We had excellent service! Food was to die for- I had the crab Mac n cheese and the kids menu had lots of options. The view is priceless as well.

We visit the Pelican each time we are close to Pacific City! The fish tacos, fish and chips are some of the best on the menu!

Great view! Best in the area but that's about it. Over priced food of poor quality. It's trying to be something that it's not. The restaurant itself is dark and depressing. Clam chowder is mediocre. I have no interest in going there ever again.

We sat and waited for someone to wait on us for 20 minutes and finally left without being served. Not good.

The restaurant sits right next to the beach so it's a high traffic stop. The staff is friendly; you can choose to sit indoors or out, and the beer was cold. Not too impressed with the food, it was average. Overall, it's a good stop...More

My husband and I split a burger here for lunch while on vacation. The burger was what you would expect for a brewery, good but not great. We had the fries with the burger and they were also good. We did tell the waitress we...More

Love this place – a wonderful setting on the beach! We drove down to attend a special ‘Brewer’s Dinner’ that was wonderful – six course meal, with each course parred with a different brew. A three-hour experience that we will remember for years – the...More

Service rather slow, but very friendly. The food was okay, but nothing more. The beer was just fine, my husband said at least. The restaurant is very nice on the beach, on which you can also drive by car. I was very surprised, so far...More

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.
