A favorite!

Breakfast at Fisherman's was basically a weekend ritual while living in the area, so during our recent visit back, it was a must on our list. The food and service is just as great and of course the views are unbeatable. We've enjoyed many meals at Fisherman's and no matter what time of day, it is... read more

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. The restaurant is right on the San Clemente pier. Considering it was also Easter we did not have a long wait. The halibut was outstanding and my husband said you could cut their steak with a butter knife. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The average dinner price was between 25.00 and... More

I went to the oyster bar three days in a row. I had the Cottons which is similar to a Mai Tai. Delicious. 7.50. 9.50 if they hand pour it. Oysters are 1.00 and Shrimp 1.25 during happy hour. Starts at 4 pm. Clam chowder was also very good. I will be back.

Took some visitors from Ohio to down to the San Clemente Pier. We decided to stay and eat at the restaurant, as it is right on the pier and the surf underneath makes it an awesome setting. It had been a while since we had eaten at the restaurant and remembered the food was not fabulous, but adequate and a... More

Fisherman's never lets the diner down. Great food, service and views from the deck. Inside a window table is also great if one does not want the cool Pacific breezes. Fresh fish at it's finest. The bar/lounge on the side of the wharf is fun also with the happy hour specials and food for under $5.00 per person.

Enjoyed sitting outside at this pier side restaurant. Our food was very good. Husband enjoyed his fish and chips. I had Fried Prawns which were very good. My only complaint is that the cocktail sauce could have been a little spicier. Our wait staff (Tyler - I believe) was very pleasant and attentive. Watched the sunset from the pier as... More

The food is expensive, but it is very good. The location is obviously great, and the views are awesome! It can get very crowded and difficult to find a table, but it is worth working that out to enjoy a nice meal on the pier.

The beautiful view from the San Clemente pier is lovely but the food is below average. I ordered the calamari steak and it was pounded to the thinness of a piece of paper, therefore it was easily overcooked and that made it very tough to eat. The wait staff wears shorts that are so short you can see the bottoms... More

Stunning view of the ocean. We only eat at the bar and sit outside, usually to watch sunset and enjoy happy hour.

Location! Location! Location! Fisherman's Restaurant is located on the San Clemente Pier overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The fish is fresh with a menu that offers many seafood choices, but we knew what we were looking for when we walked in...fresh, briny oysters and we found them. Sitting at the bar with... More
