Not bad

Went here for lunch and was surprised. Has a nice outside eating area and the inside was light and airy. Was very clean and the service was great. The food was good too. Would go back.

We like sitting outside at Pelican's Perch and watching the people go by. Nothing better on a hot summer day than their fish sandwich, sweet potato fries and a cold beer!

Visited Pelican's a couple of times during our week at the beach. The food was pretty good and the oysters were the best that we had all week. Don't expect much in the way of service. The servers act as if they have worked here for a hundred years. I would still go back so......

Once again the Pelicans Perch has met expectations and exceeded in the sweet tender all you can eat crab leg dinner. The sides I ordered were absolutely delicious. The Mac and cheese homemade and the salad with blue cheese dressing very fresh and tasty. But those sweet succulent crab legs.... Oh my so good!

Burgers were delicious! Onion rings and cole slaw were excellent! Haddock fish was delicious - best my husband has ever eaten! Salads were really good too! So good, we had to come back a 2nd time before we left the beach!

Our family of 13 enjoyed a lovely early dinner. I ordered the crab cake appetizer and was pleasantly surprised! The crab cake had loads of crab and our waitress was a delight!

I had the fried shrimp and sweet potato fries. Fries were soggy and inedible. My husband also had a fried meal with shrimp and oysters. They have a nice bar but no option for frozen drinks...at the beach which was very confusing!! Beer was not cold. Just overall something to fill us up and not a great choice. Would not... More

Lunch at Pelican's Perch was our first stop on the island when we arrived to start the family vacation. Our rental house was not available, so lunch was on our list. Pelican's offers relief from the heat & sun (if you choose to sit inside). I like their fish sandwich & potato salad & of course, iced tea. Great meal,... More

I really had high hopes for this place because it has some decent reviews and is in such a great location in OIB. There were four of us and only three or four others in the restaurant at 745am. I found the menu disappointing. The service stunk, there's no better way to describe it. I ordered coffee and drank that... More
