“Fabulous Beach Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Have been here twice now. The first time was just two days after opening.Although I anticipated some level of chaos so soon after opening,I wanted to see the new spot.
What a pleasure! The place was packed but the staff was totally organized and on top of everything.
The restaurant is the fun,slightly hokey beachside spot you would expect. There are bars both inside and outside on the deck,which ajoins the town pier.
The food is way better than beach food and the choices and specials varied.
It is just such a fun place to dine.

I am not an outside eater since we don't smoke however just to be able to have the view of the beach was a winner for us

“Great ambiance AND good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Sitting on the deck, overlooking the Atlantic, the beach and the pier....there are not many more beautiful spots. The Funky Pelican offers this kind of seating, along with very good burgers, grilled fish sandwiches and plates and fabulous waffle fries. Happy hour drinks are well priced, although it's certainly not top shelf wine, but for $4 a glass, who can complain?!

“Unacceptable & deserves no customers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Told a 30 min wait, 32 min in I was told 5 min more. No prob if there weren't 20+ OPEN TABLES THE ENTIRE TIME as 8+ groups waited. They said they were "transitioning from breakfast to lunch". Apparently this is how they treat locals, those who patronize our local establishments in the slow months. I'd complain about the smell, but the word "funky" is in the name. So many great spots close by, no reason to ever bother considering this place.
