Worthy seafood in or near Dana Point/San Clemente?

adamclyde | Jul 30, 2013 04:37 PM

While I've done a bit of exploring around the new neighborhood in San Clemente, I can't say I've found (or looked that hard) for great seafood. I have some friends in town who are craving good seafood and wondering if anyone has recommendations? Anywhere in the scale is OK (from shack to quite upscale).

I've eyed the seafood place on the Pier in San Clemente, but if it's like most places of that ilk, the view is probably good, while the food suffers. But perhaps I shouldn't judge? Or what about Harbor House, the diner in Dana Point? I once heard someone say they had good seafood? Is that true? And I also saw a recommendation on here a while ago for the Surfin' Cowboy sports bar, that they had good calamari? I've driven past it, and while it hadn't previously been much of a thought, maybe it is worth a try?

But surely there must be other places, other than just Raya at the Ritz, right?

BTW, I have been to quite a few places in Laguna and Newport, which were quite good, but for this thread, I'm really trying to find stuff south of Laguna, and close to the water, hence Dana Point, Capo Beach and San Clemente...

Many thanks...
