The Jack O Neill lounge, bar on the left and seating on the right with beach views

January 2, 2019 through mid-February - Aquarius Restaurant and Jack O’Neill Lounge will be closed for renovations and we are very excited to reopen as Jack O’Neill Restaurant & Lounge.

During this time, a daily breakfast buffet for purchase will be available in from 7am11am daily. All other outlets will not be affected.


Kick back and soak up the beach vibe at Jack O'Neill Lounge, Dream Inn's laid-back ode to our Santa Cruz neighbor, the legendary surfer, inventor and marine advocate Jack O'Neill. With surf boards suspended from the ceiling and personal memorabilia and vintage photos lining the walls, this come-as-you-are lounge is all about relaxing and reconnecting over comfort food faves and signature cocktails like the Mai Oh Mai Tai and CoCoMo.

Don't miss Happy Hour from 3 - 5 pm daily, featuring $4 bottled beers and $5 house wine by the glass. Of course no trip to Jack O'Neill Lounge is complete without sampling the all-day fare, including California mussels steamed in Santa Cruz Ale Works beer, fish tacos with chipotle remoulade and frozen Nutella cheesecake. For the little ones, the kids menu can't miss with burgers, quesadillas, chicken fingers and house-made mac 'n cheese.
