Seal Beach CA Restaurant

Our original restaurant, The Hangout Restaurant & Beach Bar, is an Ocean View Restaurant in Seal Beach located at the corner of Ocean Avenue and Main Street footsteps from the Seal Beach Pier with views of the Pacific Ocean. Take a walk, view the local scenery, or visit one of the several Seal Beach Main Street boutiques and shops before dining. The Hangout is a casual restaurant with ocean views for a relaxing dinner, celebrating a special occasion, a birthday, or a night with family. From Long Beach, we are a mere 17 minutes and Los Angeles only 40 minutes; we are worth the drive to the South Bay of Los Angeles. Our popular New American cuisine has some great selections ranging from burgers, steaks, many seafood dishes including our amazing seafood pots and our popular Hangout Breakfast. In addition, our Seal Beach Brunch is the perfect place to enjoy an amazing Bloody Mary or mimosa steps to the Seal Beach waterfront. You'll also find the latest craft beers on draft. Some say we have the best hamburgers in Seal Beach. We also have one great happy hour in Seal Beach. Whether you're in town for the Anaheim or Long Beach Convention Center, vacationing in or around Seal Beach— break out of ordinary. Visit one of the few Seal Beach restaurants on the water. Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Dine and relax with us by the beach!
