Enjoyed clam chowder & a nicely embellished side salad. Slightly smallish burger. Nice choices of local wines. Arrived around 1:00 on a Wednesday ~ no problem getting seated. Excellent service.

Went on review recommendations. Popular, so go before lunch rush. Menu offer lots of choices. Halibut & Chips great, Deep fried oysters yummy, mussels were tasty (not too filling), chowders were thick and rich, wings were not spicy or anything special, smoked salmon pate excellent. Be careful when ordering, our young server was very courteous at offering extras beware they... More

This small family joint was recommended to us by several people. We were lucky that we had made a reservation because the line was out the door. We were taken to the front of the line and got seated immediately. My husband had the combination fish and chips (salmon, halibut, cod) and he raved about it after every bite. I... More

We had a long drive to Oak Harbor and were tired and hungry upon arrival. I had checked out this place on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. The food is quite good. I had the crabcake and my wife had the steamed clams. Both were delicious. The salmon pate is also very good. Try this place when you're in... More

This is a family owned restaurant/deli/seafood market which specializes in fresh seafood. It was recommended to us by our hotel staff and we were very pleased that we decided to give it a try. The service was friendly and efficient, food prepared fresh and atmosphere comfortable and relaxing. We ordered the salmon seafood tacos which were hot, crisp, tasty and... More

We have been here several times and always enjoyed a very good meal and excellent service. The fish is always fresh, well-prepared and reasonably priced. On this visit, however, it was bedlam on a Saturday night. We were told our wait would only be about five minutes but it was almost 45 minutes until we were seated. Once seated, we... More

Before eating here I rated Brad's at Pismo the best clam chowder, not now, Seabolts has the honor. The fish & chips is top notch but I have never established a best, it is more like feed it to the cat, all good or "gooder," they get the gooder. They also have a location at Deception Pass.

Read previous reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give Seabolts a try for dinner. The food was excellent and staff attentive. Keep in mind this is an upscale fast food joint but don't let that deter you. All four adults had different dishes, from the oysters and halibut with chips, fish tacos and the seafood salad plus a bowl of... More

If you are in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island, you must go to Seabolt's. And if you are near Oak Harbor, go there anyway! We stumbled upon this restaurant on a daily hunt for great local food during a multi-day cycling trip. And we made the right choice. Fresh, fresh food, great service, welcoming atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but that's not... More

A laid back fish and chips place with very fresh sea food. If it is from the sea they have it at good prices. Mostly all fried and lots of chips. We had F&C one was salman and one with cod. Soups looked good. Go early as it fills by 6:15. Lots of frozen seafood to buy. Fast friendly service... More
