Really busy on a friday night, but the scenery was so nice I didnt mind waiting. Great place to come during a Portland heat wave; it was about 40 degrees cooler than the city today. Beautiful views of the rock with a little fog rolling in. Nice beachfront as well. Outdoor patio looked nice enough, but it was in fact a bit chilly. Inside has two main rooms and a side room that appears to be more for events, but that is where I was seated. Waitress was incredibly friendly and helpful; I think she was sorry for me for being alone at dinner on a Friday :). Anyway, service was great. Food was so so, and my Cascadian Dark Lager was also so so, but I know from experience that they have some winners in their beer lineup. All in all a great place to visit, just take care when ordering your food.

La localité est paradisiaque, rien de moins, mais je m’explique mal comment ça se fait qu’il n’y avait pas de terrasse. En attendant notre table on est allé boire nos pintes sur le bord de la plage pour oublier ce non-sens. La bouffe est moyenne, les bières sont peu spectaculaires ou audacieuses mais bien exécutées. L’ensemble vaut vraiment la peine.

What a location! Plus if you’re staying over the street you can charge everything to your room. Treat yo’self. Pelican beer selection, good if a little spendy food. It was cold as the arctic in there but the view is great.

A superb location for a brewery and pub especially if you are staying in the hotel opposite whihc has great veiws of the beach and the brewery.
A great place to relax.
A must visit place if travelling along the Oregon coast.

WOW. One of the most stunning locations for a brewpub anywhere. It was a cool and foggy day and we still sat outside because it’s simply mind-blowing. The sand dune cliff, the offshore rock. Admittedly the geographic location IS the atmosphere. The interior is nothing special. However, service was very good. The beers are not necessarily exciting, but the stout in particular is excellent. Food was better than expected.

I’ve been here numerous times over the last thirteen years or so. The beer has always been great. The views amazing. The service was great this last time around. And they have a good selection of beers.I always thought the food was good, but this last time, a couple days ago, it was excellent. Go out of your way to visit.

You can get a more stunning location and large spacious bar. Worth the visit even if you are not a fan. Service was efficient, but they were much to busy to really spend time with you. I don’t fault them for this as they had a 2 hour wait and and they had tons of staff, it is just too popular. I was there for a brewers dinner and the food was pretty good but pricey. A must if you can, the location cant be beat.

Larger, family style brewpub with a great view of the sea stacks on the OR coast. Really beautiful inn across the street if you are staying in Pacific City. 30-40 min wait when we were there on a Sunday night; pretty impressive. Food is a bit pricey and the menu is a tad outdated. Seafood options were limited and sandwiches and pizzas did not have any unifying theme. Marinara sauce served with rockfish was very strange. But everything was eaten and enjoyed. For beer, you can get a flight of everything they have on tap; and the beer quality is high. They excel at fringe styles like cream ale, brown ale, foreign stout. They brew to GABF guidelines so win a lot of awards and showcase clean palates and mild hop bitterness. Impressive list. Service was very friendly and the beer/food came out quickly. Now beware that in the men’s restroom the toilets spray water all over the place so be very careful.

Was doing a road trip along the Oregon coast with family and one of the stops on the itinerary was Pacific City. I wasn’t sure if we would be anywhere near Pelican, but ended up following the crew to a beach parking lot that was right next to Pelican. I really couldn’t believe my luck. I was able to sneak over for a couple beers, but the highlight of this place is the amazing location. Giving this only a 5 on Ambiance is an injustice. Pelican sits right on the beach with just an amazing view and a huge patio. Easily the best craft beer location I have visited to date. Service was solid and the selection was decent. There was a sampler tray, but I didn’t have time to sit and rate the 8 or so on tap. Maybe next time I am here.
