Went on a Friday night, and that may have been the problem. However, we have been there previously on a Friday night, and it was very nice. This time, not so much. VERY loud, so crowded my chair was sitting on the room heater stand with no way to move it. Our waitress was excellent, attentive, helpful, pleasant. Clam chowder had lots of pieces of meat in it, and was seasoned perfectly. The lobster tail was way overcooked on one end and nearly raw on the other. The result was I had to borrow my friends steak knife to cut it on one end and the other end was squishy. (Can't think of a better descriptive word) The garlic mashed potatoes were very good without being overwhelming with the garlic flavor, but again the broccoli was so tough i had to use the steak knife to cut it. They can do better than this, and have done so in the past. I'm sure it would be great to sit outside to dine, too. Certainly quieter, even with the waves on the beach.

It's been years since we last dined here but it's still a treat. Service was quick and efficient without feeling rushed. The lobster bisque was smooth and creamy and very good. The crab cakes were accompanied by a very tasty sauce with just enough tang to please the palate. The shrimp and beef kabobs were seasoned well and the couscous was very pleasing. We were glad to find that an old favorite is still a good favorite.

Went there with business friends. Loud, crowded, dirty, HOT! No a/c and no air flow at all. My food ok, but nothing to come back for. As for the sunset, no way to see with so many people and my back to the "closed" window. A real disappointment.

If you go down to Laguna Beach, food is not the best, but ambiance is key.
This place has an amazing view of the beach.
Great for brunch.
Has a good Bloody Mary.
