Love the location, local hang out with friends. Usually we eat in the bar on the pier. Pricey, small portions but good food. Fish n Chips, Seafood Salad, Mahi Sandwich were all very good. Lunch time is busy, but just relax enjoy the view. Have to do this once!

The menu is extremely limited and it is very noisy. Out of the 8 utensils that we received, i think maybe 2 were somewhat clean. Almost every fork had actual food stuck to it. I ordered a tuna salad and it did not test fresh at all. The sourdough bread was good though. The actual restaurant side might be better... More

Nice views of the pacific ocean and fresh seafood. Sits right on the pier with great views. Outdoor seating also. Great bread and we had fresh halibut fish and chips and halibut filet that were excellent.

Great food with a view. There are two restaurants next to each other at end of pier; one more upscale. Consistently good food and service.

On the San Clemente pier, I expected something "touristy" and average. Was very pleasantly surprised with the selection and quality of the food. Seafood chowder, clam chowder both excellent, with lots of recognizable fish and clams present in both. Our table had the salmon, seared ahi and ahi in a fruity teriyaki sauce. All perfectly prepared and presented. Service was... More

We ate here for dinner during happy hour and for lunch the next day and enjoyed it both times. For the number of people the serve here they do a good job with the food and service although as mentioned by others it can be a bit slow. Really enjoyed the late lunch of clam chowder and the sandwich I... More

We were only in San Clemente for 2 days and still ate here 3 times! Breakfast was basic, dinner was delicious and the bar snacks were delightful! The location is the best part - right on the pier with spectacular views of the Pacific.

The bar is right on the pier, over the ocean. Fantastic views from every seat outdoors. Good basic dinner specials for $3 at happy hour with purchase of a drink. The clam chowder bowl is good, filling, and a great bargain. The drinks are good too. The service is famously slow, but that lets you stay to enjoy the view... More
