“Recommended Restaurant Hip Strip Montego Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff as we were having a day out in Montego bay. It is located on the sea front. The staff were helpful and the food was good value for money. It was nice to have lunch in a cool air conditioned restaurant.

“Consistent Jamaican and American food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

So this is a diner that just does not change. Same brown leather booths, and wood panels - since 20 years ago it seems. But the food is always hot, fresh, and really tasty. Even the coffee-try it with condensed milk - it's just really good. Burgers and shakes there too. Right on the hip strip.

“Pretty good for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

We were recommended to this restaurant by the taxi driver. It was really good, I had fish, and my husband had the jerk chicken. We were a group of 6. It was not full of tourists, and the service was good. I would recommend the Pelican if your looking for a locals place to eat, that is nice to the tourists.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by for lunch as Pelican was highly recommended by locals. We were a fairly large group and took several tables. I ordered the conch chowder which was relatively tasteless. I also ordered a cod appetizer which arrived as triangles of fried bread with a tasteless fish salad atop. Others tried the goat and were disappointed. Service was very attentive.

“Not Exciting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

The Pelican is a restaurant that has decent food and good service, but is lacking in atmosphere. It is good if you want to try curried goat or jerk chicken in clean surroundings, and with a tablecloth, but not if you want a memorable evening.
