Lunch near Bolsa Chica

I'm taking some Texans birding at Bolsa Chica in a couple of weeks, and we need a place for lunch afterwards. One is in a wheelchair, so I don't want to deal with the Huntington Beach Pier area on a Saturday, something casual and kind of out of the way would be fine.

  1. Check out the menu at Red Table. It's a gastropub / wine type of place in Huntington Harbour. Very near the wetlands. A little on the pricier side.

    Olive Pit is a short drive on Bolsa Chica Blvd. For Greek food, it's a great choice.

    Heading north on PCH, you can try Taco Surf for the fried fish tacos. It's otherwise a red sauce-and-yellow-cheese type of gringo-Mex restaurant, but I'm fond of the fish tacos.

      1. Fish Camp in Sunset Beach is casual with fresh fish and easy access. It is on PCH but should not be as crowded as near the pier.

          Right on the water between Long Beach and Seal Beach.

          Casual, wheelchair ADA, great food, fantastic view.

          1. Brix in Sunset Beach is a good call.

            1. birding at bolsa is one of my favorite sunday afternoon activities. we usually head for The Abbey in Seal Beach afterward. Wedge salad and a craft beer! love that place.

              1. I took a group to Blackboard Bistro in Seal Beach (right on PCH) and it was a hit - generous sandwiches, fresh salads, good service. Nothing fancy, but a comfortable place that seems to know how to do simple things fairly well.

                  Thanks every body, I think it's going to be Fish Camp. We're going this coming Saturday, I'll report afterwards.

                    i've also had good food at blackboard bistro. very diner-ish menu, but well done.
