On this date in 1977, the following ad ran in the Long Beach Independent.
Before Ruby’s Diner and long after the scintillators were removed, Fisherman’s Wharf Restaurant served food at the end of the Seal Beach Pier, including an enticing Friday choice between a fish dinner or a spaghetti dinner for only $ 2.95 complete.
Forty years later, nothing is being served on the Seal Beach pier but a depressing view of the charred remains of a once prime dining spot in Seal Beach. A fire gutted the end of the pier on May 20, 2016, and it has yet to be repaired or rebuilt.
