Description: Pelican Grill celebrates the best of the California lifestyle: a beautiful hillside location featuring stunning ocean views in chic Newport Beach, a delectable menu prepared with the highest quality fresh and locally sourced foods, stylish and comfortable décor, dynamic Italian-inspired architecture, a terrace with spectacular ocean views, gracious personalized service, and a fun, happening bar with two huge 9' x 6' HD TVs for watching sports events. In the open display kitchen, Chef Derek Brooks directs a master culinary team, creating an array of innovative seafood and meat dishes that have made Pelican Grill one of the most popular dining spots on the Southern California coast. Dining al fresco on the terrace – which is equipped with hidden heaters from above and below as well as sunscreens for year-round comfort – is the quintessential California dining experience. The generous and balanced wine list features mostly California selections and more than 40 wines by the glass.
