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.

After a day driving along the coast and visiting viewpoints, the Pelican Pub provided the best location to sit and relax while enjoying a beer and lunch. Did I mention the view was awesome, right on the beach.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Lincoln City. We always try to hit a few brewpubs while on vacation. I have to say that the scenery here is breathtaking. A great lunch followed by a stroll on the beach made for an excellent combination. We started our meal by sharing a bowl of clam... More

Wonderful view, near the tide pools make it convenient! Great food, but the tofu was a little spongy the first time around, and after the waiters helper found out we had send something back, for a few moments, she was not as nice and peppy as she was before... then it went back to glad! The waiter seemed a little... More
