Even a Family Guy loves a night out.
Seth MacFarlane stopped into Sugarfish in Santa Monica, Calif., just after 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday night for dinner.
Wearing jeans and a plaid button-down shirt, MacFarlane waited patiently inside for a table, agreeing to take a photo with two fans and chatting with them before sitting back down to continue waiting.
Roughly ten minutes later, the Oscar host was joined by an unidentified blonde and got up from his seat to greet her with a hug, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Although the pair immediately jumped into conversation, they "definitely appeared to be just friends," the source adds.
Once seated, MacFarlane dined mainly on sashimi and was "clearly enjoying himself." The two clinked their beers and chatted "non-stop" until their plates were cleared around 10:15 p.m.
But it wasn't before long, MacFarlane and his friend got up from the table to say their goodbyes.
"He chatted with a few employees and thanked them before holding the door for his friend as they made their way outside and to the nearby valet," the source adds.

The actress came out to the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Calif., to support her man, who performed during The 24 Hour Plays, presented by Montblanc.

Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow headed out to the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Calif., on Sunday afternoon to support filmmaker pal Bess Kargman at the premiere of the ballet documentary, First Position.
Willow was clad in a black and tan leather motorcycle jacket, worn over a print T-shirt and dark leggings with combat boots. The singer capped off her rock 'n' roll look with a pink mini-mohawk.
Although the mother-daughter duo didn't do any interviews, posing for photos must have worn Willow out, because according to an onlooker, "She looked bored and sleepy as she waited for her mom to catch up inside the theatre lobby."
Once inside the theatre, the Smith women kept a seemingly low profile, as they were joined by a couple of unrecognizable guests – one of whom complimented Jada on her appearance.
"Before the screening, Willow kept mostly quiet, while her mom chatted with one of the guests," the source says. "Willow checked her phone once when they first sat down, but otherwise kept it in her pocket. On a few occasions, Jada leaned in to whisper to Willow and kissed her twice on the cheek, but as the lights dimmed, Willow shyly pulled away."
