A picture is worth 1000 words spend the day at Crystal Cove Beach parking is $15 finish with a $5 dollar shake and this view. Parking is limited so it's better to walk to the Shake shack and then onto your car. Best deal anyway - a nice getaway and thousands cheaper and more convenient than Hawaii.

You couldn't get a better view for a MUCH more expensive stop. You need to try a date shake - once. Kids love this place.

I decided to try this place based upon reviews from TripAdvisor. It did not disappoint. We did have to wait about 10 minutes to get a parking spot but it was well worth the wait. The service was quick and the view was fantastic. The shakes were also delicious-didn't eat there but noticed the burgers looked delicious as well. I... More

Was advised to go to the Shack to sample the views whilst enjoying great food and drinks. Didn't eat there, but did try the shakes and the views over Crystal Cove are stunning. Come for breakfast or to enjoy the golden sunset. You won't be disappointed

Thought it was just shakes and with June gloom that was the last thing we needed. Instead enjoyed BLT with avocado and 2 kids meals for $5. Quaint take out containers and fries were still hot by time we got back to Marriott. Fully appreciated real quality ketchup packs and silverware. Dinners were delicious for $22 total. Restaurant had heat... More

Every time we drove by the shake shack there would be a line of cars waiting for a parking place so we decided to give it a try and I'm glad we did. Each one of us ordered a different shake and tried each other. We had a strawberry, a black cherry, a pineapple and a peanut butter shake. We... More

Right on the side of the road. Its convenient, quick, and you have a great view from their outdoor deck. Surprisingly crowded sometimes, but go ahead and squeeze in. Breakfast and lunch are served. The food is pretty standard burgers, fries, and shakes. You get about what you would expect.
