Hubby and I came to the pier on our PC cruise stop. We opted to sit at the bar when a table wasn't available (although one became available right away but we decided to eat at the bar at that point). I had the lobster tacos (excellent), and my DH had the grouper sandwich (I think it was a special)... More

The view was great as it was sunset. Only complaint we stood at the hostess stand for a very long time before anyone came to take our name. Several wait staff just walked by but never offered to help. I've worked as a hostess before & sometimes our wait staff would help us or at least say I will get... More

Restaurant on the pier - pier admission not required. Indoor panoramic seating or tables lining the paid portion of the pier outside with excellent table service. You do have to fight the ocean breeze, but isn't that why you're here in the first place? Austin, our server was awesome - pleasant, knowledgeable, chatty and efficient. We shared a bucket (a...

Ate here two times and was not disappointed. The food is very good. The drinks are very good. Service is very good. View of the ocean and beach is excellent. Big shout out to Destini and Austin for excellent service.

We had a long wait 45 minutes but they let us go to the bar area to wait. There were 13 of us total. They were very accommodating especially sine 6 of us were kids 12 and under. We were able to look at the seagulls and all the glorious view while we waited. Once seated our waiter was great.... More

Popped in here for a beverage and snack - view was so nice from inside we stayed for dinner. Wife had the grilled fish tacos (gluten free) and raved about them! I had the alligator - pretty good too. Happy hour drinks were ok also - but the waves coming in under you were mezmorizing! grab an outside seat if... More

Good view for sure but it's a tourist trap. Too busy, noisy, and service was not attentive. My companion's shrimp tacos were good but nothing to rave about. I had a Lobster Roll, which was sub-par. Cold shredded lobster with mayo on a bun that was so saturated with butter I could've wrung it out like sponge. We didn't even... More

Long wait to get seated. We couldn't believe how busy everything was on a Wednesday. Everyone was friendly. The view was unbelievable! We sat and watched a Pelican be fed on the end of the pier. The food was good, but I would say the view is what would bring me back. The prices were average for a beach front... More

Very nice place near end of pier. View was great. Food was good. Prices not bad. Staff was friendly, waiter was good considering it was into the spring break season.

Cool off at Pelican's Bar & Grill located right on the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier. This casual oceanside bar and grill serves up fresh seafood, famous clam chowder and decadent desserts in a relaxed atmosphere filled with stunning sights and soothing sounds of the ocean. Enjoy favorites like the Bait Pail and the original Cocoa Beach Tacos, or take a walk on the wild side and try the crispy Southern Fried Gator! Unwind with specialty cocktails, daiquiris, coladas and more at our Cocoa Beach restaurant. There's nothing better than a refreshing Castaway Rum Punch on a hot day. Stop to watch the waves roll by or catch your favorite sporting event live on flat screen TVs located around the air-conditioned restaurant.
