I strongly wanted to write a positive review on this before I went because of the positive reviews I read on TripAdvisor. The server (Barbara) was very nice and sat us at a nice table. She gave us pita bread that I didn't care much for but I thought oh well I'm not hear for the free bread. I ordered... More

My parents and I ate dinner here on our last night, all of our meals were excellent. My dad enjoyed the clam bake, it was a lot of food, good value. I enjoyed the special of the night, which was rockfish, definitely the best meal of our vacation.

We chose this restaurant based on the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not fail to deliver. If you enjoy Bloody Mary's, definitely try the Drunken Crab appetizer. The house salad is a separate charge ($5%), but well worth it.

Lunch today at the Black Pelican was great. Had the Chopped Mediterranean Salad, which I'm wanting every time I come to Kitty Hawk! Large platter piled with cool crispy Romaine, crumbled feta, pepperoni, kalamata olives, Roma tomatoes, and peppercini peppers in lite vinaigrette. Alongside are wedges of flatbread brushed in garlic olive oil,topped with feta, minced peppercini , and then... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ramada Plaza Hotel for a wedding this past weekend. I wasn't feeling very good at the end of the trip so we wanted to grab some take out at a restaurant! I didn't get a chance to go in the restaurant BUT THE FOOD WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! Cannot express enough how... More

The Black Pelican is a very popular dining spot even in the off season of October. Unfortunately they do not take reservations, so you take your chances on how long you will have to wait to dine. Of course the seafood is fresh, perfectly prepared and service is very good, BUT that said, it is a very loud venue, with... More

I ordered mine Medium Rare, came out Medium but did not send it back as waiter was nowhere to be found. He did bring us bread half way thru the meal. The... More

We get to OBX about every other year. We come in Spring or late Fall. Traffic is down and things are much calmer then during the Summer months. The Black Pelican is still busy but not crowded. The food is always good and the wait staff is always friendly. It's refreshing eat a nice quiet lunch or dinner in a... More

Went there to try because of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Food was absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend the crab and shrimp dish. Service was excellent and only 30 minute wait on a Sunday night wasn't bad!
