Brought my granddaughter here, she wanted to sit on the patio. We enjoyed a Chicago deep,dish pizza, it was fantastic! I loved the wine as well.

I have been here several times - both for their lunch specials and for dinner with family and friends. The staff is always accommodating and friendly. Good beers to go with the pizza. There are a few tables on an outside patio facing Del Mar - fun people watching.

They are playing a little loose with the truth here. This is not deep dish pizza nor is it Chicago style and, well, it's not that good either. It is more like a thick crust from Pizza Hut than it is good pizza. Not sure what people are raving about.

We make an annual trek to San Clemente to visit family and Selma's is a must stop. The atmosphere is cozy and the outside tables remind me of a European cafe. The menu choices are varied and numerous. The service is great. We especially like the deep dish vegetarian pesto pizza which is excellent. It's not on the menu but we order the chicken pesto deep dish and tell them to hold the chicken. Yummy. The beer is good too.

First..Great location. Outside is much better than a dark gloomy interior.
Service usually slow and very incompetent. This is the training ground for every first time restaurant employee.
You can usually find the staff huddled in the near the kitchen, eating, drinking and generally screwing around.
We have even had an entire try of drinks spilled on to laps..Basically an incompetent wait staff. The food is fair.
The pizza is not good. The sandwiches are much better. Cheap house beer on tap is the best deal in town. The lunch specials are usually OK.They hide that menu and you have to ask for it or look at it out front on the board.
All you can eat soup and salad is usually very good. On Friday they limit the excellent clam chowed.
To sum up, the service usually is crappy, waiters and servers and runners are slow on everything. This could be a real gem with some decent management and training.
