We didn't expect much when we saw the café. It looked just like a chack but boy was that a great place. Right on the beach with wonderful views of the river and ocean as well as a lot of sand.
I had fish and chips and the fish was my absolute favorite, halibut. Everything was so good.
Sitting in the sunshine eating great food while watching over the ocean. If you like that you have to go to River's End café.
Plenty of parking as well even if they cost a couple of dollars.

The atmosphere is all beach. The food is good and it is the only place with quick access and plenty of parking that allows you to enjoy your food and beer on the sand. Definitely worth a visit on a sunny day or a break on your bike ride.

And by on the beach, I mean sand between your toes, or at least right under the flooring. Food is good, service is friendly, and it is one of the few places around where you can dine with your dog.
During the winter months there is no dinner service,(it gets chilly when the sun goes down) so check first. Small indoor area, but most people want to sit outside and watch the windsurfers. Only eatery in Seal Beach directly on the water.

River's End is a great location for a quiet breakfast or lunch. Away from traffic and noise, fresh sea air, view is good for a sandy beach with a pier and offshore rigs. Menu is quite complete, quality of food is OK, service is always superb. Need to update or replace some of the outside dinning tables/chairs. All the other "Good" reviews are spot on. I visit monthly with a friend and always looking for a return visit.

Nice little beachside cafe that allows dogs in the outside area. Waitstaff was quick with drinks (and coffee refills) but the food took a good 20 minutes to arrive, and it wasn't particularly busy. We were happy it was so good we forgot how long it took to get to us.

Although not specifically gluten-free, the menu adapted well to our needs without any special requests.
