First time to Walt’s. Very impressed with quality of food and staff. Artichoke was excellent and the Albacore was perfectly cooked. Ambience, food, and service all worth the price. Definitely coming back again.

Cane for dinner and had the halibut special. They specialize in an oak grill and the place has a wonderful aroma of the wood. Grilled artichokes was superb! Gf had a pasta plate and was hearty and delish! Glad we went and we will return!

We went to Walt’s by chance. Had never been there or had a recommendation. It was an afternoon of talking, eating, and drinking. The staff was wonderful never hurried us or bothered us. Love the place

I have not found a good hotel right in downtown Seal Beach. I generally stay at the Hilton Hampton Inn on Seal Beach Blvd or the Best Western in Sunset Beach. In either case you would need to drive. Try to get to Main St... 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.
