Shake Shack is just up the steps from the beach with seating overlooking the surf serving as a destination for us during our early morning walks from Newport Coast . My favorite menu item is a beef burger. Not possible when with my daughters who insist I go for a veggie burger . Do have a shake and if someone... More

Great views, good service, good food , decent value, with a very clean kitchen on general view. This is an iconic stop on the Pacific highway and as such it's great fun and worth stopping off for. As is a short walk into the historic quarter near by. This place can get busy with cars queuing to get into the... More

I think that this place is more about nostalgia than food or value. Prices are very high and the food, frankly, is just average. I will not return.

The kids like it. Last time it was $18 for three shakes. They were good but I thought that was a bit pricey for milk and a straw.

I was nice and relaxing (and exactly what we needed after seeing the doctored for a chemo consult. It's kinda hard to explain but my cousin who is having a hard time eating, ate her burger, fries and a sundae. I... More

What an amazing view while you eat your burger or have your morning coffee. We like to walk here in the morning and give ourselves a little treat.

I will not drive up Pacific Coast Highway again without stopping for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack with this breathtaking view! Casual, romantic, fun.

Located just outside of Laguna Beach (to the north) is an un-assuming beach hut that houses the "Shake Shack". We had heard of this for a long time, so when we were heading by, we stopped in. Go for the shakes, but skip the food, which is quite average and not very good. That would not stop me from going,... More

Stopped by the Shake Shake last night for a shake and sunset! Tough to get parking, you may have to wait, but it is worth it. Didn't eat the main food, but it looks good! My son had a shake, and my husband the vanilla soft serve. I had tastes of both. To sit outside and overlook Crystal Cove and... More

I can't tell you how many times I've come here, but it's a lot. Where else can you get great burgers, sandwiches, fries and shakes and eat the food on either their very small patio or take down to Crystal Cove State Beach (if it's crowded, which it usually is, go for take-out). The only bad part about the shake... More
