We ate in the restaurant on a Friday night. First they tried to seat 6 at a table for 5 then we had to wait longer for a table for 6. Took a long time for the food to come out and when it did, it was clear some of the food had sat getting cold while several dishes were... More

This place has great food, and great location. It's located at the entrance to the pier in San Clemente and it worth the walk. Fresh fish was great, calamari was excellent, the steamed clams were the best! They also have great desserts. Stop by pier to see the sunset and grab dinner after. It will be a great night!

The Poke appetizer was out of this world .. a definite delightful dance of flavors and textures! Will be back for this again and again! Pricy, but very much worth ordering. I had fresh Alaskan Halibit- excellent choice; Seafood Salad was enjoyed by my husband! Awesome!

Can't beat the view! Too bad you can't make reservations though... Your paying for the atmosphere of being on the ocean, but don't get your hopes up for the food, it's okay just not top quality. And the service is hit or miss, my wife and I live here and frequent Fisherman's regularly. And we've had some great servers, some... More

On the pier in San Clemente, this restaurant is actually 2 restaurants. One side of the pier has the oyster bar which serves full lunch and then appetizers after 4PM. We ate there again yesterday for dinner and had wonderful clam chowder, jumbo prawn shrimp and spinich salad. For a complete full dinner, on the other side of the pier... More

San Clemente's very best seaside establishment. They have a very nice happy hour there every day that should not be missed. Besides what not to like the views are outstanding. Nice selection of food and drink, excellent friendly service as well. Went there twice in three days, would go back again and definitely recommend it.

Fish was fishy and oysters were borderline dangerous! Kind of a dump on a pier! If they were anyplace else they would be out of business! Pier pretty but eat someplace else!

This is the best waterfront restaurant I have ever visited. You sit literally right over the breakers. You can eat a delicious meal and be right in the middle of the beach and ocean. Sitting outside is a must, and they have heat lamps on the deck. I love the verde sauce on the seafood. The clams and mussles are... More

Plus, the restaurant is perched right on the beach in San Clemente. Parking is sometimes difficult, particularly on weekends. Although the signs say the north side of the divided restaurant is an Oyster Bar it still serves the same terrific fish dishes. They serve a Fat Tire beer that is delicious. For lunch on a sunny day it was delightful.
