(M-F 4-7pm) The HAPPY HOUR menu WAS $3 pints on draft beers, now its $5 pints! I can understand if $5 pints pay for a Beach/ Sunset view --but... More

I was traveling through California and arrived Can Clemente late in afternoon, got a nice room at Hampton Inn & Suites and was just looking for some food and a couple of beer before bedtime. OC Tavern is located a couple of blocks from the hotel and I walked in. I’m not a sport guy so all the televisions and... More

We loved it here. Terrific food. Ate here several times and never had a bad meal/service. They do have TV's with sports playing so it can be a bit noisy but overall nice atmosphere.

I'm local to OC Tavern and visit once every few months. They have a great happy hour with tacos, chicken tenders, wings, and the like. There are a few drink specials for beer and cocktails. They have a room dedicated to betting on horse races which is always a fun time. My husband's 10 year high-school reunion after party was... More

Great place with delicious food at a reasonable price. Service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. The entertainment and OTB were added bonuses for me and my buddies.
