Welcome to our premier waterfront restaurant in Laguna Beach that features an ocean-to-table dining experience of the freshest and finest seafood, steaks, and hand-shucked oysters, alongside handcrafted cocktails and breathtaking views of the sparkling Pacific. Our Laguna Beach restaurant focuses on California cuisine that’s inspired, yet simply prepared, with a focus on seasonal ingredients and the ocean that’s right in our backyard. Executive Chef/Partner Rainer Schwarz draws inspiration from many places in his seafood menus, which all highlight the diversity and freshness that the ocean provides us with.

We invite you to experience our award winning waterfront restaurant in Orange County, Driftwood Kitchen and Stateroom Bar, which embraces the welcoming spirit of Laguna Beach – approachable, original, and hard to leave.
