A great place to have drinks and appetizers while enjoying the sunset. The oyster bar(on the right of the pier) offers some nice happy hour specials($1.00 oysters!) and a front row seat to enjoy the sunset.

I love to try new places when I travel and it's a double bonus when it's good food and location in one! Casual place for drinks and a meal. I had the Ono fish with rice pilaf and seafood chowder. It was hard to choose! They had a good selection of fresh seafood, burgers, pasta, etc. We went at lunch... More

Came on a friends recommendation. Definitely a great choice had the clam chowder and salmon tacos which were delicious. Nice view of the ocean and sunset.

Not the greatest food but a great view. Our kids like us to take them when they visit us. Decent seafood - good selection. Chowder is also pretty solid. Had the muscles as an appetizer last trip and they were very good. We prefer the restaurant versus the bar when dining - we do go to he bar for a... More

Lovely view of the ocean and sunset. Casual spot for dinner and drinks. Beach trail runs past the restaurant and people like to walk out on the pier to look for whales and dolphins as well. Surfer viewing is easy from the outdoor restaurant. Waves roll in beneath the floor of the restaurant.

The location is very good on San Clemente pier, the patio seating facing ocean is awesome. First of all, their service is very slow so considered to take a long lunch there. Second, I guess restaurant on pier does not mean their seafood is very good. We ordered fresh oysters and bucket of clams. The clams were ok, its meat... More

This is one of the best places to have a drink or two with a bucket of clams and enjoy the roaring ocean sounds and waves right under you. Lovely setting. Food isn't the tastiest but enjoy their cocktails very much especially the famous MaiTai. More of a casual setting perfect for sunset happy hour to start off!!

While traveling on vacation, I met some friends here for lunch and enjoyed it so much I returned a few days later with my husband. The location can't be beat - on the beach, at the base of the pier, and right off the pretty center of San Clemente. The menu is broad, the food great and the service excellent!... More
