Good Food And A Great Location

Our party of five had dinner the other night at Fisherman’s Restaurant San Clemente. The restaurant is located on two sides of the San Clemente Pier just about at the shore break. The view and location is great and you can watch Amtrak roll by. Prices are fair and reasonable. The salad, clams... read more

Food was just ok and kind of pricey for dinner. But let's not kid ourselves, what you are paying for here is the atmosphere-eating outside with the ocean waves crashing below you. That was kinda cool. But don't expect to be wowed by the cuisine.

Loved the delicious food we had. The server, Leela, provided us great service and always helped before we even knew we needed it. Had 4 kids and she was smart enough to bring out kids food before our food came out. This allowed us to get their plates ready and get them eating. Then we could focus on our delicious... More

The location is really the selling point for Fishermans. The food is not that great but the location is convenient. FYI they have great happy hour menu items and meals on the Bar side.

My husband and I went to the 'Bar' side of the pier last Friday and had a great time. We sat right over the water, our waitress was friendly/great, and we really enjoyed our drinks and food. I had the cream clam chowder in the bread bowl and my husband had a salad. We topped it off with the largest... More

THIS is the place to watch a sunset! What a beautiful view! Friday night they had 2 fish tacos (at a taco bar) for $4! WOW! Plus a couple of beers and the sunset and it was beautiful! It was a wee bit windy, so that can be a bit of a problem, just be sure to bring a jacket!... More

We all had very good meals. The calamari steak was excellent and so was the sea bass. The service was also very good. Nice atmosphere

I wish they would overhaul their menu or at least attempt to sell something better than decent besides the view which is epic. As a local you can only hope that a restaurant named the Fisherman would be able to nail their seafood dishes. Been here a few times mostly with out of town guests. Had a bowl of their... More

The food was excellent and the atmosphere, being right on the pier and, was fantastic. This is a great place to go! Great "Date Place" and with the warmer weather and longer days coming ... a perfect place to "just chill" and enjoy.
