Good food

We arrived to OIB late one evening so there were not a lot of food options. Considering Pelicans Perch was a sports bar and had live music, the food was better than expected. I had a crab cake sandwich that was huge and had minimal filler. I also had mac&cheese on the side and it was delicious.

We are residents of Ocean Isle and have been to this restaurant on one other occasion. My husband and I ate there today. We ordered a cheese steak to share because we were not that hungry. At $9.99, I felt that it was overpriced but whatever. When our check arrived, I saw that we were charged a $4.00 plate sharing... More

Not a good experience one of many we had on this trip with eateries. Took over an hour to get our food and the manager only offered a 10% discount. I didn't want to argue so we took it but the meal should have been free along with everyone else in there that waited forever. Excuse was got backed up... More

Super slow service, food basic and $$. One large group ahead of us. Created huge logjam for remainder of afternoon. Sides are basic and seasoning masks all real flavor.

We were hesitant to eat here. After no signs of what to do when we walked in we ended up seating ourselves. We watched several customers distressed waiting for some kind of service. The owner actually came out and spoke to a table beside us because they were so upset with there service. We waited 20 minutes without a waiter... More

The service was really slow but the food was excellent! after about 20 minutes we were told they were out of mozzarella for our appatizer so we ordered fish bites. They were delicious but we got them with our meal.

Their special the other day was a meatball sandwich, and it was one of the best I have ever had. My son had chicken tenders, and they were excellent, not the frozen kind normally served. The location is great within walking distance from the inn's and the center of town.

We go to OIB a lot and its nice to have a meal without leaving the island. Pelican's Perch is not fancy, but they have good food for a reasonable price. If you are looking for fancy 5 course meals or linen table cloths, then this is not the place for you. They have good sandwiches and daily specials along... More

The service was horrible. Our waitress was not very attentive. It took a long time to get our food even though there were only four or five other patrons. The food was ok.
