What better way is there to have a good time after a long, hard day of work than with a drink out on the water? Fisherman’s Restaurant & Bar offers that and much more. The restaurant has a Sunset Happy Hour that customers can enjoy from 4 to 7 p.m. on weekdays, including an always running special of $1 oysters, $8 margaritas on Thursdays, and $8 Long Island iced teas on Fridays.

It only makes sense to find the best beer selection in San Clemente at the brewery that is firmly planted in its local roots. Lost Winds Brewing Company offers at least 18 different beers on tap, with more than a few hometown-inspired brews. Taste a Trail 6 Belgian blonde for something a little lighter, clean and crisp with fruit flavors, or dip deeper into a San O stout with tastes of roasted malt and chocolate.

Restaurant patrons head to The Cellar and expect to find wines that they can’t find at other places, as well as some varietals that are maybe not the norm at most restaurants, says manager Dylan Churchill. San Clemente is “a Mexican restaurant-heavy town and there’s only a couple places that you can get good wine, and I think we crush it with an eclectic list,” Churchill says.
