The fish taco combo was fantastic. I was kind of disappointed because it seemed to take a long time, but the manager actually gave me a coupon for free taco later to make up for the long wait. They just earned a very happy, Long time customer.

Hard to say what's changed, but I don't LOVE Wahoos like I once did (been a customer since 1990). It's still a decent place for lunch, but somehow the quality seems to have dropped. Bummer. I hope they can turn things around.

I will admit that Wahoo's was our second choice for dinner in that our first choice in the same complex was closed due to water heater problems. It was our son-in-law's birthday and he got to pick the venue. The counter person was very friendly and upbeat. At Wahoo's you pick the protein that you want for your meal and... More

Conveniently located next to the movie theater, the fish tacos are wonderful. Also, the shrimp bowl is very good as the shrimp is spiced up a little. They serve you your food after you order. The environment is a beach scene. Great atmosphere, casual.

Passing through San Clemente and saw a Wahoo's so I had to stop for lunch. Been to others around SoCal, so I knew it would be good. I had the Wahoo's Bowl with fish filet, beans and rice. It was good but I've always had fish tacos before so this was a bit different.. Don't get me wrong, the fish... More

Haven't been to one in a couple of years and that was always the in South Laguna. This one was very disappointing. The fish was dry and looked like it had been sitting around for a while. We gave it an average only because the service was well run and worked hard. Don't see how I would ever repeat.

This is a FUN place. The decor and staff, everything spells HAPPY and have a good time. The food is NOT cheap, but it is delicious and I've been here a few times and every time the food has been great. Just a bit pricey. I guess because it is a tourist area and so close to the beach in... More

Wahoo's has a large menu choice. They even have a special vegan and gluten free menu. The fish is wild caught. Fish tacos are outstanding. They are full of vegetables and grilled fish. The sauce is great. Service is fast after you finally figure out what to order. The place is full of beach nostalgia. There are surf boards and... More

If you want a high quality, great tasting meal, please go to this restaurant. I'm from Arizona and have never seen this place. I had a Maui Steak bowl. There is a choice of rice and beans.
