Went on a busy weeknight in the summer and sat at the bar with my wife and daughters the food was outstanding the service was awesome and it was one of those restaurants that truly Lived UP TO THE HYPE.My southern fried chicken,biscuits,gravy with homemade mashed potatoes and grilled corn on the cob was a foodgasm.My wife's filet mignon was cooked to perfection.Our Daughters dinner salmon salads were succulent and Bobby's service was exemplary.

One of my favorite places in Laguna Beach, really good food and a great staff! Sometimes there is a little bit of a wait but it usually worth it. Really cool atmosphere, making it good for big groups or a nice private dinner. I usually go with one of the salads but the appetizers are also really good!

We loved this place! Just had lunch and the food was excellent. We had the blackberry and blueberry mojitos. Outstanding! Erika had the Ahi Salad. Very fresh and a great balance of flavors. I ordered the fish sandwich. They were out of the usual fish and they replaced it with Sea Bass. Best "Fish Sandwich" that we have ever had.

Location was great. Service was pleasant. Very clean and crisp updated modern look. We will eat here again when we return to Laguna.

My hubby ordered the filet. Probably one of the best steaks ever. Tasty, tender, perfect! Need to get there early or make reservation....it gets very crowded.
