“Pelican Grill is outstanding!”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

As Jamaicans now residing in the United States, it is always a pleasure to return home and always know that at Pelican Grill we will encounter wonderful people, great service and authentic Jamaican food at a very reasonable price! From breakfast to dinner everything is amazing! As for dessert... love the Pelican Rum Pudding!

“Nice clean place”
Reviewed June 18, 2011

This was our first visit to Montego Bay we only stayed one night and then headed to Negril. We asked a few locals where we should eat they suggested Pelican and also Buccaneer.

The next morning we walked down to Pelican. When you first walk in its very welcoming and clean. The service was great. I think a lot of people expect the service to be as quick as restaurants are in America. We know Jamaica time so we didn't except a quick meal. We did have to check out of our hotel by noon and only had an hour to walk down the hip strip eat and walk back and we made it in time.

Food was good not incredible but good. The only real complaint was the cashier didn't give us back the right USD amount for the currency exchange. Shorted us about $10 USD. But once we said something she was so nice you could tell it was an accident. She apologized a number of times.

Pelican is a good place for Breakfast I do not know if I would return for dinner.

“Great place for breakfast.”
Reviewed June 12, 2011

We went there multiple times for breakfast. Great options and their breakfast potatoes and the fruit smoothies were particularly memorable. I would definitely go there again, if I ever visit Montego Bay again. The restaurant is also at a great location, right across from the water.
