Description: House of BIG FISH and Ice Cold Beer – the name says it all. This seafood savvy neighborhood hotspot boasts an upbeat atmosphere and a straightforward menu of fresh fish perfectly paired with one of the best ice cold beer selections in town. From the clean, vibrant interior to the relaxing ocean views of the wraparound dining patio, BIG FISH is uniquely Laguna Beach.

Great food, good prices, fun environment. The patio area is the best because it is quieter and has great views! Can be a little loud at times. Ate there twice on our recent trip because it was so good. Only advice would be to chill the beer glasses, beer wasn't as ice cold as we had hoped for. But overall, loved the place!

The food was really good and it has a great, fun atmosphere that was perfect for our family. Definitely recommend House of Big Fish and will go again next time in Laguna.

We have had meals with large groups including children and small groups. The restaurant has been great both times. There is something for everyone even if you are not a lover of seafood. The atmosphere is casual and if you have a group, it is best to make a reservation. Try to get one of the tables by the windows for the best view, but even if you are not close to the window, you get a peak of the ocean. Our meals were great and we enjoyed the seafood entrees, tacos, and appetizers. You cannot beat it for a reasonable seafood meal in Laguna Beach with a view. There are many options in Laguna, but this menu really is so varied that everyone will enjoy something.

Last night walked around Laguna and found the place by accident. Was a little noisy & crowded, but food was great. We ordered 36 oysters and they were delicious.
We also liked lettuce wraps. Very good prices , expecially while Happy Hours.
Nice ocean view also.

My wife and I love fish, so we did not hesitate to eat at this restaurant when we got the chance. It is quite crowded and noise level is high. However, if you love fish go here.
