“Great spot for a drink and some live music.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

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 come through here.

“Breakfast, dinner, drinks -whatever -GREAT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This is information from a local, not these people on here who have visited places in Laguna ONCE. Love, love, love their breakfasts -eggs benedict -mouth watering, but you will have to ask for more sause on the side... I always do & it is no problem. Their burgers -HELLO -delicious! And please try their Asian chicken wings if they still have them -baked in sweet/sour sause with sesame seeds -OMG GOOD!!

“Lots of atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

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.

“Romance by the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

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. This is mine and my husbands favorite spot.
