Average. Meh.

We got some beers and a couple sandwiches. Felt like we were an inconvenience to the bartender. Sandwiches were average.

Made to order, exceptional! Friendly staff, great drinks! Karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays and that was also a very fun! Looks like a favorite for locals as well!

I realize that the time of year I chose to travel in this area was not peak season. However, that is no excuse for poor food choices. The giant tv's crowding almost all of the wall space told of the kind of crowd a place like this is attracting. Distracted. I should have known better. The service wasn't bad, but... More

We went to the NC Oyster Festival on Ocean Isle Beach and stopped in for an early lunch. The restaurant was well prepared for the crowds as there had plenty of staff on duty. We were seated outside on the patio where we could enjoy people watching and listen to the bands playing next door as part of the festivities.... More

Ours was a group of four, plus our four legged furry companion. We had just gotten into town after a long drive & wanted to eat at place where we could bring our dog & relax. A local salesperson recommended Pelicans Perch. We sat outside on the patio & our server brought out a dish of water for our dog... More

Pelican's Perch is open under new management and we are very excited. I believe Nick will bring this restaurant back up to the standard that we expect. Based on the cheeseburger that I had recently, he's off to a good start. The service was excellent as well. Hopefully all of you will join me in giving this very nice young... More

Stopped in for dinner. Was looking forward to steak but they didn't have on the menu so I got a chicken wrap which was good. My husband enjoyed some seafood. Staff was friendly and there is outdoor seating if the weather permits.

I was starving and this was the first place we saw. But I was glad we stopped here. The food was very good. I had a salad and "pelican bites". My husband had a salad and crab cake sandwich. We both ate every bite. It was so good. The sauce with the bites was tangy with a little kick -... More
