The place seemed like it was filled with both locals and tourists which made my friends and I think we picked the right place for dinner. And our instincts were right. A little loud because of the energetic staff and people, but nothing that would detract from your meal. Our waitress was friendly, professional and prompt. Food came quickly and... More

The weekend of January 17-18, 2015, we ate lunch there twice. Both times we had the "Baskets" that feature oysters, clams, flounder shrimp or scallops. One time we had the oysters and they were fried to perfection! The next time we had the flounder and it too was great. Both of these baskets were under $11.00, including hot, fresh fries... More

We chose Black Pelican because we wanted seafood and being off season our choices were very limited. The reviews for this place were high and the parking lot was packed so we thought we couldn't go wrong. Well, after a 25 minute wait, which with small children seemed much longer, we were seated in a table in the very back... More

Had a great dinner at the Black Pelican last nigh. Being off season, we were able to walk right in and be seated. Surprised at how crowded it was for off season. This was our first visit but we will most certainly return. Service was great & the food was excellent. We ordered the Frogmore Clambake for Two. It was... More

I am a big fan of the Black Pelican...on this visit, however, the service was a bit lacking...had to wait for drink refills and the bread came at the same time as the app, which i thought was strange timing....and the servers were very busy on their cell phones!!!! Our food was yummy as usual!

Ate there on New Years day, food was enjoyed by all. Just a short walk to the beach when waiting for food. Gift shop is a nice added feature. Certainly no shortage of people welcoming in the new year. When will be back when visiting the timeshare this year.

On one of our frequent trips to the Outer Banks, we noticed a seafood place in Kitty Hawk that we decided to check out for lunch. I could not locate the place on TripAdvisor, but found Black Pelican to be well reviewed and highly rated. We went there and were not disappointed. The only negatives were that rather small clams...

My wife and I were referred here by friends/locals, and we were not disappointed. We arrived on a Sunday evening, and we were seated within 5 minutes. The menu selections were great, and I selected the crab cakes with risotto and green beans (real lump crabmeat, no detectable overuse of fillers, and HUGE). My wife ordered the fired cheese pizza,...
