We went to Seabolt's to buy fresh salmon, our first experience with them. The Baker River salmon filets looked wonderful - but we needed them cut to portions so we could freeze right away. The person helping us, Elise (sp?) was amazing. She cut 9 1/2 lb pieces and wrapped them individually for us, with patience and a smile. Since... More

This small restaurant is attached to a fish-processing facility, so the seafood is amazingly fresh. The salmon and cod were delicious and the fries were great. The prices were very reasonable and the servers were very friendly. I think they could easily fill a larger facility, but it looked like they do a busy take-out service for the locals.

Seabolts are a family of fishermen who opened this fish/shell fish processing facility and next door restaurant. Real fresh out of Puget Sound - crab, clams, salmon, etc. Amazing clam chowder and fresh garlic bread. We also took home beautifully packaged smoked salmon as a souvenir for our family. Authentic seafood in Oak Harbor.

We went to Seabolts for lunch with a friend who lives on the island and liked it so well, we returned for dinner. The fish was fresh and well cooked, The prices were great and the servers could not have been more helpful. I only wish that we lived closer or had a place as good near us. Next time... More

Pleasant waitstaff and great crab cakes. I only ordered one and wish I had ordered both, good salad with a balsamic dressing. Second time here and great meals each time.

The salmon pate is terrific, the seafood gumbo was very good and the mixed shells (clams & mussels) were delightful, with superb broth. The service was good the prices were reasonable and the outdoor seating was adequate (beside hwy 20). There could have been more choice in terms of appetizers, oysters on the half shell was expected but not available.

After a day of exploring Whdbey Island we were ready for good food and a relaxing evening and we found both. This surprisingly small place (I thought it would be big given the nearby NAS) is filled with a down home vibe and food to match. We were trying to go light and decided to split a cup of chowder...

My husband and I decide to split the combination for two. It could easily served more. It had oysters, halibut, salmon, cod, calamari, prawns, shrimp, and clams. A lot of fries too. It is served with 3 sauces which were great. All of this is fried. There were way too many clam strips. The main fish items had to be... More

This place was recommended by the hotel staff where we were staying. My granddaughter had a whole crab which was good. My husband and I ordered the fish and chips. We also ordered the chowder. The chowder was not even that warm. The fish had no flavor. The coating on the fish was just as bland as could be. It... More

Our son and daughter in law are stationed at Whidbey Island NAS and took us to Seabolts. My daughter in law and wife don't care for seafood and they found plenty on the menu to satisfy them. I had the oyster platter which was a little mre breaded than I like, but the fresh taste of the oysters overcame a... More
