Reviews for The Hungry Pelican

We go there almost every week! Nice and friendly staff does not forget their regulars. Get the white fish, stuff white fish (with crab meat) shrimp, grilled scallops, fried oysters, and grilled salmon. Good selection of sides but have to start with their coleslaw which I think is better and fresher than KFC.

Ate here today for first time in years. The white fish and snow fish were excellent. The slaw is some of the best in town. Sweet tea was great as well. However, I do not know how the baked potatoes are prepared, but they were horrible. Tasted like they had been sitting in some warming drawer for days. Cold, strange consistency. The Hush Puppies were bland and cold. I guess advice would be to stick with the fish.

Hungry Pelican is one of the first places hubby and I dined when restaurants were permitted to open at 33% capacity. If you are afraid of a small dining room from the looks of the outside, you need not worry. The inside is way bigger than it appears. There is plenty of space for social distancing. There are a least 2 divided dining rooms and a separate room for bar. The restaurant space is both spacious and cozy.Our server wore a mask. She was friendly, efficient and full review
