The weeknight we were there the place was (unexpectedly) packed with a number of large parties. There were only a couple of people working out front, and they pressed a local friend from down the street into waiting tables. Yet, with a little patience, everyone...More

When you walk into a restaurant during lunch hour and there's no customers, but you hear yelling and swearing from the kitchen... you turn and head towards the door. It was reminiscent of the restaurant Fratelli's' in the Goonies when the kids go looking for...More

My first impression of this restaurant wasn't great. It looks kind of run down, but since their web site says 'crab shack' I let the exterior off the hook. I've been to places in Maine that looked worse, but has amazing food. What should have...More

Awful food and even worse service. Third time trying this restaurant. I'm local and would not recommend to anyone in our area.

We enjoyed our meal. Excellent service. Started with warm garlic bread loaves. Seafood chowder was amazing. Scallops and seafood pot was excellent as were the BBQ ribs which fell off the bones. Lobster was OK. Cant go wrong here!

Pelican's Net is a CASUAL friendly place where people enjoy succulent seafood,steaks, BBQ, and a variety of popular soups & sandwiches in a "coastal Crab shack" atmosphere. We want you to return time and again, so we operate with that in mind by providing creative chef's features with reasonable portions at fair prices with quality in all we do. Graze on icy chilled shrimp, snack on great Calabash style fried seafoods, steamed clams, or tangy BBQ, munch a crisp fresh salad, savor a chef prepared soup or chowder, or "anchor two hands around a sandwich or burger. For an extra treat, feast on a bountiful "seafood steam pot" or "incredible Premium Choice Certified Black Angus Steak". Good food is out credo when it comes to carry-out.
