The food here seems to appeal to those wanting a familiar Cantonese lamb and bean curd stew and to people who like a nice sweet and sour pork. The food was delicious, the service was fast, the staff was nice, what more could you want?

The food here is amazing. Came with some friends and we enjoyed our dinner here. The servers were very friendly. Parking was relatively easy. The food was served quickly and tasteful.

Been going here for years and the quality of food and service is consistently good. Most recently we enjoyed a lunch of salt and pepper squid,(calamari), sauteed eggplant, walnut shrimp, sweet/sour pork chops and the standard accompanying steamed rice and a hot soup. This day they were serving a hot and sour soup that was excellent. Even though "Seafood" is in their name, there is a full variety of Chinese dishes including standards with beef, pork, chicken, etc and noodles. The waitresses are friendly and very helpful with explanations about dishes. They also do a big take-out business. Parking is a little tight, a small lot and side street parking is available. Prices are reasonable, our four dishes amounted to less than $50.

It's very simple. Powell's Seafood is by FAR the source of the best Salt and Pepper Squid I have been able to find in all my travels around the world. I can't quite figure out their secret, but I have probably eaten the dish in at least 30 different restaurants and this preparation is head and shoulders above the rest!!!

Never had "salt and pepper" preparation of squid? If you like fried calamari, you will FLIP for their salt n' pepper squid!!!
