We're in Dana Point on vacation and a local recommended this place. We decided to make the short drive to San Clemente and try it out. Unfortunately it was foggy out so there was no view. It didn't matter though because our meal was out of this world. Our waitress, Alexandria, was very friendly and took great care of us.... More

My adult son and I visited the San Clemente pier for the first time on January 30. We stopped into the Fishermans Bar after walking the pier. The bartender was disengaged, didn't smile, and was more focused on sticking the bar than interacting with customers. The worst was the argument we overheard(actually any of the surrounding area heard, as it... More

Went there on a Saturday evening to watch the sunset and have some drinks. Mussels are a huge bucket and enough for 2 to share. Clam chowder is always great, I tried the smoked salmon for the first time and it was very good

We have eaten here twice, once, indoors on a weeknight during their 4 - 6 p.m. special and once on the porch on a Saturday night. Both times the food was average and kind of generic but it was a much better value on the weekday. It is a very nice place to sit and watch the winter sunset.

Nice happy hour deals from 4 -7PM on weekdays. Drink specials plus a $4 daily meal. Thursday's were steak tacos with rice and beans. Make sure to put extra time on your parking meter as service can be leisurely. But don't worry, it's a beautiful spot to watch the waves , surfers and sunsets so take your time and enjoy.

The food here is good, but its really all about the drinks. Bloody Marys in the morning and Margaritas in the evening, sitting outside the Fisherman's and watching the sea and surfers is an unbeatable experience.

We always enjoy our meals at Fisherman's, whether in the restaurant or bar. We recently celebrated our 50th Anniversary there, along with our children and grandchildren.

Our server, Jenna, was great. Heavy fog enveloped the entire Pier so we wanted some good hot soup and warm lunch. The restaurant provided that and more. We were very happy with the food, service and ambiance.

The restaurant is located to the left and the Oyster Bar to the right as you step onto the San Clemente pier. Nice decks on both sides. Oyster Bar has free seating. We ate lunch there on a busy Sunday. Fish & chips on one side of the table and shrimps in a basket on the other. Both delicious. Lots... More
