Simple but delicious mid-range dining. Grab a seat outdoors and watch the clouds and crowds go by. Very attentive service.

This restaurant is one of several on Marine Ave on Balboa Island. It is across from the Fire Station and a block to the water's edge.

Stopped in here after hearing about it from a friend. Actually, that friend stumbled upon it, and ate there 3 days in a row when in OC for a business trip. Based on that, I had to go and check it out for myself. Outside of Balboa Island being a really neat place, this is a must do if on... More

The food was outstanding. I had fish and chips and the fish was so fresh and the batter very good and the chips looked like potato chips but were French fries. Everyone in my group loved their meals. Prices were reasonable. Must be a very popular place because it was full. The service was awesome! I would highly recommend you... More

We stopped at Wilma's for a late breakfast. I ordered the french toast and coffee. The french toast was the best I ever had. Nothing fancy about it...but it was great!! I would certainly return to Wilma's whenever I am on Balboa Island again!!

Such a fun atmosphere and the food was delicious. So many options. Make sure to try the breakfast! The pretzel burger was also fantastic. It was a fun place to take the family.

Stopped in Wilma's for lunch on our tour of Balboa Island. Exceptionally clean restaurant with an extensive lunch menu. Prices were very fair. I ordered chili and half a turkey melt sandwich. My wife ordered salad and half grilled cheese. Both were outstanding. It was not a cup of chili, but a bowl. Just a great meal. Servers were pleasant... More
