I came to Port Mansfield for a fishing trip with my father in law and brother in law and were went to pelican cove both nights we were there. The first night they had live music and the second night they cooked our fish for us and we watched college football. We had a great time! The food is surprisingly... More

After a long day of fishing , this is the place we stop and have them cook out catch. Staff is friendly and drinks ate good. The sweet potato waffle fries are addicting to

If you like delicious fresh fish, I recommend one of 2 options. Either bring your cleaned redfish (always on the ½ shell) or trout, and have them grill or blacken it. Or, if you didn't do so well fishing that day, order their fish, which has always been black drum, and is delicious and as fresh as it gets. They... More

The first time we walked in (well almost walked in) years ago we were blasted by cigarette smoke ... ABOUT FACE! Now that smoking is not allowed inside (deck only), it's a good spot to eat. There's an outdoor waterside deck that we prefer if there is not a game on. The shrimp tacos are so good we can't bring... More

Liked the food. Did not like the bar regulars all turning in unison when we walked in the door. This is a dim lit smoky bar with loud customers who will stare at your wife/daughter. NOT WORTH IT!

Mediocre service. Food is edible/decent. The tables and the place are dirty. We asked the locals where to eat, and were told this is basically it. Didn't try the BBQ place; maybe we should've.

By default, this place wins as the best place to watch the sunset, have a cocktail, and eat dinner too. There simply are no other other options in this fishing town. It's both the local bar and the restaurant to eat at past 4pm (there is another "restaurant/lounge" in town but more than one person warned me about it). It's... More
