the bar serves food across from the main dining restaurant and has happy hour specials. specials run about $4, but you must buy a drink with them and that can run up the price to not so special. we have had dinner there twice this stay and loved it. had the clam chowder and bbq chicken salad both times and...

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.

We sat outside, what a great place, lovely view, the food was amazing and the price reasonable, we went for lunch. We had great service and it was fast. The bathroom is just a few feet away in the other part of the restaurant, not any further than if you were in a large restaurant and much closer than if... More

Food is ok - nothing to write home about - drinks are good - but the location and view bring us back over and over and over again - a wonderful spot for a drink and lunch or apps - especially watching the sunset as the surfers run the waves just in front of you

Awesome food (the breaded Salmon or Fish n' Chips r 2 die for,) fast friendly service, and the view... That part will leave you speechless. The only draw back is it does get busy (because it is so popular and delicious,) and the rest room facilities are in a different building, but if you just remember that ahead of time,... More

Being vegetarian I couldn't eat most of what is on the menu, the one vegetarian dish they offer is a pasta and it was ok, but definitely not worth the price. The main entrees come with a salad which is extremely small. Service was fairly disappointing, our waiter took a break midway through our dinner and the waitress who relieved... More

When you enter the Fisherman's Restaurant at the beginning of the famous San ClementePier, run, don't walk, to the hostess station and ask for Deren to wait on your table. Late yesterday afternoon, he added so much to my daughter's twenty-fourth birthday dinner. His humor, his sincerity and his meal recommendations enabled our celebration to be a pleasant success.
