I've been going to this place for years. And not just every now and then. This place has NEVER DISAPPOINTED! Not only is it a local fav, it's located on one of the best parts of PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). Walk across the street to the beach, walk up and down both sides of the street for boutiques, art galleries, surf shops, fun stores. A true LAGUNA BEACH EXPERIENCE!!

The staff and bar have been there forever, and that says a lot for the management and owners of the restaurant. The food is consistently excellent. I've never experienced a bad meal, or bad service. That's almost impossible to find these days. The drinks are great, no light pours here. The staff is always welcoming and friendly. And the kitchen gets the food out quick.

More about the food. Portions are very large, salad is always fresh. The hollandaise is hands down the freshest and home made. No canned stuff here. The eggs are perfectly poached,not hard boiled. Pricing is very reasonable, considering where the restaurant is located.

It can be somewhat noisy, although that strictly depends on what day and what time of day you're there. If the LAKERS are on, you can bet the energy is electric. Come in the evening, or on Sunday morning, it's wonderful. If you love people watching, sit outside on their patio. You might think it's a little noisy with the cars constantly going by, but it's worth the experience.

I've brought many a friend, family, and business associate here over the years, and have never been unhappy or disappointed. Thank you to everyone who works so hard to make these experiences so great.

We had a nice lunch while on a day trip to Laguna Beach while staying in Anaheim. The food was great! It was a little noisy until one family left. (I think it was some sort of gathering)
An issue arose with one meal but was graciously taken care of by the wait staff.

We very much enjoyed our meals
Big portions, reasonable prices and the service was the best we had during our week long stay at Disney land.
Kids menu was also priced well which was added plus as most places we'd eaten at the kids meals were quite expensive

Every town has a place where the locals go. In Laguna's case it is the White House - the oldest restaurant in Orange County - where the same members of the bar staff have worked continuously for 32 years and the food is always good and reasonably priced.

We came here for drinks and food at the bar. We ended up sticking around for a few hours. They had a DJ that came in at night, which was fun. They also said they have live music on other nights throughout the week. The food was delicious; I had ribs and a beer. Well worth it!
