Fisherman's Restaurant has been a favorite for us when we are in the San Clemente area. Fun outdoor dining at the base of the pier, friendly service, and wonderful food. Try the fisherman's chowder... mixed seafood in a delicious tomato base. Hubby had his usual, the standard fish and chips, and I ate my favorite dish, the seafood melt. Great... More

We decided to enjoy a Saturday morning breakfast on pier. We were able to get a table outside but there were only a few left when we arrived at about 9am. Were were staying across the street so parking wasn't a problem. There was plenty of shade and we started with a good cup of coffee. Our server was friendly... More

This long time San Clemente institution has the most envious location (right on the pier), that any seafood restaurant would kill for. It is actually split into the main dinning room with highly desired outside tables, to the one side. The oyster bar is opposite, it has the restrooms, TV.s and, an out side eating area as well. Getting there,... More

There is nothing like sipping on a beer, downing fried shrimp, and listening to waves crash. My wife and I love hanging at Fisherman's, San Clemente Pier is truly and amazing place and Fisherman's takes the cake.

Got out of town guests or just want to eat while watching the surf or a sunset, check out the Fisherman's Restaurant on San Clemente Pier. Great chowder and daily specials too.

When in San Clemente CA go to the pier. When looking at the pier the Fisherman is at the base. On the left is the restaurant and the right is the Oyster Bar. The Oyster bar has the best view. It serves wonderful drinks and wonderful light food such as clam chowder, coconut shrimp, clam strips, hamburgers, etc. at a... More

We had been recommended this restaurant by our hotel reception and we looked at the menu whilst having a little walk around the seafront and along the pier. we both agreed this looked good and arrived in time to enjoy their Sunset Special, which simply offers a 3 course meal for $19. Now no great expectations for a meal at... More
