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 Food is a bit pricey and the menu is a tad outdated.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 menís 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 wasnít 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 couldnít 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 didnít have time to sit and rate the 8 or so on tap. Maybe next time I am here.

This place is amazing! If your ever going up the coast you have to send a couple days here. Absolutely stunning at sunset. Great food and beer.

Beautiful location. Friendly staff throughout, but it took quite a while to get a drink order sitting at the bar. It's quite busy there, and seems to be the 1 place all tourists stop at. Once my food came, the bartender was asking the couple next to me if they'd like certain items (side condiments, glasses of water, optional sides, etc.) that weren't offered for myself. Odd. But, friendliness was still apparent. I ordered the fish & chips and 2 of the 3 pieces were overcooked. Good 'slaw and chips though. Great tasting beer, but out of 10 taps, 4 are seasonals and sell out quick. Staple beers are excellent, however. The prices are some of the highest I've seen in Oregon to date, but pretty much what I'd be paying in Canada for similar foods, and equally great craft beer. Good place, but I guess I expected more all around?

One of the most memorable brewpub visits Iíve ever made. Stunning, dramatic location with panorama windows facing the stormy sea. Beers at a quality that few brewpubs anywhere can match and good service. Whenever I try to shortlist the best brewpubs Iíve visited this comes up asmy first thought.

So Iím from the east coast...taking my first craft beer drive up the Oregon coast...stopping in dozens of little towns and taking every beachside/clifftop loop road I can. Well after awhile you start to skip a few loop roads...as you start to get tired and they begin to all look the same. So itís late in the day and Iím about to pass this one loop road when I see a sign that says "Pacific City"...well for no other reason than growing up near Atlantic City...I take the road. A short time later I come around a bend...see a great beach...a sea stack...a dune people are sliding down...so I park near the beach and start taking pictures. As I start to get back into my car I notice the parking lot is for a restaurant...as I walk over just to use the facilities...I notice to my amazement Iím looking at a brewpub. Well we ate...we drank...we were definitely impressed. Even more at the quality of the beers than the location and views as great as they were. To this day my travel partner does not believe I stumbled across this place by dumb luck! (of course for every hidden treasure tripped over...Iíd hate to think how many treasures I missed over the years...fortunately not the Pelican!

My wife and I came here after Portland on our 3-month road trip. One of my bucket list places. Itís right on the beach, to the point where they may have to worry about erosion someday soon. The entry has a gift shop and coolers of to-go beer. The pub is big but cozy and warm, wood lined with low ceilings. We got a table facing the ocean and Haystack. The waitress was attentive and friendly. There were 9 beers on, and a sampler features 8 for $6. Great deal. Tsunami Stout is on permanently- yes. Food was pricier but tasty. Incredible atmosphere, great people, solid beer. Visit here if you get a chance.

Stopped in here after another long day traveling with still some driving to go, so would have liked to relax here a little more. Even so, I got to enjoy it more fully my last visit to OR, so this was my momís turn.
Was packed, but still got a spot at the bar and speedy service.
Selection of their own brews.
Prices seemed average.
Yay! beach. Happened to make sunset last time (very nice).

Good quality food. Big place for being in the middle of nowhere. I can only assume an excellent view as it was pitch black that night. Could see the haystack in the distance and 10 ft. white caps. Beer on tap was really good. Service was slightly above average. Iíd go back if it wasnít in the middle of nowhere. Iíd definitely go during the day, however. A couple taps were spent, :(.
