The White House is a venerable tavern/restaurant that has been on the PCH in Laguna Beach forever. It definitely has an old feeling to it, and I wouldn't call it atmosphere, except in a negative sense. I'm sure that the only reason that it is able to survive is that it must own the building or have a grandfathered lease... More

Stopped by here after spending time at Corona Del Mar. Had the New York strip and it was delicious. My wife had the salmon which was also delicious. Also shared a large helping of squid (calamari) with my wife. Been coming here for years and the place has never disappoints.

I've been to the White House many times though always for breakfast or brunch. I always seem to order the Eggs Benedict because they are simply that good. I compare the same dish prepared elsewhere against those prepared here. The hollandaise is outstanding, whipped and light, with just the right about of yolk, butter and lemon. They make excellent Bloody... More

White House burger was great and filling, the price is what youd expect for a restuarant at the beach. Service was great.

John our server was good and knowledgeable about the menu. I had a salmon cake sandwich that was delicious. My husband had a breakfast scramble which he enjoyed also. The reviews I read about this place say it's dark inside but the food is good. Those are accurate statements. The decor could use some sprucing up. But overall a nice... More

Friendly service and delicious food. I had the half waffle and egg. Waffle was delicious as was the syrup they provided. Egg was cooked just right as well. Looked like a place where the locals come for breakfast which is a good thing for me

We went since it is listed as oldest/longest running restaurant in Laguna - and while it showed it's age, it was decent. Pretty homey place, good for a burger or some comfort food. Service was good.
