Amazing location and on a beautiful day sitting outside on the deck watching the ocean and surfers play in the water! Having some great Chowder and Sourdough is just nearly perfect. The coconut crusted prawns was amazing too. Love this restaurant.

We went to this restaurant around sunset and the view was tremendous; it also has a great ambiance and is a well-heated and comfortable place to linger after sundown.

The food was very average overall. Stay clear of the calamari! It was some of the worst we’ve had in recent experience. It was far too hard and they use way too much batter and breading. The clam chowder is good, very typical. The wedge salad is also good, but has a ceiling categorically. And the fish and chips are decent. Aside from the calamari, everything was what you would expect it to be, not bad, but not very memorable. Next time we’re in San Clemente we’ll try other restaurants, no reasons to return here.

Great restaurant! The location can’t be beat, on the pier in San Clemente overlooking the ocean....you can take in a delicious lunch with the crashing waves as a backdrop. The menu features a variety of starters, sandwiches, and entrees. Seafood definitely dominates the menu and includes quite a lineup from coconut shrimp, a real winner, mahi, calamari, ahi tuna, and my favorite fish tacos. I’m here visiting for a week and have already dined
here twice. So go ahead and head down there....you’ll be joining all the other smiley faces!

On recent trip to San Clemente we had the opportunity to eat at both restaurants (they are right across from each other at the entrance of the San Clemente Pier). One side is great for bar food and drinks while experiencing the great views and the other is more of a all around menu for breakfast, lunch and dinners with the same great views.

Tough to beat the location, on the San Clemente pier. Watched a beautiful sunset during dinner. Had an early special on so prices were reasonable. Food was ok if somewhat bland, typical of what I have experienced in similar locations... don’t have to serve great food to draw in the crowd.
