It's the only bar & restaurant on the San Clemente Pier... Great Happy Hour and good seafood and burgers. Very solid fare... Food is a B+/A-, which is pretty good in my book. Epic views of the ocean, surfers and the action on the Beach!!! Fun for dinner when you sit out on the deck at high tide ... The... More

My wife and I along with another couple enjoyed a fantastic dinner. I had the scallops & my wife had the halibut. 5 stars on the meals. Server, Tatiana, was extremely attentive and very professional. We will definitely be back the next time we're in town.

The seafood was fresh and well-cooked. One of our party had the halibut and chips which he enjoyed. I had a salmon burger which was kind of bland. Another of our party had a salad with crab which she really enjoyed. My husband really enjoyed the calamari sandwich he had. The service was good despite the fact that the restaurant... More

We sat at a table right on waters edge for sunset and enjoyed a list of appetizers that did not disappoint. There are 2 Fisherman's locations next door to one another. The one on the right is more casual and is the bar...but you can get the same food as in the restaurant which is next door. Very busy on... More

Fisherman's sits on both sides of the pier, the restaurant on the south side and the bar on the north. The bar offers amazing happy hour deals as well as other more casual "bar food" along with a full bar and over the ocean seating! That's even better than ocean front! The restaurant also has the outdoor, on ocean seating... More

Have eaten Chipino all over the country and this seafood dish was very good. Yes it is not cheap and there will probably be a wait. But how many places can you go and here the water breaking and have good food.

My boyfriend and I ate here twice during our visit. The have great cocktails. The food is good, not the best, but their outdoor seating is very nice. We were right on the water once during sunset (which was beautiful) and another time during the evening. It was a little chilly that night but there are heaters. Only complaint is... More

Whether you're in the actual restaurant on the left (looking oceanward) or the bar on the right, the views and atmosphere are great. I've been going there for years and will continue going there as it is just a great place to unwind and watch the sunset. The restaurant food is mediocre though I must confess its been a couple...

Famous for its fish menu, views of the Pacific and the very fishy decor, This is a well run operation. We had it recommended, found metered parking and got there for breakfast when it was only slightly crowded. I ordered my favorite steel-cut oats ($8) which came with a good mix of fresh fruit (an option). The good-looking staff shares... More

Location Location Location! This place was amazing for the ocean views. I picked it from Yelp for being a seafood restaurant right on the water. Everything was perfect and only lost a star because the food didn't seem to have much seasoning at all. Still very good. We were in time for the 'early bird' menu. My prawns were $20... More
