Stopped in one weekday afternoon for a drink. The drinks we're okay but the view is very impressive! It was pretty easy to get a table (@ 3PM) but over the next hour it really started to fill up. I was only visiting Laguna Beach for a few days but I'm glad I made the stop at the Rooftop Lounge.

Went here for drinks. The place was packed on a weekday! Amazing view. Ordered a margarita, which wasn't made so well, but who cares! Just getting to stare at the ocean from up high made up for it.

The shrimp club is awesome. The flatbread awesome, too. The view here is amazing and the drinks just as much. Only negatives are that it can get a bit crowded due to lack or space and finding parking can be a bit tough. Other than that, though, this a great place that isn't to be missed.

I can only echo what others have said about The Rooftop Bar. The view is awesome and we got there at 4pm to take advantage of Happy Hour. We had lovely wine for $5 a glass and a great seat. Unfortunately the appetisers are not on Happy Hour, but definitely worth getting some warm brie whilst you watch the sun go down. A good place to start if you are doing the monthly art walk around Laguna Beach.

One of our favorite drop-in spots, but one that has some very different rules to live by. I didn't give it the top rating because it does take some getting used to. When you have a view this stunning, it's pretty much a "Lord of the Flies" seating situation. Yes, you have to stalk tables, but done correctly, it can be a great way to interact and meet new people. If you expect to sit back and think there are some rules of first come, first served, forget it. Try to hit the slightly off hours and enjoy an Ahi Poke to die for. Need to fill up? The meatballs are surprisingly good. It's not worth the ridiculous $150 table reservation price, something that tells me the management may have locked into "greed" mode. Even so, this place offers a nothing short of spectacular view of Laguna Beach. For tourists, pick your times wisely and enjoy.
