Really nice restaurant very close to freeway exits. The menu has a large selection of foods. We had lunch that was very good especially the clam chowder soup. The service was great and very prompt.

We are New Yorkers through and through and pride ourselves on knowing good pizza...the OC Taverns pizza was "off the hook" even for our standards. The nachos, burgers and salads were equally as awesome! Thx for a great experience we will for sure be back!

This is your typical local sports bar. Service was very good, plenty of tv's to watch. What they do do that is not typical is serve large portions, be prepared to get stuffed. You definitely get your moneys worth at this place. This place has lots of seating as well.

Was convinced by the server to get the pizza, when they found out I was originally from back east. Pleasantly surprised and will be back! Very authentic approach and not even a pizza place! But they have the best pizza in San Clemente for certain!

We had a very good meal here while staying overnight at Hampton Suites nearby. The service was friendly and the meals big and reasonably prices.

Tasty pizza, well made fried ravioli, the most watered down soft drink I think I've ever had. Their burrito was MASSIVE but, sadly, didn't taste as good as it looked. Lots of TV's and noise but it's a friendly multi-roomed place with a stage that's probably in great use over the weekend evenings. I liked our waiter and, in fact,... More

It was very clean and had lots of choices, while not too expensive. Loved the Turkey cobb sandwich. Very good service and the outside seating was very clean.

This is a decent place, not great, not bad, just decent. The service was really slow to start and then became steady as time progressed. The beer was reasonably priced on happy hour and the selection included local to the region, local from the US, and then some import. I had two local beers - an IPA and a red... More

We opted to try OC Tavern after a long drive to Cali. Taco salad was excellent and husband's burger was excellent as well. Chili was amazing! We were expecting a small bowl of chili, but it was a meal in itself. Staff was friendly and a gentleman who I believe to be a manager stopped by our table to see... More
