Food was good, drink menu good, but we had a bad waitress, she just didn't check back with us and we had to get more drinks from the bar.

My husband and I enjoyed a couple of drinks and a meal at Pelican's last night. The service was very prompt and friendly, even though they were very busy. We both had the bbq chicken pita with fries. It was yummy. The atmosphere was lively. A band was setting up to play, but we left before they began. We'll go... More

We arrived later in the evening after spending all day on the beach & were seated outside. They were having karaoke & it was very loud inside. We had 4 kids with us, so this was better. We ordered the mozzarella balls (I think that's what they were called) & they were delicious! I preferred the spicy ranch that came... More

Living in Sunset Beach, we have been to Pelicans Perch a few times and had great experiences. Last night was NOT the case. Myself, boyfriend, and friend walked up to the door and were stopped by an African American gentleman working the door who immediately said to us very sternly, "we are over capacity, stand in a single file line"....

Nice beach bar/restaurant and food and service was ok, but nothing stood out to make us want to return any time soon. We had sandwiches, which were good and served hot, but again, nothing special. Service was good. The best feature was the outdoor seating area which a lot of similar restaurants do not have, and that may be the... More

All the usual bar food staples...burgers, fries, nachos. The pelican bites (fried fish nuggets with spicy ranch) were really yummy.

Decent. It got the job done. Don't get the shrimp tacos or really anything that requires any talent. If you need grilled cheese or a hotdog, go for it. We had high hopes because it's cute inside but really more of a bar food experience.

it's nothing fancy, but the seafood is fresh, the portions were good, and the food was very tasty too. The waitress was nice and friendly and looked after us well (glasses were refilled promptly) even with the busy crowd. As for the food, our party especially enjoyed the mozzarella balls with jalapeno/bacon, the bangin OIB shrimp, and the kids liked... More

Except for the crab cakes. My hubby did not like the crab cakes. I had the French dip sandwich and my son had the kids chicken tenders and both were good. overall we were happy with the price, location, service.
