The Hangout Restaurant & Beach Bar is an ocean view restaurant in Seal Beach, CA by the pier. We're located at 901 Ocean Avenue and Main Street. Unlike other downtown Seal Beach restaurants, The Hangout has 180 degree panoramic ocean views just footsteps to the water. We offer a casual dining atmosphere with a surf theme throughout. It's the perfect restaurant in Seal Beach for a romantic dinner, wedding anniversary, birthday or to catch up with friends and family. At night, dine with the lighted backdrop of the beautiful Seal Beach Pier and waterfront.

Opened on May 21, 2012, The Hangout is a locally owned and operated Seal Beach restaurant with ocean views. We take our food very seriously and therefore only use the very highest quality meats, seafood, and produce. Our New American menu consists of many traditional dishes with a little southern flair. Breakfast, lunch, and dinners are made fresh to order daily. We purchase seafood not on the Seafood Watch List and only use products that we feel live up to your expectations.

“There are other Seal Beach restaurants with an ocean view but only The Hangout has direct views of the ocean and pier.”

The Hangout offers a wine program featuring many great tasting California wines. We're proud to feature ONEHOPE as our house wine. ONEHOPE Wine donates an astounding 50% of its profits to various charities.

During the remodeling of this Seal Beach restaurant landmark, reclaimed lumber was used in the fabrication of the table tops, bar top, and wall material throughout. All of our paper products and food takeout supplies are recycled and compostable. See for yourself why we're one of the best restaurants in Seal Beach, CA. Stop in and dine with us by the beach!
