We first when to the Pelican House but read the reviews and decided to leave and try the Oar House. What a mistake. The onion rings and home made chips that are so famous were dripping in grease. The fish and chips were so over cooked the crust had to be cut with a knife. FOOL ME ONCE SHAME ON YOU. The atmosphere is like a bikers bar not a nice tourist Resturant. We were so disappointed since our family rarely gets to eat out. We should have stayed at the Pelican House where at least the view is great and the beer brewed on site.

This place should be on the beach and not the Pelican! The food is great, prices reasonable and the service good. The beer and sodas are piped through refrigeration, so they are nearly ice cold and refreshing. The tap selection could be bigger, but is well represented. I had a great drink from the bar, Rum Passion or something like that, and it was great. The cook-owner came out to check on us and make sure the meal was satisfactory. My bro had the meatloaf which was "the bomb." Good pub food with killer homemade onion rings-melt in your mouth! Pass on warm beer, long waits and overpriced poor food at the Pelican, and hit the Oar House.

Came in for dinner one evening while attending the excellent Pacific City Birding and Blues Festival. Had first tried the Pelican Pub but the lines were way too long. Went to the Oar House hoping for a similar experience.

The Oar House was pretty empty so it was easy to find a seat. The inside is similar to many pubs and grills but there is no view like you get with the Pelican Pub, part of the latter's popularity.

Service was good and the server was reasonably attentive. I ordered a char-broiled breast of chicken with veggies and a side salad. Everything was fine, nothing exceptional. The veggies were green beans, and the chicken breast was large, and not overcooked as is often the case. I didn't try the beer, which is certainly one of the attractions as it is a pub.

Overall I rated it average although I'd put the experience as above-average, somewhere between average and very good.

Perfect for an inexpensive family dinner. Menu offers steaks to pasta, soups to salads. You really should try the homemade chips.

Been here several times for lunch. The food is always fresh and dependable. Always leave satisfied with plenty of leftovers. Decor is clean, bright, and fits the beach and pc community.
