Excellent selection of shakes + some healthy sandwich options in addition to regular burger/fries fare. The line can be long at peak times, but if you can get a table on the side patio, you'll have a nice view of the ocean.

Order at the window and enjoy your food on their deck on the cliff that overlooks the ocean. Seared Ahi burger was tasty and small but good selection of beers to enjoy with the sweeping views over Crystal Cove. Small parking lot can be a little congested - even when we visited on a Tuesday.

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.
