Description: In 1912, at the bend of Forest Avenue, 23 year old Joe Jahraus opened the Laguna Lumber Company, he and his father(cigar maker, first postmaster and real estate agent) built the beautiful French Normandy building that is here today. Prior to the lumberyard opening, building supplies needed to be dragged in by mule or floated in on the tides, and therefore, Laguna Beach had less than three hundred permanent residences. After the lumberyard opened, the area began to grow at unprecedented rates, transforming it from a tent town into a thriving city. Laguna Lumber operated for seventy three years, sixty two of them in this location and its' architecture, influenced by Joe's tour abroad in World War I, is one of the most significant influences on the town's aesthetic. Half timbers, mud walls and shingled roofs grace many of the downtown storefronts and homes throughout the city because of this landmark. Today, 384 Forest is home to Lumberyard - a contemporary American restaurant.

Dinner for two was delicious on Friday evening. The restaurant was packed and they were turning away walk in guests, so happy we had made a reservation through Open Table! The hostess was delightful and seated us in a requested booth right away. The waiter was pleasant and friendly albeit a little distracted by a large number of tables. We had brought some special champagne and it took quite a while to find an ice bucket and then to open the bottle but it was fine....The halibut and salmon were delicious and the calamari appetizer was fresh and tasty. Overall, it was a very nice meal at one of our favorite restaurants in Laguna.

Wow! I can’t believe I waited so long to come here! First, it is a beautiful restaurant. The service was amazing and the food was fresh and had large portions. Secondly, the Happy Huor was insane! Great deals on drinks and appetizers. The drinks were strong and the food didn’t feel like they just cut the portions to make the Happy Hour prices look like a deal. I can’t wait to return!

Emma and I had dinner here before attending Laguna Playhouse to see "Million Dollar Quartet" (outstanding!!). We got to the restaurant during Happy Hour (3:30 - 5:30PM) and filled up on their great plates. We had the Crispy Calamari, Shrimp and Lobster Spring Rolls, BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders, and Sweet Potato Fries. All delicious (especially with a glass of wine (Emma) and a cold brew (Me). Only served in the bar or on the patio which was fine. Great service. Will do again and again.

This was our 3rd visit to the lumber yard in Laguna beach.Great bar with several different beers on tap and delicious cocktails to go with a very nice selection of starters. The food menu is terrific, and you can't go wrong with the double bone in pork chop,it's amazing.The wait staff is friendly and attentive, especially Chad.Make this a dinner destination if you are going to Laguna beach.
