Fun and reasonably priced

We went to the White House with a large group and were pleasantly surprised by the music, amount of seating and the prices for drinks. We were there at night so it is converted to mainly a dance club. Lot's of fun.

Standard breakfast fare in a hole-in-the-wall environment right on PCH near main beach. The Wyland omelet, recommended by the waitress, was a great recommendation. OJ tasted like it was fresh-squeezed. But get your coffee someplace else unless you like diner coffee.

This place isn't what it used to be. However, the service was good. The crowd wasn't moves away from the typical highbrow Laguna scene and is a bit more inland. Food and beverage were average across the board, there is nothing particularly noteworthy. Definitely come to the White House after 930p for some live music. Some great DJs or bands... More

I have been enjoying the White House for many years, usually for lunch. It has a great location and a very friendly staff. Food is good and very reasonably priced. It is a great luch retaurant and it has an early bird dinner. Music later in the night for the young folks.

When visiting Laguna Beach, California make sure to stop at the Beach House restaurant. This is a good spot for couples or familys. You can sit and look out over the ocean. At sunset the view is amazing. The food is very good, but my favorite is the Lobster Tail. They have Sunset dinner specials also. The service is great.... More

Was looking for a romantic dinner. Food is good, but not what I was looking for. May go back another time, but probably not.

If you get too hot then sit outside and people watch and have drinks and... More
