“Lunch on the beach does get much better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Yesterday we had a lovely lunch sitting on the "bar side" watching the surfers enjoy the San Clemente waves. Atmosphere can not be better. Food was OK and service very friendly. Summers are hard to get a table as the tourists take over the San Clemente ocean front.

“Consistantly fabulous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I take all my visitors here from all over the country....the only restaurant I know of on the coast where you sit with the waves crashing under your table, watching the surfers, the Cormorants and enjoying the great food, what could be better.....have been going there for years and hope to continue for many more.

“Spectacular dinner and fireworks on the 4th of July!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Just imagine eating a 7 course gourmet meal- sitting on the pier above the crashing waves- while watching a 1st class fireworks show! All this to Patriotic music. The Camp Pendleton Marines started the evening off with the Color Guard and the singing of the National Anthem! A wonderful evening was provided at the Fisherman.
