We recently vacationed on the Oregon Coast and stayed in Oceanside. On one of the first days there, we drove down the scenic road to Pacific City and had dinner at The Pelican Pub Brewery and Restaurant. Wow! We were traveling in the off-season and there was still a line, but it was so worth it to get in. The wait staff provided great service and they also made our kids feel comfortable and happy (so small thing). The halibut and salmon were terrific. I had gourmet pizza with a crust made from their microbrews and it was soooo good. My kids were able to order off a kids' menu or order a half-order from the grown-up menu and the food was prepared for them as real food should be (and not just pulled out and microwaved while they cooked the grown-up meals). And oh the beer. Yummy wonderful beer. Deserving of a review of their own, that beer. :-) And lest you think it's only about the beer, we traveled back to the Pelican for meals twice more on our trip and once was for breakfast. With breakfast, it's not so much about the beer and more about watching the beach. Great all-around experience.
