Fun evening with friends with good food and music! We arrived in time to have dinner prior to the music starting. We had a chance to talk through drinks, starters and dinner. Timing was great and we weren't rushed by the staff. The Sticky Finger Ribs as a starter could have served as dinner (as our waiter told us) but they were delicious and a huge portion to share.
Love the environment & food here! Always good & friendly service!
Drinks were not great - margaritas were too sweet and mojitos were tasteless but the bartender was very responsive and redid the drinks for us. Dining servers were good. Food was average but so were prices. Portions were large - just nothing special.
Drove up from m San Diego to meet friends down from Newport. Worth the drive, without a doubt: good food, great service, reasonable prices. Do it.
May be ok for drinks or burgers. Our food was poor quality. Noticed the table next to us did not eat much of their food and overheard them saying food was not good.
The food here is quite good. The ambience where we sat by the fireplace is lovely and there are beautiful paintings by local artists all over the walls, no matter where you sit. If you like live music it starts around eight pm in the bar. Service is also top notch. A great place to take a date, or to celebrate!
Casual restaurant with a fairly diverse and creative menu. Food is well prepared. Service is very good. Excellent place for a casual meal, either lunch or dinner.
It was good, the sticky ribs are a little to much though, especially because they drown your crispy fries into them.... WHICH MAKES THEM VERY SOGGY AND TASTE LIKE HAWAIIAN Teriyaki SAUCE, which is gross...
So great! Really good strong drinks

Food was bland. Not surely what other reviewers are here, but our meal was really poor. Restaurant half full should have been our first clue. Too many other good options in downtown San Clemente.
We happened upon this restaurant while on vacation and liked it so much that we ate here twice during our one week stay. The food was very good, with an interesting selection of dishes. Our waiter was very attentive and remembered us from the first time. We also enjoyed the lively atmosphere.
The menu has changed and they don't have many of the fish or steak and pasta dishes they were known for. The menu is more basic American casual than the finer dining prices
The entire meal and service was great but the homemade s’mores dessert was phenomenal.
The kitchen was very, very busy but it seemed to take an extremely long time to get our food. The food was well-prepared. Service was pleasant but it's never great to be seated right next to the serving/seating station. Would request a seat further into the restaurant space in the future.
Great place to sit outside and enjoy friends and the food choices are perfect for a group
awesome as always! We miss Matt our favorite bartender, drinks just aren't the same but other than that, great food and the owners are fantastic people!
We were pleasantly surpised by the bar scene, and some yummy sea food. The surf ambiance was also fun. Great place for a group of friends for a family dinner.
We ordered drinks and the blue cheese potato chip appetizer which were both very good. For dinner we split the blue cheese wedge salad and the pork chops. Both were excellent. And the s’mores for dessert. Service was attentive. We are new to the area and will definitely put this on our “go to” list for dining out.
It was my husband's birthday! The service and food were excellent! We had a party of 8 and they seated us in the outdoor patio which was perfect! Highly recommend this place and we will definitively be back!
We visited from Boston and took a chance based on reviews. We absolutely loved this restaurant! We sat on the patio next to heaters and ate a delicious meal with great drinks and friendly, professional service!
My family used to frequent this restaurant years ago, and I was really looking forward to going back, however my food was sub par. Unfortunately the chicken dish I ordered came out extremely overdone, almost inedible. The accompanying rice pilaf was okay, a bit bland though, as were the other vegetables. Both drinks we ordered tasted watered down and didnt really taste like they actually had anything noted in the descriptions. We were sitting very close to the band so it was quite loud and difficult to talk, but I would say in some aspects that is part of the charm of Beachfire. The appetizers ordered were good but to me did not make up for the very overdone main dish. Overall quite a disappointing experience, I am not opposed to going back but I will likely choose something else first.
After a bit of a rough start attempting to move two tables together so we could fit all 5 of us at one table on the patio, we had a nice lunch. Food was mixed up but quickly remedied. Service was good and the chicken avo melt was tasty. I got it with a salad instead of fries and would have preferred the salad before the sandwich rather than on the same plate. The salad was very tasty. We would go back.
Have eaten here on several occasions and it's always been grest food and great service. Good menu, something for everyone. Their french fries are the best!
Will keep coming back.
Cozy and inviting atmosphere, good menu, service was excellent food was better than expected. Nice patio. Glad we found this place!
Service fantastic but food and ambience was fair. Place looks a little more tired than I remember.
What a great place! We will be back over and over!
Live music was phenomenal !
We enjoyed a nice lunch of ceviche tostadas, seafood linguine and a blackened salmon salad.
We were here a few months ago and had a superb dinner and a better seating area. This time we had the same entree and although it was very good it was not as awesome as before. Also we didn't like the booth we were given although ok. Service was superb!
We actually went the day prior for lunch & just needed to come back! Amazing waiters & amazing food. Thank you guys!
Great little find in the middle of downtown. Just make sure you have the waiter wipe down the table because the food is finger licking good. You and all that eat before you will be making a mess cause the food need to get from plate to food so fast.
The table shared the sticky ribs which is why the table gets so sticky. One of the best appetizers i have had from any restaurant.
The fish and chips are fresh and the Caribbean skirt steak is very flavorful and tender.
BeachFire never disappoints. Service is always great, along with outstanding food!
We made a reservation for 7:30 p.m. Last Sunday evening because some out-of-town guests really wanted to go to Beachfire. We had wanted to eat around 6:30 but 7:30 was the earliest reservation we could get. The San Clemente Fiesta was going on in the street in front of the restaurant so we walked to avoid parking problems. Much to our surprise, the restaurant was closed when we arrived at 7:25! The doors were locked caked, chairs were stacked up on side and no note on the door. We did not receive a phone call, email or text from the restaurant stating that they would be closed. This is extremely poor customer service. If you want to eat here, I would suggest that you call to confirm that they will actually be open
Our meal was quite tasty and our server was very good. However, we were very uncomfortable with where we were seated. There were many other open tables, but the manager said everything was full and we couldn't change tables. When we left the restaurant, there were still many other open tables. We tried to speak to the manager quietly and politely about the situation, but he was extremely rude. He said he was the owner and could do and say whatever he wanted with his restaurant. He was extremely loud and angry, a little scary in fact. We will never return to this restaurant after being treated this way, and we will never recommend this restaurant to anyone else.
Great music, good food. Kids menu and food great value very large portions.
Beginning with the hostess that showed us to our table, to the end when we paid the bill, everything was great! Everyone was so friendly, the food was delicious and our waiter, Adam, took good care of us.
It was great
On a weekend get away, we looked at other restaurants but couldn't get in, our reservation was for 6:45pm we asked and they took us 1 hour earlier! Great location, great food, very tasty, cocktails were spot on and we were given a great seat on balcony. Highly recommend this one.
Really fun neighborhood Gem. Terrific lunch spot...sit outside. Great food.
Staff was shorthanded. Took 45 minutes to get a lunch order and it wasn't that busy.
