The pub concept just got remade and remixed. Eats brings in guests and neighbors alike with its eclectic rustic décor. The circular bar is the perfect spot to savor a bevy - from craft beers and select wines to signature cocktails. Lots of indoor and outdoor space, including a cozy fire pit, make lounging a must.<br /><br />Now, on to the menu. Think comfort food with a creative culinary twist. Killer burgers, regional faves with our own distinctive flair, shared plates to be enjoyed by all (or one). It's all affordably priced and very regulars-friendly.<br /><br />Did we mention breakfast, lunch and dinner are served? Well, we just did.

"My omlette was good and it came fast. The waitress was notably absent after delivering everything but hurriedly sent us the check, even though it appeared we would be hanging out a while. The restaurant was not crowded at all. She really had no personality or seemed to care."

"EATS is a lovely restaurant which excels both in food preparation and customer service. The Food and Beverage Manager, Aaron was overseeing the restaurant experience to ensure all diners would have an optimum experience. Highly, highly recommend this establishment in the newly remodeled and newly acquired property from the iPreferred group called the Hotel Irvine. It's fresh, trendy and fun. EATS has a comprehensive menu of items that appeal to every palate - the soup of the day was tomato which was sensational, hamburger, steak entries par excellence. The chicken wings have a lovely Asian spice influence, as the chef incorporates the finest ingredients in his cuisine. The service, supervised by Aaron, noteworthy and classy. You are meant to feel special and I can honestly say that Aaron runs an incredible establishment here with personnel targeting on excelling in customer service. This is a great restaurant for local residents, as they validate for up to three hours. Run, don't walk to EATS and you will be most satisfied. Job well done."

Whatever you're craving, we pride ourselves at Black Angus Steakhouse for superior quality, friendly service, and great food. It's more than a tradition - it's our passion every day.

"Our experience here was nice - serrvice and food was excellent, but sequence of food items was off. Salads came first, then bread, then drinks. Not the waiters fault, as he needed to wait until the bar staff got to our mixed drinks and there was a severe back up there. Also, no acknowledgement of a birthday celebration, even though it was clearly noted in the Open Table comments."

"What a wonderful, delightful experience to dine at GG's for lunch. You have the opportunity to dine inside or outside and I would choose outside. The view of downtown Laguna Beach is wonderful. The pasta, salads and appetizers were an incredible blend of Mediterranean and Italian influences and quite tasty. Do try this wonderful restaurant for a great experience. Service was also spot on - outgoing and friendly."

"We had a new waitress, who we had to constantly remind to refill our coffee. It was obvious she needed additional training. The food was good, and served promptly. We were left alone so we were able to talk."
