service is always excellent and so is the food. You also can't beat the view, straight out onto the pier and ocean. We go here regularly for breakfast and it is consistently delicious with great service. Get there early otherwise be prepared to wait. We sit at the little two-seaters which offer the best view of the ocean. Fun to... More

Chicken & Waffle was a great choice. Large portion, enough for tomorrow as leftovers. Pleasant by the window in a table for two. Unfortunately an obnoxious party of 4 felt they should talk as if they were not in a public place... laughing loud and carrying on so we could not have a conversation easily.

I Amin California on business and was staying in Los Alamitos so I decided to go to Seal Beach for lunch and watch the football game. Stopped at the Hangout and this place was exactly what I was looking for. Plenty of TV's plus the food and service was great.

We stopped here and had lunch before the each. The food was great, the staff was awesome, and the prices were on point! We had been to Disneyland and Universal Studios the last 3 days so this was a nice break. Our kids enjoyed themselves which was nice. Overall, I recommend this place as a homey place to eat.

Sometimes the return doesn't live up to the expectation. This place did. Great food, great service, excellent views. Easy parking, free for an hour along the beach curb. Tacos (2) and bbq pork sliders (3) are recommended. Super yummy fries!
