This classic beach snack bar/diner is a must-stop for anyone driving the coast between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. Parking is very limited, so be prepared to wait, or drop off your party and have them order food to go. Great views from the deck seating of Crystal Cove state park. Very good burgers, BLT is different and full of... More

We took our kids here after playing at Heisler park. It isn't cheap, but everything tasted good, was fresh and you can't beat the view.

We are a local, but this is a must on your list if you are visiting. The view is amazing, burgers are tasty, and the shakes are 👍👍👍. If you like peanut butter, banana, chocolate ask for the "monkey shake" ...not on the menu.

We arrived when they opened on a spectacular day. The egg sandwich with home fries was delicious. While my wife had the skinny eggs, cottage cheese and fruit. We sat on the deck, looked at the beautiful view and, if you are cold, the heat lamps are there just in case. A great take.

Their date shakes and sandwiches are local favorites. It's all outdoor, picnic table seating (with great views). Very casual, as the name implies. Food is good, but in our opinion, not up to the standard of their prices. Very limited parking, and it can get very busy.

The shake shack is adjacent to Crystal Cove State Park and sells sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, fries and milk shakes. There is normally a line-up so I would suggest you go during off hours or send one person to stand in line with all the orders. The parking is very limited so the shake shack is best visited as part... More

My Husband and I stopped there for a Shake. Had always seen it on Pacific Coast Highway, but this was our first time to stop. I had the Berries Shake and my husband had the Date Shake. We both enjoyed them a lot. They also serve food there. Nice to sit and be able to look out onto the Pacific... More

Excellent selection of shakes + some healthy sandwich options in addition to regular burger/fries fare. The line can be long at peak times, but if you can get a table on the side patio, you'll have a nice view of the ocean.

Order at the window and enjoy your food on their deck on the cliff that overlooks the ocean. Seared Ahi burger was tasty and small but good selection of beers to enjoy with the sweeping views over Crystal Cove. Small parking lot can be a little congested - even when we visited on a Tuesday.

We visited this shake and burger hut overlooking the ocean for lunch. The views are amazing from atop the Cliffs of Laguna Beach overlooking the Pacific. The only reason I can't give a five is because parking is at a minimum with only a few spots out front. The menu is simple diner style with hamburgers, grilled sandwiches, sides, and... More
