The service is good but can be improved. A little extra training of the staff would make a vast difference especially how to function during busy seasons. However, I would encourage others to experience dining there.

This will not be my first choice next I come to Montego. The place is very nice, the service is fast and good, but the price is a little high for what you can find in other places.

We stopped by the Pelican Grill with our Jamaican friends as they suggested it when we inquired about a dinner place to go. The food and service were great. We had fried shrimp and some had steak, and all was done very well.

Ate here 5 times over 2 weeks. This restaurant has been in business over 50 years. The food is very good, and the prices are reasonable. The menu is a mix of Jamaican, pasta dishes, fish and vegetarian. Definitely something for everyone.

We were a large group, well served and well satisfied. We shared coffee, fruit cups, vegetable spring rolls, Stamp & Go, the Jamaican sampler plate and ice cream. Everyone was happy with their selections. In Montego Bay, this is family dining at its best.
