I had the crab cakes, which were pretty good (not the best). The bread seemed average to me. The salad dressing options were quiet interesting. The service was good, waitress Kim was helpful. The biggest problem was the SMELL, ugh. It smelled like mildew, which gave me bad vibes over the cleanliness.

I usually don't like corn bread/corn muffins, but for some reason I figured I would have a bite. Wow! It was amazing. Dinner was also very good, as was the service. Local beer and wine on the menu a big plus. To top it all off live entertainment from a talented young musician. Great night at Pelican's Net!

Honestly, we stopped in for dinner because we liked the name of this restaurant and wanted good seafood! We were pleasantly surprised. When we first went in, we were the only ones there. Our waitress was very friendly and told us about several local beers on tap from a brewery near by. We enjoyed one of the offerings. My husband... More

After spending the day driving around Letchworth State Park and visiting the local museum were were looking from some place "easy" for dinner, and as Pelican's Nest is across the road from our hotel, it seemed like the obvious choice. Our overall impression was similar to other reviews. The atmosphere felt and decor left a bit to be desired but... More

We were the only people there. Had a local white wine which was a nice option. Had the potato encrusted walleye which was cooked perfectly and a large portion. The cornbread which was provided and the hushpuppies which we ordered were excellent. Service was personable and prompt.

Atmosphere was a little shabby in this restaurant/bar. Waitresses were nice, one male waiter seemed a little stressed. The dinner, well I was surprised. I expected something special, especially as the place was very busy. I ordered the Walleye which was a nice piece of fish, but it was coated with potato flakes, then fried. As I said, it was...

We were in town at a small convention. The place was cute kind of like a home. The waitress was very nice and attentive. Food was great. My problem was the clientele. A young girl obviouly a regular hanging at the bar . We think she was an offduty employee as she kept going behind the bar. Every thing she... More

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.
