We visited this shake and burger hut overlooking the ocean for lunch. The views are amazing from atop the Cliffs of Laguna Beach overlooking the Pacific. The only reason I can't give a five is because parking is at a minimum with only a few spots out front. The menu is simple diner style with hamburgers, grilled sandwiches, sides, and... More

My friend and I had lunch here yesterday. I had the burger with Swiss cheese and sweet potato fries. It was the freshest burger hands down. Fresh bun, crispy lettuce, juicy ripe tomato and their burger sauce was da bomb. The sweet potato fries were hot and crispy. My friend from Austin loved the BLT with extra bacon. She was... More

We went here today with kids- shakes were sensational. Stunning view over the ocean. Super fast service. Shakes aren't overly cheap at $5.45. I had a hot fudge sundae- also great for- $3.99. Great beach for swimming too just down the stairs.

Half the time that I drive by and think about stopping there are no spaces and I have to continue on. When I have been there recently, the chili cheese dogs and drinks have not been up to the taste standard that I remember when this place was an Orange Julius. Still, its a nice spot with a view of...

A picture is worth 1000 words spend the day at Crystal Cove Beach parking is $15 finish with a $5 dollar shake and this view. Parking is limited so it's better to walk to the Shake shack and then onto your car. Best deal anyway - a nice getaway and thousands cheaper and more convenient than Hawaii.

This is iconic and a must see for any traveler out of the area. Scenic views and made even better with a shake in your hand!

You couldn't get a better view for a MUCH more expensive stop. You need to try a date shake - once. Kids love this place.

I decided to try this place based upon reviews from TripAdvisor. It did not disappoint. We did have to wait about 10 minutes to get a parking spot but it was well worth the wait. The service was quick and the view was fantastic. The shakes were also delicious-didn't eat there but noticed the burgers looked delicious as well. I... More
