Great beer, good food, a bit pricey

Views are awesome, beer really is wonderful award winning beer. Food is good but a bit pricey. I'm not usually a big dessert person, but the desserts here are surprisingly great. Get dessert first.

Small portions, overpriced but: Good food, great service, excellent location (right by the beach-ask for haystack room seating) and the new dessert menu is to die for!

Fabulous view. Excellent beer. Bring your growlers. Food not as good as it used to be. Jam packed in summer, so go off season or off-time during weekdays if you can.

My boyfriend and I love the Pelican Pub & Brewery. The Kiwanda cream ale is to die for. I got a delicious plate of the chicken and pesto pasta and he got the crusted salmon with onion rings. While the wait can be long (sometimes 2 hours) the staff does a really good job of keeping things moving. They don't... More

We had a coupon from the Inn across the road that included a beer sampler tray and we don't drink but our server was very understanding and worked out a deal for us. The food we had was very tasty. We just had 3 small plates and watched the sunset!

I have been here many times over the years and always had a great experience with the beer and the food and the wait staff and fortunately for me the weather. I love this restaurant it's fun to be in its very large with beautiful outdoor seating that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and yet another Haystack Rock. It's virtually on... More

We were here for Sunday lunch during February. After a stroll on the beach, we stopped in for lunch. We didn't try the beer since we had more driving to do. The food was good...and the view excellent!

I actually thought the food was pretty good, it was overpriced but it was good. The service was great too. We had a guy in his 50's who was very nice and great with the kids. However the portion size was bizarre. We had kids meals & adult meals. The kids fish and chips were almost the exact same size... More

First of all, we had no idea that a marathon was going on when we arrived to have lunch. It was CRAZY! Tons of people everywhere. The finish line was just out in the parking lot so that made parking a little hectic, but not really an issue. When we entered the restaurant, the wait was 45 minutes. We just... More
