320 Main is an exceptional place to get mixed drinks and the only place that they are getting dinged on my ratings is on their (beer) selection. Not to say that the beer selection is bad, because that is not the case. It is just a small selection of 6 handles, but they do go out of their way to make it a solid 6 beers. I just don't think that anybody is going to go here thinking that it is specifically a "beer destination" and I don't think that the owners would think of themselves in that way either. What makes this place great is that if you are in Seal Beach with people who want a solid drink selection (far beyond most bars), then this is the place to go and know that you will still have 6 great beers to choose from. They have an excellent happy hour on select drinks, wines, beers and appetizers. I have not yet had a full meal here, but each appetizer has been excellent.

Ultimately, for people reading this on Beer Advocate, unless it is a Monday when Beachwood is closed, it would be hard to say that 320 Main is going to be the best beer stop on Main Street. But if you have a crowd that requires hard alcohol drinks and really wants them done right, then this is the place and you can rest assured that your beer needs will be more than satisfied even with the smaller selection.

320 Main in Seal Beach California is a wonderful steak and seafood restaurant with a classy atmosphere and full bar inside, and a small patio in front. Although it is primarily focused on cocktail revival (their cocktails are very well made standards and new variations) 320 Main has a strong beer selection (think Stone, Lagunitas, Oskar Blues, Avery, Chimay, etc.) with 6 beers on tap and a few bottled selections.
Happy Hour!!!
The Lunch Special, and Happy Hour are why I keep going back. Also, a few day of the week are special days (local night, 5$ cocktails, etc). Their lunch special goes from 11:00am to 3:00pm and is 10$ for a half french dip with a few choices of meat, a draft beer and a side. Happy Hour has a list of 6 or 7 appetizers for 4$ as well as 4$ draft beers and well drinks.
I put the value as reasonable because of their specials and happy hour, dinner I would probably put at $$$, as dishes are around 20-30$ and appetizers are 10-15$.
