Outstanding View and Beer

I am giving 4 stars mostly for the award winning beer and spectacular view. The food was good but would give it 3'stars. A great place to visit on a sunny day and sit outside and sip a cold beer and look at and listen to the crashing waves.

We had some of the best service we've had at the restaurant, and the craft beer was fabulous (try the Kiwanda Ale!). Clam chowder was fabulous!

Two hour wait for a party of ten. Definitely not worth the wait. Do not go there on a weekend. The ladies at the door messed up our number twice. So it made our wait time double :(

Right on the beach. No really, right on the beach. Patio steps off to sand. Food is excellent and beautifully presented.

We came to Pacific City specifically to come to pelican. This was definitely my husband's happy place. We both got burgers and tried their delicious bbq sauce. It was very good. My husband loved the sampler tray served on a surfer board. We got a table with a great view of cape Kiwanda. It was the perfect place to sit... More

You really can't beat the view from this restaurant, and that and the beer are the only reasons to go. Otherwise I would rate this as average. The food was good enough, but certainly not fine dining and limited in selections and portions. The service was good, but we also felt a bit rushed. Overall, a worthwhile experience but I... More

I absolutely loved the atmosphere and location of this beach side brewery. Great beer and a lot of bottled options to take home too. The menu wasn't super impressive but the food was good! The service was just ok but, will definitely go back!

The food at the Pelican is always above average but the beer is what we really go there for. There is a beautiful view from the restaurant, a good vibe from the patrons and the waitstaff is always very friendly.

This is a go-to place to eat in PC primarily due to the location (on the beach next to the public parking lot), outdoor patio, and freshly brewed beers. On nice days there is easily an hour wait for seating, but the wait is eased with a text-notification system. Once seated, you'll likely have a nice view of the beach... More

Went with family and it was a great spot for lunch. Service was okay, beer taster is a great deal at $7.00! The food choices are odd for the coast and spendy but everything was good. Had chowder and house salad (very little cheese which I was fine with), husband had the mac n cheese, the clams were not good... More
