We own a vacation home in Gearhart, OR, about half an hour from Pelicano. The place was recommended strongly by a local friend a couple of years ago when we bought the house. Since she's never steered us wrong, we tried it. We've been back...More

Awesome meal - and frankly quite a surprise! My wife and I came to Ilwaco with another couple by boat and selected Pelicano because it was right at the harbour. The food was absolutely excellent. The chef was creative - but not overly so. Good...More

Shelly and her husband Jeff have owned this restaurant for a few years. It's on the marina in Ilwaco. Nice view, but the really great part is the feeling of being part of their family. And the food? Really good. Ended up last night with...More

First off, when we had to wait a tiny bit (15 -20 min) with a reservation, they gave us drinks. Nobody at home (in Dallas) ever offers a drink for waiting, so I was pretty happy! We ordered the oyster appetizer, a salmon entree and...More

Local, fresh seafood. Classic and innovative cocktails. Great port view. Menu changes monthly to reflect current local catch & seasonal produce. Helpful, caring service from our wonderful staff. Everything we serve, including the bread and pastry, is made by hand in our kitchen.
