The outdoor patio off the bar at this restaurant on the San Clemente Pier is a great place to relax, unwind, plus enjoy delicious drinks and good food. The service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Although we were there on a weekend, the weekday Happy Hour looked even more appealing.

We wanted a restaurant with a view and spotted Fisherman's right at the start of the pier. Went in and asked for a table and Hostess said just to seat ourselves. That was fine. We took a table right at the edge. We were literally looking right down on the waves and surfers. Could've sat here all day long. Our server Rachel E. was very friendly and attentive. Service was excellent. I had a dozen raw oysters on the half shell and a calamari sandwich both were really good. The horseradish sauce was the hottest I've ever had so go easy on it. There were a lot of pigeons hanging around so if pigeons gross you out this may not be your place. Overall I thought the place was excellent and I'd definitely return.

This is a place you take visitors from outside of Ca. They will remember it forever. You are on the San Clemente pier probably sitting outside with miles of beach on either side. It is what most of the world thinks California really looks like at the beach. The food is acceptable/OK but not at all why you went there. It is also good as a getaway for yourself from freeways, crowds etc. Great little bar on one side.

Sunday afternoon we walked the beach path to Fisherman’s for a delicious fish dinner. I had halibut, my husband chose the swordfish. Both were fresh in that day and excellent. Service was good ans sunset was sublime. Our favorite place to meet friends or simply enjoy dinner with a spectacular view.

Absolutely wonderful lunch on the water. We were driving and exploring the area on a off work day and wanted a waterfront place for lunch. Found Fisherman's based on TripAdvisor and were very happy. Enjoyed it so much we went back for lunch a couple of days later. Location is right on the water - you can't get any closer to the water without being on a boat; they have both inside and outside seating; service is friendly and prompt; food is very good; not gourmet certainly but very good and certainly better than your average beachside restaurant.
