The clam chowder was chuck full of clams and potatoes. Delicious! The crab dinner was great! Great service and friendly staff. We arrived within an hour of their closing but didn't feel rushed.

Just simple and really good, fresh seafood. The place is a bit bare bones for decor but it seems right for a lunch cafe. Summer dining is outdoors but along a busy highway. They need to hide it from the cars somehow. We eat inside! This place is casual, kid friendly, local.

Family and friends stopped here for an early dinner. Despite the name this isn't a BBQ joint, but it does have the freshest of seafood. There's not much atmosphere...it's a fish market after all but the service, food and beer were very good. I especially liked the Backyard B-B-Q Sandwich. Again, don't expect pulled pork. It's salmon, and it's really... More

We were visiting the island and found this to be an awesome seafood place, better than most. The fish and chips, smoked salmon and dungess crab were all excellent.

The menu is very tempting for a fish eater. It was so good we ate there two nites in a row. Staff is very friendly and prices are very reasonable. We will definitely go back should we visit the island again.

Sorry to add a "no" to the list of others here. I seriously wondered if I was eating at the same place as some of the positive reviews. We ate here on the recommendation of some locals on a Sat night. Called ahead and got a reservation for two. Had no idea how important THAT would be! On arrival, the... More

We've only been to Oak Harbor twice, and eaten at Seabolts both times. Very casual and friendly atmosphere, good for families. Feels busy and a little rushed if you happen to get a table right at the door at a time when there are a lot of pick up and take away orders, or folks waiting for a table. But... More

Visiting the area and locals recommended Seabolts. Came in and stood at the wait to be seated sign and was ignored for a while. Clam Chowder was pretty good. Over all I agree with others that said it was okay. Nothing to rave about. Kind of disappointed.

They have good cooked seafood but you can also get fresh fish, clams, and crabs. They smoke fish as well and it is very good too. They usually have fresh salmon but this last time it was fresh frozen?

The seafood is incredibly fresh and delicious. We couldn't decide what to have, so we had the Captain's platter. Everything was really good. It was so much food that we took most of it home and had a couple more meals. The restaurant is small but comfy. We did not try the smoked salmon but we will definitely try it... More
