I called ahead to make a reservation and was told it wasn't necessary for lunch. Barry greeted us at the door and seated us in the best booth in the Bar. Yay! I ordered the Grilled Shrimp which are served over warm tortilla strips with melted cheese...major good. My friend ordered the Grilled Chicken and it was very good. We had a bottle of Rombauer Chardonnay and it was wonderful. We will keep this in mind as a regular lunch spot. By the way at 12:30 in the afternoon...the bar was hopping! Great Service and Food...

My Husband and I stopped by to have a small meal at the Bar. He ordered the Shrimp Scampi and it is the best I have ever had. I ordered the Throckmorton Salad and really enjoyed it. Chuck the Bartender does an excellent job there. Another fine experience at Patty's. This is a must when in Seal Beach. They do have discounted wines during Happy Hour from 4 to 6.

We hadn't been to Patty's since Patty sold the restaurant. We had heard mixed reviews but decided to give it a try. Prices are high, service is mediocre, quality of food prep is mediocre. Examples: we had $25 for corkage, which is okay. However all the server did was uncork the wine. We were there for almost 2 hours and server never poured a drop for us. Restaurant was nearly empty and the service was slow. Took 20 minutes to get salad and soup. Server said the French onion soup took a while to prepare. This was not traditional French onion with melted cheese on top. It was onion soup with a heap of coarsely shredded cheese on top which should not have been a big strain on kitchen resources. Salad greens were limp and warm. Steak appeared immediately after soup and salad was cleared. Steak was lukewarm and overcooked; slow salad and soup service probably led to a wait time for our entrée. Steak was high quality; at a price of $56 for a 10 oz steak we would expect high quality. What we didn't get was a good preparation of a quality piece of meat We don't plan to go back. High prices and mediocre food and service are not a winning combination.
