Loved this place for the delicious fresh fish and comfortable friendly atmosphere. Pride of ownership shows! Absolutely the BEST crime brûlée I have ever tasted in my life! It rivals the Fairmont hotel's creamer brûlée in Edmonton and Lake Louise. I liked the Pelican's better!!! 10 mins away from airport. In an unassuming strip mall. Visited between 3-4:30pm so there...

Fairly small grill associated with a retail outlet for seafood & other fish products and condiments. Ample wine list with reasonable prices. Lunch menu is great with plenty of choices. Service was superb. Can't wait to return for lunch or dinner, or maybe even a decadent lobster/eggs "Benny" for brunch.

Got in without reservation, which was a surprise even on a weeknight as the place is usually very busy despite a stiff price tag. Instead of the main meal we opted for a selection of appetisers. Oysters were delicious, as were mussels in garlic cream sauce. Fish tacos and crab cakes were so-so, so will not repeat. Rather will try... More

We knew as soon as we entered that it was going to be a good dinner. Friendly welcome, prompt service, efficient wait staff and good food at a reasonable price. This restaurant was filled to capacity and a reservation is recommended. Will we go back? You bet we will!

I keep going back to the P. G> and every now and then I find a new variation on an old reliable. This time it was a salad Niçoise with a twist. The one I make has potatoes and green beans and canned tuna, I like the one I make but, I love the one the pelican Grill makes. Tea... More

Such an amazing dinner!! Been here twice and had the same dish because I LOVED it!! Maple Salmon with mashed potatoes- so great I dream about it! I HIGHLY recommend it! My boyfriend enjoyed his meals (first - fish and chips, 2nd time - fish stew). Reasonably priced for what you get. Enjoy!!
