Excellent experience. The cajun mahi mahi was perfect, a nice selection of wines. We sat outside and enjoyed the view and the waves crashing on the beach.

Four of us had an early lunch on the pier today. We were seated promptly on the deck over looking the ocean. It was an amazing view. My wife had the salmon burger, I had fish and chips and my son and daughter-in-law had clam chowder. We all commented on how delicious our food was. Our server was very friendly... More

Our favorite go-to spot to watch the sunset. Whether we're bringing out of town visitors or just our family this is always our first choice to have a drink and watch the sunset. It's self-service to find a table, which can be challenging -but somehow we always manage to find one overlooking the ocean. The bar menu is fun -... More

I was very pleasantly surprised as its odd to have a solid watering hole on a pier bring a solid fish based cuisine. The Ahi tuna was right on as was the beer selection and the view and vibe were rock star. The staff was a little young and lumpy but all else was solid. This is a solid stop... More

Took the family on the train to the San Clemente Pier. Weekend pass just $10.00 each round trip. Fisherman's Restaurant is right there on the pier so you don't have to walk far. We all love fish and had a nice lunch looking over the ocean. The fresh oysters and bucket of mussels were great and so were the bloody... More

My parents took my wife and I here to celebrate my dad's 75th birthday. He had a free birthday dinner certificate. I had shark for the first time in my life and it was pretty good. My parents had been here before. It wasn't that busy, it was a Tuesday night, but I was underwhelmed by the service. My glass... More

The seating is open. The popcorn shrimp and clam strips are very good. It's a casual atmosphere as there were pigeon's wandering around. Not cheap but considering the view and location, price was moderate.

We were pleased they were open on Christmas Eve, had been here three other times in the past 10 years, it's a great location. The food was just okay, nothing special at all. Clam Chowder was flavorless. Our kids loved the desserts.
