With five award-winning beers available on tap and bottled year-round, you'll never be disappointed. But we make it our mission to always have some extra seasonal or one-off beers on tap to keep things interesting. Schedule a brewery tour to learn more. « less

The server, Joseph, was wonderful at explaining the menu and the beer. I had the beer flight and liked them all. My friend and I shared a salad and the calamari. The vinaigrette dressing is wonderful and we even asked for the recipe, which was given to us. The calamari was good, but could have been hotter. Otherwise, the view... More

Stopped by on our way to Newport for lunch with the family. Considering that the quality of the food and beer (their own craft brews) were so good it was really disappointing that the service was so bad. The server couldn't answer simple questions related to the menu, we were never offered refills on soda or water and she also... More

Even rain couldn't mar the view from our window booth. I had a great burger with crumbled Bleu cheese, crispy fries and a Summer Surfers ale. My friend had clam chowder and salad...she loves chowder and has it whenever possible. She said this chowder was light and flavorful with big chunks of clams. The salad wasn't the usual lettuce and... More

I love Cape Kiwanda beaches however the only reason I go to this pub is because it is the only one near the beach! Downsides include overpriced food(&beers) &no happy hour. Good points include outside area, clean bathrooms, gorgeous view & onion rings ( even though overpriced).

We went here as we traveled the coast and we were expecting a lot more. The view was beautiful and the restaurant was nice but the bathrooms needed attention desperately and the service was pretty slow for how empty the restaurant was. When the food came, it was good but not worth the price. We probably will not return.

Prices were CRAZY! Beer was the only thing priced fairly here. Onion rings, $17! Madness. We had some beer and went over to another place for food.

The setting for the restaurant is wonderful with a sweeping view of the ocean and Haystack Rock. The server was very good, but the food was a disappointment. Two of us ordered the Dungeness crab quiche which was tasteless. We added salt and pepper and asked for a wedge of lemon in hopes of improving the taste. The biscuits and... More

Our experience here was not good! We got drinks at the bar while waiting for our table so once we got our table thankfully we did at least have something to drink because it was over 20 minutes later when a waitress finally acknowledged that we were there!!!!! When she did, she was short and rushed, I had to ask... More

I wish I could give Pelican a raving review about their food, beer and service, but the 4 stars are for the view. I have been to this very busy spot numerous times with friends visiting the coast. Each time the food is average and very overpriced; service is s....l....o....w and the beer just okay. The incredible view of the... More

Great location, good food, good service in brew pub. The views can't be beat, and the location is a special one. Good places to stay, good restaurants, good shopping in the area.
