Walt’s Wharf

Top choice seafood in Seal Beach

Everybody’s favorite for fresh fish (some drive in from LA), Walt’s packs them in on weekends. You can’t make reservations for dinner (though they’re accepted for lunch), but it’s worth the wait for the oak-fire-grilled seafood and steaks in the many-windowed ground floor or upstairs in captain's chairs. Otherwise, eat at the bar.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the long menu or the huge selection of wines by the glass – knowledgeable waitstaff are happy to share their expertise.
