Yes, it's a nice spot at the beach overlooking Cape Kiawanda and Haystack Rock, that's the good part. The service was very good. The food (we had five of us for breakfast) was not very good. And we lived in Oregon for many years, too bad, but they get the tourists!

The night we went the weather was amazing with a perfect sunset. The food was decent but my tri tip sandwich had a good amount of chewy fat. The flavor was great but the fat subtracted notably from it. Big wait but I really liked the text notification so we could do other things while waiting.

I have been to this brewery and the one in Tillamook. Both have good beer and food. The Cannon Beach location is far busier but the surrounding area is more inviting. If you enjoy microbrews you need to try Pelican Brewery no matter the location.

Stopped at the Pelican on the way down the coast. The salmon BLT was good. We both had a beer. They have a number home brews on tap. The prices were HIGH for lunch. The Pelican has great views of the oceanside.

Good pub to get a drink from and use the restrooms whilst at the cape, its pleasant inside and the staff are good. But a bit pricey and can't take a while for items to arrive, its a busy place.

The food was just fine. Service was ok. View was epic. The wait was almost 2 hours. The prices were ridiculous for the food that was served.

Stopped for lunch arrived at 2pm and waited an hour. The chowder was good, but short on clams. The fish and chips were good but not much there. The brew was ok but nothing awe inspiring. Good but not great

Love it here. Very busy, but we were seated and served quickly. Fish n chips were perfect and the clam chowder is wonderful. Oh the beer! Of course it's GREAT.

Decor was pleasant, service excellent, but the food was just average. Had the slow cooked tri-tip which was still tough.Sides were good. Salmon was good but nothing exceptional. Pilsner was ok. Had a parking lot which is a plus.

Fish & Chips - properly cooked fish, great breading, good sauce Fish Tacos - properly cooked fish, good spice in the veggies, quinoa corn salad was fantastic - need to sell that by the quart/gallon for picnics (dare I say on the beach). Cream Ale was great, as well as the Stout. Rest of the flight just there.

Thank Stew R
