We stopped in at the Pelican a couple of times on our recent vacation to Pacific City. Let me state that while the food here might be your average, run-of-the-mill pub food (not especially noteworthy; but also not terrible whatsoever) the beer here is certainly not. The beer is EXCEPTIONAL. If you like beer, you have to stop here. Even if you are not a beer drinker (like me), you will WANT to stop here after giving it a try.
This is craft beer at its finest.
I am not a beer drinker at all, but our first night in PC we stopped in at the Pelican and I tried a Kiwanda Cream Ale. I fell in love with it. In fact, I began to crave another taste. When we took day trips, I requested we stop in at the Pelican for a beer on the way home just so I could have another one. Now that we are back home, I still desire another Cream Ale and have not found any other beer that comes close to satisfying me. Those who know me and my aversion to beer can vouch for these statements as a glowing review ... because I NEVER ask to stop anywhere for a beer nor do I ever crave a beer. Never; until now.
My guest sampled a couple of the other beer offerings, all award-winning, and concurred that each was fantastic. You will not be disappointed.
In addition to the great beer the service was friendly, the views are amazing, and the pub itself was clean and spacious with a good amount of outdoor seating available directly on the beach and overlooking the haystack rock. The Pelican is worth a stop whether you are staying in Pacific City or just passing through.
