great music

Either sit for some excellent food or just stay for the music and drinks. A truly enjoyable evening. The prices are very fair and the service is good but sometimes it can get a little crowded

What a fun restaurant! The interior is hip and eclectic and they have a few seats outside the bar at the sidewalk as well as a patio out back. We had a fabulous lunch on the patio consisting of an ahi tartare, shrimp tacos, avocado, bacon, cheese chicken melt, sweet potato fries, and house salad. Everything was super fresh, tasty,... More

We were walking by Beach afire and the hosts were very persuasive in asking us to join them. The menu looked great and we thought we'd give it a try. The food was phenomenal. Caribbean Skirt Steak, shrimp and steak skewers, and avocado chicken sandwich were our choices for the night. All prepared perfectly and served to us in our... More

First our request for a quiet booth when we made our reservation was honored, something many eateries fail to do! We had the flat bread appetizer which was delicious; my husband thoroughly enjoyed his BBQ chicken salad and I could dine on the Josh's Chicken every day. I would definitely return here to dine again!

Appetizers included ceviche tostados and pulled pork sliders. They were quite tasty. The service and atmosphere were great and they had a nice IPA from a local microbrewery, Left Coast that was very good.

San Clemente has no shortage of restaurants & BF is one of the good ones. Service was good, food was great & ambiance was nice. Inside up on the walls local artists show of their skills & works are available for sale. In the back, a decent sized patio w/ modern metal torches a nice touch after dark. The food... More

After a day of shopping and sightseeing, it was time to end the day with an adult beverage. This place not only has ice cold beer but the menu is enough to be dinner. Hubby got ribs -- very tasty and the portions were large enough for him to take some home. I got the cheese burger and that was... More

Stopped for a quick bite before a show at the Cabrillo Theatre. We had excellent service with a young and knowledgeable waitress. Started with an order of coconut shrimp. Huge split prawns do we easily shared. I enjoyed the Ahi a Tuna sandwich and my husband loved his fish tacos. For dessert we tried one of their coffee drinks. Did... More

We stopped for lunch at Beach Fire at the recommendation of our Marine son. He has great tastes in restaurants! All the food was fresh and delicious. They have a great sense of serving good Mexican food with a California twist. We recommend the Shrimp and Lobster Tacos and the cheese burger with the teriyaki sauce. Everything was great! The...
