We had taken the bus from Orange County to Seal Beach, long trip, over an hour. Beach was nice and while strolling through the town, came upon Walt's Wharf. Menu looked interesting, service was good.

We were a party of 10 for business dinner. The place was packed on a weekday night. The meal was delicious and the service friendly. I would highly recommend the Poke appetizer.

We have used the quality of the food, atmosphere and service at Walt's to evaluate restaurants we go to all over the world. One cannot beat their salmon, especially the Copper River Salmon and the owner's wines produced at Babcock Winery. We have been going there almost 20 years and never been disappointed with the great food, atmosphere and service!

Great Seal Beach small town classic beach 'Fish House". Always street parking, no parking meters in classic small town Seal Beach, right off PCH only a few miles from the 405 Freeway. Eat excellent food with excellent service in a cozy restaurant; they go for a walk out onto the old wooden Seal Beach Pier.

We typically meet resident friends at Walt's when we visit Newport Beach. It's a good midway point and an excellent restaurant. The food is excellent as is the service. And Seal Beach is such a cool little town.
