We ate here several times over the course of our stay and particularly enjoyed the fish. Steamed fish with okra and tomatoes was very good. So was the escovitch fish and the mackerel. Callaloo with salt-fish was delicious, too. Don't forget the ackee and salt fish. It's a must-have. Curried goat was very good, too.

As Jamaicans now residing in the United States, it is always a pleasure to return home and always know that at Pelican Grill we will encounter wonderful people, great service and authentic Jamaican food at a very reasonable price! From breakfast to dinner everything is amazing! As for dessert... love the Pelican Rum Pudding!

We went there multiple times for breakfast. Great options and their breakfast potatoes and the fruit smoothies were particularly memorable. I would definitely go there again, if I ever visit Montego Bay again. The restaurant is also at a great location, right across from the water.

From the breakfast to lunch to dinner and alcoholic beverages, every dish was great... The Pelican is a 5 star restaurant... Just think at 11:00 pm we were having the best banana split in Montego Bay... We'll be back...

If you are staying in Montego Bay, and you have not eaten at the Pelican Restaurant, you are truly missing out on a wonderful dining experience. My husband and I have been going to Montego Bay for many years, and our first dinner is always breaded pork chops at the Pelican. They are consistently so delicious that my mouth is... More
