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!!

When we arrived at the end of the traditional lunch hour the restaurant was very noisy--almost impossible to converse. Thankfully the noise dissipated as patrons started to leave. Our order was taken quickly and efficiently. Calamari was excellent--best choice of our meal. Oysters were small but also very good. Our disappointment came with the fish and chips. We went with...

I just love the fresh seafood at the Pelican Grill. This is our go-to seafood place. Our latest visit did not disappoint. The service is efficient and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. My lobster roll was excellent! Everyone at our table was very pleased with their choices. A definite highly recommend!

We had the calimari and lobster rolls. As maritimers, we are pretty picky about our lobster, this was so so good! You could really taste the true flavour. The fresh cut fries and salad we perfect sides. If they offer the maple creme brulee, don't even think twice about it, it is so fresh!! We will be back.

Pelican Grill grew out of a fish market and serves fresh fish and seafood. The owners are a presence and do all to make their patrons happy. It is a very busy place so reserve. The oysters were excellent and well-shucked. The fish looked terrific. My only criticism would be on the signature lobster roll. There was lots of lobster... More

Went to lunch with three others. Oysters were fabulous and $1.50 each. All other food was great. We were all happy with all items ordered. Staff was friendly and efficient. Don't be put off by its location in a strip mall.
