Solid seafood

Fresh is a great word to describe Seabolts. They know seafood and how to cook it. We had fish tacos along with mussels and clams. The fish tacos were served on crispy shells, a departure from mostly soft tacos. The mussels and clams were steamed right. The Penn Cove mussels are the sweetest mussels... read more

I have always loved Seabolts for their smoked salmon, but I have to say that the clam chowder is the best I have ever had. Rich, creamy, not too thick, just the right amount of seasoning. The clams are tender, and they add bacon for extra flavor. It pairs well with the Pinot Grigio. Fast and friendly service too.

Boy, I wish my little gal liked seafood because she missed out. These are absolute professionals when it comes to fried seafood. I never, repeat, never say anything is the 'best ever' when I review, and it's taking every bit of effort from me not to after this lunch. The filets were perfectly breaded and prepared. You could have put... More

Seabolt's deserves five 'stars' just for the clam chowder alone. It wasn't thick and pasty, and had so many mild interesting flavors I couldn't identify them all. The potatoes were perfect. I've had clam chowder along the east coast from Massachusetts to Maine and in San Francisco. This one is the best. Their coleslaw is also good, tangy, crispy and... More

Based on reviews on Trip Advisor & Google, we decided to try Seabolts Smokehouse last Saturday. The mussels were excellent as was the salmon fish & chips. Portions are large enough for two to share. It would be difficult to have fish that is not fried, however. Service was efficient and we were not disappointed. Worth a try if you... More

We wanted to have some fresh sea good so our family took us here. I'm so glad they did, the shell fish was awesome in every way. I had the Oysters & Chips and my oysters were huge. Couldn't ask for a better meal.

Then PLEASE take it off the menu board! So... I tried shrimp. Nope, out of season... More

Seabolt's is an institution. They are family owned, friendly, and always exceed my expectations. I am in Oak Harbor frequently visiting family, and I always need to come at least once to have fish and chips. I prefer cod, but have had the halibut and salmon and they are all fantastic! So fantastic, I am afraid that I have never... More

Seabolt's Smokehouse and Deli is one of those rare places that is family -owned, pays the highest attention to delivering their best and is a valued part of their community. Owned and run by a family of fishermen, they have seafood, clams, mussels, Dungeness crab, salmon and other fresh fish available to take out and cook up at home, buy... More
