“Sunset Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We arrived early to enjoy the sunset menu, which offers discount prices. We had a great table outside to watch the sunset and surfers. The food was good, but know that you pay for the real estate here.

“Great location on the pier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This is a fun place and the view can't be beat. The steamed clams are great here. The bar is across the pier and has great drinks and appetizers.

“Great food, great view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

My wife and I sat on the deck overlooking the ocean and had an outstanding view while we ate dinner. The food here was great, I had a perfectly grilled steak and she had seafood. Highly recommend this place; we sat on the left side of the pier as you're walking down versus the right side where the bar is......it was great. The only downside was it was expensive, but we expected that and were ok with it.

“Great View, Fair Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We go here quite often, mainly to relax and watch the sunsets.
The Bar side is open seating, and it can be a challenge getting a table, especially around sunset.
The Calamari and Dungeness Crab are great, as well as the Clam Chowder.
The service can be a little slow, but we're OK with it, lots of very young waitstaff, and they are trying.
The Dinner side has indoor/outdoor sitting, try the Salmon and you won't be sorry.
Bucket of Clams, a split dinner is all you need for two!
We locals love our Fisherman Restaurant...you will too!

“Terrific atmosphere, so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Living in San Clemente we enjoy taking our visitors from out of town to Fischerman's. The food is average, especially for the price, but there is nothing like sitting right above the ocean on the pier. We have recently been going to the bar side to get simple fare, burgers and a glass of wine. Their burgers are fine. There are better food choices in SC, Nicks and South of Nicks are my favorites.
