“Great Location”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This restaurant is located right on the peir in San Clemente. The food is good but the location is amazing. This is a great place to dine anytime of the day. You can watch the surfers in the bay or watch the amazing SC sunsets. Parking can be a challenge during the summer months.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Stopped at Fisherman's on our way from San Diego to Los Angeles. Excellent choice! The restaurant sits right on the water at the pier in San Clemente. On one side of the pier is their Oyster Bar and the other side is their full service restaurant. We ate outside at the restaurant. I had the White Sea Bass and my husband had the oysters au gratin. Both were excellent choices. We also had the clam chowder and the fish chowder. I normally don't eat the clam chowder, but wanted to try this. I was not disappointed. If you are in the area, we would highly recommend stopping at Fisherman's. Well worth the visit!

“Relaxing atmosphere, good food, friendly staff”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

The food was very good, the view beautiful, and the prices reasonable. The waitress was very polite, telling us "you're welcome" rather than "no problem" when we thanked her. We also heard one of the other employees say "please" to a co-worker. The pleasant staff added to our enjoyment. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Always, consistently excellent food!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

The two restaurants (same company) are consistently superb. The seafood is always fresh. We eat oyster shoots every time and they have to be fresh or they're yucko. We live in the area and come here often. It's one of our top three restaurants in the entire area, and probably is number one or two. Have been going here regularly for many years, actually, since they first opened.
