Unbeatable outdoor atmosphere surpasses both the service and food quality. A bit overpriced but with an exception of the daily feast deals. But fish was overcooked and sides lack luster. I'd skip for dinner and do cocktails and apps instead on the opposite side. Happy hour had great deals but very popular so get there early.

I was disappointed in the food this time. All the orders of fish came to the table over cooked. The fish had a good flavor but each of our orders were over cooked including the shrimp, halibut and salmon, everything was simply over cooked. I brought it up to our server who became very defensive so we moved on.

Fisherman's Restaurant has been a favorite for us when we are in the San Clemente area. Fun outdoor dining at the base of the pier, friendly service, and wonderful food. Try the fisherman's chowder... mixed seafood in a delicious tomato base. Hubby had his usual, the standard fish and chips, and I ate my favorite dish, the seafood melt. Great sourdough bread comes with your meal, and we were comped a huge slice of mud pie since we were celebrating birthdays and an anniversary. For those wanting that "California beach experience," it doesn't get much better than Fisherman's Restaurant.

We decided to enjoy a Saturday morning breakfast on pier. We were able to get a table outside but there were only a few left when we arrived at about 9am. Were were staying across the street so parking wasn't a problem. There was plenty of shade and we started with a good cup of coffee. Our server was friendly and attentive. Each person ordered a different dish and not only was everyone satisfied with the ample amount of food but the very tasty fresh ingredients were a pleasant surprise for "beach" food. Pleasant surprise and tasty food.
