We visited for the first time expecting good food all around, based on reviews. Our appetizer, the shrimp and crab dip, was delish. The seafood for the main course was also good, but the sides accompanying each dish were disappointing. We had the fried flounder and shrimp, and the baked shrimp and crab. Each was accompanied by saffron rice and... More

Went to this place 23 years ago and loved it just as much on my recent trip! They have the history of the OBX plus any kind of food or drink that you may want! I didn't realize what I'd been missing! They have the BEST oven baked pizza that I have ever eaten! The staff were never standing still... More

Always good with fresh seafood and the best wood fired pizza around! The black and blue steak is wonderful and they have the best poppers around.

Our timeshare concierge suggested the Black Pelican and we really liked it. The food was good and so was the service. The building has some very interesting history (original wireless station where The Wright brother sent the message to their father of the first successful flight) attached to it that added to the experience.

I have never had a bad meal at The Pelican. Wait staff are friendly and take great care of their guests. The food is always excellent. This is my favorite place to be year round.

Stopped on a Monday evening and the place was busy. Sat at the bar and was well taken care of by attentive crew. Was going to try the Bangkok Shrimp but they had ran out so went for the Crab Rangoon and was very happy with that. Creamy cheese with crab inside of a fried crispy wonton with a sweet... More

My husband and I ate here while on a quick spring break trip to the Outer Banks area. He was craving a bucket of mixed seafood, and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The ambience is "old time beach seafood place", and the staff was very welcoming as we waited for our table - which was quick, even though... More

We ate here as a family and everyone enjoyed their meals very much. My son has some food allergies and they were very accommodating about checking ingredients. In our party we had pork, scallops, crab cakes and the steamer bucket and all were excellent. We splurged on dessert and that was a great choice. The Reese's cheesecake was terrific!! Others... More

Atmosphere is created beginning in the parking lot. Fishing traps, oars, ropes, nets and bouys set the stage. The lovely wood smoke smell from the pizza oven added to ambiance. Service was good during the late lunch hour. We had the Bangkok Shrimp and Greek Salmon and both were delicious. The relaxed reisling was lovely. The chairs are on the... More
