“Best Seafood in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Make this the best day ever. Park on the quaint Main Street in the lovely Old Town Seal Beach. Pick any seafood lunch or dinner, you just can't miss. The food, service, and the friendly small town feel makes this restaurant one of the local's favorite. After your meal stroll the town and end up taking in the ocean view on the Seal Beach Pier.

“Great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great salmon. I've never had any seafood item that wasn't outstanding. The crab is so fresh it reminds me of catching them and cooking them on the spot. Very good wine selection. The owner also owns Babcock wine which is a wonderfully winery in the santa Barbara area known for their Pinot Noir. Needless to say the restaurant is stocked with great Pinot's ... both theres and other great California Pinots. Also some great white wines.

“Great eats in Seal Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The fish tacos were good, but the hamburgers (strangely enough for a seafood place) and the seafood salad my friends had were what really got raves.

“The Woodfire Smell Will Draw You In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Every time we visit Seal Beach, we dine at Walt's Wharf. You must order the Oak Grilled Artichoke and the Smoked Fish Platter.

“Always great seafood.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is my favorite seafood place right after The Fish Co. in Los Alamitos, but not as fancy. The food is always great, greek seafood salad is excellent, the fish tacos are my next favorite. Good wine list, friendly servers, not too noisey. The food never changes, well prepared, and served. Large menu will suit any one, any taste. Walking distance to the Seal Beach Pier.
