Great view!

Ate at the Oyster bar twice in 4 days. They have nice $4.00 Happy Hour meals which brings in a lot of people. I had their Bay Shrimp cocktail both times which was great. You can't beat the view, being right on the pier! Menu prices are decent and everything I saw people eating looked delicious.

I don't know if it can get much better than brunch on the pier. We sat outside on the patio and could see the coast, the ocean, the people, and listen to the waves. The basket of muffins they brought were delicious. I also liked my seafood Benedict. Very filling and good. I wouldn't say the food was memorable but... More

We actually ate at the oyster bar, which is on the other side of the pier from the sit-down restaurant. The food was fresh and outstanding. Had clam chowder, spicy tuna, calamari and oysters all shared among the table. Everything was great. Good beer selection too.

My girlfriend and I stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday. Parking is a challenge even at 2PM. We requested a table outside which is ocean view and they told us the wait would be 15 minutes~no problem. We wandered next door (same place) and had a delicious and really strong margarita and our ocean front (right on... More

As we enjoyed the beach and the pier we decided to have lunch. While the view was beautiful the food just okay. We ordered the fish/chips.

We are regulars at the Fisherman's restaurant. Their clam chowder and bucket of clams are the best we've ever had anywhere. The drinks are unique and I always look forward to my favorite drink "the Trestle" and my husband to their delicious Bloody Mary's. The atmosphere is beautiful and romantic. Even though we live in San Clemente, we just need... More

Delicious fish & cole slaw but I didn't care for the potatoes. When I was walking out I saw someone with regular French fries so next time I will order those. The view was great. Will definitely return.

I had delicious seafood salad, fried shrimp dinner, fish tacos, and cheese sandwiches. The restaurant is located on San Clemente pier which was entertaining for the children... More

Had dinner at Fisherman's restaurant last week and would definitely recommend it for the food and for the ambiance. The fish we had was well-seasoned, fresh, and cooked to perfection. The vegetables were not limp and overdone and the salad was crisp and tasty. There was an excellent wine selection -- mostly California wines -- available by the glass or... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. The restaurant is right on the San Clemente pier. Considering it was also Easter we did not have a long wait. The halibut was outstanding and my husband said you could cut their steak with a butter knife. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The average dinner price was between 25.00 and... More
