Description: This is where it all started back in 1996. Envisioned by three inspired founders, a little run-down beachfront building began its transformation into the international icon it is today. The only beachfront brewpub in the Pacific Northwest, this inviting establishment welcomes guests with tantalizing beer cuisine, intimate brewery tours and, arguably, the most incredible beach patio experience around. Gaze in awe at Oregon’s largest Haystack Rock. Watch the surfers. See the sun set. Order another beer.

Recently went there for lunch. Ordered the Pale Malt Salmon and fish and chips. The salmon was kinda thin and sat on a bed of sweet potato quinoa cake, with side of nearly burnt brussel sprouts. The sweet potato cake was neither sweet or tasty and salmon covered with roasted hard seeds . Hard enough to almost crack a tooth. There is not much to this dish at 26 dollars. It's just over priced and I didnt find it appealing for flavor or quality. The fish and chips were a mix of ok to just ok, some pieces kinda dry and thin, others decent, that for 19 dollars. You would think a beer made right there would be about 5 a pint but 7 dollars is just over priced and a glass of wine about 9 dollars. Have no doubt other things on menu might be tasty and good, but for what we had for about 55 dollars, it just was mediocre and over priced.

So the waitstaff was fantastic and the ambiance all kinds of fun. Good beer, mediocre food. Would order the calamari again. Sent back the cuippino; old fish and previously frozen potatoes in a flat tomato sauce. (Potatoes in cioppino? Please no!.) Fish and chips ok. You can get away with a lot when the views are that amazing.

The staff was friendly and surprisingly quick but the food was overpriced for the quality, I've had better food for my dollar. We had the fish and chips and Dungeness crab mac and cheese, they both tasted Very Bland it was nothing special or memorable. Felt that Pelican Brewery was WAY overrated.

Seated in a good spot with great views of the beach. Waitress was awesome! Provided us several samples of different beers we wanted to try. Food was good. A bit pricey but it is the beach. Blackened chicken linguini was tasty. Burgers wings etc. Nice spot for lunch!

Food was great and the view was even better. Get there before sunset and watch it from the beach or deck of the Pelican.
