Returning from San Diego to LA we decided to take a break and stumbled on Fishermans restaurant and bar. Great location on the pier/beach, fun happy hour, delicious drinks and oysters Rockefeller. Perfect way to spend the afternoon/evening.

The bar does get very busy at sunset and you can see why once you start to become mesmerising by the surfers. The bar us separate to the restaurant, there was a special on which seemed to be very popular. We enjoyed watching the beachside from the pier and would say it is stereotypical Californian.

We had a private, back corner table overlooking the beach, the ocean and a beautiful sunset. The atmosphere was very romantic, especially since this was our engagement dinner. Our waitress, Allie was cute and gave us good service, especially since she had another table which was unreasonably demanding. The food portions are large, so we split the Steak and Lobster....

I travel about 150 days per year and have the opportunity to eat out about 500 times. I really loved this restaurant. I can't say that I've eaten at any eating establishment that has a better view of the ocean and better atmosphere. Amazing! I was with a group of 8 people and everyone was satisfied. We started with wonderful... More

Was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. Clam chowder was one of the best I have ever had...not greasy, not salty, BIG chunks of clam. Fisherman's sampler was outstanding. Shrimp was a little over cooked but a wonderful assortment of seafood. Was a little taken back by the $4 extra charge for a baked potato w/ the works. Would have... More

The fish feast was massive. It's for 2 or more. You get steamers, salad, clam chowder then a hunk of fish (halibut or salmon or two others) plus rice and veggies and bread. I got a skewer of mesquite grilled shrimp, halibut and swordfish. It was good but not wow! I heard the chicken was good as well. The view... More
