Great fish & chip place. The fresh cod is so good it almost melts in your mouth. I have Caesar salad with my Cod and my husband has fries which of course I share. On Friday night is is really packed but getting a table is not too long a wait. Kelly, MaryBeth and Rebecca are delightful to have as... More

Let's start with the waitress.. hope I get her name right Kirsty / Kristy. What a delight to have her serve us. We absolutely loved the onion rings, the popcorn shrimp were very good. The calamari could have been better. The fish tacos were good! I'm a big believer in making things fresh in the restaurant and I know that... More

We were seated and then ignored for about 20 minutes. One member of our party ordered clam chowder, and it did not have a single clam in it! The server/owner's attitude basically was, you get what you get in a big pot of soup. Um, no, not when you're advertising clam chowder. The fish and chips were so-so, and we... More

I was actually surprised. The place is well kept, although the floors could use a good clean. Something sticky on it. But the menu is simple and the restaurant seems to be family run. My seafood cream chowder was good but the cod tasted like it had amonia in it which doesn't make sense as fishes are very sensitive and... More

Family was craving some seafood. Have been to pelican pier before and decided to drive back. We were not disappointed. Calamari and clam chowder were both awesome appetizers. We all tried each other's meals. Breaded scallops, haddock, salmon and popcorn shrimp were all tremendous. We will be back.

I went to Pelican Pier Restaurant today for dinner. I was not disappointed. We ordered the Calamari, Cod Fish and Chips and Fish Tacos. The tacos were amazing delicious. Full of flavours you get 3 in an order. The fish and chips were also delicious I wish they were a bit bigger though. Chips were double fried which gave it... More

Pelican Pier has the best and freshest seafood in Calgary. They will help you pair your meal with the right wine too. They also sell fresh and frozen seafood. Great place for a date or family dinner. Enjoy!!

We have been here before a long time ago but this was by far our worst visit. We ordered two orders of the halibut for $24.99 each. We could not believer our eyes when on the plate came the two smallest, flattest pieces of halibut. Along with it came fries that look like it came from the frozen food section... More

I'm so sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience. That was truly not our intention. We really appreciate your feedback and hope you do give us the chance to make it right! I would like to take this chance to comment on your points.... 1. Size and cost of Halibut – you’re right! Halibut is our most expensive (and least... More

First time to eat here, We all had chowder soup with fish and chips. The fish portions are generous and we found the servers to be polite and attentive. The painting decor gives the impression of more space in this small restaurant, some ornaments are a bit tacky and unusual given its location but overall it's a pleasant spot to... More

We enjoyed the seaside decor at this fish and chips place. The food is OK, just what you would expect, nothing spectacular but edible. Greasy fish and chips.

The Pelican Pier restaurant specializes in a lightly battered fish, fresh cut fries, and homemade chowder, sauces and desserts. The standard fish is pollock but haddock, cod, halibut and salmon are also very popular. Grilled fish and pasta dishes add variety to the menu. For those dining with a non-seafood lover Pelican Pier also offers a choice of chicken dishes.
