“Enjoyed the pier and the restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Liked the fact that you could have dinner or a drink and an appetizer or all three. There wasn't a long line and the oysters were fresh as was the smoked fish.

“Good Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This pier has good views of San Clemente and the surrounding area. Parking can be a little tough. Give yourself about 45 minutes to an hour, longer if you plan to fish or go crazy with pictures.

“Jewel on the California coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This beach is not as crowded as others, but we like it that way. The restaurant is great and there is plenty of things to do that will keep you busy without the crowds.

“There is a popular restaurrant on the pier that is decided by the pier walkway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Be prepared for the Coast commuter train that runs along the coast between the parking lot and Del Mar businesses and the beach/pier. Kids love seeing it.
