Dining on the water in Seal Beach

We heading for Seal Beach for the first time and would like help finding a place for dinner on the water. We'll be there the middle of Sept. - is it too cold to eat on the beach at that time of year? Would Huntington Beach have more options? All suggestions are appreciated!

Huntington Beach may be a better option, depending on what type of food you're looking for. If you want to sit outside, right on the beach there is Dukes and Savannah on the Beach in Huntington. The only place that I know of on directly on the beach (located on the pier) in Seal Beach is Ruby's. Ruby's is diner style with excellent burgers.

Seal Beach has limited beach dining - Kinda Lahaina on the corner of Main and Ocean has a great location - but the food is pitiful - steamed veg, rice, fish stuff - not interesting. Ruby's on the end of the pier is fun for a casual lunch. But the best water front dining experience is at McKenna's on the Bay, just a short stroll from old town Seal Beach towards the north/west - truly easy walk. This place is located adjacent to Seal Beach in Alamitos Bay/Harbor, far less touristy than Huntington Beach, very pleasant to stroll around, with a few reasonable other dining alternatives - Joe's Crab Shack, the Crab Pot, Khoury's, and Buster's Beach House - but of all of them, if you want a great dining experience do McKenna's - you can book a table via opentable.com website, and request window seating. You'll be right on the water.
