Amazing. Grateful that they were able to pull of a surprise with a friend dropping off stuff earlier in the day including pre-paying for a bottle of wine. Food, I had the scallops and they will forever be my favorite scallops I've ever had. Presentation and host were awesome. Would recommend for anyone, anytime.

Clam chodder . You only taste the over salting. Lobster fetuchini way to much salt. Taste it yourself.

The close proximity of the tables and open atmosphere made it loud in the restaurant and it was difficult to have a relaxed conversation at our table. The food and service was great.

I guess the only problem at Pelican during the height of lunch and dinner is the noise level I wonder whether u have looked into that aspect Lately because of your Oyster special I have been coming at 13:30 to take advantage of the oysters following lunch and also by 14:00 the noise level has lessened to a point where I can hear my companions voice Otherwise everything else is excellent .

We really enjoyed our lunch! Panko crusted haddock was delicious, as were the crab cakes- we bought some on the way out to take home. Our server was pleasant and efficient. All good.

I often come to Pelican for lunch but my last visit for a family birthday dinner was my first time in the evening. The food and service was outstanding as always and the atmosphere was even better than in the daytime. I can't recommend this place strongly enough (unless you have a severe shellfish allergy- then I would skip it).

Great romantic dinner. The chorizo and shrimp dish is a real gem. Service was fair for a busy time but not incredible.

The server was attentive and quick to serve drinks and lunch. The fish and chips was great. Had the panko coating and it was delicious.

We really enjoyed our lunch..the food, the service was excellent & the food was fresh & well prepared. We did however find our seat area very very noisy. We would not sit there again. There needs to be some soft surfaces to absorb noise/voices. We were surrounded with only hard surfaces & it was bad. We all commented on it. We sat in a small area of 2 tables I think...one for four people & one for 2. Why are restaurants happy with such loud surroundings as it makes it hard for conversation. Food & friendship! That's what it is all about. We'll be back but sitting somewhere more quiet.

Best restaurant ever. But I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed that the fish tacos were removed from the menu.
