“Wonderful Dining Experience”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

The views from this restaurant perched on the pier are spectacular and drew us to eat here. Service was friendly and prompt and large cold beers very refreshing on a hot day. The food was yummy, we had the Chinese chicken salad and the fried salmon. Kids also enjoyed their kid's meals. We all enjoyed our visit to San Clemente, such a pretty place, and the meal at Fisherman's was the cherry on the top.

“Good View Average Food”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The pier location is of course the draw. Don't sit by the door. Better in the off season, but the food is just average.

“Great View Good Food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Had a window seat and enjoyed the beautiful view and sunset. Excellent wine list.Enjoyed the the wine and warm sour dough bread . The clam chowder was delicious but the main course wasn't anything special good but not the best seafood I ever had but I would go back again just for the view.

“Halibut Fish & Chips the Equal of Any Restaurant on the Coast”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We ate on the dining room side; outside with the waves rolling in is just marvelous. My wife thought the halibut fish & chips the equal of the best on the coast, even comparable to the Spinaker in Sausalito. I had a Hess Chardonay, with the Chinese Chicken Salad - delicious.
Service for us was prompt, and for a full house at lunch all the servers were hustling. We could not see how anyone could write a negative review.

“Great food on the SC pier”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Highly recommended - great view of the surfers, great hamburgers and fish'n'chips, great Mud Pie, great local ale. Very friendly service. Always busy so if you have to wait it is worth it. Best to sit outside - they have heaters when it is coolish. The only place to eat on the San Clemente Pier.
