We stopped here for lunch, choosing it above other restaruants in the area because of its location adjacent to the beach. Service was pretty bad -- we had to search for a server (who apologized), and our Asian chicken salads, when they did arrive, were mediocre at best. Very pricey for what's offered.

I had the chowder to start and it was super. Then had the burger which was perfect. Nothing fancy here but it has a nice local feel to it. It is right on main beach and close to all the main shopping. It has indoor seating or outside beach view.

Food was ok. Service was marginal. Had to remind waitress 3 times for water. Had fish n chips which were lightly battered, somewhat of an odd texture but ok. Presentation is 50% of the meal and they fall way short here. Best aspect is the back patio overlooking the beach. Too many other good places to eat in Laguna even... More

Fascinating to read the history of the statue out the front of a man who for 33 years made this piece of Laguna Beach his home and greeted everyone with a big wave So much so the Council made him the official greeter for Laguna. The restaurant is named after him We had a nice lunch. There's great views from... More

Went for early lunch due to rain however sun popped out and we were able to sit out. Lovely club sandwich and Laguna omelette both really good washed down with a reasonably priced pinot noir. Worth visiting but not fancy.

I was excited to be able to try this restaurant while in town today. Was seated out back over looking the Pacific and white sandy beaches. Sat there for nearly 20 minutes and the servers never came by. Definitely disappointed.

Great breakfast place! I had the pancakes and my husband had the eggs Benedict which he enjoyed. Service was very good and attentive. They offer free postcards so I grabbed a couple and sent them to my oldest daughter who just moved out with her fiancé and baby and our other 2 daughters back at home. We sat outside by... More

The location drew us here as you can look out to sea but the food was low quality served at high prices. We had chowder which hardly had any fish in it and a burger with hard bread and tasteless fries. The waitress also took ages to bring our change, obviously hoping we'd leave it all as a tip. Avoid!

I was really excited about having a burger by the beach but found the food to be just ok. My friend had clam chowder which was New England style. That soup should have been rich and creamy, instead it was watery and thin. My burger was just ok. Not bad, but not wonderful. The Bloody Mary was not so great... More

I've eaten here many times before and always liked the food. However, this time our waiter was a little slow. We were given our menus but had to wait about 15 minutes before our waiter took our order. He apologized for the wait and not sure what happened, but there were only about 3 customers at the time.

Thank Arnold T
