Simply cannot say enough about this fantastic place. Barry and his staff will make you feel so welcome. You may enter a stranger, but you will leave a regular. Great bar area, ample portions, great food, service is 5 star every day. And now they are open for breakfast on weekends. So much food my husband could not eat for the rest of the day! Our favorite local spot. We run into friends there and meet friends there. And you will be able to talk to your dining companions. It is a quiet spot. So if you are a rowdy group, you might want to choose the outdoor patio as the place is "reverent." A delight when compared to all the bistro type places that you have to scream at your dining partners. IMHO

This place used to be absolutely exceptional both food and service unfortunately the last couple of years have seen a decline across the board, service could be described as good but nothing outstanding food was good but again nothing outstanding, at this price point expectations are higher than what is currently being delivered at Patty's place it's unfortunate that is Seal Beach institution like this is simply not what it used to be.

Patty’s place is one of the few remaining real restaurants in Orange County. A gem! Excellent food, Excellent Service, Excellent Ambiance! It is a real thrill to be treated as if you are the only persons in the room. Real table cloths, full place settings, comfortable seating Top notch drinks. Wonderful menu. The salad forks are both cold on the tynes and warm on the handle. Great food. Oh did I say I like this place?

Dark and old fashioned. Seeing as how this is at Seal Beach I expected something light and beachy. It's dark, even in the day and has the ambiance of a mid-century steakhouse. The food was mid-century as well. It was tasty, but not at all what I was expecting.

Would have give 5 stars but we got the one table located in a not so great spot. Food excellent but a tad pricey. Steak salad is a great meal and well worth it. Great service. Out door dining is good in summer. Hendricks martinis and makers Manhattans were terrific

We really enjoy dining here and miss the opportunity to do so for lunch during the
week. We understand the reasons for the new hours but we miss the greater opportunity.
It was a pleasant St. Patty's Day. Juan, our server, is always a delight.

We had a reservation and were sat quickly at a very nice table. Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The food was exceptional, tasty, and looked beautiful. We were very satisfied with our choices of the sea bass and filet mignon, cooked and presented perfectly. Dessert was also delicious, we enjoyed the bread pudding. Overall had a wonderful evening and will definitely be back.

What a great find! Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. By the way..your Chilean Sea Bass is outstanding. It will keep me coming back. I was a bit bummed to sit in the bar area because it was pretty loud. Next team I definitely want to sit somewhere a bit quieter.

Really good food,cocktails,ambiance etc.I took my wife there for Valentine's dinner and it didn't disappoint.Only down side for us was having to listen to a guy sitting near to us complaining about the place being to pricey,in fact that he could have eaten 4 times at Outback for what he paid that night.Guess fine dinning isn't for everybody,but we overall enjoyed the evening and will return.

French onion soup was very good. The crab cakes were way to small. The filet was cooked to perfection....tasted was very good. Sides were skimpy, and tasteless. My wife's Swordfish was excellent, her sides were a bit better. Dessert was very good...Bread Pudding. Our dinner was good enough for us to return...I will try different sides next time.

Patty's is our local "special occasion" restaurant. Service and general ambience is always excellent. Patty's specializes in steak and there are few places that do steak as well but I had fish and while very good, it was what they do best.

Sorry to say, with the new ownership, the quality, service and presentation has diminished. The prime rib was warm (not hot), the twice baked potato ($9 extra) was cold, and the aujus was on the plate and the potato and vegetables were saturated in it. We expected more for the high prices for meals. We will frequent the bar, but will not dine there again.
