Delectable entrees of crab bruschetta and prawns "gamba" followed by a seafood platter shared between 3 of us. Deliciously complemented by Pink Lady Apple ciders. Great! Service was efficient and friendly. Suitable for all comers. Try. Enjoy!

Cycled to Williamstown and ended up at Pelican's Landing. I had the kingfish with noodle salad and my partner had the rib eye. Both really tasty and well presented. Service was friendly and unpretentious. A great find. Two for one with entertainment book.
