Beach Fire is a great option when hanging out on Del Mar in San Clemente. It's less expensive than some of the restaurants in the neighborhood, but definitely has great food. The blackened Ahi tacos are superb and the Buffalo Cauliflower is an excellent appetizer....More

Good quality food and some live music in the front in the evenings. Dependable, good service and a great spot for the downtown location and back terrance if it is warm.
