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

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!

Before going to the Shake Shake on Mother's Day weekend, we hiked around Crystal Cove Beach State Park. We enjoyed the beach and the historical homes located below the restaurant. The restaurant itself is a drive in with a small parking area infront. On the side there is limited seating at some tables outside. We ordered 2 shakes, one Oreo... More

After 40 years, still have to say, the shakes are quenching and the view breathtaking. Ruby's burgers are a nice fit for an old favorite haunt.

The kids loved the shakes. Good Ruby's food. My kids also enjoyed the chicken salad sandwich. Location just up the hill from Crystal Cove Beach Cottages.
