This place is located in the heart of Laguna Beach, right across the street. There is outdoor seating, booths or the bar to sit at. The food is amazing! The fried chicken with gravy over a biscuit and served with corn is a must do!

Menu is pretty standard and offers something for most. Service good. Walked in and was seated promptly by friendly staff. Prices on main course moderate.

No ocean view. I believe Las Brisas, on the north side of the main beach, has ocean view. We didn't eat there so I can't comment on the restaurant.
