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.

Live music was nice on Friday night. We came in with our son around 8:30 after a long day of traveling. We enjoyed our food. Not a big beer selection but ok. Atmosphere is laid back. Would return.

I had the club wrap, and it was gi-normous! The bacon was oh-so crispy and the sweet potatoe fries complimented. The wait staff was very friendly. Great for lunch.

Sat at the bar and enjoyed our bartender's banter and service. The soup and fish bites were delicious and our drinks were worth having a second! Really loved the vibe of this place!

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
