Eaten at this restaurant a couple of times and always enjoy the clam chowder. It’s located in the heart of Old Town and we enjoy walking to Walt’s from our hotel. Will visit again when we are in Seal Beach!

A lively neighborhood spot that is worth stopping by. Good variety on the menu. Our steak was fabulous but I thought the coconut shrimp were quite dry and tough. Everyone around us seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and we did too. Pricey, especially drinks,...More

I always park on Main St, but get there around 4.30-5p. It is 2 hr parking but that limit ends at 6p. If not on Main, try Central Ave.

It's a high end place to dine. So if you have a child maybe who can sit without crying through a meal then yes. It's darker inside for atmosphere for romantic dining and i see business groups.
