We went to seal Beach to wander in shops and had lunch at this restaurant. I was under the impression that it had a view of the pier in the ocean. Although it is across the street from the beach is a very limited view. The food was adequate I had salmon sliders my friends had pork sliders and a chicken sandwich. Each of these came with an over abundance of delicious french fries.

Cody was our great server. He is positive and energetic. I had the Diablo Veggie Burger and it is delicious...pretty hot! The onion Rings are a favorite and my Husband had grilled fish street tacos. He ordered 4 of them at $2.50 each and really liked them. Love this spot!

We really enjoyed the restaurant. It was busy but service was prompt and food came out hot. The calamari appetizer was delicious and the calamari was very tender. I had the fish and chips and my husband had the hangout burger. We really enjoyed both. I upgraded my fries to the parmesan garlic fries and they were delicious. I could have repelled vampires for at least 2 days! So if you dont like garlic that much, probably not for you. We were here just for the weekend but if we had more time, we would have definitely returned to try other items. Definitely recommend!

Stopped off here on a tour of the west coast for a hearty breakfast. It was so good we went back a few days later for dinner. The burgers are second to none in LA, and it has an amazing selection of craft beers on offer. Definitely worth a visit in you’re in the Seal Beach area.
Amazing.

The hangout came recommended, and to be fair the place is always busy. Good service and a good selection of ales. What let the place down was the food we chose to order,food swimming in water as the greens had not been drained after cooking,food not marked on the menu as spicy but cooked in a spicy sauce. To the management credit ,after we pointed this out we were only billed for our drinks and one burger. Don't let this review put you off going in,a great atmosphere inside, it was only the food that disappointed us.
