Opened on May 21, 2012, The Hangout is a locally owned and operated Seal Beach Main Street restaurant. 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 but only
The Hangout has direct views of the ocean and pier”.

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 takeout supplies are recycled and compostable. See for yourself why we're one of the best restaurants in Seal Beach. Stop in and dine with us by the beach!
