When we were there, half of the restaurant was for hostess-seating and half was first-come-first-served. If there's a wait for hostess seating, be sure to check out the other side. We enjoyed our lunches, and the drink specials looked delicious and great prices. The view was really nice and although it was a bit windy walking around, the walls of... More

Had dinner outside over the waves on a cool night but lots of heaters helped. Salmon and mahi for dinner was great. Server let me substitute chowder for potatoes, since reviews raved about it. Ok but a little thick. This is a restaurant with lots of volume every day. Appreciated server telling us which seafood was fresh that day.

Have eaten at this restaurant several times as well as their Oyster Bar. Weather permitting outdoor seating is preferable. The view is incredible. The food is reasonably priced, not terribly original, but good. The servers are friendly and efficient.

We neglected to visit this place due to the barrage of tourists that frequent the area. Not a solid idea on our part, as the food is quite good with reasonable prices to match. The setting is among the best, whether it be on cloudy or sunny days.

Very popular restaurant with great views, food, and drinks. The outdoor seating is the best. What's not to love about watching the surf while enjoying a meal with friends or family. Great service, wonderful place.

Great food and drinks. Variety of seating spots. Heat lamps if needed. Service is top notch. Children welcome lots of things to see and point notice at with a friend from outdoor seating.. Walk down the pier hand and hand after a great meal. Food could be eaten there or taken back to your room. Sunday breakfast a real experience... More

Beautiful place for a sunset dinner. To make it even better, there is a special menu from 4-6pm (and it includes dessert!) good food.

This is a good seafood restaurant with an ocean view. There are two restaurants on separate sides of the San Clemente Pier. The one we like has open seating, just grab a table when some one leaves. The place is always busy and bar may be a little noisy.
