“Excellent Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Went here with my parents for dinner during our vacation to the OBX. Was recommended to me by someone who lives in Kitty Hawk. All of our dinners were excellent! I had the shrimp and grits and finished every last bite. I had never had grits before and it was something I wanted to try on vacation. The wait to be seated was 50 minutes but we checked out the gift shop and Wright Brothers artifacts while waiting. Our waitress was also wonderful! Highly recommend checking out this restaurant if you're in the OBX!

“Good food good atmosphere.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

They easily accommodate larger parties. The wait isn't too bad early. Food is good. Risotto featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Kids meals served on frisbees. Bartenders pour a strong martini.

“The Pelican Soars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

You'll probably have to wait for a table but it'll be worth it. Tip: IF there are only two or three in your party, seek out the bar and you can eat there at the counter. Most people wait outside with a good, stiff cocktail at the Pelican Roost, with a championship view over the dunes to the Atlantic.
We saw a flock of 52 (counted 'em!) pelicans soar past us last week. The food is always good, and I especially recommend the seafood risotto, the scallop dishes and the pizza. And you'd better save room for key lime pie or coconut pie. Those are some of the best desserts at the OBX.

“Best pizza on the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We go to the Black Pelican every year for dinner. Never a disappointment. Great atmosphere and the best pizza on the beach. The Lifesaver drink from the bar is a must have! Always a bit of a wait so either get there early or late if going with large parties. One of our favs!

“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Went to BP last night and sat at the bar for dinner. Never a bad meal here. Well worth the wait in the summer!
