Lumberyard

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.

"My husband and I have been to most of the Laguna restaurants, but had yet to try Lumberyard. We were pleasantly surprised with how much we liked it! Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant was very kid-friendly. We had dinner on a Monday night, and there was a surprising amount of families. We don't mind, having a 2 and 4 year old (that we left at home for once!), and there was a young child in the booth next to us that was kicking and jumping around a bit, but again, being in the same boat, we were mostly unfazed.
For an appetizer, we ordered the shrimp ceviche, which I thought was yummy, but reminded me less of a ceviche and more of shrimp salsa. My husband had the salmon and I had the beef stroganoff for dinner. Both of our entrees were yummy. I ordered the campfire cookie for dessert. Can't go wrong with that. Similar to a pizookie from BJs.
Overall, we thought everything was priced fairly and were satisfied with our food and service. Would definitely go back, and maybe even bring the crazy kiddos next time!"

"We had the Half Pound Angus Chuck Cheeseburger and the Signature Lumberyard Burger. We should have shared one. They are huge and cooked to perfection. Side orders were the sweet potato fries and the buttered green beans. The fries were same as anywhere - the green beans are better than described. Fresh green beans with slivers of cheese and almonds? Soooo good.!"

"Love the always consistent menu, in house handmade pastas, fresh salads and vegetable dishes, ahi poke appetizer with mango and avocado, and the fish is always spectacular! Kerry has a magical touch with every restaurant he runs. We miss Oysters but love Lumberyard!"

"family dinner with friends we hadn't seen in a long time. picked this restaurant due to menu options that fit everyone. Food was great and ambiance were perfect for catching up. Restaurant was a bit dark but not a big factor. lots of options for waling around on the beach boardwalk and shopping before and after dinner"

"Close to Laguna Playhouse, which is why we went. Service was good. Food was so-so, bland pasta and they forgot to put the prawns in my dish until 3/4 through the meal (they arrived separately at my table). Hubby'a pasta dish was good, though. Lots of diners there pre-theater.
They also have a dog patio outside which would make us go there again with our puppy.

"It took forever to get service and 30 minutes to get the food. The "medium burger was charred, tough and tasteless and it never saw the cheese that was to be on it. Once the food was delievered we never saw the waiter until he brought the check."

"I love the ambiance and atmosphere of the Lumberyard, and we (there were four of us) enjoyed a nice quiet relaxed lunch. The service was very good and expeditious, and the food was tasty (we sampled each other’s). The only thing that kept my "overall" and "value" ratings at very good, vice outstanding, was, admittedly, a frivolous thing. I ordered a cheeseburger (the only such choice on the menu) which, obviously, came with cheese. I asked for the cheese to be left off and the raw onions as well. I did ask for caramelized onions to be added which carried an additional $2.00 charge. Half-jokingly I suggested to the server that I not be charged the additional $2.00 for the caramelized onions as I was forgoing the cheese and the raw onions. I think it was her reception of, and response to, that "suggestion" that put me off. Though theoretically, she was correct, I think that at $16.99 for a hamburger, they could have been a little more accommodating. Otherwise, as always when we go to the Lumberyard, our experience was very satisfying, and we will continue to eat there."

"We keep coming back because the food is consistently good. Forget having a conversation though... this place is insanely noisy."

"My husband and I tried this for the first time during dinner. The food was good relative to the prices. My husband got the chicken pot pie which was delicious but huge. I got the pecan-crusted sole which was also delicious. Food portions are large so come hungry. Seems to have good energy at the bar for happy hour and through the evening, but not overwhelming. Service is pretty good and nice options for beer on tap."
