Being only a few miles from our house, Pelicans Reef is always a suggestion when we want fresh seafood. There is almost always a wait, but It's generally worth it. The food is very good and the service is usually good as well.

We've enjoyed a few carryout meals from Pelican's Reef so we decided to head there and eat in since some of the specials are only available in the restaurant. The one thing I notice every time I am there is that it is crowded - a good sign. We've enjoyed the salads and the fresh fish - ahi tuna is... More

This is a very popular neighborhood gathering spot that we have tried a number of times over the years. I always keep going back, hoping I will like the food more, but sadly I don't. The atmosphere is great -- casual and relaxed, definitely a fun, island feel -- and always crowded. We were there on a Thursday night and... More

I like the blackened grouper - not too spicy at all, really nice and non greasy. Avoid the place on weekend nights if you don't like crowds.

Been here several times and it seems to get better with each visit. Bartenders and waitresses are attentive and friendly particularly, Star. Wide selection of seafood at a reasonable price.

One of the best fish places to eat at in the Cincinnati area. Very great variety of types of dishes.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon with a family group of 5. Decor is what you would expect, pleasant and nothing out of the ordinary. The food was good, everyone in my group was pleased with what they ordered, my caesar with broiled fish was tasty. I would be inclined to visit again. My only issue was that there was hardly... More

This restaurant continues to be our Friday favorite. Wonderful fish tacos. Good beer. Great service. We've eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. I highly recommend.

We have eaten at the Pelican's Reef many times before. It is a nice, clean, family-owned seafood restaurant. The food had always been good. Nothing spectacular, but good and satisfying nonetheless. Our service this time could have been better. Our server was friendly, but by the end of our meal only a few of our glasses and dishes had been... More
