At the Pelican Pub & Brewery the atmosphere is laid back, but we take our beers very seriously. With five award-winning beers available on tap and bottled year-round, you'll never be disappointed. But we make it our mission to always have some extra seasonal or one-off beers on tap to keep things interesting. Schedule a brewery tour to learn more.

We were here for lunch and two dinners. There aren't many choices in PC but we were fine with that! I recommend the soup and salad combo for lunch. The chowder was delicious and the salad was hearty and fresh. For dinner, we shared flatbread and the delicious Haystack Salad accompanied by the beer taster (7 beers) one night and... More

... what's not to like?? Pelican Pub and Brewery is, to me, first and foremost a brewery. Their beer is found all over the Pacific NW. And it is some good brew, too, from the Tsunami Stout to the McPelicans Scottish Ale. These two examples are highly rated not just by me but by 'Beer Advisor' reviewers. The food ...... More

Second time here in two months. Bill was $79 for two adult dinners, three kids meals, two beers, and three kids drinks. $92 with tip is just unreasonable for what you get. We knew it going in but will exercise other options in the future. The kiwanda cream ale is really good though.

Service and food were good but a bit pricey for what we got. Still, one of the best views as it is right on the beach. Didn't have any specials so we had fish which was good but no different than any family restaurant, just expensive. Had one of their local brews and it was very good.

We stop there after hiking Cape Lookout. Beer was fantastic. Order a bowl of clam chowder. Soup was great, however serving size was more like a cup. Server was very friendly. This was our second time visiting this pub.

I had the tri tip BBQ sandwich. It was delicious. The stout and IPA beers the group ordered were also tasty. Our server was pleasant and helpful. The view of the beach was great even though we ate inside instead of on the deck. Prices were not bad given the location and other factors.

My husband & I really enjoyed our food and beer here. I had the fish tacos, which were a little messy to deal with, but they were hands down the very best fish tacos I have ever had. I eat fish tacos whenever & wherever I can get them; these were devine. My husband had a spicy burger, which he... More

Fish tacos are one of my favorites, so I had to try them here. A little on the spicy side but very tasty. Loved the jicama - added a sweet to balance the spice.
