Delectable entrees of crab bruschetta and prawns "gamba" followed by a seafood platter shared between 3 of us. Deliciously complemented by Pink Lady Apple ciders. Great! Service was efficient and friendly. Suitable for all comers. Try. Enjoy!

Cycled to Williamstown and ended up at Pelican's Landing. I had the kingfish with noodle salad and my partner had the rib eye. Both really tasty and well presented. Service was friendly and unpretentious. A great find. Two for one with entertainment book.

Girls lunch by the water, and all the expectation that comes with catching up! So disappointing to order a Caesar Salad with chicken and what was served was half an iceberg lettuce, some bacon bits that likely came from the local supermarket, no evidence of shaved Parmesan and an almost cooked poached egg! The waitress was lovely but the very... More

Pelicans Landing has by far one of the best positions in Williamstown. Their staff are wonderful, attentive without being overbearing, cheerful and welcoming. Great selection of wines and beers. The food however was very average. Our entrees were great but the fish mains were so overcooked and dry. A specialist seafood restaurant should not be serving prime fish overcooked. We... More

We had about 30 minutes before our ferry returned to collect us so wandered up into Pelicans Landing. It was pleasant sitting on the upstairs verandah enjoying a drink whilst overlooking the jetty. The bar is well set out and staff polite and prompt with their service. They had some great local craft beer to choose from which are fantastic.... More

Been here many times. Each has been different. Depends on which table you get, the crowds, the waiting staff, your own little private life drama. Special occasions[e.g. Xmas] also well catered for.

FIrst time to Pelicans Landing. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Ordered Trio Dips, Seafood platter, chips and salad. Eggplant dip was amazing and seafood platter more than enough for two people. Prices were reasonable, with seafood platter $59. Will come back

Well impressed again by the service (had many EOY Business Dinners here), attentive and even offered special dish to my difficult Vegan Daughter! Meals came out quickly and good local craft Beer was nice and cold. The view is still stunning of city skyline and pier, even had visit by huge Disco Party boat!

It was good that we booked and had a table in the corner by the window because it did get very busy with parties and groups. Darryl was just a terrific waiter - perfectly on time each part of the experience from water to bill. I hope he is appreciated by the management! We shared the seafood platter which was... More
