We used to eat here every year when we visited Seal Beach but we hadn't been in a about 3 years so thought we'd give it a try. Was disappointed to see they didn't have the awesome lamb on the menu but was super pleased with the Jalepeno Margharita. I had the pork shank but it was just too sweet... More

okay - preface: Work function. ~20 people. Wanted to just let their hair down. Walt's was Fabulous! Not only did they accommodate our group of 20 on a 2 day notice (which was very much appreciated), they also moved us from one small back room upstairs to another larger room upstairs so we could all socialize and not be at...

We visited this restaurant based on t/a reviews, and it was just lovely. So much choice of seafood, also steak. Prices included soup or salad. We had fish soup, trout and pilau rice, and brochettes shrimp and steak. So Lovely. Also good choice of draught ales which we enjoy. Fabulous!

The food is solid here, but it's a little pricey. Lunch is a good deal and not as crowed. It can be a LONG wait for dinner sometimes. Service has always been very friendly and nice here.

This was my first visit to Walt's Wharf while visiting a friend in CA. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. It was average; I would not recommend or order again. It did have a nice grilled flavor. The service was nice, and the location was nice as well.

Walt's is a favorite among the locals. I had a fine lunch here at my favorite table in the bar where gooning is mandatory.. This is a great place to people watch. I ordered Walt's special Salad with a side of Scallops. The scallops were grilled to perfection and had just a hint of smoke on them from the fire.... More

Walt's Wharf is a delightful Seal Beach find. The food is wonderful and the choices are many. It has good atmosphere and friendly servers. A must for us when we are in town.

We were a large party celebrating my son's graduation. The table was ready, the staff was friendly and the food was excellent. Several of us started the meal off with the Manhattan Chowder. It was clearly homemade and chock full of clams and veggies. Simply perfect. My barometer for a great place to dine is brochette. Been a lot of... More

As a fairly new resident of Seal Beach, we went to Walt's Wharf for Mother's Day. I had the most outstanding, hot, steamy, perfectly cooked King Crab Legs that I've ever had! The service was excellent, and we definitely won't wait for a special occasion to return!
