Best Seafood in Orange County

My family has been coming to Catch of the Day for probably 30 years and always experience the best in Seafood. My wife especially loves the fresh Alaskan Halibut and I am a wild caught Salmon guy. We are so fortunate to live so close to the best restaurant in town.

The best seafood we have ever had! Recommend the cajan sampler. Warm bread. Terrific service. Awesome beer selection! We loved it.

"Catch of the Day" is one of the many reasons I love living in Huntington Beach. It is a small family-owned and operated seafood restaurant with an excellent selection of fresh fish, including an extensive selection of shellfish. My wife and I typically eat here every 2 weeks, and consider it to be of the same quality as Walt's Wharf... More

Excellent food. I had the coconut shrimp which was fresh and delicious. My husband had the raging Cajun which was good but should ask for a little lighter on the spice. Excellent clam chowder. Looked like a lot of locals frequent the place. We will be back.

We've been going to this restaurant off and on (we're not local) for over 10 years and it's always great, probably because the owners, who staff the place themselves, haven't changed. We understand they go to the fish market and select their own fish. The menu is consistent, but they do have specials. The beer and wine menu is varied... More

Food very good as the swordfish with macadamia nut crusting was outstanding. The service was extremely good as it was performed by the owners, a friendly husband/wife team.

looking for a decent 'local seafood' rest then this place hits the mark. prices have jumped slightly since we've been coming for past 15 yrs. but the quality hasn't diminish. GREAT CLAM CHOWDER , and the twice bake potatoes are delicious , though not calorie cutting! variety of fresh caught fish. -never had a bad selection yet, and several ways... More

There are many local seafood restaurants in the Huntington Beach area, and this is one of the beat. It is very informal and reasonably priced. It nice to be able to decide on the spur of the moment to just. Go for a nice seafood meal. They have a nice reasonably priced wine list.
