We had happy hour at OC Tavern last night. I had forgotten how good their street tacos are. We'll do that again soon!

Great place off the freeway and close to the Hampton Inn if you happen to be staying there. I was able to walk to this place for a bite to eat. It was a great local spot with a great atmosphere and food.

Ate late night dinner here. Family had Cobb salad and Turkey burgers. Typical bar food. Fast, friendly service. Reasonably priced. Loud bar atmosphere. Multiple sports televisions.

Really nice restaurant very close to freeway exits. The menu has a large selection of foods. We had lunch that was very good especially the clam chowder soup. The service was great and very prompt.

We are New Yorkers through and through and pride ourselves on knowing good pizza...the OC Taverns pizza was "off the hook" even for our standards. The nachos, burgers and salads were equally as awesome! Thx for a great experience we will for sure be back!

This is your typical local sports bar. Service was very good, plenty of tv's to watch. What they do do that is not typical is serve large portions, be prepared to get stuffed. You definitely get your moneys worth at this place. This place has lots of seating as well.

Was convinced by the server to get the pizza, when they found out I was originally from back east. Pleasantly surprised and will be back! Very authentic approach and not even a pizza place! But they have the best pizza in San Clemente for certain!

We had a very good meal here while staying overnight at Hampton Suites nearby. The service was friendly and the meals big and reasonably prices.
