Fresh seafood. Nice atmosphere. Moderately priced food. Lovely server named Zach that knows his job and does it well! I got the grilled seafood salad. Next time I go, I'm getting the same thing. Perfectly cooked shrimp scallops and octopus. Mum got a lovely trout. We split the crab cakes and creme brulee, also excellent. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here today. The food was very good & so was the service. Ask for Marin(spelling?) she is one of the best servers we have had on our trip here to southern California.

Four of us enjoyed lunch here over Labor Day weekend. We had great service, very friendly and good-looking wait staff. The dining room was clean and we all enjoyed our meals. Fresh seafood and prepared well. I do recommend!

Wandered down Main St after meeting a family friend on the pier We were on holiday from the U.K and had not visited this part of the coast before. We had been having a rather hectic holiday and this town seemed so tranquil and at peace with itself' We walked past a couple of restaurants and eventually picked Walt's Wharf.... More

Visit this restaurant every time we are in Seal Beach, which is monthly. Always excellent service and wonderful food, one of our all time favorite restaurants.

We live nearby so this is a regular stop for us. Halibut with the three stripe sauce is my personal favorite. My wife loves the Oak-grilled salmon. Nice wine list. It can be pricey but you and get in and out at a reasonable price if you watch your bar tab.

Went for seafood dinner. The Ciopino lacked any tomato flavor. Bread was good. Wife loved her chowder. Her Swordfish steak was slightly over cooked.

On a leisurely trip to Anaheim, we decided to roam the coast road and fine a nice place to have lunch. We found Walt's Wharf and Olivia. The food was very, very good; Olivia was amazing and very attentive. The only two concerns were (1) climbing stairs for elderly folks, and (2) the price was a bit steep, but overall... More
