Good Food, Great View

We came here for dinner on a beautiful SoCal evening and were lucky enough to snag a table right by the side with an excellent view. Shortly after we were seated, we ordered our starters and drinks. The drinks were quick to arrive but the starter took a while to come. We asked about it, and the... read more

The food is inedible...please avoid... Not worth the view..we had drinks pina colada, strawberry daiquiri was good. Oyster bucket had no taste, taco shrimp and salmon was empty and cabbage was bitter, chips were over fried, and Cesar salad was like plastic......stay away

This restaurant did not disappoint! It's right on the pier so I thought it would be very touristy but the food was great with fantastic views of the water and action in the water. The prices were reasonable. I loved the bread and the margaritas!! I highly recommend.

Driving back to L.A. and stoped in to have dinner. The staff was so nice and real, you could talk to them as a good friend. The food was good too. I had the king crab legs and clam chowder. Good fun and a good view of the sunset.

We had lunch here on a recent trip to SoCal. The fish was fresh and well prepared, the drinks were good and cold and the service very efficient and friendly. It's right on the San Clemente Pier which is also a nice touch of atmosphere. Check it out!

Was just back at Little Fisherman's on the pier in San Clemente California and I can't believe I'm not here every week. The food is good, the prices are (specials) cheap, drinks are good, service is fast and friendly and the view is enough to come here even if nothing else was good...It's all good!!!

Fisherman's is right on the pier in San Clemente and has a great view of the ocean, the beach, and the hills of San Clemente. We stopped for drinks mid-afternoon and had a glass of wine, a beer and a bloody mary - and everyone was pleased with their drinks. We had an order of Coconut Shrimp to share and... More
