Beautiful location and delicious food. There’s a good, relaxed upscale vibe. Definitely need to make reservations on a beautiful day. Will be back many times

Great to sit on the deck and look at the ocean. A great drinks menu and good service. Quiet an upscale crowd. The local beers are great. We didnt eat here so I can't comment on the food. Service was great, very attentive staff and never pushed us to order food considering we were taking up a table within prime positioning.

Four friends got together for a beautiful afternoon @ Laguna Beach and the Deck.

Drinks, appetizers, dishes and service were excellent. Weather was a sunny afternoon and the surfers were hitting the waves.

Highly recommended when in Laguna especially for beach side dinning.

We had a great dining experience at the Deck on Laguna Beach during our visit to SoCal in September 2018. We put our names on the waitlist expecting a 90 minute wait, but they texted us in 15 minutes, so that was a pleasant surprise. They have a great selection of entrees. For a lighter lunch, my wife ordered potato gnocchi caprese ($18) and I had the cobb salad ($17), both of which were well-prepared and we left full. Service was above average, but note you can only split a bill maximum three ways. Views of Laguna Beach are quite nice. Bear in mind this place gets very busy and they do not take reservations, so best to show up early, go on the waitlist and explore the sights and sounds beforehand.

Please kindly indicate if you found this review to be helpful, as it will help me focus on my future review efforts! Safe travels!!

Great casual spot overlooking the ocean with really excellent food. They don't take reservation so we went early for lunch around 11:30am and had no problem getting a table.The cheese plate was as good as any we have had at much higher end spots, the Gouda and homemade ricotta were delicious. The shrimp tacos were also excellent but the mahi-mahi sandwich was one of the best we have ever had. We spent a long weekend in Dana Point at the Ritz and came to the Deck for lunch on a recommendation from a friend that used to live in the area. It was so good we went there twice!!
