Perfect Spot for Sunset Dining

San Clemente Pier is the ideal location for casual patio dining. The view of the ocean, beach and sunset is as good as it gets, and the food is consistently good. It's the type of place that is loved equally by locals who come frequently for a nice date or friends spot, and tourists looking for a... read more

They continue to have a great Happy Hour food and drink specials from Monday to Friday. Our favorite is the Monday special of two large Italian sausages, onions, peppers, pasta and focaccia for $4.00. All their weekly specials are $4. Monday specials will change to chili and hot dogs during football season. Two obstacles are finding a parking space and... More

We noticed this restaurant had many mixed reviewed but we were close by so we decided to try it one evening. We had the halibut and chowder. We were seated promptly outside on the deck. The waiter was kind and efficient and both the Halibut and the chowder were excellent. We had no complaints at all. We would definately return... More

Visited with out of town family for the view. The lack of reservations makes it tricky to coordinate seating for 8. Everyone delighted on the seafood and atmosphere. A constitutional after dinner on the pier is a plus.

While staying in the Capistrano Beach area, we wandered a few miles south on the PCH - which turns into El Camino Real - to this restaurant adjacent to the fishing pier in San Clemente. The oysters were very fresh and the daily catch, ono was nicely grilled and prepared. Having a waitstaff-person form the Boston area (and, Legal Seafoods... More

Great food- I love the seafood salad! And fish n chips! You are sitting right over the breaking waves on the pier. Early bird dinner is a great value, too. Get there early if you don't want to wait. This app,use to lunch and dinner!
