Seafood | Anaheim, North Orange County

We were a party of eight, celebrating two birthdays. The food was excellent, as expected, but we choose this restaurant not only for its reputation but because it had a dedicated vegetarian mini-menu. The vegetarian dish was elegant, delicious, and a hearty portion. Service was fun, friendly and efficient, and we had an early dinner so it was still relatively quiet. Great place for a celebration. The only thing I wish it had was valet parking or equivalent parking option for our older members. The parking structure was a little too far of a walk for them. More

Roy's always provides excellent food with special to the table service - the selection of fresh fish is varied and appetizing - the service is a little over the top with frequent table visits - the noise level is uncomfortable and the tables need to be farther apart - More

Brewery | Tustin, North Orange County

Great and Quick on service. They don’t excessively check on you and don’t forget either. Drinks and food were very quick as well; didn’t really need much as everything was already given. Food was good even though what I wanted was already out but was recommended for something else still came out great. The veggies even had a lot of flavor even though to seem have a lot of butter and the garlic bread as well but can’t really complain. It’s a bit dark but didn’t mind it considering going on a date. It’s nice for a date or to have a few drinks. Wouldn’t mind to come back to try something else. More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
