I ate dinner there before seeing Pageant of the Masters. The salmon was the best I ever tasted! So was the cauliflower! And the potatoes were good, too. I sat at the bar, because the restaurant was too busy. The bartenders gave amazing service. I...More

We like going to Laguna Beach, but hate the tourist crowds. We went to the Lumberyard and discovered a great place that mostly seems overlooked by tourists. The crowd seemed like locals and the place is large and spacious. Where over restaurants are filling in...More

Dropped in for a casual lunch, and this place delivered. Basic sandwich, burger salad type of lunch. Service was pretty good, food was tasty, portions were generous. Have not had diner there, but lunch was reasonably priced. We would return.

We had a good lunch here, with a friendly efficient server, and a great view of the street. We like the outside seating areas, but it was chilly and windy, so we stayed inside. The bar is huge, and the decor is sort of homey...More

Description
In 1912, at the bend of Forest Avenue, 23 year old Joe Jahraus opened the Laguna Lumber Company, he and his father(cigar maker, first postmaster and real estate agent) built the beautiful French Normandy building that is here today.
Prior to the lumberyard opening, building supplies needed to be dragged in by mule or floated in on the tides, and therefore, Laguna Beach had less than three hundred permanent residences. After the lumberyard opened, the area began to grow at unprecedented rates, transforming it from a tent town into a thriving city.
Laguna Lumber operated for seventy three years, sixty two of them in this location and its' architecture, influenced by Joe's tour abroad in World War I, is one of the most significant influences on the town's aesthetic. Half timbers, mud walls and shingled roofs grace many of the downtown storefronts and homes throughout the city because of this landmark.
Today, 384 Forest is home to Lumberyard - a contemporary American restaurant.
