Fresh seafood

Fresh seafood served simply while the waves break on the beach under your table. Great location and good staff

Had lunch with a friend and the menu is fantastic. Great choices of fresh seafood from the mesquite grill. I ordered the Sea Bass and my friend ordered the Halibut. Both were excellent. Their hot sour dough bread is outstanding! The service was fast, friendly, and efficient. We sat outside in the shade. You can sit further out on the... More

What can I say? Great location at the entrance to the San Clemente pier, great seafood, attentive staff and the prices are reasonable too. While Fisherman's has something for everyone, if you love seafood, this is the place to go. While they don't take reservations, table turnover is pretty fast. I was there for Mother's Day brunch and we were... More

We had dinner there the night before Father's Day. I had steak and my husband and father-in-law had fish. My steak was cooked to perfection and their fish was delicious. (I tried a little piece,)

My husband and I ate here on a recommendation from a friend on a short road trip we took in May. We had a beautiful view of the beach from our table outside. The service was excellent and the food was good, not amazing. I had expected it to be outstanding but it was just ok. We both had the... More

The drinks are very good and the food is better than just okay, but the main reason we love it here is to relax to the sound of the surf and enjoy the sunset on a balmy Southern California evening!

Can't beat the view, location or the atmosphere! The food is pretty darn good too on the Oyster Bar side. The restaurant side could be better... Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I've been coming here for years, it was one of my brother's favorite places to visit when he was still alive, so it obviously holds a special... More

Everyone always mentions the location and although it is the best, I think the staff at the Fisherman made the experience terrific. Our waitress was very accommodating and attentive. The fish portions were much better than other fish restaurants in the area. We all had a great time and would go back again.

We come here every birthday and it's always a great experience. The bar is a better choice since great happy hour and daily food special until 7:00, most drink from $4, bucket of clams and mussels is yum, fresh oyster for a buck! Tend to get crowded esp after 6. Service is a little slow never the less there's nothing... More
