We have had many wonderful meals at Walt's. The food, wines and service are great. Try the grilled artichoke appetizer. It is wonderful. The copper river salmon is a favorite in the spring when it is fresh. My favorites at lunch are the salmon tacos. Enjoy.

We have eaten here many, many times. It is excellent for a special occasion. The service is always excellent and the food is wonderful. We pretty much always get seafood as this is the speciality. The oak grill makes all the difference. They have a great array of wines also.

When I was going to college I worked for Walt's Wharf in Seal Beach. It was sold to another party think it was a bakery in Katella. Then went downhill. It was bought back by the Babcocks several years ago. Its a busy, upbeat, fun place. Yes the wait is extremely long, you have to be patient, however, you can go in the bar and order steamed clams and beer and wait for your table. It's a good place to go on a date and walk the Seal Beach Pier afterwards.

The food is "ok". The service is not all the wonderful either. They don't take reservations and forget about going on the weekend because you'll be waiting 2+ hours for a table.

I love coming here after work with friends and just hang out and enjoy the wonderful ambience and service that this joint provides. The crowd is always super friendly, the staff are jovial and lovely to be around, and the prices can't be beat.

I've been to a lot of seafood places, this isn't it. It's not bad, but certainly nothing special. Yes - it is not a chain and has a local feel to it. It blends a slow beach city feel with a higher end seafood restaurant very well. The waiters and staff are a little less formal and behave so with those who are obvious regulars.

We periodically drive from LA to Walts because in my opinion, it is among the best seafood places in the LA and OC areas. Well worth the drive. Excellent service-we have actually told the waitpersons and managers that we had a "perfect" meal in theor restaurant. Good, fresh seafood (their salmon with the soyu glaze is my personal favorite). Good oysters, a nice Cesar salad, just a great meal! Too bad that it is a favorite of many, so the wait can be long but with a vibrating pager, you can walk arond and shop in some of the nearby shops. Have a wonderful meal (with a cognac afterwards) and then take a walk to the nearby pier. This place is located in a very, very safe area so nightime strolls are peaceful.

This is the best there is for fresh seafood. Presentation is Wonderful. Ambience is Great. The Food is always Delcious. A little pricey but worth it. Take a walk on the pier after dinner. Very romantic.
Families are welcome but because of the wait to be seated and when they are busy sometimes the food wait can be long, bring plenty to keep little ones busy at the table.

Cons: , no dinner resevations, pricey but worth it

One of only a few good restaurants in Seal Beach, this funky restuarant is a great joint. There is a great wine list, and my favorite is the oak-grilled fish. A little crowded, but it's the best restaurant for miles in the Seal Beach area
