“Solid Performance from a Great Dinner Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We ate at this place twice during the week of September 14-21. Both times the service was attentive and responsive. The food was really good; we ordered specials for most of our entrees. The seasoning was good...not too salty. An exception was the clam chowder that was very salty but that may be expected. Portions are large and allowed for lunches using the leftovers. This place is very busy even in the "off-season" but we were quickly seated when we arrived about 6pm. The early-bird diners are departing at that time.

“An Outer Banks institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

My wife's family has been eating here for decades and I can see why. The seafood was delicious and it was well worth the wait. There's an outdoor bar to have some cocktails while you wait on your table. The inside is rustic and that's how we like it.

“Excellent Day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We enjoyed lunch here on Saturday, 9/21/13. I had the seafood pizza and it was fresh & delicious. My husband ordered the Chef's Pasta & it was also delicious. The prices were reasonable, atmosphere great and service was impeccable. We travel often & to find a place that meet the criteria above can sometimes be a challenge, unfortunately.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The Black Pelican was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The flat bread was very nice. We had baked Oysters and a Wood Fired Pizza. I don't know what they did to the pizza but it's crispness was perfect and the taste was amazing - one of the best I have had. The atmosphere was good and very inviting. The service was great too. There was plenty of parking and we would definitely recommend this restaurant. I imagine the view during the day would be nice as it's on the coastal road. Beware the kitchen closes at 9.30.
