Sat on the patio, over the water, what a dream breakfast, so fun for our kids. Our server was terrific and loved breakfast for both the adults and kids.

The three of us stopped by to celebrate a friend's bday. It was just lovely --- the fish was fresh, the bread warm, the service attentive, and the Bloody Mary's had huge olives. We arrived at lunch time and were able to have our choice of seats.

I recently had lunch here. The service was excellent. The food was only okay. We only had appetizers so I can't speak for the whole menu. The shrimp cocktail was pre made and the shrimps were tough. The sauce watery. My mussels were not any better. Would not go back to eat if I am in San Clemente again. A... More

Great location right at the ocean. The food is good, but nothing beats drinking a cocktail while watching the sun set. Good service as well. I always make sure to go there at least once when in town.

I've make it a point to always stop at this eatery while in San Clemente and I have never been disappointed with food quality or service. The location on the pier is stellar for the view and surf watching. The halibut fish and chips are primo. The shrimp cocktail looks marvelous too. Give it a go!

Decided to walk from hotel to pier and decided to stop for something to eat. Glad we did. It was an overcast day so no sunset (even rained a little) but still a bad day at the beach is better than a good day at work! Had the clam chowder in sour dough which was really nice on a cool... More

We went to catch happy hour on the bar side of the establishment. We didn't score a waterside table but enjoyed people watching along the pier and some ocean view. They offer a $4 happy hour plate that varies by day. Ours was bbq chicken with potato salad and veges, a full plate with quarter chicken, quite tasty and certainly... More
