food and apps are great but the happy hour drinks are buttkickers. Good seafood but awesome fisherman's chowder in the big round sour dough bread. The trestles is my fave drink.

We took the Amtrak Train from Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles to San Clemente, where it stops right at the Pier! It was a few steps to the Pier entrance and Fisherman's Restaurant, and you're at the Beach!

Arrived for lunch on Friday - 15 min wait which is no problem when you can walk the pier. Waiter excellent, food excellent, atmosphere excellent. Worth the 1 hour drive. House wine very palatable and would order again. Heartily recommend. We'll be back.

We went there for lunch on a Wednesday and were seated immediately. The food was yummy (good selection), the service was great, and we definitely would go back. The only downside is that you have to park in a pay lot ($1.50 per hour) and...More

The outside sitting has a great view. The menu satisfies every picky appetite. The fish is great no matterwhich one you order. The icecream mud pie is huge and to die for. It is enough for 4 people. Very relaxing environment.

Unbeatable outdoor atmosphere surpasses both the service and food quality. A bit overpriced but with an exception of the daily feast deals. But fish was overcooked and sides lack luster. I'd skip for dinner and do cocktails and apps instead on the opposite side. Happy...More

I was disappointed in the food this time. All the orders of fish came to the table over cooked. The fish had a good flavor but each of our orders were over cooked including the shrimp, halibut and salmon, everything was simply over cooked. I...More

I don't believe it is. However, the coastal trial is right below the restaurant, and IS dog-friendly. It's a great way to spend pre-dinner or a post dinner/happy hour walk. Make sure to head north if you want to... More
I need to know where your parking is. If it is not close, can Uber drop off close by. I have a disability that prevents long walks. Thanks, Dave
