Friendly service and tasty food

The she-crab soup is fantastic! The setting is picturesque and everyone was very friendly. It's a great place to get a good meal in a comfortably casual spot.

My family and I went to Pelican's Perch for dinner in 2013. On their marquee it read "ALL YOU CAN EAT CRAB LEGS". It was packed when we arrived. We had about a 45 minute wait and during that time we had a conversation with the hostess taking names. We talked about how my hubby couldn't wait to eat the... More

We travel to OIB often and haven't tried Pelican's Perch yet, but with all out favorites closed for the season - we have it a shot. And we are happy we did!! The Pelicans dip is fantastic! Tender beef and the perfect amount of cheese. The onion rings were fantastic. They were really great about working with our kids too.... More

I believe it caught the staff off guard as we were quickly sat at a table and drinks were fast, the food took quite a while (about 45 minutes... More

If you want to grab a bite for lunch and take your little four footed critter along, the Pelicans Perch is great. They brought water and a dog biscuit out for Stuart, our French Bulldog as soon as we got there. Their food for humans was tasty and the service was super. They are right in the middle of what's...

My wife and I went there for lunch. We should have left when we met the waitress. She clearly did not want to be there or serving us. I ordered a hamburger and my wife the roast beef with dip. How can you screw up a hamburger? The roast beef was nasty greasy on a hard stale roll. I did... More

Stopped in here the day after Thanksgiving. Not an ocean view, but the she crab soup was fabulous, as was my husband's hamburger. Service was super nice. Would definitely go here again.
