Stopped in to check out the Pelican. We sat at the bar while waiting on a table near the window. Bar tender super friendly and laid back. Nice view from corner table after being seated. We tried shrimp and blackened fish tacos. They were served with potatoe sliders ---not your typical fries. The tacos and sliders were both very good.... More

We enjoyed the food here, not 5 star, but good for a day on the Cocoa Beach Pier. Pleasant atmosphere, not overpriced.

Nothing to write home about. Bar food and cold beer. Friendly bartenders and good service. Nothing that stands out but nothing tocomplain about.

We've been here many times over the years and so came out again, and looking forward to a couple of appetizers and drinks to start off before our meal ,,, the snippy bartender was quick to correct "my" error basically telling me I made it up or am looking at the wrong listing for this restaurant . I wasn't looking... More

We had a corner table facing the pier. It was beautiful view. The food was very good. Typical bar and grill food. This place was all about the view. They wanted $20 to park outside of pier. Parked for free 2 blocks away and walked.

Stopped by for dinner and had a good time. We chose to eat from the pier and the views were amazing and completely worth the cover fee. We first got drinks at the Riki Tiki Bar and then had dinner at the high tops on the pier. Service was friendly but average since it took a long time to get... More

First of all the views are magnificent as you are right on the ocean. We went with friends and arrived around 2. We were seated immediately and you couldn't beat the location of our table. My wife and I had fish tacos blackened and they were awesome as were the fries. Our friends had the mahi reuben which looked great... More

Stop here every time we come to Cocoa Beach - last day lunch tradition. Everything we've ever tried here is amazing, from the seafood dip to the foot long hot dogs. Beautiful views, good service - wouldn't recommend coming here if you're in a rush, though. The staff is nice but they can get a little busy.

We went on a whim on a Monday night. While we waited for our table, we went to the Rikki Tiki Tavern for a drink. The bar is at the end of the pier, so the view is great. The bartenders are busy, but the service was fantastic. When our pager went off, we reluctantly left the bar. We managed... More

Food was very good. Busy place on the pier but we enjoyed sitting on the outside deck watching swimmers on the beach. I had the coconut shrimp.

Cool off at Pelican's Bar & Grill located right on the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier. This casual oceanside bar and grill serves up fresh seafood, famous clam chowder and decadent desserts in a relaxed atmosphere filled with stunning sights and soothing sounds of the ocean. Enjoy favorites like the Bait Pail and the original Cocoa Beach Tacos, or take a walk on the wild side and try the crispy Southern Fried Gator! Unwind with specialty cocktails, daiquiris, coladas and more at our Cocoa Beach restaurant. There's nothing better than a refreshing Castaway Rum Punch on a hot day. Stop to watch the waves roll by or catch your favorite sporting event live on flat screen TVs located around the air-conditioned restaurant.
