At times the parking can be a challenge (check the signs carefully for curbside parking - some spots are two hours, other are ONE hour - tickets are written at 65 minutes!). Food is good. Scorpion chowder is a delicious fish chowder that's kicked up to be warming and spicy. The daily lunch specials are quickly delivered to your table... More

Ordered the spicy clam chowder and a fish taco. The clam chowder was perfectly flavored like the waiter said it's more like a lobster bisque with clams instead of lobster. However I would have liked more clam in the soup. The fish in the fish taco was crispy and juicy on the inside as it should be. Top this with... More

All of the taco surf locations are good eating but this one is my favorite. It is down the street from the pier in Seal Beach and serves up some tasty tacos. The Monday night football menu is my favorite. Cheap items and some different tacos that they don't have on the regular menu for other days. The ice tea... More

Good prices, location and atmosphere lead us to Taco Surf. Mallorie, our server, was a great hostess and provided some useful local insight. The Scorpion (spicy shrimp) Chowxer was the highlight

Toco Surf is so so good. The chips and salsa are the best. The chips are always warm and the salsa always cold. I always go to Taco Surf for the Happy Hour tacos. 2 dollar tacos!!!!! Are you kidding me???? 1 grilled fish, 1 fried fish, 1 carnitas and 1 carne asada and 1 cold beer will run you... More

My wife joined me on business trip to Long Beach so we decided to tour Seal Beach and found this place for supper. It presents as a bit of a hole in the wall, so we figured it probably was a great place to eat. We were right! Being Taco Tuesday, we each ordered a variety which were on special,... More

Stayed nearby and ate here three times in a week enjoyed it each time. The staff were friendly and efficient. Most importantly the food was delicious, especially the Baja Fish Tacos. Margaritas were nice as well.

I hadn’t eaten here for a while but Taco Surf Seal Beach used to be my favorite place for fish tacos. Anyway, I was really disappointed during my recent visit. I ordered Baja-style tacos and the fish seemed poor quality and the batter was thick, mealy, and overfried. While the service was friendly and prices reasonable, I will no longer... More
