Beach Fire grill is a San Clemente staple. Consistently good food, great small bar and fun beach atmosphere. Appetizers are tasty and inventive and the entrees are fresh and a good value. For us it's a nice couples date night.

We found that good food options were a bit limited in the city of San Clemente! We stumbled upon Beach Fire on the last night and has a great meal! We tried the calamari, pork chops, burger and the beach plate-shrimp skewer, skirt steak skewer, rice! We would go back!

We recently visited beachfire our food was excellent. the waitstaff was very informative and attentive to our needs. We had several appetizers calamari and brussels sprouts which both were phenomenal. For entrées we had blackened salmon, macadamia crusted mahi and the beach fire Island plate Levi did an excellent job serving us. I would highly recommend trying the blackened salmon.

Staff were fantastic, welcoming and very friendly. Seated us immediately and took our drinks orders. Waiter was back for food orders five minutes later. Spot in timing, we didn't feel rushed and didn't have to wait for our order to be taken. Spot on. Portion sizes are huge. I struggled with the cheese burger and fries which isn't like me.... More

The ambience, the food, the decor and layout were all so enjoyable and our server was the greatest! Have to die for dessert: their homemade s'more - homemade graham cracker, homemade marshmallow that truly tasted roasted, and melted Belgian dark chocolate over the top with chopped pistachios. We would go there again if we didn't live in Colorado!

Stopped in for dinner on a early Sunday evening. Everyone was very friendly. We could hear the musician playing mellow rock classics in the bar. Oil paintings for sale on the walls were cool. My wife had the fish and chips. I had a cup of clam chowder and a chicken avocado melt. Everything was very tasty. With two drinks,... More

We went to have lunch. There was 6 adults, 1 baby. The waitress was not very accommodating to let us sit together. We put a couple of tables together and it worked fine. The food was good and drinks were delicious as well.

In the heart of the Del Mar street shopping district in San Clemente, the location is excellent. The place has many seating sections from the lively bar to dining rooms...we opted for the back patio which is a bit quieter. All the menu choices we made were great...they have a very big menu. There are a lot of Beach Fire... More
