Enjoyed fish tacos and enchiladas here. Being from Texas, they were not quite as good as we were used to, but still a good meal. Our waiter kindly gave us a complimentary desert, which was much appreciated.

We love Mexican food, so this was our second Mexican restaurant of our stay. It was very good as far as the food, but the servers could have been more attentive. For instance, our server took our salsa bowl away to get more salsa and then forgot. Drink refills were slow to come as was the check. The staff spent most of their time out of sight and I would recommend that they circulate in the dining room more often.

As for the food, we ordered the tableside prepared guacamole and it was quite good. The regular chips and salsa are good too. I had the shrimp enchiladas with green sauce and they were excellent. My husband had the barbacoa and found it to be just so so.

I think this place has potential. The food is good. The location has some views of the water and ample parking. The staff can up their game by circulating more.

This is a relatively new place and is quickly becoming a favorite of the locals.

We have dined and many of the Mexican eateries in Big Bear and have had meals that ran from good to toxic. Laguna Grill is tops for us.

The food is delicious as are the drinks. The Margaritas are real and cheap.
It is located in the area where the old IHOP used to be.
Don't miss it.

I judge a Mexican meal by the salsa served with chips. Laguna's is flavorful and chunky which is what i prefer. Came by here for an early lunch (11:30) and by the time we left the place was almost full. Had the quesadilla plain, wife had tacos al pastor. Unassuming place in corner of a parking lot with some views of lake.Service was reasonable as were the prices.

First I have to say they have the best flour tortillas served on the side. Heavy and chewy. The Carne Asado burrito was perfect with tender meat. The seafood broth was unparalleled in recent memory. Lots of seafood but not overwhelmed with spices. The staff was Johnny on the spot, helpful and wonderful. Everything was prepared fresh to order. Go to this restaurant !!!!!!
