Tried the Halibut fish and chips with lime chili tartar sauce. The panko crusty was crunchy but a little overdone. For me lime chili sauce while tasty overwhelmed the halibut. I preferred the malt vinegar. A little pricey. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stopped by Seabolts and the first smell as you enter is a glorious “Smokey” essence. Reasonable prices, fantastic seafood and friendly staff. I can see why locals love it. We got there before line formed. Very casual. So worth it.

This restaurant serves a variety of seafood, but its main entre is a variety of deep fried cod, salmon, halibut and potatoes. They do well with that and have a variety of other seafood products for sale.

Following a tip from our hotel, we went to Seabolts, an unassuming deli style restaurant in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island, WA. The fish stew was excellent with lots of fish in it! The fish platter and the grilled halibut were great, too. We ate...More

There are very few restaurants for which we will drive 50 miles. Seabolt's is definitely one of those. We especially think their chowder is exceptional; their halibut is absolutely delicious; the chile lime tartar sauce complements the meal perfectly. The wait staff is friendly and...More
