What a great way to end a 4+ mile walk on the San Clemente Beach Trail. The staff is incredible. The food choices are great and we love the champagne mimosas.

Nothing can compare to sitting out on the balcony at Fisherman's having a glass of wine and a cup of Clam Chowder! You will watch the waves and the surfers riding the waves! This is life at its best!

Great view, great service. Good food. Reasonable price. I enjoy coming here. Whenever I am in San Clemente I go to the Fisherman. The bar has wonderful Happy Hour prices. Sunsets at the Fisherman are particularly special.

We had a family get together which comprised of 11 adults and 2 kids (4 years & 22 months). They have 2 buildings, one side is the bar and the other side is the restaurant. We sat in the restaurant area and as it was early (5.30pm) there was plenty of room. We also managed to get their sunset menu... More

We went here for lunch on a beautiful end of December Thursday. We were fortunate to secure a table with an ocean view. We ordered fish and chips and enjoyed a leisurely lunch watching the surfers and the activity around the pier. The food was fresh and was perfect for the beautiful sunny day at the beach. We found parking... More

Any restaurant on a pier is going to be a tourist trap, and this was no exception, especially in a small community like San Clemente. The restaurant is split on both sides of the pier - one side the oyster bar and the other the main restaurant. We were there for a family reunion with kids and had to wait... More

We were just waiting for our train, not that hungry, but had to order something. Good food. Great service. Shared 1 dessert and it was such an enormous portion--too much for 2 people.

If you're looking for a good restaurant on the pier this is a good one. Food is good, not great, but the view in unbeatable. It was pretty chilly for Cali the day we visited, but we still sat outdoors because they have heaters. My breakfast was ok, I had the French toast, nothing to write home about, but my... More

Went to the Fisherman's restaurant on the pier for dinner. We ate in the Oyster bar lounge and had wonderful oysters, salmon, shrimp and clam chowder. Everything was extremely fresh and tasty. The next day we had lunch on the restaurant side and I had sea bass which was very flaky and had a nice creamy texture. We will certainly... More
