Visit with my sister who lives in Laguna Niguel and it’s one of her favorite places to go for food and drinks. In Dana Point harbor. My sister preferred to be seated in the bar area but has a restaurant area as well. Restaurant was...More

We stopped in with friends who are locals for a drink. We ended up also having the calamari and teriyaki beef tips with rice. I had a mai tai special and they all had drinks. Food was tasty. Seas were frolicking out in the ocean....More

Attracted by the harbor view, we tried W&S. the food was mediocre, the service was just as poor. Won't go back. .

Definitely would recommend sitting in the bar area if you will eat inside because the views are better than the dining room and you can seat yourself. Great fish fry! Garlic bread was good as well. The ice cream sandwich is a must have as...More

I know it's a big statement but we've tried mai tais wherever we can find them and always come back to the same conclusion that W&S has the best.

Lunch on a Saturday, steak and seafood restaurant on waters edge. Friendly efficient wait staff, good quality food, amazing harbour view. Looked busy in the evenings. Cookie and ice cream dessert is absolutely huge, feeds two easily. Had both steak and seafood both very nice.

Spectacular setting watching the boats go out and come back to harbor. Prices reflective of this high rent location. Service is friendly and brisk but the food is the last reason to dine here. Uninspired and ordinary.

Go for the mai tais stay for the view! Great local location right on the water ~ fabulous Happy Hour mai tais. Great nachos, appetizers and a fun place to watch football

Sorry such a late answer but here goes anyway. Yes it can get loud inside and out. But that will depend on what time you go also. It's a big restaurant so it there's a lot of folks inside and everyone is talking. If your... More
