Amazing beer and great service

Our first stop for lunch on our trip down the Oregon Pacific Coast was at this highly recommended brewery and restaurant. I order the clam chowder and enjoy very much. My husband, who is a fanatic of fish and chips, tried and also enjoy. We have the onion ring for appetizer and was so good. We... read more

We visited Pacific City so I could run in the Cedar Creek Beach challenge. It started and finished at the Pelican Brewery. Great location and atmosphere right on the beach. Race activities finished up just as the brewery was opening the patio for lunch service. So we got an outside table with no wait. I mention this because it was... More

We liked this busy busy restaurant though the noise level was horrendous. I had the butter lettuce salad and my daughter the house salad with chowder which was very good. The chowder a bit too thick for my taste but I heard no complaints. Wonderful beer selection.

Have looked forward to eating and drinking here for several weeks and it didn't disappoint. Yes, we had to wait to be seated, but that's to be expected. The server was very attentive and brought our drinks and had to come back several times as we had problems deciding what to eat. Our son had a cheese Flatbread and said... More

Food was okay. Not many gluten free options (or any of I recall) which is disappointing as a regular customer said they had taken those options off the menu. Nice deck though! View of the ocean was lovely.

Weekday buffet was okay, ran out of eggs and lacked serve ware for several items. We had to ask to get coffee and a drink menu and then had to track down our waitress for our check. Too bad we couldn't get a growler to go, the beer looked good. Good view of the coast and easy to find.

Holy smokes expensive. Been here twice. Once I just looked at the menu and then ran out. The second time was with a friend and we both ordered beers and took them to the beach. Skipped food it's just too expensive. Go across the street to the market! They have exactly the same items and for a more reasonable price.... More

The food used to be so much better! The location is beyond grand. The food is expensive and average in flavor. Pick up beer and take it to the beach - skip the food.

We visited here 2 nights in a row while on vacation. Great atmosphere & beautiful view, located right on the Coast. Great selection of beers & cocktails. Awesome onion rings and the BEST clam chowder. A bit pricey, but definitely a great place to visit. Can get very, very busy on a weekend night, but that just means they do... More
