Everything was great! We all enjoyed our meals. I have been many times and I will be back many more. Always great food, we all had something different and we were all pleased with our choices. Kids loved the warm chocolate cake for desert!

They have done a superb job dividing the tables. Service and food quality and taste was excellent. A wonderful break.

Le bas pointage pour l'atmosphere est du au bruit ambiant dans votre salle a manger! J'ai mentionné ce fait chaque fois que je vais chez vous! Avoir enlevé les tuiles au plafond a crée cet incomfort. Je continue d'aller chez vous a cause de la qualité de la nourriture, pas pour l'atmosphere.

It's always such a pleasure to go to Pelican. The food is always first class...your tuna tartare is fantastic. My husband loves his oysters. I have a suggestion, if you make oysters Rockefeller they might be a big hit. Dianne

I love the Pelican, always have. The visit yesterday was my first to indoor dining since the crisis started. I was very impressed with how you are handling things. Please make sure that Jim Foster sees this feedback. He and I have corresponded via email numerous time in the past. I will be returning in the coming week to enjoy buck a shuck again. Take care and all the best....../Ross

We had a lot of fun and our server I think had a good time too. I believe he was well looked after by the girls. However, he may have been alone with 1 or 2 new bus people. But no one was complaining and everyone enjoyed their meal. He was quick to respond to our requests and played along with our teasing. He made us feel important. I've now been coming about once a week in the last month and am planning another one next week. I thank our waiter of last week (11th) who told my guest and i about the $1 oysters (we'd had 2 each of the malpeques). Oh boy! were they ever good. I had 2 dozen ! I have brought 8 new guests to date. And I believe all felt very comfortable with the plastic "booths". The way I've described it is that once you are seated and start a conversation, even before food arrives, one doesn't even notice. This has been handled very well. I still have some convincing to do, but, as you know, eating in a restaurant involves trust, and many are not ready to deal with this decision. thank you - i'm so glad you made it back. And PS, 3 of the gals went right to the Fishery dept to buy more oysters and some fish.

A terrific meal, as always. We were particularly gratified by the care that went into making the restaurant safe — both through its physical set-up and through hygiene measures.

The food was delicious as always. The server was wonderful, made us feel special. We were very pleased with what the restaurant has done to ensure safety during this time of Covid. Very important to support Pelican during these times. We do not want to lose this wonderful local restaurant.
