Very good local Restaurant 1 block from Ocean.

We were able to park just a few blocks away, then have Lunch at the White House Restaurant. We then walked across the street to the Main Beach in Laguna. This is a very nice area to be walking also.

I have been here several times and always had good service and food, for best value go in the happy hour. Lively bar adjoins the restaurant with good music, there is outdoor seating but it is next to a busy road

we stopped in without a reservation for dinner and sat outside to people watch. Very friendly staff and prompt service. We ordered the New York steak and it was perfectly cooked with great side dishes of salad and fries. Definitely not a chichi spot to dine but that is why we chose it. Great spot for families, singles and couple... More

Our absolute favorite is the warm welcoming restaurant called The Whitehouse. It has been around since 1918!. The owners, family and staff are truly like our familia. They catered our wedding and to this day it is the only place we eat at night.It is right on PCH in the middle of downtown Laguna. They have a dance floor and... More

Wonderful staff and delicious, not expensive breakfast. Loved by the locals. I'd definitely return when I stay at Laugna.

My wife and I decided to take a short road trip down PCH for lunch in Laguna Beach. We have not been downtown LB in maybe five or six years and so decided on The White House Restaurant as we've been there before. I enjoyed an ale while waiting for my meal. We sat street side and had a great... More

We had an excellent meal at the White House restaurant in Laguna Beach last Saturday night. My wife had the salmon special and I had the chili lime chicken with avocado and both entrees were excellent. The only problem was that it took at least 45 minutes between our salad and our entrée. Our server, Sarah, who was great, kept... More

Met with some friends for Saturday lunch. We arrived at 1 pm thinking most of the lunch crowd would be gone and that was true. Got seated right away on the patio which is the best place - the inside is too dark and noisy. Service was excellent - food, only ok. We all opted for a brunch item -... More

Definitely a locals favorite. Almost everyone who came in was greeted by name. The waitress was very professional. The breakfast was very decent traditional food, although I think I would order the Benedict with the sauce on the side. I can still feel the calories!!! The potatoes were just average, but a lot of Tv's to watch the game on... More
