corner table. Like the TVs- not too huge to take over the meal but there in case you want to check the score to the game. Lively atmosphere not appropriate for a quiet intimate conversation.

Food is amazing! Flavorful and unique, with great spices. Love the fish tacos! Always get the key lime pie for dessert. It is smooth and creamy with a lime tanginess that hits the spot.

Always a fun time when we come to Mutiny. This time we brought a friend from out of town who was impressed with the jerk mahi mahi. I have to say, I really appreciate the rum selection (yes, I have the passport) but this time I decided to just go for the traditional mojito and it was well done. Not syrupy sweet (thank you!) and the right balance of mint and lime. We've been to both locations and while the Pasadena location is minutes from home, the small size makes getting a table challenging without a reservation so sometimes we drive all the way out to the second, larger location. Nevertheless, always a great visit no matter the location.

The ahi tuna tacos were out of this world! The poke bowl was excellent. I just wish the place was a little less noisy. It's hard to carry on a conversation.

Food and service is great. But you can't really talk to friends when live music is on because the place is really small. Maybe if they lower the volume of the speakers will be much better.

3 sets of friends getting together for drinks and apps. Happened to be the same night as the Reggae Party. We were able to reserve a high top with easy access, good view of the music and the bar. Service was good, even though the bar was busy.

We are regulars, so we knew we would be getting great service and have a good time. Only made reservations to ensure our spot given the festivities of the night.

The venue was significantly smaller than I anticipated. I am glad that many of the friends that I invited were no-shows. The food was good, the live entertainment was excellent (Orlando Phillips) and the service was good. We will return.

Staff was very friendly and efficient.
The only thing I would change is how the vents in the ceiling blow directly down on the table. We had to move and there wasn't much choice of tables without a vent over them. Not only were we cold ,it would blow in the food...not to healthy.
Menu was diverse and will try it again.

I have been to Mutiny way too many times to count. I feel at home when I am at Mutiny. During this visit I had Courtney L. as my server for the first time ever. She did an outstanding job. I had a party of 6 and she made sure our drinks were never low and made sure to check on us the right amount of times. If my visit was my first time going to Mutiny Courtney’s service would’ve been enough for me to come back and recommend it to everyone. During this visit I got the chicken wings which are the best wings of any establishment in the area. If you like your wings hot get the house-made Walk the Plank sauce, you won’t regret it.

The food has been consistently good here. My only problem with this visit was my waiter. He was so uninformed about the menu that he couldn’t answer the simplest of questions. He doesn’t eat salads he said. I ordered mussels to start and when they arrived there was no extra plate for the shells and no small fork to get them out. I asked if he was new and he said no. I later learned that he had been the bar back. I would definitely eat here again and pray I have a different server.

We received Mutiny’s Weekend Specials by email and decided to indulge on a few of them. My husband and I ordered a beer, and was told they just tapped out. Then I ordered the ahi tuna tacos, and they just ran out. Asked the server about the food specials, and was told none of it was ready. I ordered a hamburger and my husband ordered 6 piece wings, and my teenage son couldn’t decide on what to eat because nothing on the menu looked appeasing and he didn’t order any food at all! From my teenager who eats a lot, and for him not to eat....what?! The Happy Hour quiz game came and no weekend specials were ready. $80 bill and we left quite disappointed.

When my GPS couldn't find the place, we called and asked for directions. The receptionist told us, she didn't know their location either. She is new. We drove around and found it ( behind the Safeway). Upon entering our experience continued to go downhill. When you walk into an establishment and there is a line of patrons waiting to be seated and half the tables are dirty and need to be bused, that is a big indicator of a management/staff issue. My wife and our guests told me to be patient and nice. I should NOT have listened. The service, especially getting easy to make drinks (wine in a glass) took way too long. When I complained our waitress said she would try extra hard to get us served more promptly. I said thank you, and she replied "NOT A PROBLEM!" It was a problem that she completely failed to understand and solve. When the food arrived and it was of mediocre quality. We should have walked out, but that wouldn't be nice, would it? It is a shame because their other place was quaint, fun, and good. What are they thinking!
