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

This is a great little spot right off Pacific Coast Hwy and has been around along time. We just starting stopping for the view and coffee. For the first time ordered a breakfast, cinnamon toast combo. Very good, generous and delicious. Will be back for the view and to try something else. Not alot of parking though. Thanks for keeping...

Great burgers and shakes with ample tables to accommodate the 15 or so parking spots. Best to eat here at off peak hours due to parking. Excellent early breakfast for early riser beachcombers. No indoor seating!

Went here with my daughter and a couple of friends. We'd been on the beach for the afternoon, and climbed the stairs to the Shake Shack for a treat before we left. We only got shakes/malts, no food. The price was quite decent, the shakes were served up quickly, and tasted great! We all got different kinds, and they were... More

This was my first visit after wanting to go for years. It is always very busy with a very small parking lot. The Shake Shack is actually famous and is featured on many travel guides. I ordered my all-time favorite Vanilla Malt and was very pleased with the taste and quality. I did not have time to try some of... More

It's not exactly right on the beach but it is right on PCH. It is really just a shack. You order at the window and take a seat on the benches over looking the beach below or snag a table with just as good views. Some people were walking up from the beach. Many others, including us, drove. The parking... More

Their sandwiches, hamburgers, fries, etc. are good but their shakes are the best ... and oh so many flavors to choose from. Once you get your food sit out on the patio and watch the ocean waves!
