“Nice place for a sunny day lunch...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

In the area and wanted to eat near the water. Found the Pelican Nest thru a phone search. Very nice looking, open atmosphere and beautiful deck area with docks. Great place to eat, enjoy the sun and to watch the boats coming in and out.

Nice inside bar area open to the deck that looks like it would be a really fun place for happy hour or evening out or hanging out on the weekend with friends.

Wait staff was great, fast & friendly! Food was very good and hit the spot.

“good food, but deck is smelly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

We picked this funky looking place after visiting the beautiful beach, and although the wait staff was pretty nice, it felt like they kept forgetting little things, like I ordered macaroni salad and they brought fries, then the wait staff didn't come back for like 5 minutes to check and see if everything was correct. When I told her the mistake, she corrected it right away, so that was good, but at times we felt neglected. My wife had king crab legs which were great, my son had grilled salmon which was also great. I had a fish sandwich which was good tasting. We choose the bayside desk to eat. The view wasn't that great, you're starring at an old swivel bridge covered with rust and seagulls. No pelican's in sight. In fact the waitress said she's never seen a pelican while she's been working there!
As we left the restaurant, we stopped in the men's restroom, and the toilet was overflowing and flooding the bathroom with 3 inches of water. When I told an employee, they said "ya we got the memo", but didn't seem too concerned.
