Just imagine eating a 7 course gourmet meal- sitting on the pier above the crashing waves- while watching a 1st class fireworks show! All this to Patriotic music. The Camp Pendleton Marines started the evening off with the Color Guard and the singing of the National Anthem! A wonderful evening was provided at the Fisherman.

Have been going to Fisherman's for a few years for July 4th. Not an easy ticket to get but so worth it. There is so much food and all fine quality that we ate many meals after the main event at home. We come with our own bottles of wine. There is a corkage fee. We started with a plate loaded with fish, shrimp, crab and oysters and then moved on to yummy chowder. Love that is it red and not white. A big salad that followed and then clams. Most those clams made it home for a second life with Spaghetti. We were a large group and everything ordered was great. I had the halibut which was wonderful and moist and huge. Another person at the table had crab and steak. Took crab home for next day lunch....and some of the steak. For a sea food place great steak. For this event every item on the menu was for 2 people. Finally strawberry shortcake. It was fab and so none of that made it into the to go bag. This is a fix price event. So do you get the idea that there was sooooooooo much food. Not cheap but ate on that meal for days. Service for a hectic event where everyone sits at one time was incredible hats off to our waitress!

We enjoyed a very nice dinner with family who reside in San Clemente. My husband works in the seafood restaurant business, knows his stuff, and we agreed this was good seafood. We had salmon and halibut dinners including huge, fresh salads. My husband also gave the thumbs up to the chowder. My uncle eats here regularly and swears by the calimari. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. And the location is right on San Clemente Pier with stunning views. A lovely dinner and we will happily return to this restaurant the next time we are in this beautiful area.

Went here with friends for happy hour on the deck! We scored the choice corner table on the deck. They have $1.00 appetizers..and we had a few of those. Got a bucket of mussels (not on happy hour) bottle of wine, pieces of smoked salmon and tuna. Enjoyable way to wind down the day! You can watch the surfers! Sunset wasn't great that night unfortunately. After dinner take a walk down the pier.

While the regular dinner choices can be a bit pricey, if you go between 4 pm and 6 pm Monday through Thursday, the sunset dinners are quite reasonable. We went on a Thursday and had the Sunset Dinner Catch of the Day. It consisted of a good-sized slab of yellowtail (fish), veggies, bread and ice cream.

The restaurant has a nice view of San Clemente beach.
