“Good Food, AWESOME Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2008

Fisherman's is located right on the pier in San Clemente. It was wonderful, really. The service was kind of slow, but it all worked out in the end. The seafood plates are HUGE. There are pasta and simple meat options for kids, too.

The teens also enjoyed watching the surfers from the pier. It was a great dining experience.

“Best place for PEI Mussels...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2008

We visited San Clemente at Christmas, 2007 and again in May, 2008. Both times we went to the pier at San Clememte for mussels. The restaurant is very busy, reservations are recommended. The service is fast and friendly, the drinks are great.
We usually go with family, so there is always a large group of us - typically 6 or 7 of us. Our large group is always accommodated quickly. Space is limited and it can be crowded at peak times.

We always order several buckets of fresh steamed mussels to start. They are awesome. The seafood on the menu is fresh and we have never had anything we didn't enjoy.

I recommend this as a must for anyone visiting the South Orange County area.
