Pelican Seafood Market and Restaurant
Cuisines: Lebanese, Seafood
Description: Pelican Seafood sells fresh LOCAL seafood as well as delicious lunches and dinners to eat in or take out. The owners work there and are very pleasant to chat with. I was so pleased to find their menu was a mix of Mediterranean and southern foods with homemade desserts like mamool. We purchased fresh fish and shellfish to cook ourselves and ate lunch there. I would love to write a review. Thank you. Traci Stevenson. tracisbold@gmail.com

Went last Sunday 5pm during my day trip to the area. Read the reviews and was so looking forward to getting some fresh fish cooked up. To my dismay the grill was not opened!!!

Fed 6 people for 53.00 can't complain!!! I called from the beach and ordered take out. 4 shrimp baskets and 2 shrimp burgers which are basically fried shrimp and tarter sauce on buns. The shrimp where fried and seasoned perfectly!! Some of the best fried shrimp I've ever had not heavy or greasy so I was impressed. Onion rings and crinkle cut fries are what you would expect anywhere. Quick service and great fresh food at a fair price definatly will return

Me and my family when down to oakisland to get some fresh seafood and pelican seafoods name came up on many occasions we went there to check them out and I was surprised that for a seafood market there was not that much of a smell. I went to another seafood market the day before called Haag and sons and the smell was horrendous. Anyway we bought fish at a very reasonable price and noticed they also had a kitchen in there. The nice lady there said we fry your fish for u if u would like us to and me and my husband said why not. To be honest it was probably the best flounder grouper and shrimp I've ever had. If anybody plans on going down that way for fresh fish raw or cooked pelican is the place to go

It is nice to get a plate of seafood with mixed grilled and fried. I wish they offered more non-starch sides, but the potato salad was delicious. The lady who helped me make my selections was very helpful.

We were at Oak Island during early April. The restaurant was not open yet but you could order items to go. So, based on their 2nd best crabcake claim I ordered crabcakes and the rest of the group ordered shrimp and striped bass (catch of the day). The woman I talked to on the phone asked me if I wanted the shrimp steamed with light, medium or heavy OLD BAY....that was a first.
We picked up the food and headed back to the rented house. Everything was delicious and if they are the #2 on the crab cake rank...I'd like to know where to get #1. The cake was about 90% crab and just enough binder to hold it together. We'll definitely use them again.
