Best shakes ever!!!!

My husband and I so enjoyed the experience of this little roadside restaurant. You don't see from the road that once you pull into the parking lot and then sit down, that you can see the ocean while you eat. And the shakes were the best Ive ever had!

Wonderful Carmel shake. Excellent view. We will go back the next time we visit. Loved the cabins on the beach. Hope to try the Burger next time.

Been coming here for 20 years, before it was Ruby's. It never disappoints. i have to give Ruby's credit for always hiring such great people at this location. There are lines of people backing to PCH waiting for their delicious food. Surprisingly, the cheerful, professional service and fresh quality of food combined with the incredible view make it all worth... More

This place has pretty much Ruby's full menu. The food is good, and the view is perfect. Parking is limited, many people line up to park, but if you go 1900' north on PCH and turn right on Los Trancos, you can park at the state park. It's a bit pricey, but this is Newport Beach. Then walk under the... More

We spend a little over a week around Laguna Beach and stopped a couple times at the Shake Shack. We only had shakes during our visit but 'just; having a shake from here is an amazing treat! The chocolate, banana and peanut butter was my personal favorite. We were fortunate to stop in when the place wasn't very busy so... More

My son and I stopped here during lunch time while we were on the beach. There was no place to sit to eat so we each got a shake and stood to eat in the shade. Aside from having nowhere to sit, the shakes were fantastic. Nice and thick. Perfect for a June sunny day. We will be back another... More

This place was on my bucket list and now I can check it off. We had burgers and shakes there. We weren't very hungry and asked if we could get a single patty (two patty burgers is what the menu offers) and were told that we could but it would cost the same as a double. We said we only... More

My friend from around this place brought me here for a brunch. The view is beautiful, overlooking the ocean. We both ordered combo breakfasts. I ordered the pancake combo with scrambled eggs and bacon. With tip and a cup of ice coffee, the total was $15, which was definitely worth it especially because the portions were huge!

If your driving on Pacific Coast near Crystal Cove State Beach/Park then you should stop here. Food is good. I usually get the turkey burger but had the grilled cheese with bacon this past Sunday and it was so good. Can't beat the view because it's overlooking the ocean. Parking is tight. There is usually a line of cars waiting... More
