“Fresh Seafood with the right preparation at a good value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Been going to Walt's for years, always know that the fish will be fresh and cooked to perfection. If its crowded just take a nice stroll along Main St. while you wait or walk down to the Pier! Can't go wrong at Walt's Wharf!

Right downtown Seal Beach fish house. The smells will make your mouth water and the taste will not disappoint.

“Consistently Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

My husband and I had our second date here 13 years ago - we came back several times, including when he proposed out on the pier. We have celebrated many of our 8 year anniversaries at Walt's and most rencently celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary and it's always the same...FANTASTIC! The wine list is awesome, the food in always delicious. For the first time we sat at the bar and were delighted by the bartenders and cook station so our food was freshly prepared right in front of us. All in all, great times and we will keep coming back!

“good choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

There were good food and wine choices for everyone's tastes. Interesting menu, when in town again, this will be a "go to" place.

“Best Seafood in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

What can you say about this place except that next time I'm in the Seal Beach area (or anywhere even remotely close), I will make a point of going there. Food is awesome and the bar is a great place to see how they cook the appetizers. Wine list is exceptional. We had a great Pinot Noir that we will try to find locally. Highly recommend this place!
