Last, but not least, the Peli's poolside bar gives the relaxing vacationer the opportunity to sip a cold beverage while watching the kids enjoy a dip in the pool.

“Loved this for lunch”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

This was a great place for lunch-visited it twice in four days! We ate on the Perch one day and on the patio by the bar another day. The pizza was good and the draft beer selection was good with local NC breweries. We loved the beer prices and the food prices were very reasonable-much better than we thought they would be. Service was good and the atmosphere was nice for a casual lunch.

“If u specialize in pizza how do u run out at 630pm?”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Called at 620 to ask how long the wait for 4 pizzas would be and was told 30 minutes. Not bad!

Called back at 630, surrounded by starving family after long day on beach.

They were out of pizza!

Don't plan on this place for your food needs unless you want them to screw up your families plans.

“Service with a squawk”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

Went there for lunch while we were waiting for our house to finish with cleaning. The ambiance is fantastic, superb views from the perch raised dining area. The food was good with normal American style pub fare. However, the service e was slow and unresponsive. This is not really what I expect on Bald Head Island. We went back three days later for breakfast and service was so slow and poor that several tables of patrons left altogether. The standard definitely needs to come u

“The slowest service I have ever had anywhere”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Let me begin by saying that Bald Head Island is one of my favorite places in the world! I am also not criticizing the quality of the food at Pelicatessen - nothing to write home about, but not bad. However, you can count on waiting for your food - even breakfast - for 45 minutes at the minimum! I am not sure why the service is that painfully slow - I am not sure where they find the staff who can't cook an omelet in less than 30 minutes with a 2/3 empty café, but in our experience it has never taken less than that. The view is OK, but even watching the same people swimming laps in the pool underneath the deck you are sitting on gets somewhat boring after 40 minutes. This morning we had to leave the café when we were informed that after waiting for 45 minutes for our 3 omelets, it would be 10 more minutes before we would be served. There were at most 6 tables occupied at the café at that time. You can get exactly the same food at the small eatery at Maritime Market for the same price and 10 times faster. If you are already at the pool, and want to grab something to eat (figuring you might get hungry in an hour - so plan ahead), by all means, order at the Peli. Vacationers are on the "turtle time" on the Bald Head, but I think the Peli takes this expression much more literally than any other service people on the island.

“Worth a stop ♥”
Reviewed 30 May 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere overlooking the pool area. Cordial servers aiming to please. Food was not over the top, but good and more or less what we expected for the price. Fish tacos were a bit skimpy. Spinach salad was delish. Would go back again
