Had a shake for lunch

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... read 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

WOW! Over 20 shake flavors to meet most every taste. The kids loved it. So casual with a great view. Plenty of food options if you're so inclined. Definitely the burgers, fries, & the club sandwiches. And definitely large enough portions. Reminded me of going to the old Dairy Queens and Foster Freezes when I was a kid. When you... More

Our group found this place while visiting the historic district of Crystal Cove State Park. It's up the hill on the cliff, above the historic homes. We only had shakes, but they were EXCELLENT, and not all that expensive. And the views are amazing. Highly recommended.

We visited this place on Valentines Day. Reservations are encouraged but if you arrive early, they can seat you in 30-40minutes. we arrived at 8am and without reservation, the line was already long. Still we only waited for 20 minutes. The view is amazing, the restaurant is just located in front the water. The food is excellent. We order the... More

Great shakes! Great view to go with it too. We took the stairs up from the beach and had lunch. We had hot dogs & grilled cheese for the kids, the adults had vegwichs. The food was ok - next time we will just go for the shakes!

There is an incredibly long line and wait.... but its worth it. It is a little pricey- but the burgers and shakes are worth it. The kids loved the shakes- there are a ton of flavors... something so everyone. Burgers are so good. Be prepared to wait awhile... but just enjoy the ocean breeze and spectacular view. We will come... More

Incredible view of the sea with the best (healthiest) burger I've had to date ~ Try the tuna burger, it consists of huge chunks of seared ahi tuna in wasabi mayo and greens worth $10
